Texas School Finance: Past, Present & Future.
Cardenas, Jose A.
Attempts to resolve inequalities in the state's financing of education in the 1975 legislature were a failure because the groups behind the three advocacy positions (increase teacher salaries, increase funds for basic costs, and increase equalization) caused divisiveness that allowed erosion of the reform measures. The basic issues in late 1976 were essentially the same as those before the 1975 legislature--property tax equity, teacher salaries, enrichment equalization, and construction. If the finance dilemma is to be resolved, the legislature must either provide relief by having the state pick up an increased portion of the costs of education or the school budgets must be cut. The latter option would have dire economic consequences for the state. The school finance situation in Texas suffers from negative leadership. (Author/IRT)
