So, there are several things that I just never got around to blogging about. I almost just want to skip over them since they happened so long ago, but I love using this blog as a documentation – so I’m just going to roll with it. You might see some flashback’s with some events that happened a while ago but I’d say they are still blog-worthy events! :)
This one was the Save Texas Schools Rally in Austin, Texas. Basically, Texas was cutting funding in education and therefore, many jobs would be lost and in my opinion, the quality of the education system would have suffered. So – in order to try to express ourselves, there was a rally in Austin to try to convince the funding not to be cut and for the Rainy Day Fund to be used for education. (Rainy Day Fund = The reason for the umbrellas… get it?!)
Jonny and I felt strongly about this issue and so we went! It was a blast and was really neat to come together with other educators and citizens who felt this issue needed to be addressed. Our friends Matt and Holly also went and so we met up with them and marched together!
In the end, some of the Rainy Day Fund was used. And specifically in Denton, the cuts weren’t nearly as bad as they could have been. Hey – maybe we had something to do with it! :)
