Texas, which may balance its budget by firing thousands of teachers, plans to commit $25 million in state funds to Formula One auto racing each year for a decade.
As many as 100,000 teachers in Texas may be fired because of spending cuts to cope with the state’s budget crisis, according to Moak Casey & Associates, an Austin-based education consultant. For $25 million a year, the state could pay more than 500 teachers an average salary of $48,000.
TVNL Comment: Good old Republican values. They mock intellectuals. They take pride in being stupid. They cherish intellectual imbeciles like George W. Bush and laugh at "liberals" because they are intellectual. The worst thing that ever happened to this nation is that the North won the Civil War. The South should have started their own nation. The rest of this country would be the best place in the world without them. Driving around in circles wasting precious fossil fuel and polluting the air is their favorite intellectual stimulation. What a sad state of humanity.
