Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation applauds Texas Gov. Abbott’s support for empowering parents to make the best educational decisions for their children, along with pushing for curriculum transparency and high-quality education options for parents.

“Parents should have the necessary tools to ensure every child has access to a quality education that works best for their kids,” said Greg Sindelar, TPPF’s Chief Executive Officer. “Every parent should feel empowered to pursue the best education for their children.”

“We applaud Governor Abbott’s support for empowering parents with a strong voice in how their children receive an education,” said Mandy Drogin, campaign manager for TPPF’s Next Generation Texas initiative. “Students should not be stuck in government assigned schools that don’t meet their needs. The governor’s focus on transparency, high quality public and private schools, along with respect for parents and their wishes, will ensure Texas is the freest, most prosperous, and best educated state in the country.”
