AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that TEA Time, the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) official podcast, can now be downloaded on iTunes and other major podcast subscription services. The TEA Time podcast provides information on various TEA projects, initiatives, programs and specific public education issues.

Launched in August, the inaugural TEA Time episodes have featured discussions with Commissioner Morath and other guests about the launch of the A-F State Accountability Rating System, financial accountability ratings for districts and charters, and the Grow Your Own: Teachers grant program to strengthen the pipeline of new teachers in Texas.

TEA Time offers an easy way to hear about important efforts taking place in school districts across our state,” said Commissioner Morath. “With TEA Time now available on four major podcast platforms, parents and community members can listen at their convenience to learn how work in the classroom is leading to successful outcomes for all students.”
