Rocio is the product of Plano public schools. The quality education she received in the district allowed her to earn scholarships to Baylor University and Notre Dame Law School. She understands how important strong public schools are for young people striving to achieve. Rocio supports fully funding public education, including having the state pay a fair share so that tax-paying homeowners are not overwhelmed with the financial burden. Rocio does see public education as an investment in our young people and our workforce, rather than an expense. North Texas has to compete in a global economy. Rocio will fight to make sure our children have access to quality education and gain the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful. She is also supportive of community colleges, continuing education for adults and skills training.
