    From @dallasnews: Texas House carves students who failed STAAR tests out of virtual education funding.⁩ #txlege #txed https://www.dallasnews.com/news/education/2021/08/30/texas-house-carves-students-who-failed-staar-tests-out-of-virtual-education-funding/

    The House will vote on the SB15 remote learning bill today. It's a good bill but we urge the House to remove an amendment that could exclude students who fail STAAR. Schools and parents need options and funding to do what is best for the safety of students. #txlege #txed

    SB15 is a needed, important bill that provides remote learning for students who need it. But a House amendment would link funding eligibility to performance on STAAR, which could exclude at-risk students. #txlege #txed

    Tying funding to passage on the STAAR test during a pandemic could prevent certain students from eligibility for virtual ed. Due to a House amendment added to SB15, parents of struggling students would have fewer options. Final vote expected Monday. #txlege

    Over the last decade, total recapture paid by Texas school districts has nearly tripled. Those are local school property tax dollars that the state is using to help fund the rest of state government. #txlege #txed
