AUSTIN – The following is a statement by Gov. Rick Perry regarding the education reform proposal put forward today by Speaker Tom Craddick and Rep. Kent Grusendorf, chairman of the House Public Education Committee:

"I applaud Speaker Craddick, Chairman Grusendorf, and the leadership of the House for not only focusing on improving funding for our schools, but improving performance, too.
