The Gov is starting to tell what he wants to do in the new year. No real shock. Expand the baby sitting/Pre K program, Lower standards for the lottery scholarship. If he sticks to this two point plan the big fight could be with himself.
As you may or may not know the Pre K program only gives the money to pay for the teachers (Your welcome TEA). No money goes to where to put the students once the state has them. Many schools and school systems are already at capacity. "Trailer teachers" are starting to hit many school systems as trailers are being used to house the new program. Now Phil wants to expand the program even more. Where does Phil think the schools are going to put all the new little wards of the state?
On the other hand Phil wants to lower the standards for the lottery scholarship with the excess lottery money. What else has eyes on that same excess money? Building and expanding the schools.
Could Phil have just picked a fight with himself?
At least it won't be partisan.
