05.13.2019 — Last week, TASA signed on to a joint letter with other education-related organizations that calls on the Legislature to pay attention to several specific concerns as the final school finance plan is developed: the need for flexible funding; the dangers of moving to current-year values and instituting a 2.5% limit on local school district tax collections; the problems with test-based funding and adding more high-stakes writing assessments; and the issues with school start date restrictions.
