I thought the LOTTERY was going to help Texas Schools? You wouldn't need a tax hike. Problem is you have let these people build too many NEW SCHOOLS and the tax payers pay the bill. This cosmetic surgery they have done on Texas Schools have made many rich, lining their pockets and laughing at the tax payers all the way to the bank. Keep building your prisons and filling them up (with some innocent)people. Here is where most of your money is going. When schools got too involved in politics that screwed the children & the system. Oh yea many CHURCH'S helped in this problem, but they don't pay taxes.

Chrystal654: They don't have SUPER POWER, the people that elect them are just STUPID. How much money does a SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER MAKE? They make deals & contracts with contractors inwhich they vote on and line their pockets. The lottery for education was a good idea, but too many GREEDY people got their hands in the pot and screwed it up. I don't mine paying taxes to see a kid make something of themself. I hate to see POLITICIANS take it a way from them. It is up to you and others of who you elect, there is where your problem is. You must let them know who the REAL SUPER POWER IS, YOU THE VOTERS. So some don't have kids ok, someone had a kid once up on a time other wise you wouldn't be reading this.
