Matthew Lucci Teacher and College Professor

Fight for Education

My mom was a preschool teacher before homeschooling my six siblings and I. She ignited a passion for education in my heart that led me through college, and eventually, to become a professor of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Texas system, teaching fundamental courses for the brightest minds in rural Texas. 

From my time volunteering in public elementary schools, I understand how tough it is for teachers to provide a quality education with limited resources. The system isn't working for everyone, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Rather than the government telling us how to educate our kids, parents and teachers are the best people to make decisions about how our kids should be educated.

We need to refocus the Department of Education to meet the needs of our community. Revising Title I funding for special needs kids is a critical step in ensuring that all students have access to the resources they need to succeed. By focusing on individualized education plans, vocational training, and other resources that can help special needs students succeed, we can provide a more inclusive and supportive learning environment for all students.

We should work with our best colleges and universities to offer fully online dual-credit programs for students to earn their associate's degree in high school, so that they can get ahead and save thousands on a college degree, no matter where they live. This would also make it easier to get certifications in software development, and access high-paying jobs immediately after high school. 


If you have an idea for improving education in America, I want to hear what you have to say. Send me a message to make sure that your voice is heard.


It's time for a Representative who will finally fight for us.
