Lubbock ISD trustees will consider a resolution at its meeting on Thursday calling on state lawmakers to reject vouchers, tax credits, or any other effort to divert funding from public schools.

In the last session, legislators cut funding to public schools by $5.4 billion. More rigorous state testing standards were implemented as well.

The LISD board agenda also includes the annual evaluation and contract review for Superintendent Dr. Karen Garza.

It appears that LISD is afraid of market competition. If they were able to provide the best education in the county, without wasting funds on excessive administration & athletics, there would be no reason for them to fear competition. I believe that the people should have the right to choose education service providers, AND that the taxpayer funds go where each student-consumer goes. If Garza is unable or unwilling to get the student STARR scores up to par, her contract should be retroactively terminated, before she destroys more churches, and manipulates the council to close off access streets to even more neighborhoods.
