Education

According to the article, Texas ranks very poorly in SAT scores, despite the claim that education is one of the state's priority. Any explanation to this contradictory situation? Yi Zhe Wu 21:12, 6 October 2007 (CDT)

perhaps it's not true that Texas values education. The quote after all says zip. What happened is that 100 years ago the state gave U Texas and Texas A&M oil lands--not worth much then but they are in the $20 billion range today, so higher education is well funded. K12 is a low priority, esp as the conservatives ridicule and attack teachers all the time. Richard Jensen 22:26, 6 October 2007 (CDT)
