Funding Crisis for Texas education:

Robin Hood – Robbing the Hood? By Lola Searcy


ho would have ever thought the State of Texas would be facing such a crisis in its educational system? The financial problems with the State of Texas’ school districts have been ongoing; but I don’t think anyone ever thought school districts all over the State and the nation would be talking about laying off teachers, closing schools, and forcing teachers to retire; ready or not! How did we (The State of Texas and the United States) get ourselves in this mess? Some say it was bound to happen in Texas when Legislators enacted the infamous “Robin Hood” plan. You remember the Robin Hood plan, don’t you? The Robin Hood plan was a media nickname given to legislation enacted by the U.S. state of Texas in 1993 to provide court-mandated equitable school financing for all school districts in the state. Similar to the legend of Robin Hood, who “robbed from the rich and gave to the poor”, the law “recaptured” property tax revenue from propertywealthy school districts and distributed those in propertypoor districts, in an effort to equalize the financing of all districts throughout Texas. Article 7 of the Texas

Frito-Lay associate Telly Davis helps Sarah Zumwalt students Lizbeth Morales, Brenda Hernandez and Katia Gonzalez assemble their robot in preparation for National Robotics Week competition at the school. Programs, like this one, help students prepare for the future. Constitution states, in part, “. . . it shall be DUTY OF THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE to establish and make suitable provision for the support and maintenance of an efficient system of public free schools.” However, the state of Texas only dedicates a $.0025 portion of the state sales tax and the net proceeds from the Texas Lottery, as well as earnings from the Permanent School Fund, to primary and

secondary education. Otherwise, state funding is determined by the Texas Legislature. The primary source of education funding in Texas remains with the school districts’ ability to assess property taxes. In other words, the nicer the neighborhoods, the bigger the homes, the wealthier the homeowners, the higher the property taxes; and the more you pay in property taxes, the more money your school district

receives. So, I started to think back to when the “Robin Hood” plan first became an issue in the State of Texas. And, it goes all the way back to the initial lawsuit back in 1984. In 1984, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund filed suit against state Commissioner of Education William Kirby on behalf of the Edgewood Independent School District in San Antonio, citing discrimination against students in poor school districts. The plaintiffs charged that the state’s methods of funding public schools violated the state constitution, which required the state to provide an efficient public school system. School finance lawsuits must take place in state court, since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that education is not a fundamental right protected by the U.S. Constitution (San Antonio v. Rodriguez). The case, Edgewood Independent School District v. Kirby, eventually went to the Texas Supreme Court, which unanimously sided with Edgewood. The plan is also claimed to have been one of the worst financial disasters in US history by decreasing the value of Texas real estate by $81

The End Is Coming 1 John 2:15-17 “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does HenRy nelson comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”


heard a story the other day about a woman who said, “My mother and I returned to my parents’ house late one evening to find my father, my college-age brother, and my sister fast asleep. My mom had forgotten her house keys, so we knocked loudly, first at the back door and then the front and side doors. They yelled her father’s name over and over, with no answer. They even blew the car horn which aroused the neighbors, but no one at

her house. They walked over to a friend’s house and phoned home, finally waking her brother. When they got back, her brother let them in. Dad was in bed, snoring, with the television on. Mom quietly switched it off. Dad woke right up. “’Do not turn that off,’ he said. ‘I am watching it!” Several applications could be made, but here is mine. Her dad is asleep while the worlds show rushes on. And perhaps he is asleep in regard to everything else that is going on, including the Lord. What about you? Are you asleep? Romans 13:11-12 says, “And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.” Amen! Paul was saying that the grand finale of salvation is almost here. The time is closer than it’s ever been. We need to wake up. In many ways you are asleep and you do not see what is coming.

Consequently, you are not working. You are not working for the Lord. You are only busily involved with life’s pursuits. Matthew 24:3 says, “As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately.”Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” The end; those words do not sound good unless it is “the end” to a bad movie or the end to something bad that has happened to us in life. Then there is the end of the world when the Lord is going to put His foot down, so to speak, and call everything to a halt. What some consider to be the end of the world may only be the start of something better for us who are in Christ. Amen! All I can say is you do not need to add to any chaos in this world or our country. How do we avoid this? Romans 12:1718 says, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” We strive for peace with all people. Amen!

