How We Do Things in Texas

Sure, the Dallas school district gives free lunch to 80% of its impoverished students. But it turns out the district is property-rich, so millions of dollars will now be funneled out to support other districts. Dallas isn't the first Texas district to have its property values sneak up from behind, either.

It kinda makes ya yearn for the good old days, when serial liar/ex-US Secretary of Education Rod Paige could cook the books thoroughly enough to convince the sleeping press corps there was a "Texas Miracle." Rod later went on to call the NEA a "terrorist organization" and slink away, after paying off Armstrong Williams and other journalists to hype NCLB.
