The Texas Legislature began the October special session with work on “school choice” legislation, a top priority for Gov. Greg Abbott. Can lawmakers reach a compromise on vouchers, education funding, teacher pay and more? Join us for a conversation on the potential outcomes of the special session and how legislation could change things for students, parents, teachers and schools across the state.

Norma V. Cantú, professor of education and professor of law joins fellow panelists Corey A. DeAngelis, senior fellow at the American Federation for Children and John Emerich, superintendent of Crockett Independent School District for a conversation moderated by Becky Fogel, education reporter at KUT Radio in Austin.
