Abbott’s teacher “shortage” task force raises questions | P. Bush gets more baggage for runoff – Pratt on Texas 3/8/2022

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Governor Abbott has tasked the TEA commissioner to assemble a task force to look into public school teacher shortages. Why now? We began the last school year with a record number of teachers employed, as well as administrators, and the lowest attrition level in a decade. The Democrats, in the press, are using this as a reason to call for more money for teachers but districts are mostly awash in cash. How about a competitive market instead of the government socialist market for education which would benefit teachers as well as students and their families?

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.

In the “War of the baggage” that is the GOP runoff for attorney general, P. Bush just added a steamer trunk sized bit to what’s weighing him down.
