Perry urges educational programs
AUSTIN (AP) Gov. Rick Perry warned legislators Wednesday not to commit to new programs that one day
could be unaffordable, though he urged more spending
for college and university students. “Let us begin the work of tomorrow in this house today, and let us
begin by improving higher education,” Perry said in his “State
of the State” speech at the Texas Capitol. Before a joint session of the Texas Senate and House, Perry also
advocated plans to improve the math skills of younger
students and to help combat a teacher shortage.
