HB 52 (Opposed): Representative Simmons' bill would divert public tax dollars away from public schools and towards private school vouchers​. Texas’s five million public school students can’t afford any more funding cuts. Many of our schools suffer from overcrowded classrooms and can’t afford to provide students with the tools they need to succeed. We need to spend more of our money on public schools, not send it to private and religious institutions with little to no accountability.
