The education of our children is key to the success of our State. Quality education should not be the exception but the rule in Texas. Our teachers and our parents share the same passion, the welfare and success of our children, working together, they know what is required and needed by the children of Texas. A bureaucrat, corporation or non-elected official does not know better than our teachers and parents. I support more teaching to learn than teaching to the test. Our teachers must have a fair market value wage and a sound retirement; they serve with purpose. State funds must be allocated with more emphasis on the course and subject than administration and special projects. I support Governor Abbott’s 60/30 TX plan, which envisions that by 2030, at least 60% of Texans aged 25-34 will have a postsecondary credential or degree.

I do support a voucher program, as a parent should have a choice where their child goes to school.
