Tarrant County had some of the strongest public education Champions and some of the most anti-public school legislators.

Tarrant County public school supporters can feel some pride about the scores earned by some delegates they sent to Austin this session, but they may have some serious concerns about others.

The most anti-public school representatives from Tarrant County were Republican State Reps. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) of House District 92 and State Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R-Arlington) of House District 94. Both earned a F this session, with the disastrous grades of zero (that’s right, zero) for Stickland and a 36 for Tinderholt. Both received a F in the 85th Session as well.

The biggest and most positive change in performance in Tarrant County is by freshman State Sen. Beverly Powell (D–Burleson), who earned a perfect 100 in 2019, a public school champion A. Powell defeated former State Sen. Konni Burton (R–Colleyville) in 2018, who was a F on the Scorecard, earning an abysmal 38 in 2017.

Unsurprising to many, Tarrant County had a number of public school champions earning a perfect score of 100, with State Reps. Chris Turner (D-Grand Prairie), Nicole Collier (D-Fort Worth), Charlie Geren (R-Fort Worth), Ramon Romero (D-Fort Worth), and State Sen. Beverly Powell making the grade.

Project Educo, and public schools all over the State, are ecstatic to see legislators stepping up. Let’s recognize State Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Keller) going from a 62 in 2017 up to an A score, a 92, in 2019. Supporting public education can’t just be one vote here and there. It has to be consistent, which is what the Project Educo scores represent: continual support for public ed in your votes, not just your words.
