Former far-right hard-liner says pro-voucher billionaires are using school board races to sow distrust in public education

May 1508:40 AM
 

When Courtney Gore ran for a seat on her local school board in 2021, she warned about a movement to indoctrinate children with “leftist” ideology. After 2 1/2 years on the board, Gore said she believes a much different scheme is unfolding: an effort by wealthy conservative donors to undermine public education in Texas and install a voucher system in which public money flows to private and religious schools.  Gore points to West Texas billionaires Tim Dunn and brothers Farris and Dan Wilks, who have contributed to various political action committees that have poured millions into legislative candidates who have promoted vouchers. The men also fund or serve on the boards of a host of public policy and advocacy organizations that have led the fight for vouchers in Texas. view article  arw

Greg Abbott says he’s not ‘responsible’ for public education budget shortfalls

May 1508:40 AM
 

If you don't like the budget cuts at your child's school — tough! It's your school's fault. That's the message Governor Greg Abbott had for Texans as he addressed state education finances and said it is not up to him or the state to fix it. Instead, he cited it as school districts' "consequence" for how they've handled their budgets as federal pandemic relief funds expire.  In an interview on Thursday on Lubbock-based radio station KYFO, host Chad Hasty asked the governor what his message was to concerned parents from Houston-area school district Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, who blamed Abbott for their district's $138 million deficit. Cy-Fair is the third largest school district in the state and is just one of many tackling financial woes expected in the 2024-2025 academic school year. In an interview on Thursday on Lubbock-based radio station KYFO, host Chad Hasty asked the governor what his message was to concerned parents from Houston-area school district Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, who blamed Abbott for their district's $138 million deficit. Cy-Fair is the third largest school district in the state and is just one of many tackling financial woes expected in the 2024-2025 academic school year.  view article  arw

Budget deficit widens (En español)

May 1408:40 AM
 

The 2023-24 budget deficit has widened after new calculations from property values and average daily attendance came in lower than expected. That means the district could be starting the 2024-25 school year with a $59 million deficit while finding ways to close the gap. Why it matters: District leadership have already shaved $26 million from the current budget and made $30 million in cuts for the 2024-25 school year. Without an influx in funds, options are limited to protect the classroom from effects of budget constraints. The details: Austin ISD is not alone in having to make difficult cuts. Stagnant state funding amidst inflation, ballooning recapture payments and unfunded mandates have plagued school budgets across the state. What they’re saying: “We are living under a crisis 100% manufactured by the state,” said Kevin Foster, District 3 Trustee. “We have enough money to run two school districts this size if the state didn’t rob us by ridiculous laws that they pass.” We’ll look at three avenues to get up to $60 million. view article  arw
