The future workforce is being developed in classrooms across Texas right now. The technological and industrial advancements that will shape our economy require new skills and new ways of learning, and Texas schools have to lead the way. Texans know the value of a strong education. Senator Creighton co-authored legislation that provides Texas teachers meaningful raises and supported bills to reduce high stakes testing.  Creighton also believes in accountability, and that the state needs to ensure that no child is left behind. That is why he supports the A-F ratings so failing schools can be improved, and every young Texan gets the education they deserve.

    Should higher education in Texas be part of the plan to develop the workforce Texas needs for the future?

    Should Texas work with companies and corporations to identify the skills needed for success?
