teainfo via Twitter: 3:11 PM Jul 24th from web U.S. Dept.of Ed approved $2 billion in stimulus money for TX. 3:38 PM Jul 24th from web To be used for textbooks, teacher pay raises & increased per pupil funding. Stimulus funds will provide each school with an additional $120 per student & $800 pay raise to all teachers & "professional employees". in my humble opinion this is why education stinks in TX !!!!!!! My imagination what they could of done with Special Services with 2 billion! Please spread the word to all parents, advocates and list servers, so we can let them know our VOICE on this!
