Education

“You can’t grow your economy if you don’t have an educated workforce.” – Those words from Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick could not be more true.

Teachers, administrators and students must be held accountable for competent performance. The system should be free from undue bias, which can distort students' perspectives on the world they must interact with to be competitive in a global market.
