School Finance Litigation -- Day 25

Day 25 of the school finance litigation resumed yesterday morning with the state’s first witness.  Dr. Grover Whitehurst was the director of the Institute of Education Sciences at the United States Department of Education under Secretaries of Education Rod Page and Margaret Spellings.   Whitehurst’s testimony focused primarily in two areas: criticism of the research base used by some of the plaintiffs and an analysis suggesting that Texas compares favorably to other states, particularly when data are disaggregated by race/ethnicity and socio-economic status.
