Back to School

ImageI recently did an on-camera interview with YNN for their Back to School series. If you have TimeWarner, access to the videos is open, otherwise the print stories are available to the public. The print stories are here and here. My comments:

“You can’t cut several billion dollars from the [Texas] education budget and expect education to be proficient. Those things don’t add up. My mother used to say ‘You get what you pay for.’”

“When [NCLB] passed, there was a smiley face beside No Child Left Behind that said ‘This is going to create equality, but 20 years later, our schools are no better situations than they were.”

“The bottom line is accountability [for legislators]. High stakes testing doesn’t work. We cannot test our way to equality.”
