Voter Survey Calls Education Top Priority

With the primaries at hand and another special session looming, the Lubbock Educators Association wants candidates to know one thing.

"Texas voters have overwhelmingly showed that education needs to be the state's top priority and investing more money on that rather than continuously trying to find a revenue neutral bill that puts no more money into public schools," said L.E.A. President, Clinton Gill.

Gill gave that statement Tuesday after releasing results of a bi-partisan poll. The poll surveyed more than 800 Texas voters. Each was asked to rank the state government's priorities and 47% placed public education above health care and cutting property taxes. The findings also show that's been the trend for the last three years.
