NEW TEXAS WATCHDOGGER LYNN WALSH reports on HISD chief Terry Grier’s “state of the schools” talk, and the $80 price tag for what was described as a fundraiser.

Here’s our quaint notion: “State Of” speeches by leaders of public entities ought to be priced affordably (or free!). If it costs more than a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo show, it’s not priced affordably. And if a public organization wants to have a high-priced fundraiser, it should be an “extra” sort of presentation, not a “state of” presentation.
