Raise Your Hand Texas gets Hollywood heavyweight and business leader to speak up for school funding

Raise Your Hand Texas has enlisted some heavy hitters to advocate for public education funding in public service announcements that recently began airing on television.

Movie star and eighth-generation Texan Tommy Lee Jones says “Don’t bankrupt our future by cutting back on our kids” in the RYHT spot featuring him. Another commercial features Texans native Ed Whitacre, former chairman and CEO of General Motors and AT&T, who says: "Education isn't a cost, it's an investment."

Check out Tommy Lee’s commercial.
