Angelina school districts could lose $1 million in proposed budget

Lufkin — The Lufkin Daily News is reporting: when Texas' House passed its version of the budget, East Texas public school superintendents were anything but happy.

Superintendents of smaller districts like Central, Hudson, Huntington and Diboll say they could lose up to $1 million or more.

Amendments can still be made to the bill, which White said he hopes is the case, especially in regard to public school finance.

In reaction to the bill’s passing, local superintendents voiced strong disapproval Monday morning.

Lufkin Schools Superintendent Roy Knight told The Daily News: “The only hope at this point in time to prevent our schools from looking like a 1940s classroom is if the Senate can bring some sense of equity back to school funding."
