A master story-teller, Dr. José A. Cárdenas offers an insider's view of the 28-year history of school finance in Texas. More than a history, this book provides a blueprint for persons interested in bringing about future reform in schools and other social institutions. Beginning with a description of the Texas system in 1950, the account covers court cases, legislation, and advocacy efforts and concludes with the status and future of school finance reform. Personal vignettes sprinkled throughout offer glimpses of those special untold moments that impacted history. Much of this volume - including the myths of school finance and lessons learned - relate to reform efforts in other states as well. Officially released on April 29, 1997 - the 10th anniversary of the Edgewood decision by State Superior Judge of Travis County Harley Clark that struck down Texas' school finance system as unconstitutional.
