Former Bush Education Official: Texas Schools Should Brace Themselves if Perry Runs AUDIO

Terry Abbott

A former high-ranking education official in the Bush Administration says that if Gov. Perry decides to run for the White House, Texas school districts can expect an onslaught of scrutiny from the national media. 

“It’ll be Katy, bar the door,” said Terry Abbott, who served as Chief of Staff in the Department of Eduction under President George W. Bush.  He says that while there are plenty of problems in Texas schools, the level of scrutiny they were subjected to when Mr. Bush ran for re-election in 2004 was unfair.

Abbott warns that any school district that has real problems had better “get its house in order now.”
