"Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go;
Keep her, for she is your life."
East Austin College Prep Academy -- Last Saturday, the Travis County Republican Party co-sponsored an event promoting educational choice and opportunity in East Austin. Hundreds of parents, the overwhelming majority of whom were Hispanic, learned about new options within the current system and during the current legislative session. Highlights can be seen below:
TCRP Chairman James Dickey:
- "No one cares more about your child's education than you."
- You have a lot of choices right now.
- eg. Charters vs. government schools.
- "As you make these choices, we here at the Travis County Republican Party ... will work to make sure you have even more choices."
- Too often we like to separate communities.
- The most important component of education is parents.
- It's the parents who really make the difference.
