We've got boots on the ground at the Capitol.
As the Texas Legislature meets to decide the future of education in our great state, the ATPE Governmental Relations team is hard at work. Our lobbyists are constantly informing the debate with rational arguments and hard facts to help legislators make choices that can benefit our students, educators, schools and communities.Check out the latest advocacy news from our team of experts at the State Capitol and beyond.
Broader legal protection. Greater support.
You love your career in education. Make sure it’s protected against lawsuits and other employment-related issues and disputes. ATPE offers broader professional liability insurance coverage than any comparable organization—plus guaranteed employment rights defense insurance, win or lose. We provide true insurance coverage you can count on, along with robust resources to support your teaching and career growth.
Here for Texas. Here for you.
ATPE serves Texas public educators exclusively; we do not serve any outside interests. We advocate for your education priorities and the rights of your students at the Capitol. Everything we do is driven by members who are working educators just like you. And all of our resources are designed to meet the unique challenges you face at school.
Real value. Real impact.
ATPE delivers superior career protection for less than you’d pay for just one hour of an attorney’s time. There are no national dues, which means 100 percent of your money makes an impact right here in Texas, where you live and work. Each year, ATPE members review our dues, to ensure we’re delivering value at a cost working educators can afford. Members can even save more than $1,300 each year on goods and services through ATPE-exclusive discounts.
Working together. Winning for Texas schools.
ATPE members are committed to collaboration and inclusiveness. To realize exceptional public education across Texas, we must work with all stakeholders at all levels. As Texas’ largest organization for professional educators, ATPE is the only association that brings together teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals and education students. We advocate no political parties, and we focus solely on achieving solutions that serve the good of our public schools.
