ATPE brings hundreds of educators to State Capitol
AUSTIN, Texas — Several Humble ISD teachers joined more than 400 educators with the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE) at the Capitol, Monday, March 6. They discussed with lawmakers important education issues, such as opposing school vouchers, funding an equitable solution to fully funding public education, and providing affordable healthcare options for public school employees.
“It’s an honor to represent Humble educators at the State Capitol today,” Tesslyn Mustain, Humble ATPE Secretary, said. “As educators, we feel it’s our responsibility to learn about public education policy and voice our concerns. We want our legislators to know that educating our youth should be a priority and we will not stand for any legislation seeking to rob Texas kids of a quality education.”
ATPE at the Capitol is a two-day event where educators learn about education policy and connect with their elected legislators. With more than 100,000 members, ATPE is the state’s largest educator group and the voice of public education.
