Texas House Legislators Stick Up for Public Schools - June 25 2017

Already saw in the regular Texas Legislature House session that the members of that body soundly rejected the attempts by Texas Senators to inject private school choice into the school finance deal. That continues to be the case today, which is good news for schools like Glen Rose ISD, which counts on our elected officials not dispersing taxpayer money into private schools.From Texas Tribune.

Educators argue private school choice saps money from the public school system, while proponents say it offers low-income parents choices beyond the limited scope of the public education system.

That position could put the representatives in private school choice advocates' crosshairs as they gear up for re-election in 2018. Huberty, already a target of efforts to unseat him in the next Republican primary, called it an "onslaught" against public education.

VanDeaver said educators have two options: They can give in to the Senate's attempts to attach school finance and private school choice, or they can vote against legislators who want those issues linked.

"If you don't stick up for yourselves in a real way ... we are going to lose," Bernal added.

Here's audio from Wayne Rotan talking about the importance of public school funding in March 2017 a the GRISD school board meeting. MP3 - while he doesn't specifically talk about the carveout the Texas Senate wants to do with school choice, I know he is not for it. What's interesting here is that 1 out of every 3 pennies Somervell County collects stays with the school, with the other 2 going to the state. Listen to the whole thing to hear the underlying situation, as GRISD is very definitely affected by decisions made by the Texas Legislature, including in the special session coming up
