This is an excerpt
from the article Martha Wright sent to Texas ISD.com. It explains the beginnings of our group. A recent email
asking us if we were a legitimate web site prompted NTTLB to explain our genesis.
No Texas Teacher Left Behind is a grassroots, non-partisan organization created when a small group of teachers from
School in Liberty City met with a former trustee of
the Teacher Retirement System to discuss concerns about salaries, health care benefits, and retirement issues. The trustee,
Frank ‘Bo’ Camp, shared his knowledge of past events that affected teachers and reminded teachers of current issues
in the 79th legislative session. From this initial meeting, NTTLB was born. Martha Wright, a teacher at Sabine ISD and Jan
Doerr (retired teacher), joined hands with Bo and his wife Carmen, a teacher for Longview ISD, to create a web site, purchase
ribbons, cards, pins, and banners, write letters to newspapers, and host meetings with area teachers. Their primary focus
was to spread the word that an organization existed to unite all employees of public schools to become an effective voting
bloc in the next state election. We have spread this message across Texas.