“Taste Test” Wake up! Breakfast Casserole

c iTy B eaT You must preach Christ, witness for Christ and speak for Christ, but do it as kindly and peaceably as possible. There will be hatred of people. Matthew 24:910 says, “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other.” Amen! In some ways you should not be too surprised when people turn away from the faith, drop out of the church and stop going anywhere. It will happen to some people. Most people who drop out are either mad or dissatisfied for one reason or another and they generally end up going to another church. If they can be happy and grow in the Lord somewhere else then so be it! Brothers and sisters, you can expect some persecution and or slander in this world if you take a stand for Christ. For example, when was the last time that you spoke up for Christ at work? If you would like to have the full message please request it at:

Dallas Mayoral candidate Ron Natinsky held a press conference on Monday at the Cedar Soils Restaurant located at 1326 Lamar Street, Downtown Dallas. The purpose of the press conference was to unveil his priorities for moving Dallas forward.

culture. He mentioned the importance of walkable neighborhoods, sports teams and recreational opportunities, entertainment options, strong libraries and beautiful, well-kept parks. Mr. Natinsky said Dallas schools are improving, but he believes there must be continued investments so that Dallas’ workforce of tomorrow is educated and prepared. He said he will continue to meet with DISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa to explore various other avenues in which to help Dallas schools continue to excel, noting that some of the nation’s top ranked schools are in Dallas’ Southern sector and the City must continue to support them. Downtown revitalization is another priority. Mr. Natinsky strongly supports a culturallyinclusive urban center; to expand downtown mobility options and explore innovative strategies for funding transit lines and infrastructure; to create affordable housing developments; and to create a parking plan through a new management collaborative that will make parking downtown an amenity and not an impediment. Mr. Natinsky said he is committed to be a watchdog at City Hall, pledging to cut waste and abuse to create effective, efficient government. The Dallas election is Saturday, May 14. Early voting begins May 2 and runs through May 10. If you are not registered to vote, and you would like to cast your vote in the May election, you must register on or before April 14.

Funding Crisis for Texas Education, billion, an amount far in excess of the revenues received. This resulted from unintended positive feedback forces. As taxes went to benefit districts other than those taxed, property values decreased. People moved to other districts with more favorable taxation, which further decreased values. Lower assessed values lowered tax revenues, and the “recapture” mentioned above (also known as “confiscation threshold”) was lowered. Decreased tax revenues also meant increasing tax rates to pay for works within the district. “Although Robin Hood reduced the spending gap between Texas’ propertypoor and property-rich districts by $500 per pupil, it destroyed about $27,000 per pupil in property wealth. Public policy experiments rarely produce complete successes or total failures.” Occasionally, however, there’s a policy disaster so catastrophic that everyone agrees that something has to change. California’s convoluted attempt to deregulate electricity was one example. Texas’s decade-long experiment in school finance equalization—universally referred to as Robin Hood—is another.” But, are we justified in placing the blame on the Robin Hood plan, or is it

in Business sinCe 1971

just about the State of Texas’ legislators and the state’s school districts’ inability to be good stewards with our money and the education of our children?

continued from front page

The State of Texas has consistently ranked at or near the bottom when it comes to testing, our graduation rate, and in teacher salaries. Then along came the Texas Lottery! It was supposed to pump billions of dollars into the economy; thereby enabling us build more schools and decrease class size so that students could receive more one-on-one instruction. I remember when the late Ann Richards’, then Governor of Texas, face was plastered over all televisions, and her voice could be heard on every radio station in the State, asking us to vote for an amendment to the Texas Constitution in November of 1991, authorizing lottery sales in Texas. And sure enough, we did. And here we are 20 years later, talking about closing schools, firing and laying off teachers! According to the Texas Lottery Commission, the allocation of lottery sales is as follows:62 percent is paid out in prizes; 27 percent is paid to the Foundation School Fund, which is used to support state public education; 5 percent is paid to retailer commissions; 5 percent is retained to cover lottery administration costs; and approximately 1 percent (specifically, the value of

unclaimed prizes) is transferred to the Texas Legislature for allocation to other state programs And, by the way, then Governor Ann Richards purchased the very first ticket in an Oak Hill grocery store! (I wonder if and how much she won?!!) And, I am by no means a mathematician, but after 20 years of “playing the games of Texas,” we should not be talking about laying off and forcing teachers to retire! Now, I’m not so sure I want to place all the blame on the Robin Hood plan! I think I need to just call a spade a spade and say we have not been good stewards with our money and with the education of our children! But since I don’t have a plan to fix it, I’m open for suggestions because we definitely need to fix it! And when I say “we,” I mean our local and state legislators, our superintendents, educators, parents and citizens, because our children will be the ones who suffer in the long run! “Nothing is more important than education. Our state’s future tax base and fiscal well-being depend directly on a highly educated work force.” – Carole Keeton Strayhorn, former Texas State Comptroller.

