Texas: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick to Public Schools: Starve

Diane Ravitch's blog

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is the most powerful figure in state government. He is also the most loathsome person in the government. He had a talk show before he was elected to the State Senate. He was the Rush Limbaugh of Texas. His views are far right. He hates public schools. He has a passion for charter schools and vouchers. He doesn’t care about charter school corruption. He will not allow a new school finance bill to pass unless he gets vouchers passed too.

Fortunately the Republicans in the House of Representatives won’t pass vouchers. They care about their communities. Dan Patrick prefers to starve public schools.
