Breaking stuff isn't conservative.
State Representative Valorie Swanson recently introduced a bill to abolish
Education Department Harris County. Senator Paul Bettencourt is also expected
to file one.
What about saving money for school districts, giving kids a head start
in life, and educating a trained workforce other people don't like?
Isn't saving money conservative? Why are these two wanting to increase
Every school district in Harris County uses HCDE facilities, and most save
millions of dollars annually. School districts use our programs because
they know they get quality at the best price. Without HCDE, school districts
will pay more for these programs, resulting in school taxes rising to
cover the difference.
HCDE saves us money
Not only does HCDE save our schools money, but it also affects the lives
of men, women, and children in the Harris County area who often have no
other way to turn for support.
From our three and four-year-old Head Start students to our 70-year-old
GED Adult Education graduates, HCDE provides hope for a better future.
HCDE doesn't hand people out. HCDE helps people learn how to support
themselves and their friends. That's why HCDE is so critical, and
that's why we must defend HCDE from those who aim to abolish it.
Call, email, or write to your State Representative and let them know you
are against abolishing the Education Department of Harris County. Keep
reading about all HCDE's cheerful accomplishments. Share all the good
news at HCDE by sending this blog to your friends, relatives, contacts,
and everyone you know.
More info on HCDE
HCDE offers exceptional education, counseling programs, early education,
adult, and post-school programming. Services are funded by government
grants, taxes, and local property tax of about $9 per homeowner. For each
dollar raised in local property tax, HCDE provides $5 in benefits to the
25 Harris County school districts. We run four campuses for students with
deep special educational needs and adjudicate or recover youth who need
a low student-teacher ratio and a highly organized environment. One hundred
percent of HCDE campus students are at risk. We are governed by seven
trustees' elected board and have 1,076 employees and 33 facilities,
including 15 Head Start centers. Info at
Has Valoree Swanson Been Paid Off?
Money can significantly impact decision-making, and when donating to elections,
that's just what political action committees (PACs) intend. No different
is State Delegate Valoree Swanson (R-Spring). For three years, she earned
over $200,000 from political action committees and special interest groups.
Swanson raised thousands of dollars from real estate, financial services,
and corporate interests during her tenure as a campaigner. The Texas Ethics
Commission reveals that Swanson earned over $15,000 in her campaign financial
disclosures from PACs in 2018.
In hopes of Swanson voting in support of bills that would give them an
edge over the rest, organizations donating to her campaign help advance
her career. All offers come at a price, however. However, this one will
not harm anyone but the people in Swanson's district.
Swanson was purchased with donations that had already affected her voting
in her first term in office. From what we saw from Valoree Swanson in
the office, is she or her contributors for the Texans in District 150?
