The authors consider how race plays a role in the funding of Texas public school districts. They explore the legal implications that  come from evidence of a discriminatory funding system, specifically in light of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.  Population-level data containing information on the funding and racial composition of all Texas public school districts is explored. We are pleased to present The Texas Miracle: Racial Discrimination Alive and Well Sixty Years after Brown.
