      When it comes to education: we rank second in public school enrollment, our teacher salaries rank 33rd, and we're 33rd in what we spend to educate our children. Our students rank 45th in the scores they make on the SAT.

      Texas is also 43rd in high school graduation rate and 50th in percent of population that is age 25 and older with a high school diploma.

        you might as well say there aren't any Dems in the red states and no republicans in the red states.

        it's about as honest.  we have some very bad schools and a lot of underfunded schools.  we have some good schools too.  a few really good cities.
