Elizabeth Ames Jones on Education

 


Advocate of parental choice in education

As an advocate of parental choice in education, including charter schools and home schooling, I recognize the choice of parents in the education of their children. I believe that home schooling and charter schools are an integral components of that choice.

Simply put, education is one of the most important investments we can make in the future of Texas. Investing in Texas' universities will have an enormous impact on the Texas economy, quality of worker produced, and the job market the graduates are going into. Texas leaves $3.7 billion on the table annually in federal research dollars and venture capital because our existing Tier One institutions don't have the sufficient capacity. It is in Texas' best interests of have the very best universities for all of our children to attend.
