Three of our local state legislators recently came out in support of the EPISD bond issue. Our state senator was quoted in a Times article this way:
“We can’t count on, we can’t rely on, the state of Texas to help us.”
What we did not hear from them is “We will work hard to get the legislature to more fairly fund our local schools”.
It is evidently easier to lecture the voters than it is to represent them.
Their solution to the local school finance problem involves taking more money out of our pockets.
Many of us would suggest that the district do a better job of managing its expenses.
It is clear that our children need to be educated. Our local school administrators should focus on putting more of the money that they already have from us in the classroom and eliminating the wasted spending.
We deserve better
