    School districts throughout Texas got some surprising news Monday: $831 million of federal aid tied up for months in a high-profile battle between Gov. Rick Perry and Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin is now available to retain and hire teachers.

    <snip>

    The crux of the nine-month battle between Perry and Doggett centered on the use of the money, part of a federal education jobs bill intended to help districts hire or retain teachers. After Perry wouldn't guarantee that the money would go directly to schools, Doggett filed an amendment to ensure that it would.

    Cutting 4 billion from the state budget has nothing to do with the local district budgets that have already taken up any slack which is what districts do. You would probably just shutdown and wait for more State money. School districts here are pretty self sufficient and much of that money went to administrators. Doesn't really matter to a liberal, just spend more money, right

    Yes, it does actually. That money comes from the school budget. That is $4 billion they don't have.

    Do you have any specific examples of what you are talking about here?

    Dude we already have a crappy education in this State. Obviously something is wrong with the way we are and have been dealing with this situation. And guess who is the Governor. And guess which party is control of the State Legislature.

    The 4 billion comes out of the STATE Budget, not the District Budget, you don't know the difference. You really think that property taxes go to the state and not the local counties? Unbelievable

    I will tell that to my son who graduated from the local school district, got a dual degree in a State University and is now a successful architect.

    That is a nice little anecdote there

    You say results matter yet when Texas education is ranked nationally it does abysmally. Does this result matter or not?

    Ranked on what? Why are rankings so important you and not actual results which speak for themselves? Seems that Companies keep moving to TX and bringing their people here. Rankings are subject to distortions and many are not viewed for accuracy or context. The location of TX alone creates a different demographic than other areas of the country and that demographic skews rankings. I know that is hard for you to understand

    Districts get that money, so you are again factually wrong.

    The District gets funds from the state and from the local county. If the school district needs or wants more money they can go to the people in the District and ask for it. You obviously always rely on someone else, in this case the state. Liberals never have enough money to spend on their union members and failed education effort
