San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez case. Texas public primary and secondary schools rely on local property taxes for supplemental income. These schools are designed to establish a minimum education threshold at each school. The San Antonio District in the representation of families residing in poor districts challenged this funding scheme by arguing that students were disadvantaged because their schools lacked the property used by other districts, and academic programs receiving government funding should favor all students equally. Having already talked the facts of the San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez, I would like to discuss how this has been another topic of much attention within the Department of Education of different districts.
The Yuma Territorial Prison opened in 1875, but the first prisoners were not moved to the prison, in till 1876. Over three thousand prisoners were housed during the thirty-three years the prison was operational.

Inequalities are also one of the key features of the PC relationship and shapes it into a major source of exploitation (Soctt & Marshall, 2009). The literature found the existence of inequalities between the patrons and clients’ relationship (Roniger, 1983,1984 & 2015; Scott, 1972a, 1972b; Stein, 1984; Wolf, 2001; Galt, 1973; Nicollas, 1974; Foster, 1963; Wallace-Hadril, 1989). The historical societies accepted the ascriptive hereditary values and inequalities as parts of their social structures. Roniger (2015) argues that the PC relations flourish in societies “where markets are no longer controlled through primordial units and allow for an open flow of resources and opportunities for mobility” (p.605). Other researchers note that the PC relations
Schools are just like jobs. The boss expects the workers to stay on task and do their work well. Teachers want students to work hard and also do their work with effort. If schools really want students to succeed, shouldn’t they be paid? Paying students motivate them to work hard to learn the criteria.

Officially, she is the second woman to hold the title of governor in the state of Texas. However, Dorothy Ann Willis Richards is regarded by many as the first woman who earn the election for Texas's top office of governor. Thanks to many years of volunteering in numerous gubernatorial campaigns, because she was the first woman to become Travis County commissioner twice, and since she was also the first woman to serve as state treasurer, the 45th Governor of Texas earned her title. For these reasons and many more, Ann Richardson, as she was better known, won the race 1990 gubernatorial race against Clayton Williams, fair and square. Unlike former governor Miriam "Ma" Ferguson, who is often disregarded as the stand in for impeached governor James "Pa" Ferguson, Mrs. Richardson dedicated many years of her life to the local and state government, prior to her race for governor (Brandeis University).
Teacher tenure is job protection for teachers who have been employed as a teacher for one or more years depending on the state. Originally tenure was made to help low-income schools to attract, and keep, good teachers (“Should Teachers Get Tenure”) but it also protects teachers from being fired for political or personal reasons. It also prevents school districts from firing experienced teachers to replace them with less expensive teachers. The crucial issue with teacher tenure is that it is offered to a teacher after only one or so years and requires little additional effort afterwards. Once tenure is given to a teacher there are very brief and rare followups to ensure that the teacher still qualifies for tenure.
