Amid push for educators to vote, Empower Texans looks for whistle blowers at ISDs
Education advocates like Texas Pastors for Children fire back: “It won't work. Teachers and community leaders are now awake to the attack on their community and neighborhood schools."
a move that advocates for public education are calling a “ridiculous” attempt
at “fear and intimidation,” Empower Texans is reportedly asking employees
at school districts around the state to snitch on each other if school district
resources are used to encourage voting in the March primaries.
image of a letter written by Empower Texans general counsel Tony McDonald to ISD employees was circulated
online this week. Some ISD employees have reported receiving the letter and it
is our understanding at Quorum Report that several superintendents
have seen the letter in their districts.
