Texoma Speaks Out At Save Texas Schools Rally

The final numbers are in for the Save Texas Schools Rally Held Saturday in Austin at the state capital.
Well over 12,000 educators marched to let lawmakers know they want something done, other than massive cuts to public education.
Save Texas Schools Is the "grass-roots coalition" that organized the rally. The group wants the Texas Legislature to use the $9.3 billion in the Rainy Day Fund and use it to help rescue schools.
They also want the paperwork signed for federal aid for teachers, and school funding laws to be fair.
One Texoma Superintendent was at that rally and is speaking out.
Perrin-Whitt CISD Superintendent John Kuhn said,"Public school teachers, you are the saviors of this society. You are the first responders standing in this rubble while they sit in their offices and scribble judgmentally on their clipboards. You are heroes and what you do isn't worth the $27 billion; it's priceless."
