Larry Taylor in Hitchcock

Chad Cantella, left, David Jacobson, Jennifer Bergland and state Sen. Larry Taylor talk after Hitchcock Independent School District receives a grant for technology on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019. Taylor has been working on reforming education funding in the Texas Legislature.

The Daily News on occasion has chided and even lambasted Texas lawmakers for the dismal state of school financing and public education in general, and on those occasions has been justified.

But something happened last week in Hitchcock that deserves attention and praise.

Senator Taylor is dedicated to doing what is right and best for all. He is tireless in his endeavors and is the best we could wish for to get this mess corrected.
