Agency History

The Texas Senate Committee on Education is a standing committee concerned with all aspects of education in public schools and with higher education in state colleges and universities in Texas. State agencies within the committee's jurisdiction include the State Board of Education, the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation. Chairmen of the Committee during the years represented in these records are: Senators Oscar Mauzy, 63rd-66th Legislatures, 1973-1979; W. E. "Pete" Snelson, 67th Legislature, 1981; Carl Parker, 68th-72nd Legislatures, 1983-1991; and Bill Ratliff, 73rd Legislature, 1993.

The Senate Committee on Education was at the center of public education reform and public education financing, engaged in such activities as doing research, holding hearings, and drafting legislation. Public school education reform was highlighted with the passage of House Bill 72 (68th Texas Legislature, 2nd Called Session) in the summer of 1984. This reform act was formulated by the Select Committee on Public Education, appointed by Governor Mark White and chaired by Dallas businessman Ross Perot. Senator Parker was a member of the Select Committee. HB 72 provided equalization formulas for state financial aid for public education, initiated competency testing for both entering and existing teachers, and set academic achievement as a priority in public education with the adoption of a no-pass/no-play rule prohibiting students scoring below 70 in any class from participating in sports and other extracurricular activities.

In addition to the Select Committee on Public Education, other special committees were created to study education reform issues. Chairman Parker and other Senate Committee on Education members served on these special education committees. The Select Committee on Higher Education (SCOHE) was established by House Concurrent Resolution 105 (69th Legislature, Regular Session) 1985, to make a comprehensive study of all issues and concerns relating to higher education in Texas, including curriculum requirements, projected needs for higher education programs, and faculty workloads/class size. The Select Committee on Education was created by Governor Bill Clements in 1988 to examine the educational system, public education financing, and student performance, and to make recommendations for improvements. House Concurrent Resolution 107 (70th Legislature) in 1987, created the Special Committee on Post-Secondary Medical, Dental, and Allied Health Education (SCOME). SCOME was to investigate the governance and role of each medical teaching institution, and the long-term manpower needs for physicians in Texas, and make recommendations for a cost-effective methodology to fund health-related education. Finally, in 1991, the Joint Select Committee on Higher Education, 72nd Legislature, made recommendations to improve quality, access, business management, and research opportunities at the state's higher education facilities.

The funding of Texas public school education was before the Texas Legislature throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s. The impetus for this concern was lawsuits filed in the Edgewood School District in San Antonio that challenged the state's reliance on property taxation for financing education, claiming that the system discriminates against property-poor school districts such as Edgewood. In 1990 a state district judge declared that Texas' method of financing education was unconstitutional. The Senate Committee on Education responded by assisting the 71st Legislature in drafting a variety of plans in an effort to come up with a constitutional school finance plan. One attempt was the so-called "Robin Hood" plan, taking funds from richer districts and redistributing money to poorer ones. This proposal was defeated by the voters at the polls. The 72nd Legislature subsequently passed a similar plan giving richer districts several options to pass funds to poorer districts. This plan was challenged in court as unconstitutional.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Senate Committee on Education is a standing committee concerned with all aspects of education in public schools and with higher education in state colleges and universities in Texas. Records are correspondence, memoranda, minutes, transcripts, magazine articles, journal articles, newsletters, reports, newspaper clippings, legislative bills, bill analyses, and lawsuits. They document public education reform and public education financing in Texas and date from 1972 to 1993, with the bulk from 1983 to 1992 when Senator Carl Parker was chairman of the Senate Committee on Education. The two dominant subjects in the committee's records are public education reform and public education financing. The other pressing issue found throughout these records is public education financing. Records are from the Senate Committee on Education and other special education committees including the Select Committee on Public Education (House Bill 72, 68th Texas Legislature, 2nd Called Session), the Select Committee on Higher Education (SCOHE), the Special Committee on Post-Secondary Medical, Dental, and Allied Health Education (SCOME), and the Joint Select Committee on Higher Education. Senator Carl Parker served on all of these special committees and most of the records from these special committees are Senator Parker's copies. Records of note from the Senate Committee on Education internal operations include minutes, meeting files, legislative bill files, and the correspondence of Chairman Carl Parker. Other records concern public education, higher education, and public school financing.

Organization of the Records

Restrictions on Access

Materials do not circulate, but may be used in the State Archives search room. Materials will be retrieved from and returned to storage areas by staff members.

