Legislators Call for More State Funding for Public Education

Waco state Representatives Charles “Doc” Anderson (R-Waco) and Kyle Kacal (R-College Station) recently talked with Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith on a variety of issues, including public education funding.

“Better funding for public education is the solution to 80 percent of the state’s problems,” Kacal told a group gathered at the Baylor Club. “…You can’t make valid and good decisions unless you’re educated and know how to read,” Kacal said.

Anderson said that education is a “convoluted issue” but said that the state’s share of public education funding needs to increase.
