Greg Abbott’s School Choice Plan: Big Opportunity for Texas


Texas Governor Greg Abbott is confident that he will be able to make good on his promise to bring school choice to the state’s families, following a runoff election that saw six out of eight House members who did not support school choice lose their seats. The Republican governor has been advocating for school choice in Texas for years and believes that the election results will allow him to finally achieve his goal.

The key to Abbott’s confidence is the fact that he now has the necessary votes in the Texas House to pass a school choice bill. With 15 incumbent Republicans who voted against school choice losing their races, Abbott claims that the Texas legislature now has the votes to pass school choice.

One of the proponents of school choice in Texas is Corey DeAngelis, a self-described “school choice evangelist” who has been advocating for school choice in states across the country. DeAngelis believes that the results of the runoff election are a clear victory for Texas families and predicts that school choice will finally become a reality in the state.

While Abbott has vowed to make school choice a priority in the upcoming legislative session, he still faces opposition from Democratic lawmakers and some rural Republicans who oppose the concept. The details of the school choice bill will need to be hammered out in the upcoming session, and there are still several hurdles that Abbott must overcome before he can deliver on his promise.

Despite these challenges, Abbott remains confident that school choice will become a reality in Texas in the near future. The success of school choice in other states, such as Florida and Arizona, could also serve as a beacon for other states and help to pave the way for its implementation in Texas.

Texas’s delay in implementing school choice has been puzzling, given the state’s strong conservative leanings. However, Abbott’s commitment to making school choice a reality in the state is a major victory for Texas families, and it could have far-reaching consequences for the state’s education system.
