“The time for school choice is now in the great state of Texas. Texas wants to see all of our children well-educated—and the best way to do it is by empowering parents to choose the best education option for their child.
We can have the best of both worlds by fully funding public education and school choice—and in the best of both worlds, mom and dad are in charge of their kids.
Our kids should have access to the number one education system in the United States, and we will do that by empowering parents and passing school choice this session.”
