Second Reading Podcast: The GOP reboot of public education

In a new Second Reading Podcast, Jim Henson and Josh Blank look at results from a battery of public education questions in the latest University of Texas/Texas Politics Project Poll and discuss what they tell us about Republican-led efforts to shift the focus of the discussion of public education policy in Texas.

All of the graphics below, including additional graphics highlighting results among key subgroups can be found on the polling search page.
