As COVID-19 forced children into remote learning, many parents were able to witness firsthand the education students received in the state of Texas. Some were shocked, concerned, and left with persistent questions about what schools are teaching their children. To help facilitate this discussion before the 2023 Legislative Session, the Texas Public Policy Foundation has announced its Parent Empowerment Tour, a series of events designed to bring together stakeholders in the discussion over education reform and offer Texans a chance to have their voices heard.
Featuring experts, political candidates, policymakers, and a range of concerned Texans at stops across the state, the Parent Empowerment Tour will provide information about top issues such as Critical Race Theory, the proposed Parents Bill of Rights, and what lawmakers can do to improve education in the state of Texas. With education quickly becoming one of the hottest issues in the country, these events will serve as an inside look into what Texans want from their government in 2023.
“Every child should have access to a quality education and parents should have the tools they need to act in the best interest of their children,” said Greg Sindelar, TPPF’s Chief Executive Officer. “The response to COVID-19 shined a light on our children’s education like never before, producing more questions and concerns than answers. This tour will provide the answers parents are looking for and set forth a clear path in the 88th Legislature for how we can deliver the changes families are demanding.”
