Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Sets Goal to Make Texas #1 in Education - Exclusive Video Interview
When our leaders set lofty goals it creates a pathway to achievement. Over fifty-two years ago, President Kennedy set a goal for our nation of sending a man to the moon and returning him home safely by the end of that decade.
