Is Sid *Sonogram* Miller in Trouble vs Jd Sheffield?

27 July 2012 at 6:07:52 PM

Great article from the Texas Observer

At a debate in Glen Rose earlier this month, Sheffield said he’d been invited to meet a bunch of school superintendents from District 59, who told him they weren’t even interested in talking to Miller anymore.

“This consortium of superintendents,” Miller explained to the crowd, “well, that's a union, that's a teacher's union that put that meeting together. It's a superintendent's union.”

Sheffield leaned against his podium and sounded exhausted, dropping his voice as if the point was just too obvious. “There’s no unions in Texas,” he explained, “no superintendent unions, no teacher unions.”

Whatever you want to call them, they’re all on Sheffield’s side. In the last few weeks, Sheffield has received $10,000 from Texas Parent PAC, more than any other House candidate, thanks to a flood of new money from HEB grocery store CEO Charles Butt. The Association of Texas Professional Educators, Texas State Teachers Association and the Texas Classroom Teachers Association combined to chip in another $15,000 in the last month.

The biggest education money Miller has seen, meanwhile, came on primary day, when school voucher advocate James Leininger sent him $25,000.

“Nothing separates us more than our positions on education. I am pro-public education and he is for the privatization of education,” Sheffield says. “For people not directly involved in education, they don't understand a voucher system at all, and how it can be harmful for these small towns and rural schools.”
