FISD Staff, Parents and Community,
On March 25th, a “Save Texas Public Schools Rally” was held in Austin. Many who attended commented the Mineral Wells Superintendent John Kunz gave an amazing speech in support of public schools and the critical role that it plays in our ability to survive as a state. He eloquently articulated what many advocates of public education believe. I was inspired by his words and thought you might be too.
The 85th legislature is currently in session. I encourage you to contact your legislators to share your beliefs about public school and the possible use state funds to pay for or support a school voucher, education savings account or tax credit scholarship program or a similar program through which a child may use state money for nonpublic education. In Wilson County your legislators are: Senator Judith Zaffirini firstname.lastname@example.org and Representative John Kuempel John.Kuempel@house.state.tx.us .
