[9.24.14 – FROM DONNA GARNER -- I am appalled that Texas Commissioner of Education Michael Williams would be naïve enough to think that we in Texas can take federal funds from the U. S.

Frankly, Comm. Williams’ statements (below) sound very similar to the ones used to convince people that the Stimulus Package and Race to the…
