Elevating Education

Providing Texas students with a quality education is vital to their future and to the future of our state. This legislative session, we reformed the school finance system to ensure that the next generation has the tools they need to succeed in the classroom, college, and a career. We have elevated the Texas education system by:

  • Investing more State funding and prioritizing spending in the classroom
  • Increasing teacher pay and establishing merit-based pay programs
  • Creating a funding structure based on student need, not zip code
  • Instituting new strategies to improve reading comprehension
  • Expanding access to full-day Pre-K for students in need
