The Experience and Perspective to Fight for Public Education
Education expert Lois Parrott, Ph.D., is your Democratic nominee
for State Board of Education, District 12. Lois is a college professor
and a former Texas certified public school teacher. She advocated
for students, parents and teachers while serving on the Board of
Trustees for both Dallas County and the Dallas Independent School
District. Lois won six elections, serving for 13 years as an elected
public official, and also served as President of the Dallas Independent
School District Board of Trustees for two years.
Lois is running for this office because she believes that every
child deserves a quality education. Lois promotes public education
because she believes that education improves one’s quality of life.
Lois believes that strong schools produce stronger communities and
build a better economy.
Our public education must prepare students for the careers and
professions of the 21st century, as they compete in the global market.
Therefore, Lois insists that our legislators restore the $5.4 billion
in funding for our public schools. Lois will ensure that funds go to our
classrooms. She supports reducing unnecessary student testing so
teachers have more time to teach critical thinking skills.
Lois is an experienced educator. In 2013-2014, she was selected
as the “Teacher of the Year” Teaching Excellence Award winner for
Dallas County Community College District’s Richland College. Learn
