His plan includes a state takeover of Texas' 15 lowest-performing elementary schools
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; education again took center stage in the Texas governor's race Wednesday as Republican candidate Greg Abbott unveiled a second round of proposals to reform the state's system.
His plan include a state takeover of Texas' 15 lowest-performing elementary schools, to be run as an "achievement school district" similar to charter-school-heavy reform efforts in Tennessee and New Orleans.
