Texas Ed Lawsuit: For the Money or the Kids?

Reprinted from My San Antonio

AUSTIN — Dismal graduation rates and even bleaker numbers showing just 25 percent of Texas high school graduates are college- or career-ready mean the state's public school funding system is inefficient, charged Bill Hammond, head of the Texas Association of Business, the latest group to sue the state over school finance.

The TAB, the state's largest business group, joined the court fight Wednesday, arguing that judges should put a new spin on whether the current system is efficient. Texas courts have previously ruled that vast funding inequities between rich and poor schools make the system inefficient.
