First Day of School

It's hard to believe the summer is already over and our kids are back to school. I was lucky to be able to drive my three wonderful daughters to their first day of classes this week.

Back in March, the House passed H.R. 5, the Parents Bill of Rights, which I was proud to co-sponsor. The Parents Bill of Rights enshrines five basic rights that every parent will have when their kids are in school:

1. Right to know what’s being taught in schools and to see reading material

2. Right to be heard

3. Right to see the school budget and spending

4. Right to protect their child’s privacy

5. Right to be updated on any violent activity at school

All school districts should readily adopt these ideals and restore the importance of parents and families in education. 

Good luck to all of our Texas-11 students, families, and educators! We are wishing you a safe and fantastic school year filled with growth, discovery, and achievement.
