Like you, Angie cares deeply about our children's education. She is a proud parent of a Richardson ISD graduate and as State Representative, works hard to ensure our children are equipped with the skills necessary to excel.
In the Texas House, Angie restored $1.5 billion in school funding that was lost during the recession. She worked hard to pass legislation to reduce high-stakes tests and to create Texas' high-quality pre-kindergarten program, which gives our highest-need children a solid start down a path of success. Angie has repeatedly voted to support retired teachers by strengthening the Texas teachers’ retirement fund and continually working to make healthcare more affordable for our retired teachers.
Angie is working hard to address adequately funding public education. In the 2017 legislative session, Angie supported a school finance measure that would have increased the state’s share of the cost of education and eased the pressure on property taxes. While this bill did not have enough support to pass in the Senate and did not become law, it provided a great starting point for us to continue working toward improving public education while alleviating the burden that funding public education places on our property taxes.
Education needs to be our State's priority. We must focus on hiring and rewarding the best teachers and empowering parents and schools with more local control and fewer state mandates. Angie formed an Education Roundtable with classroom teachers, parents and business executives to discuss solutions.
