Advocacy


Advocate. Empower. Engage.

Advocacy means speaking up, and TCEA is advocating for for students and educators alike. Whether at the Capitol, SBOE, or anywhere education laws and funding are decided, TCEA is working to focus energy and resources on supporting education. We share details and progress via @TCEAAdvocacy on Twitter, the TCEA Advocacy Blog , and scheduled Legislative Updates, which are free to TCEA members.


Hot topics of our Advocacy include:

Several webinars that detail the laws and rules that could impact education in Texas are scheduled throughout the year. These updates from the TCEA Director of Government Relations are offered throughout the year and are designed to keep you in the know about the issues and ideas that could impact our schools.

It’s Your Turn!

Ed Tech at the Texas State Capitol
Edtech enthusiasts will converge on the Texas State Capitol on February 7, 2017. This is a part of our annual convention. Prior to going to the Capitol, each participant will receive a briefing on the issues that pertain to educational technology, in addition to learning tips and tricks for effectively communicating with legislators and their staff members. TCEA will set up meetings with each participant’s senator’s and representative’s office and transportation will be provided to the Texas Capitol to meet with their legislators individually or in groups. Advance registration is required with a fee of $15 to cover transportation and lunch at the Capitol.
