Texans Deserve Great Schools calls for giving parents more high performing school options

This morning, I went to Austin to learn more about Texans Deserve Great Schools, an initiative to bring together lots of great ideas about education reform and put it all to work to make Texas schools better.

The part I am most excited about is the call to expand the high performing school options for Texas parents: remove the cap on the number of charter schools in Texas, provide facilities funding for charter schools, and promote enrollment across districts.
