Texas Gov. Greg Abbott picks homeschooler to chair State Board of Education

A Texas watchdog group expressed concerned this week after Gov. Greg Abbott named a new chairperson to the State Board of Education who has never sent her own children to a public school.

Last week, Abbott announced that he was appointing Houston Republican Donna Bahorich, a former communications director for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, to chair the Board of Education.

According to Texas Public Radio, Bahorich homeschooled her own sons before sending them to a private high school.

The Texas Freedom Network, a watchdog group, warned that Bahorich would “put culture war agendas ahead of educating more than 5 million Texas kids.”

2. This is what Repugs do.

Put someone in charge of a Gov't agency/in a high position who has no respect for the basic goals and purpose of that institution and will undermine it from the inside. Provides absolute proof for their premise that Government doesn't work.
