Stacy Hock joins the Students Over Systems podcast to discuss the possibility and opportunity to expand education freedom in the Lone Star State this year. She explains the open enrollment, charter, and magnet school policies in Texas, and lays out her vision for creating K-12 education savings accounts for families. We address the need for Texas lawmakers to respect and recognize the voices of parents who are seeking expanded educational choices and flexibility.

Stacy Hock is a philanthropist and public policy advocate who serves on the boards of numerous organizations, including the Texas Public Policy Foundation and the University of Austin Board of Advisors.
