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.

This short video does a great job of explaining Climate Change. The more people who understand our situation the more likely we are to take the necessary steps to avoid the terrible consequences in store for us if we fail to act.

If you'd like a representative in the Texas State House who takes this seriously, please say so in the comments below. Thanks!

As this video makes clear, only urgent action to address Global Warming will do. My opponent won't even talk about this. He gets way too much money from people who profit from the fossil fuel industry.

I won't take a penny from that industry and I won't stop talking about this gravest of grave threats to our children's future. Please share if you agree with me that this is a critically important subject. Thanks!

Yesterday I had my second opportunity to take the stage in advance of Beto at his Town Hall in Tyler. Beto is such an impressive candidate. I couldn't resist the opportunity to get my picture taken with him. Beto is a superb candidate who is already improving the chances of candidates like me up and down the ticket.

I want to thank the organizers of the event, including my dear friends Nancy and Mike Nichols, for giving me the opportunity to address the standing room only crowd.
