Where Things Stand and What YOU Can Do About It
How much do you REALLY understand about the way Texas public schools are funded? And how does that finance system factor into the multiple lawsuits recently filed by school districts across the state?

If you are one of the many who could use a 101-level primer on these topics, please join us at this first of three events designed to help our community learn more about being effective advocates to enhance the public education system.

Keynote speakers J. David Thompson (Partner, Thompson & Horton, LLP) and Dr. Wayne Pierce (Executive Director, Equity Center) will provide a basic overview of the current public school finance system and the current school finance lawsuits.
