Lorena Garcia is a superintendent in a small district in the Rio Grande Valley. She tells it like it is. She has the courage to stand up to the charter billionaires. For some reason, Texas is now being besieged by charter operators, who see good pickings becasue the Texas legislature cut deeply into school funding after the 2008 recession and never restored what it cut. The legislature just doesn't seem to care about funding public school, only charter and (someday) vouchers, even though 90% of the state's children are in public schools. Someone should ask the Legislature about what they have in mind for the generation now in school. Do they want them to be productive citizens? Do they want them to be creators, innovators, doctors, scientists, artists, and engineers? Or do they expect those millions of children to be unskilled laborers?
