Letters of Support for HCA
During June 2022 hearings, the Texas State Board of Education made a last minute change to the schedule that resulted in many of our families being unable to share their stories and testimonies. These families took time off from work, traveled to Austin, and spent the day with us in support of school choice and classical education. They deserve to have their voices and stories shared.
Their stories are important, their words are impactful, and their time is invaluable. We thank them for their support then and now as we forge forward to provide a new option for education to families in northwest Houston. Keep reading below for their stories.
