Recently, Texas legislative sessions have been increasingly focused on education issues. As lawmakers debate bills that directly impact your profession and your benefits, it is more important than ever that you engage with your elected representatives on these issues.

Remember, you are the experts in the field of education. No one understands classroom challenges and opportunities better than you. Your unique and valuable insights can help ensure that policies are informed by the needs and aspirations of students and teachers and that they have a positive impact on public education.

So what resources do you have to educate yourself on these issues, and how can you provide your input to your elected officials and let them know how you feel?

In this episode of The ATPE Podcast, we ask ATPE Lobbyist Tricia Cave to explain the importance of educator voices in Texas education policy and how to engage with legislators.
