I will ensure that we invest sufficiently into our Texas public education system to grant all the children in every community the same opportunity for high-quality education. I will work alongside our parents because they deserve the best public education our hard-earned Texas tax dollars can afford.
Public schools are the cornerstone of thriving communities and the hope for our future as Texans. I am committed to reforming our public school finance system to support all communities, including historically underserved schools and communities.
Texas schoolchildren must be prepared for success in college or career. To do so, we must focus on meaningful instruction, small class size and a well-trained workforce. Judging students, teachers, & communities by a child’s performance on STAAR shouldn’t be the strategy for improving public education. Instead, accountability systems should be used to help us know where to allocate our resources to serve Texas communities well.
