To keep Texas the best state in the nation, we can never forget why our state is so exceptional. Tan Parker’s legislation creating The 1836 Project brings about the formation of an advisory committee with the mission of promoting patriotic education and increasing awareness for this and future generations of the values that make Texas the most exceptional state in the nation. An educated and informed public is essential to the future of our state. With history being rewritten and culture being canceled, reprioritizing the teaching of history in Texas schools is critical. Our great state’s history is worth remembering, and together, we will keep our state’s rich history alive long into the future.
