the unions probably caused this as well...

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)-- The quality of Texas' teachers is dropping largely because of low pay in a competitive market, an expert economist testified Tuesday in the public school finance trial.

Duke University professor Jacob Vigdor said teacher salaries were 30 percent lower in Texas than for other college graduates and have fallen behind salaries paid in other Sun Belt states. He added 32 other states pay higher salaries, whereas Texas' have not kept up with inflation since 2000.

Vigdor was called to testify by attorneys for wealthy schools that are among the 600 districts to sue the state over $5.4 billion in cuts to school funding.

The average Texas teacher salary is $47,311, well below the national average of $54,965. The pay is also historically low, noting that 50 years ago a teacher earned 50 percent more than a registered nurse in Texas, but now nurses earn 50 percent more than teachers.

Vigdor said the low pay has led quality teachers to leave the state or change professions, leading to an overall decline in teacher quality. He used statistics from 2010 for all of his testimony.

"The situation in Texas has declined over the past several years at a fairly rapid pace," Vigdor said. "It behooves the state to think carefully about whether they are investing in the teacher labor market at a level that is consistent with the goals that they have espoused."

Now I am an Army guy but the only reason why Army won the National Championships in 1944 and 1945 was because all of the other colleges and Universities had no teams. Because of the war, everyone that that was health was drafted. Well, if you were in West point or Annapolis you were exempt from the draft!
Now how did the Army win in 1914, I haven't a clue.

Army unveils WWII-inspired uniforms for the Army-Navy game

According to a release by West Point, the uniform design, which is Army's classic black and gold, pays tribute to 1944, which included the first of Army's three consecutive national championships and the World War II victory at the Battle of the Bulge.

What is his bases for making the allegation that "quality of Texas' teachers is dropping".
He seems to equate teacher salary to end results which means .... he is a bigot!
Oh, in per capita income, Texas is #25 which means average.

“The Communist Party USA not only welcomes the reelection of President Barack Obama, but actively engaged in the electoral campaign for his reelection and for the election of many Democratic Party congressional candidates,” Marquit declared at the conference, hosted by the Lebanese Communist Party.
Under Obama, he said,“…we have been forming Party clubs in states in which we previously had very few or even no members. This influx of new members led us to have a national Party school earlier this year to acquaint new members with the Marxist-Leninist orientation of the Party.”
The communist resurgence under Obama is not surprising, since he has consistently waged a Marxist class warfare campaign as President and was influenced as a young man by Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis.

Absurd. The only thing that matters is, as you said it, "World War II victory at the Battle of the Bulge." Your army football team of 1944 is totally insignificant and of no consequence what is so ever. Ever been to Bastogne and stood in the centre of "Place du Général McAuliffe?"

2) That makes him a bigot? You don't even know what the word means.
