Our Kids Deserve Better Schools
posted by: TXGIR Staff
In Texas, we're trying hard to get education right. It's not easy in a state that's as big and as diverse as ours.
We recognize that kids deserve better schools, in Texas and in many other states. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to improving our education system, there are many good ideas and new concepts being tested across the Lone Star State.
Texas got a lot of things right. Some things, well, we're still trying. But anyone who knows a thing or two about Texas knows that we're never going to stop until we get education right.
Here are some links to several organizations that are working, each in their own ways, to better educate Texas school children. This list serves as a reference tool only, and does not constitute an endorsement for any agency by Texas Got It Right!
