Education Commissioner Williams speaks at charter schools conference about advocacy

Education Commissioner Michael Williams spoke at the Texas Charter Schools Association Conference this week. “Texas education commissioner urges charter schools to tout work to legislators”, Kelley Shannon, Dallas Morning News, December 4, 2012. Williams advised charter schools about the coming legislative session:

“This is dear to me, what you do, and we’ve got to do a good job with it,” Williams said during a question-and-answer session with participants at the Texas Charter Schools Association conference.

When state lawmakers convene in January, charter school officials should become “evangelists” for their educational work and strive to explain to legislators how they are serving children well, Williams said.

“They need to understand what you do,” he said. “Join together and tell your story.”
