Where is the Money?

Print Friendly

Disappearing ActThe Texas Education Service Centers Receive Millions of Dollars Each Year in Grants from TEA. 

This page give you an indication of just how much money is flowing into the 20 Texas Education Agencies with no indication that services being provided are having any positive effects on the Schools they Service.

Following contains charts showing grant money received from TEA by one ESC in Region 13. Know that this is just part of the money this agency receives. As with each of the 20 ESCs, ESC 13 also receive money from:

Sales of products, such as CSCOPE.

Fees  for education courses the ESCs develop (as they did CSCOPE) for teachers who have to earn so many professional development credits.

 Education courses that ESC 13 develop (as they did CSCOPE) to provide certification for teachers and administrators, principal and superintendents as well as school board members. Fees for these Teacher and Administrator courses are in the thousands of dollars. 

  • The ESCs create K-12 instructional materials that may or may not be credible.
  • This unapproved K-12 instruction material is sold to schools with superintendents and school board members certified by the ESCs.
  • Then teachers certified by the ESCs use the ESC developed materials to instruct students.
    This is a conflict of interest. The ESCs have a monopoly on the K-12 Texas Instruction Material because they have an unfair market advantage due to not having any overhead–fees for ESC products can be lower than any competitive vendor. 
  • Education Service Centers should provide services to schools, but are functioning tax free vendors using state employees and state buildings to run their business.

 What is happening with all this money? The ESCs are governing themselves. Why?
