Today, Dr. Catherine Clark, the Associate Executive Director for Governance Services at the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), reveals how her organization is working to promote healthier school funding in the State of Texas with a proposal for revamping the school finance environment to insure that every Texas school district receives an equitable share of state dollars. She also answers a question posed to her by Ray Freeman, today’s broadcast host, about the move by some to adopt a statewide property tax. Ms. Clark feels that the proposal will not blend with TASB’s attempt to have the legislature pass a finance plan that is both equitable and educationally sound.
As the Associate Executive Director for Governance Services, Ms. Clark is responsible for legal services, policy service, consulting services for school districts, school board member training programs, and online governance tools for board members. Prior to becoming associate executive director at TASB, Catherine served as director for research and policy at the Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Before she joined the Dana Center she was director of the Texas Center for Educational Research in Austin, Texas, from 1991 to 2000.
