Rick Perry’s Education Background

Rick Perry Headshot with American FlagRick Perry has been the Governor of Texas since George W. Bush resigned in 2000 to become the president of the USA. Perry has been re-elected to the position three times since then, making him the longest-running current U.S. governor. He is currently a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. EDUinReview will now take a look at his education background.

Perry was born on March 4, 1950, in Paint Creek, Texas. His parents are Amelia and Joseph Perry. Perry first heard his calling to become involved in politics when he was 11-years old and his father took him to the funeral of U.S. Representative Sam Rayburn. As a youth, Perry was involved in the Boy Scouts of America and became an Eagle Scout. He graduated from Paint Creek High School in 1968, and then moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M University. He graduated with a 2.5 GPA and a bachelor’s degree in animal science in 1972.

Presidential Candidates’ Stances on Evolution and Intelligent Design

It’s a sticky subject for many people in the world: was the Earth and the animals on it created by a higher power or is evolution really behind it all?

Rick Perry has said on several occasions that he thinks that evolution is just “a theory that’s out there” with “some gaps.” Recently, he even told a child in New Hampshire this belief. This makes me think that Perry would make a move to change the curriculum in schools concerning this controversial issue.
