View descriptionShare

When the 88th Texas Legislature convened in January, Gov. Greg Abbott (R) listed school choice as one of his top priorities. But with the session set to conclude at the end of May, it's unclear if the Texas House will deliver.

This week, Baylee Friday talks to Mandy Drogin of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative think tank, state Rep. James Talarico (D-Round Rock), and Texas Monthly senior editor Forrest Wilder, who has written extensively about the intersection of public schools and politics, about why school choice is a priority, how it would impact public schools, and who it would benefit.
