Texas: Governor Abbott Touts Rural Support For Education Freedom In Amarillo

~ Governor Greg Abbott of Texas has expressed his support for education freedom and school choice among rural Texans at a Parent Empowerment Night held at San Jacinto Christian Academy in Amarillo. The event was attended by more than 450 parents, students, teachers, and parent empowerment advocates.

The Governor stated that no one knows better what is best for a child's success than their parents. He also said that Texans from the Rio Grande Valley to the Panhandle want to empower parents with the ability to choose the best education option for their child. He further added that protecting and expanding the fundamental right of parents as primary decision makers for their child is vital to the future of Texas.

At the event, Governor Abbott was joined by State Board of Education District 15 Member Aaron Kinsey, Texas Public Policy Foundation Campaign Director Mandy Drogin, San Jacinto Christian Academy Superintendent Roxanne Cheek, and other parent empowerment advocates. He pointed out that a majority of urban, suburban, and rural Texans are in favor of increasing a parent's right to make important decisions in their child's education and to have access to what is being taught.

The Governor discussed plans to expand school choice options through state-funded Education Savings Accounts to every Texas student and urged Texans to contact their local legislators to support parent empowerment and expanding education freedom in Texas. In his 2023 State of the State address last month, he had announced education freedom for all Texans as an emergency item for the 88th Legislative Session.
