To Texas State Senator Dan Patrick, Vice Chair of the Texas Senate Education Committee, we, the undersigned employees of Spring Branch ISD, parents of Spring Branch ISD schoolchildren, and community supporters of our public schools, hereby petition and request that you vote “No” on any and all legislation, which will eliminate class-size limits for grades K-4. We urge you to support measures that will reduce class-size limits in all grades.

Compelling evidence demonstrates that reducing class size, particularly for younger children, has a positive effect on student achievement overall, and has a significant impact on the education of disadvantaged children. Small class size provides more teacher-student interaction, creates fewer discipline problems, and gives students the ability to be more successful. We urge you to take no action to water-down the current law, which places a cap of 22 students to one teacher in a K-4 classroom. We ask that you support our teachers, our public schools, and more importantly, the futures of our schoolchildren.


Spring Branch American Federation of Teachers (AFT). Spring Branch AFT is the largest education association in the the Spring Branch Independent School District.
