Thankfully, many of my college friends found jobs as teachers after the last legislative session. Sadly it was at the expence of the layoff of many more experienced, better paid teachers. This brain drain of the Texas education system occured when the Leg decided to cut funding and load its “rainy day” fund. It is apparent that being near last in education is not good enough for our worthless gerrymandered Legislture. I believe they would love to see the Texas Education System dead last in the nation. Sadly, we do not have far to fall. It is raining Mr. Perry, what are you prepared to do about it?
