ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY: WORK SUPPORTS/CHILD CARE
Many Texans are poor, not because they don't work, but because their work pays too little to raise a family out of poverty.

The most important thing the state can do to enhance economic opportunity is to invest in public educationâ€”from early childhood education all the way through higher education.
