The Texas Classroom Teachers Association created 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.

Since then, state-level elections have demonstrated the power that educators can wield when united, and the problems that can arise when too many lawmakers are not teacher-friendly.

Find your candidates running in the 2022 elections, check out our information on what you can do to get involved, and consider planning a candidate forum in your area prior to the elections.

What you need to know before you vote

In this 30-minute video, TCTA lobby team members Paige Williams and Pamela McPeters explain what you need to know before voting in the 2022 elections, which begin with the March 1 primaries. They review the legislative outlook for public education in Texas, how you can find and support education-friendly candidates and why it's so important for teachers to vote to make public education a key issue in every election.
