ParentRally Day Talk: What legislative issues affect Oak Hill Elementary children? What can we do about it?

Guest speaker: Arati Singh, Austin Council of PTAs Advocacy Chair and OHE mom

Did you know...

· that 30% of our local property taxes actually LEAVE Austin to pay for public schools in other cities in Texas?

· the state has actually DECREASED its responsibility in footing the bill for public schools?

· the "Robin Hood" system of school funding is hurting the very students it was designed to help?

· that vouchers (aka money for private schools) are a real threat to public education funding in Texas?

· that all of this means FEWER BOOKS, TEACHERS, COMPUTERS, SPECIAL EDUCATION RESOURCES, AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES for your child???

It is time to get INFORMED and ORGANIZE!!!

Join 1,000 PTA members from all over Texas to ask our legislature to reform school funding, oppose vouchers, and expand Pre-K. Click here for more info: http://www.txpta.org/rally-day.
