Join us as we discuss the Texas Tribune article titled ‘Texas Republicans are trying to sell school choice measures, but rural conservatives aren’t buying’. We share our thoughts about the article and discuss the implications of what we’ve learned so far about the state of public education in Texas. We look at the surprising things we’ve learned and how this article is an excellent summary of the unlikely allies and unintended consequences of several initiatives passed by the Texas Legislature. We also discuss a recurring issue which is the need for transparency and honest information so everyone can make informed decisions.
