Over the last two years, Texas education has been rocked by school closures and interrupted learning. As a result, 60% of kids are behind and almost none of them are catching up. Parents are frustrated by their lack of ability to control what’s happening to their children, and Katy parents know this feeling all too well. Katy schools have been caught up in the culture wars—and a bitter battle over what’s appropriate for school library shelves. They’ve also endured mask mandate disputes and are trying help their children to catch up after significant learning loss.

So, what is the Texas Public Policy Foundation doing to help?

We’re bringing you the Parent Empowerment Tour. Join the Texas Public Policy Foundation for a town hall conversation on these key questions: What are the unique challenges in Katy? How are families and visionary school leaders rising to meet these challenges? And what should the Texas Legislature do to improve access to great schools?

Complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
