The COVID-19 Crunch

In our fifth episode of Intersect Ed, hosted by Raise Your Hand's Alejandro Izaguirre, we want to give you a landscape view of what school budgets look like for the upcoming school year and how the economic recession may impact school districts in the 2021 Texas Legislative session.

You will hear from Chief Financial Officers from school districts across the state, a facilities worker, a principal, and a bus driver on what it's like to run a public school during a global pandemic. Continued investment is one of the most important issues schools across Texas will face and one Raise Your Hand will champion during the upcoming session. This episode is the first in a new series laying out the biggest issues our schools will face in the coming year that Raise Your Hand Texas will champion during the 2021 Texas Legislative session.
