Speaker Straus praises plan to fix school finance system

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, released the following statement Wednesday about House efforts to reform the state’s school finance system:

“I want to applaud and thank Chairman Aycock and his team of Members for their efforts to improve our school finance system. I am very encouraged by the goals articulated today, such as greater equity, a reduction in Robin Hood and additional resources to help educators meet students’ needs. The Texas House is serious about improving public education and these principles give us plenty to build upon in the weeks ahead.”
