White says goals include expanding pre-K programs

KILLEEN, TX White spoke to the group on Saturday.

The Houston Democrat said his goals include the expansion of pre-kindergarten programs and technical education at the high school level, moving away from standardized testing as a measure of competency and "creating a sense of emergency" when any student drops out of school.

The Killeen Daily Herald reported that Gary Bledsoe, Texas State NAACP president, praised White's leadership style as mayor of Houston.
