Quotes

"My gut feeling is it is going to pass, maybe with 60 percent of the vote," Pickett said. "It would be nice if we can get in the 70s, so we can go to the Legislature and point outout to representatives that their districts supported the proposition."
...is yet another sign that it's time for Texas to get serious about preparing our teachers for success," ATPE Executive Director Gary Godsey said. "When we allow programs to set their entrance bar too low, we deny teachers the respect they deserve as professionals tasked with one of the most important jobs around - educating our children."
That performance also led Abbott to say that "the leading supporter (Davis) of late term abortions is running for governor of the great state of Texas."
said Williams, who was appointed by Gov.  Rick Perry  in 2012. " The Texas Education Agency will continue carrying out its responsibilities in providing funding for our public schools based on the current system and ultimately the legislative decisions made at the end of this legal process.”"
