TCTA's lobby team has earned a reputation for being a strong voice for teachers, thanks in part to our unmatched record of success.
During session, our lobbyists carefully monitor and testify on legislation that could affect TCTA members and provide up-to-the-minute reports on legislative action. We post our Updates from the Capitol online and compile and email them weekly via the TCTA eUpdate.
TCTA members who receive eUpdate also receive Action Alerts when needed during legislative sessions to notify them of votes and other matters requiring immediate attention.
TCTA created TexasTeachersVote.org to help Texas educators prepare for the polls. The site is updated when campaign season for the next legislative election cycle is underway.
TCTA is committed to keeping our members up to date on what’s happening at the local and national levels in education policy and governmental affairs through our award-winning publications (including The Classroom Teacher magazine and the annual Survival Guide), frequently-updated website, emailed newsletter, and social media.
