School Finance Failure Leaves Lubbock Students Without Books

Teachers in the Lubbock Independent School District returned to class Wednesday to find they are without some textbooks.

The failure to pass a new school finance reform bill means that foreign language, health and fine arts textbooks are sitting in warehouses until the state pays for them. So, area teachers are forced to use handouts and old books until the new ones arrive.

Tuesday, the State Senate approved a $2.8 billion education spending plan, but its passage depends on a separate tax bill that does not exist.

The current special session ends August 19th.
