Friday on The Chad Hasty Show Texas District 11 Representative Travis Clardy joined Chad to talk about the 85 legislative session for Texas which will convene in 2017.

In Clardy's view, education will be on the front burner for Texas, with many education topics coming to the forefront. Clardy believes that, rather than the federal government, Texas should be making it's own decisions about both primary and secondary education. Clardy said,

In my perfect world Chad, I'd wave the magic wand and get the federal government out of our lives in any number of areas, but particularly with education. I think that Texas is more than able to sail this ship on our own without any guidance from Washington D.C.