chRisTiaN mOmeNTs Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil; joy fills hearts that are planning peace! Proverbs 12:20 NLT Plotters plot only for their own benefit while planners plan for the benefit of others. dR. William m. CamPBell

Are you a plotter or a planner?

s I travel around the country speaking to men on Annual Men’s Day, and workshops I find that many men do not think they are worth much to God in their own church. Most Christian men do not understand their roll, job, and responsibility in the local church. There are many reasons why men do not understand their roll in the local church. First of all they are not respected as men in many cases. You cannot treat a man less than a full-grown man and expect him to perform, as he should in the local church, or anywhere else as far as that matter. Most men do not perform the way they should in the local church because they feel that their presence and opinion does not carry any weight within the church, so they never commit themselves to carrying out the responsibilities of the male factor within the church. This is just one reason, because there are many more that goes unnoticed. In some churches men feel inferior to women because of the church leader, because some leaders try to pastor men the same way they pastor women. They brag on women and give them praise for their efforts, but when it comes to the men, nothing is ever said as far as gratefulness toward the men. Do not get me wrong, we are not talking about all church leaders, because I know many church leaders who knows how to deal with men, my pastor is one of them who understand dealing with men in the proper manner will cause men to become more committed to their duties and responsibilities in the local church. You can tell what churches have pastors who are dealing with men the proper

way, because that church always carry a vast number of men. I know one church here in our city that can do anything it wants to do, because anything the pastor comes up with, or wants to do, it gets done because the man power in that church is very committed because of that pastor. Any pastor who wants to have a very thriving church at all levels can accomplish this if he has the ability, and love to deal with his men on a regular basis. Take a look at (Genesis 2:5). God would not let it rain upon the whole earth, because all the plants would have grown out of control without someone to trim them and keep them, and Moses states the fact that the reason why God would not let it rain is because He did not have a man to take care of it, and till the ground. You see the Garden of Eden was the church personified. The Garden was the personification of the church today. We see that man’s job is to takes care of the church and the pastor. You see, some people within the church try to separate the church from the pastor, but you cannot do that, because the church and the pastor are one. You cannot divide the pastor from the church nor the church from the pastor. You see, the pastor is in the image of Christ until He comes. This tells me that there are some more shepherds somewhere, those other shepherds are pastors of churches today because the Bible makes it plain who He was talking about. When He appears the pastors will be relieved of their duties. Pastors are not Jesus Christ, they are not Bosses, they are not Lords over churches, but they are replicas of, they are a type of, they are in the image of Jesus Christ until He comes. This is why God the father looks down on people who mistreats, and do wrong things to pastors, because that pastor is in the image of His son Jesus the Christ The same way you would be about you son. Let us not forget to read our Bibles, and may God bless you REAL GOOD, and may He ever keep you in His loving care.

Advice Column: Ask Karen Hollie Why Does It Hurt So Much? The great-untold story of divorce is how much it hurts and not just the spouse who’s left behind but also even the spouse who’s doing the leaving. Many people who have gone through divorce remember that it feels — it feels geRaldine davidson-HookeR like having a piece of yourself ripped away. I will put it this way, seven years after separation: “This year it’s just a dull ache. Last year it hurt to breathe.” People who haven’t been through divorce usually can’t understand how deep, how searing, and how debilitating the pain is. Try if you want to explain it to them; they probably just won’t get it. Just imagine the same person you vowed to love and cherish is now your adversary. You feel betrayed. Of course it’s going to hurt. Another reason it hurts so much is that most people who are going through divorce have to deal with so many losses all at the same time. You’re hurting for a broken relationship, of course. And often at the same time, you’re hurting because of that feeling of being betrayed by your spouse. Or maybe you feel betrayed by somebody in your spouse’s family. And often at the same time, you’re also hurting over the changes in your life. And there are so many changes connected with divorce. Sometimes you have to change where you live, how you spend your day, what you can afford to do, how much time you spend with your children and on what schedule, and how you can plan for the future, all while you’re trying to deal with a whole new world of lawyers, judges, pleadings, and court dates. We have travel many avenues of single status today. As Christian’s women, we know that there is only one solution for dealing with pain, rejection, loss, despair, anxiety, loneness, separation, death and divorce. A Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ. He will never leave you nor forsake you (John 14:18; Hebrews 13:5). Others may not think much of you or invite you to spend time with them, but Jesus does (Matthew 11:28). Others may not like the way you look, but He looks at your heart (1 Samuel 16:7; Luke 24:38). Others may think you’re a bother because you’re old and in the way, but He will love you to the end (Romans 8:35-39).

