Cornyn Responds to Department of Education’s Denial of $830 Million for Texas Teachers and Schools

Today, I issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Education announced it has denied an application from Texas Education Commissioner Robert Scott for $830 million from the Ed Jobs Fund:
As Texas children and teachers work their way into the school year, it’s unacceptable that they won’t have access to the full range of federal resources available to them. It is unfathomable why Texas Democrats would unanimously support the politically charged Doggett Amendment, which unfairly hamstrings the efforts of educators statewide and sends critical Texas taxpayer dollars that should be used in Texas classrooms to schools in California and New York.
