Details: Texas keeps falling behind in education, and if we want to remain competitive on a global level, our education system needs to catch up. In 2014, District Court Judge John Dietz found the Texas school finance system to be unconstitutional because it is not responsive to increasing standards, population growth in the state, or the educational needs of our students. Now the State Supreme Court is taking up the case.

Join Chandra Villanueva of the Center for Public Policy Priorities for a discussion about the right to a free public education and the constitutional questions raised by the inequality in resources available to certain Texas schools and students.
