As you know, legislative advocacy is a critical role all educators must play. Passive, sheep-like behavior as educators and teachers does NOT serve those we strive to educate, and apathy, ignorance hurt our society as a whole. If we do not show up to advocate on behalf our children, our work, our values and beliefs as educators, then others with radical agendas will destroy them. Since those radical agendas usually have big money behind them, rather than our children’s best interests, I encourage you, if you are able, to attend this event at TCEA.

Panel Topic: How Technology Can Assist with the Implementation of HB 5

TCEA would like to invite you to a special advocacy event at the TCEA 2014 Convention & Exhibition on Tuesday, February 4th, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM in room 18D at the Austin Convention Center.

Join a panel of policy makers and elected officials as they discuss the challenges of the implementation of HB 5 and how technology can be used to ensure that all students in Texas can take advantage of all the opportunities provided in the bill. Come and listen to their insight and voice your concerns and share your ideas.

The following will be on the panel:
  • Representative Jimmie Don Aycock, Texas House of Representatives
  • Representative Marsha Farney, Texas House of Representatives
  • Representative Ken King, Texas House of Representatives
  • Ms. Mitzi Neely, Assistant Superintendent of C&I from White Oak ISD

I regret that my attendance at a special function on this night will keep me from attending, though. 😦

Still, Stuart Burt and Sandy “EdTechSandyK” Kendell will be sharing their notes and audio from the session. Be sure to visit them after the session and share your remarks.
