Texas State Capitol, Austin
A critical difference between PTA and other parent groups is our dedication to advocacy. Public education is our one guarantee for a brighter and better Texas.
Each legislative session we hear about the need to improve public education, and history shows that following the conclusion of every legislative session, we all express our dissatisfaction with the results, wishing we had done more. By attending Rally Day, we are taking action — letting our PTA voices be heard while decisions are still being made.
Attending Rally Day is an investment of your time and resources that Texas students cannot afford for us to overlook.
Help us reach 2,000 attendees! Download the Rally Day flyer here and get the word out! #2K4RallyDay
