Summary: HB 2824 would provide enacting legislation to implement the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium. The Consortium's purpose is to modify the public education system so that it functions on best practice measures and implements modern technological advancements. As described by the Texas Education Agency, "The Texas High Performance Schools Consortium is a group of up to 20 districts and open-enrollment charter schools charged with informing the governor, legislature, and commissioner of education concerning methods for transforming public schools through the development of innovative, next-generation learning standards, assessment, and accountability systems" (Texas Education Agency: Texas High Performance Schools Consortium).
Analysis: HB 2824 would make government more efficient by implementing efficiency measures that will reduce education costs. We support HB 2824.
