Please see the following statement from Christy Rome, Executive Director of the Texas School Coalition, concerning federal education funding:
“We appreciate the decision of state leadership to release a portion of the education funding that the federal government approved to help Texas students. We are also grateful to the U.S. Congress and the President for making these dollars available to Texas students and, most of all, we appreciate the many Texas teachers, parents, business leaders and other community voices who have spoken out on behalf of supporting our students.
“The COVID-19 pandemic created unforeseen and unprecedented learning challenges for Texas students and teachers. The state’s decision to release some of the money available to Texas will help students begin to catch up and recover from this difficult year, and we look forward to hearing more about the state’s plans for the billions of other dollars that Congress has approved to help Texas students. This is a positive step forward for Texas students, but there is much work ahead as schools put these dollars — and the remaining dollars — to work in order to help more than 5 million students across the state.”
