Priorities for Texas public education established at Superintendents’ Legislative Summit
Huckabee is committed to advocating for public education with the Texas legislature. The 87th Legislative Session will be like none other. It will require school district leaders, community members and public school supporters to engage in the process to achieve the best outcome for education. Huckabee has successfully lobbied on behalf of Texas public schools for many years and will continue to do so with the help of our friends at HillCo Partners.
In October, nearly 50 superintendents from across Texas met during our Legislative Summit at the Hammerlun Center in Georgetown, Texas to prioritize educational issues for special focus during the upcoming session. After hearing from Rep. Dan Huberty, Sen. Beverly Powell and Buddy Jones of HillCo and after two rounds of voting, several key priorities rose to the top.
- Strengthen Local Control and Flexibility
- Support Texas School Pandemic Relief and Recovery Needs
- Improve Charter School Transparency and Efficiency
- Restore School District Authority of Election Order Content
