Report: Education Most Important Issue to Texans

Back to Real Estate News

A recent survey released by the nonprofit leadership organization Texas Lyceum revealed that 75% of Texas residents believe that education is the top issue facing the nation today. Stephenville home owners can certainly attest to the accuracy of the survey’s results, since the Stephenville Independent School District is one of the main selling points to individuals interested in purchasing Stephenville real estate. The Stephenville ISD has been continually ranked in the top percentile of districts nationwide, and is committed to raising its standards of academic excellence.

The survey also revealed that most Texas residents are willing to pay additional taxes for improvement to local public schools, and funding also could be used to implement additional after-school programs or community events. In Stephenville, the school district plays an important role in the community by acting as a meeting place for organizations, and hosting numerous family-oriented activities throughout the year.

North Texas is also home to numerous highly-ranked higher learning institutions, including the University of Texas, Texas A&M University, and Texas Tech University. Tarleton University in Stephenville also tops the list of colleges and universities in North
Texas that help strengthen the community.
