Public school finance is a complicated topic, especially in Texas. To celebrate July’s special session, we’re posting a three-part series detailing everything you need to know about public school finance. Don’t forget to read Part 1 and Part 3. Keep reading to see Part 2 below!

For further reading: Equity Center’s “A Plan For Texas,” Center for Public Policy Priorities’ school finance reform presentation, Texas Public Policy Foundation’s “Texas School Finance: Basics and Reform,” Texas School Coalition’s missions and goals, and Texas Association of School Boards’ school finance plan. Again, these are only a few of the many perspectives on public school finance in Texas. Happy reading!
