SUMMARY: Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is campaigning for school choice candidates and pushing for education savings accounts. Despite criticism from public school officials, Abbott is confident in passing school choice legislation. There are concerns about public school funding and whether it will be increased next year. Abbott’s opponents argue that public schools need more funding, while Abbott emphasizes teacher pay raises. The debate surrounding public education funding is contentious, with Abbott standing by his support for school choice. Overall, Abbott’s approval rating remains strong, with his focus on border security and property tax relief resonating with voters.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has made passing school choice legislation a top priority. The governor sat down with FOX 4’s Steven Dial to talk about where things stand after the primary election and says deals that were previously offered may now be off the table.
