This article fails to mention the reason Senator Doggett created the "Save Our Schools" amendment. In 2009, Gov. Perry diverted federal money allocated for public education towards the state's "rainy day fund." Doggett was attempting to insure that this diversion of federal money allocated for education did not occur again. Gov. Perry claimed that accepting that the federal money would be used to aid public education (and not just to satisfy the education budget that he has been unable to balance) was a violation of the Texas constitution and refused to bring the matter before Texas legislators. So, in truth, it was Perry who was holding the money hostage and Doggett was merely attempting to guarantee Perry didn't reallocate the money elsewhere. Only through some very twisted logic would anyone argue that Governor Perry has more concern for public education in Texas than Senator Doggett.
