This time in the Lone Star State: Texas Philanthropist: Our Contributions Can Not Replace Public Funding

Last week Texas grantmakers who support public education took a field trip to the Statehouse to talk with legislators…They spent some time listening to lawmakers and finance experts apparently, but they also had a message to send – “don’t depend on philanthropy to replace public money!”

Pretty tame compared to the things going in Wisconsin right now, but we see again the tension created by states who cannot afford to meet the (often unrealistic) obligations they’ve created for themselves.
