Standing up to the legislature on school finance

Our district needs to stand up to the Texas Legislature, fight for our fair share of funding in order to protect smaller classroom sizes and help retain good teachers. Unbelievably, not all of our property taxes collected through recapture are actually spent on schools - and the current budget diverts nearly $3 BILLION of local school property taxes to non-education related expenses. Only common sense reform will help our district and reign in property taxes.
