Texas Teachers Ask Legislators to Keep Them in the Budget

Friday, the Association of Texas Professional Educators met in Lubbock to rally support from teachers. As the November elections approach the ATPE is trying to convince the candidates to protect education.

NewsChannel 11 spoke with State Representative Carl Isett Friday about the ATPE's statements. Isett says there are no plans to cut educational funding. He says the legislature will probably spend even more on education this year, than it did last year.
