Congressman Doggett urges action
Congressman Lloyd Doggett has written a letter urging the public to pressure Governor Perry and demand that federal education dollars be used to fund schools.
This disappointing, but not surprising, repeal of the “Save Our Schools” provision should serve as another call to action for Texas families fighting for the best public education for our children. All of us who have been seeking to avoid school closures and teacher terminations, and fighting to keep all education dollars close to our children should be urging the Governor and State Legislators to use every single dime of this federal assistance to add to the meager amounts they have recommended for public education. This money belongs to our children, it is not a bailout for Governor Perry to plug another hole in the mismanaged State budget.
