You need to check your figures. You believe the spin the EPISD has been putting out. Why don't you check out the figures for yourself and quite being an EPISD stooge.You negative people are not educated on how districts have had to cut so much already. In 2006, districts got cut about 30% of their total funding from the state. Do you people even know that? A TRE is a way for districts to get back a PART of that. That's all it is. It isn't asking for more - it's asking for a piece back that was taken. Get educated!
Look at the taxes the EPISD has received and add them up. As a matter of fact the EPISD made out very well when the State froze the ADA because the EPISD had a drop in enrollment every year since 05-06. This means that the EPISD was getting more money than they would have gotten if the ADA was recalculated every year. Where did the extra money go?
It is not negative to try and keep you people from drinking koolaid on a daily basis.
