Why doesn't Texas have an educational choice program?
Several pieces of private school choice legislation were introduced in 2013. Even though Republican lawmakers adopted school choice as part of their platform, the Republican-dominated legislature failed to send any of those bills to the governor’s desk. Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has made mixed statements on private school choice, and it is not known if he will promote the creation of a private school choice program while in office.
