“In today’s economy, Texas cannot afford to fully educate some students and not others. We just can’t.”

Dr. Robledo Montecel: “We need to be honest about the fact that we plan for 25 percent attrition, and we budget for a two-tiered system. We assume that fewer students will graduate than started in kindergarten. This assumption is built into teacher hiring practices and into curriculum decisions about which courses will be offered and to whom. Student attrition is built into facilities planning and funding decisions. But it doesn’t have to be this way.”
