Of School Cost

AUSTIN. TEXAS, July 21—Lo-
cal financial support of Texas pub-
lic schools has kept pace with the
greatly increased state aid during
the last decade.
A comprehensive state-wide stu-
dy has just been released by the
Texas State Teachers Association
in cooperation with the State De-
partment of Education. It dis-
closes that through increased pro-
perty valuation or hikes in taxes
most local school districts are do-
ing their share in paying the cost
of their schools.
During the 1946-47 school year,
the latest for which complete fig-
ures are available, the study dis-
closed that the state paid 53 per
cent of the cost of education and
the local districts 47 per cent.
These approximate tigures hold
true for each of the last ten years
despite the fact the constitution
of Texas provides that the state
shall pay for two-thirds of the
costs of the schools.
Most schools have nine-month
terms. The constitution sets out
that "the state shall maintain and
support schools for not less tha/i
Expenditures for public schools
have increased from a total of
$76,706,149 in 1935-36 to $137,609,-
088 during 1946-47. The local sup-
port in 1935-36 was 51 per cent to
49 for the state. The average sal-
ary of teachers in the mid thir-
ties was approximately $1100.
Shortly after the depression
years Texans became conscious of
the deficiences in their school sys-
tem, and set about to give it more
financial aid, the report noted.
As the legislature hiked appro-
priations for the schools, the local
districts also increased their levies
and property valuations.
During the 1941-42 school year
local districts bore 51 per cent of
the cost of education. They col-
lected taxes amounting to $47,-
375,861. The state supplied $44,-
Both state and local support
jumped in 1946-47. The legisla-
ture in 1945 increased the max-
imum tax rate that may be voted
by common and independent school
districts to $1.50.
The result was that the dis-
tricts took advantage of it. Local
tax support in 1946-47 totaled
$64,116,512. The state supplied
The larger districts, especially,
increased their levies. During the
last school year more than 50 per
cent of all children of scholastic
age in independent school districts
resided in districts which now levy
a tax rate above $1.00.

JUDGE JOHN A. RAWLINS
if N it recorded May 9, 1945, in 188 S.W. Reporter 2d serial, page 276, that
James P. Hart, opponent of Judge Rawlins, was one of the attorneys for the labor
unions in their unsuccessful and ill-advised attempt to enjoin the State Officials from
enforcing the Texas law regulating labor unions, which was passed with the view
of protecting public interest.
if The Appellate Court, in upholding the law forbidding the unions from collecting
work permit fees from non-union employees, reorganized the policy expressed by
the Legislature in the preamble to the Act: "The right to work is the right to live."
if Judge John Rawlins is under no obligation to either labor or capital. He is
now completing 20 years of service as a State Trial Judge. He is a family man,
a World War veteran, and a church worker. He has the endorsement of the Dallas
Bar Association and is interested oniy in administering the law fairly and impartially
in the interest of the public at laige. He is a graduate of Texas University and
