Texas Becoming #1 in Governing Education

 

To become the most competitive state in the nation in education.

How?

The State of Texas and Local School Districts go to work governing education to fulfill the lawful rights of students and taxpayers

Rights that include:

  • Providing all students the right conditions for — and meaningful experiences in — learning,
  • Causing no student to stumble and
  • Making effective use of, not wasting, time and money in fulfilling the rights of students.
  • Know what it costs to educate Texas students.
  • Not wasting time and money on programs that cause students to stumble.
  • Not wasting time and money on efforts that do not strive to fulfill the rights of students and taxpayers.
  • Students, parents, teachers and community involved in improvement planning

Rights Provided in Texas’ Education Code and School Districts’ Policy

The rights of Texas’ students and taxpayers have been provided for decades in Texas’ own Education Code (TEC) and Texas school districts’ own policies. Click HERE  to see the research on Texas governance of education, including the TEC and district policies.

Role of   SEE Government — Texas

Role: Provide Texans the opportunity to SEE

Requests are based upon the governance provisions in the Texas Education Code and in School District Policies.
