Texas must focus on improving student outcomes by:

  1. Allowing public school teachers to be paid according to merit
  2. Allowing parents to send their child to a school of their choice, regardless of where they live, using state tax dollars that have been allocated to pay for their child’s education
  3. Making sure education dollars flow into the classroom rather than the bureaucracy like superintendent salaries and benefits
  4. Increasing educational options because schools respond to competition by improving the curriculum, introducing new and popular programs, and incentivizing high- performing teachers
