9  Finance  Growth  Testing & Accountability

10  Myth: The Legislature increased education funding during the past legislative session  Truth: The state budget for public education is slightly higher than the previous biennium, but does not account for 170,000 additional students or loss of $3.2 billion in federal stimulus funds from previous budgets

11  Statewide budget cuts $4 billion from Foundation School Program $1.4 billion from education grants 170,000 additional students over biennium  NISD budget cuts $19 million in 2010-11 in anticipation Additional $42.4 million in 2011-12 (total $61.4 mil.) Reduced staff by almost 1,000 positions No salary increases, cut stipends Increase class size and many other reductions

12  Myth: Schools have significantly more administrative staff than they did 30 years ago.  Truth: The percentage of teachers to non- teachers hasn’t changed substantially since the 1980s. TEA didn’t count auxiliary personnel prior to 1980s.
