Extractions: This is the first in a series of reports about public education in Texas. This series of reports, produced by the Center for Public Policy Priorities as part of the Texas Kids Count Project is entitled Measuring Up: The State of Texas Education . It explores issues in education of Texas children, with an emphasis on low-income and disadvantaged children in public schools. This introductory report summarizes many of the challenges faced by students in Texas, as well as challenges faced by the schools they attend. The topics for this overview and the subsequent reports in this series were suggested during meetings and discussions with policymakers and education experts. Each report will provide an issue-specific analysis including relevant statistics for each county and descriptions of educational reforms and model programs for improving childrens education. The information for these reports comes from an extensive literature review, data from state and federal agencies such as the Texas Education Agency and the U.S. Census, and interviews with experts in the field. Most of the information reported here is from the 1996-7 school year and is the most recent data available. Over the next several months

Extractions: BUDGET PROCESS UPDATE Despite a robust economy, state resources to meet growing needs in a growing state and to address long-neglected problems will apparently be limited, at best. This unsettling reality is beginning to sink in as lawmakers prepare for the coming session. Readers may be surprised to realize how difficult the coming budget deliberations are likely to be, but it is important to remember that the two-year state budget is now approaching $100 billion. It will not merely be a matter of how much money is available but how investments in meeting human needs are prioritized. Policy Pages and alerts will keep you informed of those developments as they emerge.

Texas will invest about $2.9 billion in the state's workforce development system in fiscal 2000. Of this, about $1 billion or 34 percent is appropriated to the Texas Workforce Commission. Another $618 million represents the Texas Education Agency's investment in secondary career and technology education, adult education and the Windham School System (the prison school system). Post-secondary career and technology education will receive about $794 million, while workforce services for individuals with disabilities account for another $318 million.

Extractions: Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Recommendations of the Texas Comptroller Chapter 1: Electronic Government At least 35 state agencies distribute state or federal grants to various programs and organizations, largely through paper processes. A statewide electronic grants management system could streamline this process, saving time and paper, increasing data accuracy, and improving the allocation of state and federal funding. Background In Texas, at least 35 state agencies distribute state-funded or federal pass-through grants, or both, largely through paper-driven processes. These grants support programs in state and local government, university research, nonprofits, and other organizations. Paper-driven processes consume large amounts of paper and are subject to more problems with inconsistency and data entry errors, than electronic processes. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) addressed problems with its paper-driven processes with a streamlined, automated system, the Integrated Grants Management System/Partnership 2000 (IGMS/P2000). Toward a Grants Management System in Texas EGTAW members include information technology (IT) staff from state agencies as well as agency grants staff who are knowledgeable about IT issues. The group met for the first time in July 2000 to discuss barriers to the creation of an electronic grants system, outline an implementation plan for such a system, and share information. The group will present a concept paper to agency heads to get their approval for development of an electronic grants system and will report on its work to the 2001 Legislature.
Extractions: Media Contact: Bill Wyatt Gene Rose State Legislators Eager to Work with President Bush on Education Reform High standards, accountability follow state education policy trends WASHINGTON, D.C. President George W. Bush 's recently released education reform proposal is a reflection of many of the policy positions of the nation's state lawmakers, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) said today. "Overall, state legislators should be heartened by President Bush's education proposal," said Virginia Delegate James Dillard , chair of NCSL's Education, Labor and Workforce Development Committee . "President Bush's plan is pragmatic and results oriented. It also emphasizes accountability, something state policymakers have been doing for a decade." Over the years, state legislatures have established high academic standards, implemented accountability measures and expanded charters schools in nearly all 50 states. President Bush's proposal, which was modeled after Texas' education reform measures, echoes similar themes.

Extractions: 04/11/2003 10:22:56 AM According to published reports this morning, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst has come up with a school finance proposal that would cut property taxes in half, raise the states sale tax, and change the way Texas finances its public schools. The proposal is said to increase the states share of school funding, to redefine equity, and to eliminate sharing of local tax dollars between districts. The plan is not expected to be released for several days. Yesterday the Senate approved a paperwork reduction bill, SB 13 by Senator Judith Zaffirini (D-Laredo). In the last session, Governor Rick Perry vetoed such a bill.

Extractions: MINDS VIDEO OF FORUM SESSIONS New federal mandates have changed the rules for adopting education technology interventions-and changed the roles of district and state-level education technology decision makers. What do these changes mean for districts, states, regional education agencies, and companies? Specifically, how do these changes affect the types of data states, districts, and schools use to justify technology plans and purchases? How do these changes affect product development cycles and requirements? What systems for warehousing, analysis, and management already populate the market? What can we learn from various state and district pilot projects? How much is innovation threatened by new demands for research-based decisions? What happens to student privacy rights in school-level data collections? What new partnerships and alliances make sense now? These urgent issues were discussed recently in a forum jointly presented by the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) This half-day event was held in conjunction with the NSBA T+L conference, November 12, 2002, at the Adam's Mark Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
