90% of Texans are a fan of Texas, and the results are unsurprising. Many non-Texans are told horror stories about how terrible Texas is, but living here is fantastic :)

The rest of the country should follow the examples of Texas. They usually have the right idea. Texas told the feds to stick their money for education up their ass and continued to do things the Texas way. They already knew NCLB was a crock.
