Public Education a Quiet Winner at the Polls

A new editorial in the Dallas Morning News notes that “…something important and all but unsung happened here in North Texas.”

“Thousands of residents in the Dallas, Frisco and Richardson school districts sent a strong message that kids in their communities deserve quality schools—and they’re willing to pay more to ensure it,” the editorial reads, noting that voters easily approved tax ratification elections and bond issues in many districts in the area.

“Now it’s time for lawmakers in Austin to do more to help. It’s the state, after all, that has trapped so many Texas districts in financial binds with its broken and outdated funding system,” the editorial states.
