Your advocacy efforts are making a difference! Here is the latest on HB130, from the Statesman:
A $300 million effort to move to full-day prekindergarten for eligible children has already won the support of more than half the Texas House of Representatives.
By Tuesday, 79 co-authors, both Republicans and Democrats, had signed on to House Bill 130, sponsored by Rep. Diane Patrick, R-Arlington.
So the political stars seem to be aligned for the bill, which sets standards for class sizes, curriculum and teacher qualifications as well as extending the school day.
