“It is very important to fund the future of Texas and our public schools are places working daily to build that future, one student at a time,” added Haterius. “We have many dedicated professionals who love teaching. We need to always make sure that we have the teachers our students need.”
MWISD will host a community luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., featuring Dr. Bonnie Lesley, an educator, and Linda Etheridge, former Waco mayor, discussing legislative issues facing public schools, including school funding.
