Watch For This Impending Texas Disaster


There's a lot of talk about education this week in Austin with much focus on school vouchers. Forget about vouchers. Remember the following two things which could rock Texas.

First, we are horrible at providing special education:



But what if the legal obligation of Texas not only to provide those services but what those services are to be has been wrong, inadequate, and illegal? The U.S. Supreme Court this term just decided to hear a case which might throw education in states like Texas for a loop:

If Texas is currently cheating the system by preventing students from having special education services, is there any question that the services they do provide is woefully inadequate?  It's simply refusal to pay the money. And the Supreme Court may tell schools next spring that they need to open up their pocketbooks.

You see Barry, your pervasive, liberal nose has once again rooted out like a rescued pot bellied pig--another example of the progressive doctrine at work, . You and others like you view the US as a Federal entity that supersedes the states in all matters and governance. This is the optics that you use. When in fact what still remains, for now, is the states still have some latitude in regards to state rights for anything that isn't SPECIFICALLY spelled out in the Constitution. What is still allowed, till now, is the right to somewhat freely travel between the states--that being said--and with your obvious disdain for Texas in tow--leads me to believe that you need to get in your Prius, pick up a New Yorker Mag RE primer- and head straight to upper state Vermont, but a little finca and learn how to churn cream for those two queers up there that make that "wonderful" ice cream you idiots crave.
Just saying.

Many people that need to be in special ed are just floated through the system . How is an employer going to know whether the student passed or just sent on through ! I know several young people that have diplomas that cannot read, write or count

The only thing we are horrible at is parenting. Go sit in a classroom for one day and find out.

The State won't "pay the money" because you, the good people who vote in local elections, absolutely go nuts when it's proposed that taxes are increased to cover all the needs. We'd have plenty of money to educate every student if only those complaining would pay up.

There are some children in the special ed system that parents refuse to accept will never be able to live on their own or have a job. It is very sad these children have severe disabilities, but the burden should not fall on school districts to try to educate them. The children need to be institutionalized if the parents are not able to care for them at home. It is very sad and my heart does go out to the parents, but facts are facts.
