Texas PTA supports our system of public education as the major vehicle for perpetuating the basic values of a democratic system of government. This system must be strengthened and continue to be governed by public officials accountable to the public and supported by adequate funding.
Texas PTA supports educational choices within public schools and believes that parents should be involved in the planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of public school choice plans.
Texas PTA opposes voucher systems or tuition credits for nonpublic school tuition and other education-related expenses and believes home schools and other nonpublic schools should meet the same educational standards as public schools.
