The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

The following statement was issued today by the National Coalition for Public School Options in response to the Texas 353rd Civil District Court ruling regarding litigation challenging the Texas Education Agency’s decision to prohibit families from re-enrolling in a full-time virtual public school:

We are incredibly disappointed in today’s ruling. When the legislature passed its virtual school bill in 2021, we firmly believe they did so with the intent to empower families to choose the best educational option for their child’s needs. The families said under oath that the school their child was blocked from re-enrolling was the best educational option for their child’s needs.

Education reform advocates should be troubled in particular by two of the state’s argument against parent choice:

1. Money following the child doesn’t matter for school choice. The state explicitly argued that the lack of ADA funding for these students did not equate to the same thing as blocking enrollment.

2. Being held in a school that their parent doesn’t believe fits their educational needs is not damaging to a student. In fact, the state referred to the parents’ educational concerns as “complaints”.

The Texas Legislature, policymakers and education reform community must take note of both the outcome of this case and the arguments advanced against empowering parents with options. Any school choice policies advanced next session must be more direct and explicit, ensuring parents are empowered to choose the educational option best for their child.
