A few introductions are probably in order. My husband Scott and I (Leslie) founded Friends of Texas Public Schools in 2004 because we were sick and tired of false and misleading news reports about our Texas schools. As someone who is proud to be a product of Texas public schools, proud to be a second generation Texas public school teacher and the proud parent of 3 Texas public school children...I was sick and tired of being PICKED ON! The truth is that our public schools are achieving more today than ever before and it's high time that those of us who witness the great things happening in our schools stand up and SAY something!
This blog is where we hope to do just that. So, buckle up and stay tuned!
