Did Garza’s Tactic Work in Texas? — Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent Karen Garza, who has proposed a $2.5 billion budget for 2015  that features $96 million in proposed cuts and elimination of 731 county staff positions, has used the same budgeting tactic before. As superintendent in Lubbock, Tex., and in Houston, where she served as second-in-command of the state’s largest school district, Garza showed that reducing staff can lead to quick cost savings while giving Garza the ability to dangle higher salaries as she works to attract a new crop of teachers.