Because of the possibility that portions of these records within each series fall under Public Information Act exceptions including, but not limited to: confidentiality of a memorandum of a communication of a resident with a member of the legislature (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 306.003); confidentiality of a communication of a citizen with a member of the legislature (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 306.004); confidentiality of communication of an assistant or employee of the Texas Legislative Council with a member of the legislature (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 323.017); and privacy (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.101), an archivist must review these records before they can be accessed for research. The records may be requested for research under the provisions of the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Chapter 552). The researcher may request an interview with an archivist or submit a request by mail (Texas State Library and Archives Commission, P. O. Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711), fax (512-463-5436), email (Dir_Lib@tsl.state.tx.us), or see our web page (http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/agency/customer/pia.html). Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information. If our review reveals information that may be excepted by the Public Information Act, we are obligated to seek an open records decision from the Attorney General on whether the records can be released. The Public Information Act allows the Archives ten working days after receiving a request to make this determination. The Attorney General has 45 working days to render a decision. Alternately, the Archives can inform you of the nature of the potentially excepted information and if you agree, that information can be redacted or removed and you can access the remainder of the records.

Restrictions on Use

Most records created by Texas state agencies are not copyrighted. State records also include materials received by, not created by, state agencies. Copyright remains with the creator. The researcher is responsible for complying with U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17 U.S.C.).

The Texas Senate Committee on Education is a standing committee concerned with all aspects of education in public schools and with higher education in state colleges and universities in Texas. Records document public education reform and public education financing in Texas and date from 1972 to 1992, with the bulk dating from 1983 to 1992. Types of records include correspondence, memos, reports, studies, legal briefs, legislative bills, and maps. Records categorized as public education files by the staff of the Senate Committee on Education are arranged into four groups: alphabetical by topic, reports, subject files, and Select Committee on Public Education. The distinction between alphabetical by topic and subject files is elusive. Both include files on a wide variety of education issues with public education reform and financing as the dominant topics. The subject files tend to be more recent but there is overlap with the alphabetical by topic group. Researchers should check both for topics of interest. The subject files are in random order. Senator Parker was a member of the Select Committee on Public Education that drafted the "no-pass, no-play" education reform package in 1984 known as House Bill 72; the Select Committee on Public Education files are from his service on that committee.
The records are organized into four groups: alphabetical by topic, reports, subject files, and Select Committee on Public Education.

The Texas Senate Committee on Education is a standing committee concerned with all aspects of education in public schools and with higher education in state colleges and universities in Texas. These records document higher education reform and financing in Texas and date from 1973 to 1992. Types of records include correspondence, minutes, meeting files, hearing testimony, legislative bills, magazine and newspaper articles, reports, studies, and speeches. The Senate Committee on Education records related to higher education are divided into five groups: budget, committees, reports and studies, chief clerk's research files, and subject files. Budget records relate to state appropriations to universities and colleges from 1985-1989, especially Lamar University within Senator Parker's district. The committees group includes records from three special committees created to study specific issues related to higher education. The three committees were the Select Committee on Higher Education (SCOHE); the Special Committee on Post-Secondary Medical, Dental, and Allied Health Education (SCOME); and the Joint Select Committee on Higher Education. Committee records include meeting files, hearing testimony, research files, and reports. There are also some copies of records from House Bill 72-Select Committee on Public Education interfiled with the records from the Select Committee on Higher Education (SCOHE). Education-related research files are distributed among the last three groups: reports and studies, chief clerk's research files, and subject files. Reports and studies are from a variety of sources including the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Carnegie Foundation, and the Southern Regional Education Board. The chief clerk's research files involve investigations of several state universities, academic skills testing, a faculty workload study, tuition at state universities, and teacher education. The subject files contain the bulk of the research files and the majority of the records in this series. The wide variety of topics considered by the Senate Committee on Education in the subject files under "higher education" include: the Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation and financial aid, student demographics, the availability of health insurance for college students, minority achievement in higher education, mergers of state universities in South Texas, faculty salaries and workloads, tuition, and response to the reports and studies from the various legislative and special committees that worked on higher education issues.
The records are organized into five groups: budget, committees, reports and studies, chief clerk's research files, and subject files.

The Texas Senate Committee on Education is a standing committee concerned with all aspects of education in public schools and with higher education in state colleges and universities in Texas. Records document public education reform and public education finance in Texas and date 1972-1992, bulk 1985-1991. Types of records include minutes, correspondence, plans, reports, speeches, survey forms, legal briefs, legislative bills, and bill analyses and are arranged in four groups: Governor's Task Force on Public Education records, school finance plans, survey of school superintendents, and subject files. Records from the Governor's Task Force on Public Education, 1989-1990, include the objectives, plans and final report. School finance plans include both Texas plans and those from other states. The Texas plans include legislation, such as SB 1 from the 71st Legislature (1989), and economic impact models. The survey of school superintendents was performed by the Senate Committee on Education in 1992 to solicit feedback and suggestions concerning school financing from all Texas school superintendents. Subject files include reports, speeches, research files, seminar papers, and copies of the Edgewood v. Kirby case that declared the Texas school financing system unconstitutional. Records relating to public school financing can also be found throughout the Public Education files and Higher Education records series.
The records are organized into four groups: Governor's Task Force on Public Education, school finance plans, survey of school superintendents, and subject files.
