Although it has seen its share of changes throughout the years, a free, public education has long been the heart of Texas. In fact, the Texas Declaration of Independence in 1836 listed the failure of the Mexican Government "to establish any public system of education, although possessed of almost boundless resources" among reasons for severing political ties with Mexico.

Lubbock ISD and other districts around the state participated in Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week by sharing photos and stories on social media with the hashtag #PowerOfPublic.
