Public Education Committee

A strong public education system is vital to the long-term prosperity of our region and state. Improving student achievement starts with how our state finances public education. With $6.5 billion in new state funding in the public education formula funding system, the next step is to empower and improve students' outcomes in order for all students to graduate ready to attend college or enter the workforce. 

Although a significant undertaking which will require active engagement by the business community for years to come, Texans need a system that provides a quality education for all our children regardless of their zip code.

The Partnership's Priorities for the Public Education Committee

  • Supporting a well-funded, accountable and equitable public education system that serves all children and supports our talent pipeline

  • Advancing college or career-readiness through improvements to the K-12 public education system
