Courageous
Connections

In the spring of 2011…
Texas lawmakers cut $6.4 billion for public education.
They left the rainy day fund untapped.
And given the chance to end funding disparities, they walked away – pushing millions of Texas children aside.

That summer…
12,000 teachers got pink slips.

In the fall of 2011…
our children went to school with more crowded classrooms.
Qualified college students lost scholarship funds.

It’ll be worse this year.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Communities across the state are taking action to make sure that schools are equipped to guarantee that all children graduate ready for college and career. Fair Funding Now! is an initiative of IDRA to help. On this website, we will share resources and stories stemming from the initiative. 

See the latest news about the Texas school finance trial. See the slides from Dr. Albert Cortez’s testimony on December 3, 2012, in the school finance trial.
