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 North Texas parents know this feeling all too well. As in other area schools, campuses in the Northwest Independent School District have been caught up in the culture wars, rather than keeping their focus on preparing kids for lifelong success.

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, Convention of States, and Heritage Action in Trophy Club for a town hall conversation on these key questions: What are the unique challenges in North Texas? 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?

A complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
