On My Birthday, I Continue to Fight for Texas Children and Families


Today on my birthday, I continue to fight for Texas students in releasing the below op-ed. Earlier this month, I joined with my colleagues, Rep. Gina Hinojosa and Representative Ana-Maria Ramos in writing this op-ed, asking Governor Greg Abbott to reconsider his decision to require STAAR tests during the 2020-2021 school year and to instead redirect those funds to make investments in educational opportunities for our students. We must ensure that no student is at risk of falling behind during this pandemic.
