Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams says public schools are making the most of the money available after lawmakers cut $5.4 billion from classrooms two years ago.

Williams didn’t use his first appearance before state budget-writers to press the Texas Legislature to restore funding.

Budget bills introduced last week fund enrollment growth but don’t reverse deep spending cuts to school districts, which have sued the state over funding.

Williams says the “prudent course of action” is to wait for the court’s decision before talking about restoring dollars.
