we wait for the Texas Supreme Court to issue its ruling soon in the largest
school finance case in the state’s history, Texas Taxpayer and Student Fairness
Coalition vs. Williams, these findings by the Education Law Center and Rutgers

schools,” said Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA President & CEO.

schools earns Texas its status as the worst state in the United States.
