Senator Davis believes providing an excellent public education system is the state's most-important responsibility. While most lawmakers were mired in so-called "emergency" bills in 2011, Senator Davis made education funding her emergency. Education is the path to success for all Texas families, preparing our children for college, workforce training, and a competitive job market to support a strong Texas economy for generations. Senator Davis is committed to fighting for all schoolchildren, so that they will benefit from the opportunities that public education can provide. On behalf of thousands of parents, educators and business owners who contacted the Senate District 10 Office, Senator Davis took a stand against deep funding cuts forced by the powerful special interests and the failed legislative majority. She even filibustered a fiscal bill at the end of the regular 82nd Legislative Session that would cause harm to our public schools and hurt Texas' ability to keep and attract jobs.
