Did you know that Texas used the first $1.3 billion of federal COVID relief funds promised to our schools to offset their state budget instead of reimbursing schools for the money spent to open safely? Schools in every other state in the country (except for New York) got federal dollars. Texans deserve better than to have the state steal money intended for our kids.
The second and third rounds of federal COVID relief dollars for schools total $17.9 billion dollars and Texas leaders are deciding now whether to flow them to schools right now. We need to act TODAY to make sure those billions of dollars go to our schools – not the state!
Please add your name to our letter, which will go to policy makers this week.
