I’m fighting for a Texas with the wellbeing of every student and teacher at the forefront.
Through relying on high stakes testing, local property taxpayers, overstretching resources, and deteriorating infrastructure, too many Texas children are left out of reaching their full potential through education.
We need to reduce inequality within our education system by implementing Pre-K For All, focusing on early childhood literacy, increasing resources for Special Education, improving mental health support, and breaking the school to prison pipeline.
Our biggest success in 2019 was passing a transformational public education bill (House Bill 3). H.B. 3 includes $11.6 billion more for public education, entailing:
- Teacher raises
- Focus on K-3 reading
- Special education funding
- All day Pre-K
- Property tax buy downs
Let’s keep pushing for more wins like this.
