    the diarist points out that Texas schools need money, and federal funding is only a small part of that formula. Furthermore, federal funds tend to be earmarked for things like special education and Title 1 programs. As long as Rick Perry and the GOP are in control here, they will slash education funding with impunity, and there's really not a damn thing we can do.

    Some of the bad policies, like NCLB, are federal, but Texas is implementing them on steroids. Again, with the GOP in control, we're kind of stuck.
