We hope people will join us Saturday to hear the latest on key education reform bills critical to Texas students, parents and taxpayers. Decisions made in the next weeks will impact the future of our state for years to come.”
The forum will also provide information on CSCOPE, the curriculum management system currently in use by more than 850 Texas school districts.
