Absolutely not, any new tax is a scourge on taxpayers that will NEVER go away and will be elevated again, and again, and again! We are now at a watershed time in Texas, are we going to take advantage of a state and national desire to break the ever continuing stranglehold of government on freedom and prosperity? Common sense and facts from the last fifty years show overwhelmingly that huge amounts of money extorted from taxpayers has absolutely no relationship to educational test scores! The complete lack of excellence in not only Texas schools, but in american schools in general, is societal, lack of discipline and "progressive ideology"being allowed to dominate American schools is the problem, and no amount robbed from tax payers will alter that fact! Surely, if we can waste billions of dollars on a fatally flawed education system, we could probably get the same dismal results for half as much money!
