“We are honored to have three taxpayer heroes attend the TPPF conference in January to talk about educational choice,” said Kent Grusendorf, senior fellow and director of the Center for Education Freedom at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and former U.S. Senator Phil Gramm will share the keynote panel with Nevada’s Lt. Gov. Mark Hutchison to discuss educational choice. Half the states have some form of private school choice program in place. Unfortunately, Texas has none. This panel will focus on the exemplary program passed by Nevada this year and look ahead to what Texas should do regarding educational choice.”
For over thirteen years, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation has been one of the nation’s top policy conferences, selling out each year while bringing together lawmakers, policy experts, and engaged citizens from across the political spectrum to discuss critical issues facing the Lone Star State and America. This year’s program includes more than 35 panel discussions and debates on the major issues affecting Texas’ future.