Notes From Union Hope “Remembering Jesus Christ” 2 Timothy 2:815 was our Church school lesson.

eld lloyd T. moRgan


This would be Paul’s farewell letter to his son in the ministry Timothy. Paul from prison writes to encourage Timothy in suffering; the apostle puts him in mind of the resurrection of Christ (v. 8):

emember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead, according to my gospel. This is the great proof of his divine mission, and therefore a great confirmation of the truth of the Christian religion; and the consideration of it should make us faithful to our Christian profession, and should particularly encourage us in suffering for it. Today the focus of too many Christians has moved from Christ to this world. The Gospel is seldom preached in some churches, by gospel I mean the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord. Timothy is encouraged to remember

Jesus Christ. Let me ask of you dear reader “What would it profit you to gain the whole world and lose your soul?” Our morning message was delivered by Pastor Lloyd Morgan from the subject; ”Overcoming Satan and his devices”2 Cor 2:10-11. The devices that the subtle god of this world labors to destroy the children of God or at least to torment whom he cannot destroy, to perplex and hinder them in running the race which is set before them are numberless. He endeavors to divide the gospel against itself, and by one part of it to overthrow the other. How he seeks to deceive the believer in the same way he deceived mother Eve by causing them to doubt God’s word and his ability to complete the work of salvation in their lives. Phil 1:6; tells us “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: ”Our Lord never starts anything he cannot finish.



ave you noticed that the most inspiring part of your prayer closet experience is the part that leads you into adoration and thanksgiving? When I read my Bible I pay close attention to the PasToR ClaRenCe praises as well as the promises. HendeRson Praise is first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 29:35. Leah named one of her sons “Judah” which means “praise”. Our Lord came from the Tribe of Judah. Why was David a man after God’s own heart, among other things he praised God with his whole heart. The word “praise” is mentioned more than 100 times in the book of Psalms alone. Reading the Psalms will help us to praise God, even at prayer time. “Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and for His wonderful works! Psalms 107:8”. When there is Prayer in the closet, there ought to be some Praise in the closet also.

ez Bryant is having problems adjusting to grown-up, millionaire life. And it seems as though the city of Dallas could be victim. In the 60s the Oakland Raiders had a like problem in Beaumont, Texasraised Warren Wells. John Madden said Wells could have been the most leon simon talented player he coached. Gene Upshaw said Warren’s problem was never with the team or practice. He couldn’t control himself on his off days. Both players are east Texans. Both have a problem respecting women. Warren had a couple of rape allegations. Dez, according to very reliable sources, has a problem cussing unescorted females. Both offenses could carry the death penalty if discovered by the mates of these women. Warren wouldn’t take advice very well. If anyone is giving Dez any apparently he’s not listening or he’s not getting good advice. dez BRyanT The similarities of these two young men are frighteningly amazing. I hope the endings are different. Warren left Oakland, traded to the Houston Oilers that was too close to Beaumont. Houston had a game against the Cleveland Browns; Warren said he would be coming later. That was after a little stint in the penitentiary before he left Oakland. Last I heard from Warren he was back in Beaumont running pass routes and didn’t know who he was! Dez still has a chance, but Dez has to be very careful who he takes advice from. When Dez lost his last year of eligibility at Oklahoma State he was listening to one Deion Sanders. Now Deion is criticizing him. Deion took another young man under his wing. This young man got away and went his own way. Sanders’ is trying to pimp these young men and if they’re smart enough to snatch away he bad mouths them. Deion try to deliver Dez to Under Armor. Dez went another direction thus the criticism. Let’s take a look at the tutor. I know some of you are old enough to remember when Deion came out of Florida State. Deion left the dugout during a baseball game after he found out he had reached a deal with the Atlanta Falcons, that’s loyalty. This is the same Deion Sanders I never saw practice with his teammates at Wichita Falls. He and his kid rode around on a golf cart that Deion said cost $30,000 while his teammates practiced in 110 degree weather. That’s a team player for you! Right now Dez has a few law suits pending for failure to pay a few bills. How many times have you heard Deion’s name being associated with lawsuits concerning payments for services rendered on some old car Deion had restored? Do you think this is the type tutor Dez needs, or the type to criticize. David Wells is a good guy. I just hope David does a better job of watching who hangs out with Dez or who tries to lead him. This is not the city for uncontrollable athletes. Roy Tarpley, Duane Thomas, Thomas Henderson the list goes on an on. WAKE UP DEZ!

