Clayton Williams and Ann Richards, speaking in two different areas of Texas, participated via satellite in a “mini” debate covering the topic of education. Both candidates were informed of the topics but not of the questions surrounding the debate. Although the candidates did not meet face to face, the televised program was the first debate between the candidates in the campaign. Mrs. Richards was asked the first and most major question regarding the ranking of Texas as 42nd in the state in terms of graduation rates. She responded to the question by stating her belief in mandating local control over education and involving the educators as opposed to the administrators. Mr. Williams concluded by stating his concern more for the parents and the students, and the need to empower the parents to play a more active role. close
