The following is a statement from Sen. Watson regarding the Texas Supreme Court ruling on school finance:
Everybody knows our school finance system is broken, including the Texas Supreme Court. And nothing in the court’s ruling today absolves the Legislature of its responsibility to fix it.
Justice Guzman wrote, “the constitution merely requires the system to be good enough.” Texans deserve better than “good enough” and it’s our duty to ensure that our schools have the support they need to help our children thrive, succeed and excel in the 21st century.
