Texas State Representative Dwayne Bohac

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As a lifelong resident of House District 138, born and raised in Northwest Houston, improving our local quality of life has always been my top priority. That’s why I have fought for lower taxes and job creation, worked to improve local flood control efforts, cracked down on nuisance apartments, helped pass stronger border security measures, and worked with parents, teachers and local school board members to improve education.

With your support, I will continue to work hard and deliver results for our local community. Please take a minute to explore my website and don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need assistance.

Patrick: School Choice A Top Priority in 2017

Rep. Dwayne Bohac, a Houston Republican who attended the Thursday panel, said he thinks the House would’ve passed the Senate’s tax credit scholarship bill “overwhelmingly” last year — if it had made it to the floor for a vote. Instead, it died in the House Ways and Means Committee.

He emphasized that the concept was “not a voucher” and said it would have disproportionally helped poor and minority students.

School Choice: A Civil Rights Issue

School choice is the civil rights issue of our day, especially in Texas.  A family's access to a high quality education should be a basic civil right.  For me, this is about economic justice — helping the working poor and giving education consumers real choices.  Education is, indeed, the great equalizer.  In the marketplace, the customer is always right.  The education marketplace should be no different.
