THSC and the Texas homeschool community realized unprecedented success during the 85th Texas Legislature. In total, THSC and the THSC Watchmen successfully passed nine CPS reforms.
- THSC took a stand for innocent Texas families like the Tutts who have suffered injustices in court battles with CPS.
- THSC made significant progress on parental rights reforms through the Family Unity Act.
- THSC pushed the Tebow Bill further than ever before in the legislative process.
All of this was made possible by the homeschool community participating, supporting the THSC team with financial contributions, and taking action when calls to the legislature were needed.
Below is a detailed report on progress for Texas families this legislative session. Thank you for standing with us in Keeping Texas Families Free.
CPS Reforms Passed by the 85th Texas Legislature
Well before Governor Abbott made CPS reform an emergency item in Austin, the THSC team analyzed and drafted CPS reform legislation aimed to provide relief for Texas families suffering through injustices.
Throughout its history, THSC has fought CPS overreach on behalf of its members. This included battling on behalf of the Tutt Family for three years in the Texas court system.
The Tutt case was sparked by the illegal removal of their seven children, who were placed into foster care. THSC took action, bringing the Tutt case before the legislature to collaborate with attorneys, judges, legislators and activists from across the state. The result was overwhelming.
By the grace and blessing of God, nearly every CPS reform that we filed this session was passed. Because of the protections passed into law this session, no Texas family will ever have to suffer as the Tutts did.
