New Emphasis On Education

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is putting new emphasis on education in his campaign to replace Governor Rick Perry.  Education figures are expected to be a pivotal issue in the 2014 governor’s race.

Democratic challenger Wendy Davis has enjoyed support from teacher groups since staging a 2011 filibuster in the Texas Senate that temporarily blocked $5.4-billion in education cuts.

Abbot began a series of classroom roundtables on Monday starting near Dallas.  He plans to make several stops around the state while preparing to unveil his vision for Texas public schools.
