Senator Wendy Davis Issues Statement on Court Ruling on School Finance

AUSTIN — "Today's decision by Judge John Dietz should serve as a wakeup call to Gov. Perry and our legislative leaders. His ruling that our schools are not adequately funded is an indictment of the current leadership's failure to safeguard our children's education and Texas' economic future. Judge Dietz's decision echoes concerns that I have heard from parents and teachers in my district and across the state. As a result of his ruling I believe the Legislature now has a constitutional obligation this session to restore the cuts it made to our schools."
