Texas Education

Blog on Texas Education

About

I’ve lived in Texas for almost 10 years. Both of my children have attended Texas schools for that time. I have become involved in campaigns to help get Texas to fund their schools appropriately. We are in crisis mode, our schools are coming near to closing or are closing, we are expanding at an astronomical rate, and the people we have “elected” are thumbing their noses at everyone involved in public education. We must work together, educate ourselves and elect those who will get the necessary funds to give our Texas children the public education that is in our constitution, but more so, the education they deserve.

    Also, consider Save Texas Schools. Google their site and support their cause for public schools.

    Hello,
    I came across your blog and it’s great how your children motivated you to be involved and provide such useful information for anyone interested in the education of their children or the children in their community. We are also in Texas, and I thought you might find one of our resources helpful for children in schools who may be dealing with difficult circumstances http://www.thethreadalliance.org/kids-and-teens/
    It’s wonderful to find people like yourself who care so much for the children in our community and all over.

  3. Are you the Patty Pinkley who posted that wonderful suggestion, that young men wait 48 hours to buy a gun, etc., instead of women waiting for abortion? It’s hilarious, but absolutely on the mark, too. If you are the one, I’d like your permission to send it to senators and congresspeople. (I changed a few words here and there, but left the essence exactly as is.) I think if we blanket congress, social media, campaigns against guns like the Brady campaign, Huffington Post, etc., at least it will get widespread publicity and might even shift the conversation. We can go from reacting to every Repugnican attack, to taking the offense for once. I know you meant it slightly tongue in cheek, but that’s what makes it such a good vehicle for a real campaign, in my opinion.

    I really take my hat off to you for that post. BTW, I’m not on FB. My spouse from Israel sent it to me; someone sent it to her. So it’s getting at least some international attention. 😉

    Thank you for this.
