Texas Public School Advocates Already Regrouping for Next Battle
AUSTIN, Texas - The fight for public education funding is far from over, according to several hundred school advocates from across the state who gathered in Austin this weekend. The conference was organized by the grassroots organization Save Texas Schools, which was created during the past legislative session as lawmakers were proposing billions of dollars of education cuts to help balance the state budget.

Jason Sabo, an Austin public school parent and a volunteer for Save Texas Schools, says the message going forward is "Get ready!" Families, he says, need to brace not only for the impact of a $4 billion shortfall to schools, but also for additional cuts if the next legislature doesn't fix structural budget problems.

1. The "structural budget problems"
Are the elephants in the room. Everyone knows they're there and no one wants to talk about them. Things can certainly get a lot worse and they will. We can break the education system so bad we return to illiteracy in this state where education is only afforded to the very rich. :grr:
