4th Gen, I am not a defeatist; I am mad as hell. Perry caused most of this financial mess. Rick and his gang drastically cut corporate taxes in 2006, without cutting spending. Then they granted AG-Exemptions for land used as private game preserves so their rich cronies could buy private hunting grounds and pay little taxes on them; thus denying school districts that revenue. Those same AG-exemptions on real estate taxes are not realistic; that also denies school revenue. I pay the same taxes for my $225,000 home that a land owner pays on a ranch worth $3,000,000; that is not fair to you or to me. I am mad as hell that the TEA party and corporations don't want to pay their fair share of taxes. And then when times get tough, they want to balance the budget on our school districts.

If you think teaching school is so easy, go volunteer to be a substitute teacher. Anyone who thinks we didn't need those 100,000 teachers is not facing reality. What are we suppose to do with the 85,000 new students Texas will get over the next two years.

I have no doubt that we can "have school" with 40 kids in a classroom. However, if we want to teach them anything, we need to have no more than 25. Obviously, our generation proved that big classes don't work, for it produced idiots like you and me.

Bottom line: The old quote is right. We get what we pay far. Texas is already last of the 50 states in what we fund eduction...and we are going to cut it 12% more???

One last thing. Before you accuse me of caving into Germany and Japan, please know that I pull two tours of duty on the ground in the jungles of Nam. I have earned a right to express an opinion whether you like my opinion or not.
