The Texas Classroom Teachers Association created TexasTeachersVote in 2006 to help educators become more informed and more active in the political process at the state level at a time when education policy decisions in the Texas Legislature were at a turning point.
The 2006 elections demonstrated the power that educators can wield when united, and we believe that the results of the 2016 elections can have a positive impact on education policy in the Texas House and Senate.
As education "reforms" continue to dominate legislative discussions, the 2016 elections are of particular importance. Educators united in voting for teacher-friendly candidates can make a bigger difference than ever.