nCaa: god-awful Worst to god-awful good By Jordan Blair


rutally boring, but UConn wins third crown. In Houston, Texas, on Monday night, was to be the game that culminated in a season finale, one shining moment turned into the worst NCAA final that I can remember. I texted my buddy, sports talk show host, Roger B. Brown and said I think Butler is tanking it. Roger B. replied, “No, they are stinking up the place,” and he was absolutely right. Both teams were stinking up the place. Only one team could win, but neither did much to win. It should have been like boxing match, call it a draw. In basketball, somebody had to win or lose, but not draw. Connecticut coach, Jim Calhoun, became the 5th coach to win at least three NCAA basketball titles, but it was down right ugly and I mean brutally boring and ugly. Butler went into the tournament unranked and UConn, which finished 9th in the big east, came into the title game as two of the biggest underdogs ever. Unfortunately, each played like underdogs. UConn’s 53-41 win is one of the most ugly wins in a final game since the peach basket games. This game officially set college basketball back some 66 years when Oklahoma state and North Carolina combined for fewer than 41 first half points, back in 1945. This game goes down as one of the worst in tournament history. It was just God awful to watch. If I would have paid to attend a game in Reliant Stadium, I would be asking for a refund with interest. How could two teams be so bad in the big game? Was it that UConn rode its defense to the title win or was it that Butler choked like a bone caught in your throat? I agree with Greg Anthony as he summed up the game, “This is the

Texas A&M players celebrate with the trophy after their 76-70 win over Notre Dame in the women’s NCAA Final Four college basketball championship.

worst half of basketball I have ever seen in a national championship game. Stifling defense from both Butler and UConn certainly contributed to the record low score and horrendous shooting on both sides, but his was still an aesthetically awful conclusion to an otherwise exciting, upset field NCAA tournament. But was it the most boring national title game we’ve seen?” Now to the good part. NCAA Women’s Championship game might have just saved the NCAA. A&M’s Women basketball team, coached by former Dallas South Oak Cliff basketball coach, Gary Blair, beat Notre Dame in an exciting knock down, drag out, 76-70 win. The coaches might not be household names; the players might not be well known, yet the national championship game between Texas A&M and Notre Dame on Tuesday night might well have saved the NCAA. Who would have believed it? It was better than the men’s. This is the first time since 2005 that neither Tennessee Connecticut has been involved. No Stanford either and no Baylor, no Maya Moore. Blair said instead of having Brittany Griner or Maya Moore and Gino,

but what’s wrong with good old Muffet McGraw and Gary Blair with teams that play tremendous team basketball that don’t just rely on one player. These two schools are better known for their play on the gridiron took the grandest stage in Women’s basketball in one of the biggest surprises in NCAA tournament history even though they both came in as number 2 seeds, they got there the hard way. Notre Dame’s sensational sophomore guard, Skyler diggins did all she could do but it just wasn’t enough to overcome the tremendous inside play of A&M’s Daniel Adams fueled by the harassing guards of Colson and Sidney Carter, they were too much for Notre dame. ’The game was so exciting that it made you forget about the God awful game on Monday night. One thing that the two games had in common, Coach Jim Calhoun of UConn and Coach Gary Blair of A&M are the oldest coaches to win NCAA titles. One god awful game and one exciting game might just have saved the NCAA. Just my opinion, what’s yours?

