Project Ēdūcō Scorecard: Collin County

By June 13, 2019 Uncategorized

Results of the 2019 Project Educo Scorecards show Texas lawmakers representing Collin County performed somewhat worse than their peers, in what most public education activists have deemed an encouraging legislative session.

The entirely Republican delegation earned scores that were below the average of their colleagues—Senate Republicans’ average rating was 38 percent (that’s an F), while House Republicans earned an average 75 percent—but the grades were higher than what Collin County voters have come to expect based on lawmakers’ records in previous sessions.

The Project Educo Scorecard is a tool for Texans to measure legislators’ commitment to public schools, using key votes on public education bills and amendments throughout the session, not just one or two votes the legislator chooses to talk about to claim they support public ed.

Here’s how Collin County lawmakers performed:
