A Common Theme - Education

Education common theme among inaugural addresses

AUSTIN (KXAN) – If you take a look back at the first inaugural address from each of Texas’ last eight governors, you’ll find a common theme among them: education.
In 1963, Governor John Connally’s inaugural address foretold the Texas we know today – economically competitive and rich in jobs. He also predicted the challenge in holding onto those points: investing in education.

 “The riches that are in Texas today are in large measure return on such an investment made in the youth of Texas by those men of vision long years ago. They wisely committed the resources of this state to the support of education of the first class in their time. We must renew that commitment and re-endow the future with greater investments today,” Gov. Connally explained.
