Texas school leaders rally to "Make Education a Priority"

State Capitol - Austin, Texas

Hundreds of school leaders gathered at the Capitol today to deliver a message to lawmakers to Make Education a Priority when crafting the state’s budget.

Roughly 1,000 school district administrators and school board trustees came to Austin today for a free Legislative Conference put on by the Texas Association of Administrators and the Texas Association of School Boards.

After the conference, school district leaders headed for the Capitol to meet with their lawmakers. At 2 p.m., many of them rallied on the south steps of the Capitol, standing unified in their message with red placards, fans and a banner, all reading: "Make Education a Priority."
