Petition request

Some progressive Texas groups want you to sign a petition. Consider these three facts:

(1)Texas has declined from 32nd to 40th in spending on education in the last 5 years
(2)Texas now spends $1500 less per student per year than the national average
(3)Texas teachers now are paid $6800 less per year than the national average

If that doesn't make you mad, I don't know what will. Sign the petition here.

Let me try to make you a bit happier: at least you don't live in OKlahoma and try to make a living as a teacher.

If I moved back and got a teaching job there, I would lose $30 thousand-- THOUSAND!-- annual income!!!!! That's like a whole 'nother teacher!
