But they’ve got some work to do including cutting those high property taxes.”

AMEN to that! Really getting aggravated. Since they can’t raise the tax rates for those with a Homestead and over 65 exemption, they keep raising the assessed value. Legislature could stop all this nonsense but doubt if they will. And they certainly could do a refund of tax payments from their coffers but they’d rather pump more into the public school system. Not sure they will ever understand that more money has never resulted in better education for public school students.

Nuke the mandatory government schools and put the parents and local communities back in charge of educating their children via the free market competition. The quality of teaching and learning would skyrocket and the costs would go down. You'd be paying for your own child's education, not for anyone else.

Texas would produce corps of bright, well-educated children and young people who haven't been indoctrinated in socialism and might actually learn things like the Bible and the Christian roots of America and freedom. It would be up to the parents to decide via the voluntary supply and demand of the schooling market. Right now, homeschooling is the best if a family can do it, but the free market could greatly expand that effectiveness.
