Three Local Legislators Talk to Texas Tribune About What Needs to Go From Public Ed Budget

Texas Trib's editor Evan Smith just posted his lengthy chitchat with three state House first-termers -- all Republicans, all from 'round these parts (Dallas's Stefani Carter, Mesquite's Cindy Burkett and Grand Prairie's Rodney Anderson). The full sitdown runs a little more than 37 minutes, but Smith has trimmed out a few excerpts -- including this 6:36 clip involving cuts to public education. Anderson and Carter in particular point to "a lot of inefficiencies on the administrative side." Says Carter, instead of talking about laying off teachers: "Why aren't we talking about superintendents? Why aren't we talking about administrators?"
