Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation praises Speaker Dade Phelan for his committee assignments and welcomes the selection of Representative Brad Buckley (R-Killeen) as the new House Public Education Chair, as well as the additional committee members.

As Texas enters potentially a historic moment for the educational future of its students, this committee will be a leader in ensuring Texans everywhere have access to the best educational opportunities available.

“Representative Buckley will be an excellent chair for the House Public Education Committee, and we look forward to working with them this legislative session,” said Mandy Drogin, campaign director for TPPF’s Next Generation Texas initiative. “This is an important first step in ensuring that Texans have a system that respects the parent and ensures transparency and a high-quality education on school campuses.”
