TX Education Rally Draws Crowd of 3,500 at State Capitol

On Saturday afternoon, about 3,500 people (according to the Texas Tribune) from around the state marched up Congress Avenue for a rally in support of Texas’ children, its schools, its economy, and its future.

I was honored to welcome the crowd to the Capitol and to talk about what’s going on with Texas schools  and what we can do to make sure the state does better by them.

The video is above, but here is the gist of it: “When our kids make a mistake, we expect them to fix it. When our kids have an assignment to do, we don’t let them procrastinate. When our kids have a test, we expect them to show up and do well. It’s time to demand as much from this legislature as we demand from a child.”
