June 12, 2023 Texas Education 911 launched our “Champion-A-Child” program, asking for Texas Senators to request a Special Session focused on parent-identified problems and solutions in education, including a Parent Ombudsman for Education to provide badly-needed independent enforcement.

Why we launched our Champion-A-Child program: The 88th Legislative Session has come to a close. While some notably helpful education bills passed, other strong and courageous parent-friendly legislation did not advance this session, leaving Texas public school students vulnerable to serious harms, including repeated sexual, mental, and physical harm at school.
Families are desperate for help to protect their children. Parents and teachers who dare to stand up to protect children or who try to inspire positive change are crushed under the weight of taxpayer-funded lawyers and untouchable districts. Without effective enforcement the education code is only a suggestion, constantly ignored by school districts. Unfortunately, the laws passed this session addressed neither this issue nor many others, leaving parents with nowhere to turn.
On June 12, 2023, each Texas Senator, and the Lieutenant Governor, were hand delivered an opportunity to “Champion-A-Child” harmed by a Texas public school under current law. Each child's story is heartbreaking. For most Senators, the child harmed is from their own Senate District, or a neighboring district. Also, on June 12, 2023 Governor Abbott's office received a packet containing all 32 children's stories along with a plea for a Special Session focused on parent-identified problems and solutions in education, including a Parent Ombudsman for Education to provide badly-needed independent enforcement.
