Our Democracy is under attack. Rampant gerrymandering and legislative assaults strangle our inalienable right to self-governance. Reviving Democracy is the key to solving the many big problems we face today.

Media Advisory: Statement Regarding Nacogdoches ISD School Crisis

Students at Emeline Carpenter and Fredonia Elementary Schools, and the communities that rely on them, are the true victims in the growing crisis that NISD is struggling to respond to. Understanding the context of this crisis requires stepping back to the early part of this century before George W. Bush ran for president. Back then changes in population demographics were sending the educational testing industry into a death spiral. Their solution was to heavily invest in the candidacy of George W. Bush for president. He paid them back handsomely with his “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) program, which is better understood to be “No Educational Testing Company Left Behind.” NCLB proved to be a boon for this profit-seeking private industry and has plagued education ever since.

Ted Cruz did much the same thing when he visited Nacogdoches on July 6th. And Travis Clardy agreed with every bit of global warming denialism Cruz uttered. A point I made just yesterday on the front page of the Daily Sentinel. Much sooner than later politicians like this guy, Cruz and Clardy will pay a price for their vile acts of mis-leadership. Please help me hold them to account. Support my campaign for State House District 11.
