While education reform is seemingly a constant agenda item for the Texas Legislature, during this session it has taken on a new shape as School Choice. Republicans, led by Texas Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick, are taking on the challenge of expanding school choice to all. Two people working on the front lines to help implement school choice for Texas – Peggy Venable – the Senior Visiting Fellow at the Center for Education Freedom at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, and Aaron Smith – an Education Policy Analyst with the Reason Foundation – joined the show to discuss the reasoning behind school choice, the potential impact, and the path forward for Texas schools.
