District to host screening of film about school funding

TTP

Waco ISD, in cooperation with Pastors for Texas Children and Texas Kids Can’t Wait, will host a free community screening of The Texas Promise on Tuesday, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the University High School Performing Arts Center located at 3201 S. New Road in Waco.

Oscar-winner Vanessa Roth’s The Texas Promise is a documentary about the high-stakes battle over funding for public education in Texas. Three years ago, when Texas cut $5.4 billion from public schools making Texas 49th in the country in per pupil spending, Texans protested and school districts sued the state and won. The Texas Promise is the gripping story about equity, politics, money, and children as Texas makes historic decisions about the future of public education.

"My hope is that educators, parents and students feel heard through this film and that the film reaches past the rhetoric around public education and into the day-to-day realities of what school means to those inside,” said Roth. “I hope the film fuels a deeper conversation about the impact that our investment – or lack of investment – in educating all kids in Texas, and across the country, has on each of us personally and as a society as a whole."
