  1. What is the relationship between education and our Texas government? Here is some background to read:

AND https://everytexan.org/2021/01/27/a-new-division-in-school-finance

2.Should parents have the right to vote on what their children learn in school? Let me explain, our government funds Texas charter schools 100%, but have no oversight on their curriculums. Property taxes fund 54.1% of Texas public schools and the government is telling educators, and essentially taxpayers, they cannot teach certain subjects or topics in Social Studies classes. Is this fair to Texas taxpayers?

NOTE: Charter schools are fully funded by the government, while public institutions must rely heavily on property taxes. Public schools gain funding from the government, but standardized test scores have determined the amount each district receives as of late*. No research states that charter school students perform better than public school students. However, charter schools are funded 100% by the government while disallowing the government to interfere in their lesson plans (Ravitch, 2014, pp. 156-179). HB 3937 limits academia taught in public schools funded by taxpayers.

3.Now the TX legislature has passed House Bill 3937. What is that? What do you think about it?  Why?  https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/87R/billtext/pdf/HB03979I.pdf

HB 3979 was created to replace and ban the teaching of the New York Times’ 1619 Project; does the 1619 Project have a place in Texas government and Texas education? Let me tell you about the 1619 project:

4.Many educators and education advocates opposed HB 3937, but should teachers and education leaders have autonomy over their lesson plans? An opinion: what are your thoughts?
