Texas Education Agency Under Sunset Scrutiny

The Texas Education Agency is up for so-called “sunset review” to determine how the agency might operate better. The Texas Sunset Advisory Commission staff currently is soliciting comments on TEA’s mission, structure, and performance. Public comments received by the end of this month will factor into the staff’s report to the commission, and the commission’s recommendations in turn will be considered by the legislature in 2013. The next couple of Hotline messages will offer some Texas AFT perspective on how to improve TEA.