Texas House passes budget bill with deep cuts By Imami Evans


n a vote that sharply reflects the deep ideological fissure within the state, the Committee Substitute for House Bill 1 (CSHB 1), the general appropriations bill that sets the budget for the state, passed the Texas House of Representatives Sunday by a vote of 98-49. The bill cuts tens of billions from public and higher education, health and human services, and public safety programs, while keeping the state Rainy Day Fund mostly intact – a key goal of fiscal conservatives. For the 82nd Legislature, the momentum toward steep spending cuts was established early, even though Democrats have always insisted that the story of the deficit is also the story of certain well-heeled players – some of them major corporations – refusing to pay their fair share in taxes. “We can’t afford to subsidize companies that are making millions and billions of dollars while we have folks that are getting laid-off in our schools,” said State Representative Yvonne Davis. “It’s the will of the leadership to recognize that we need additional resources.” “I don’t understand how long we’re

going to continue this charade,” said Rep. Rene Oliveira (D-Brownsville) at one point during the floor debate. “Our fellow Texans, the poor, the middle-class, the sick, the elderly, the disabled, our schoolchildren, they all need us to stand up today.” This ideological attachment to limited government that the GOP has worked tirelessly to enshrine in the Legislature has helped Texas earn the distinction of ranking close to the bottom among the 50 states in per capita spending on public education. “A lot of people have misunderstood the message that the voters are sending when they say ‘less government, more efficiency,’” said Rep. Helen Giddings. “They do mean that. But then you have to go further and ask them the specific question, ‘Do you want to see cuts in education?’ And the answer to that, overwhelmingly, is ‘no’. ‘Do you want to see cuts in assistance to nursing homes?’ The answer is ‘absolutely no’. So we have to be sure we understand the message the voters are sending us.” It has been no small challenge for Democrats to broaden the budget discussion to include corporate tax exemptions passed by previous legislatures.

many, such as Rep. Mike Villarreal (D-San Antonio) feel that it is time for those who backed such legislation to come forward and publicly defend their choices in light of the current crisis. “We need more transparency, we need a systematic review of all tax expenditures,” Villarreal said. “Similar to the way we scrub our budget, we need to be evaluating tax loopholes that leak billions of dollars from our state coffers and treat one taxpayer differently than another.” The Texas Legislative Study Group, in a report submitted last Sunday during the third day of floor debate, offers this grim assessment: “In the wake of a recession, this budget will deliver an economic blow that costs Texas over 335,000 jobs over the course of the next two years, 44 percent of which are private sector jobs.“ “Voters don’t want waste, and neither do I,” Rep. Giddings said. “But I also want to make sure that we take care of our elderly, and we make sure that there are opportunities there for young people that want to go to college, and who don’t have to take out loans in such amounts that they will be indebted for many years to come.” “The thing I always call people’s attention to is that there are a lot of people in

this House who are still campaigning, rather than governing,” said Rep. Harold Dutton (D-Houston). “When the campaigns end and the election’s over and the winners have been decided, it’s my observation that people ought to come together and do what’s best for Texas. What’s happening here is that people are trying to do what’s best for party. ” Implicit within these remarks may be the harshest charge of all: that within Republican circles there is a strain of thought that practically hopes for fiscal crises to occur, to ease the path for budget cuts that serve to shrink the size of government according to conservative designs. Texas Republicans, of course, deny that they have any designs other than obeying the Texas Constitution and adhering to the popular sentiment that less government is better. “This budget reflects the economic realities facing our state, and it only spends available revenue,” said the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jim Pitts (D-Waxahachie) in a statement. “This bill, combined with the votes we took yesterday on HB 4 and HB 275, fulfills our constitutional responsibility to have a balanced budget.”

Texas blacks won two of the nation’s most significant civil-rights cases. They renewed challenges to the state’s white primary system four times, and, eventually, they won a Supreme Court decision in Smith v. Allwright (1944), which declared the white primary unconstitutional. This landmark case won by black Texans opened primaries for blacks throughout the South. In 1950, black Texans also won one of the major legal cases that eliminated segregation in the South’s graduate and professional schools. The Sweatt v. Painter case, filed by Thurgood Marshall, legal counsel of the NAACP, and local NAACP attorney William J. Durham of Dallas, forced the University of Texas Law School to admit black students.
