Dear Comptroller Strayhorn:
Ann Holdsworth did a wonderful job with the Destination Education article in your September/October issue of Fiscal Notes. We appreciate the great job she did spotlighting the TexasEducationVacation.com Web site and the value it can offer to teachers, parents (grandparents) and of course the students themselves. The site is getting some 2000-plus visitors per day and we are planning to add the teacher portal and curriculum-specific information as soon as possible.
It is a win for everyone when the students in Texas get a chance to explore some of the wonderful assets and resources that our state has to offer and then come away with a new appreciation of our history, culture, natural assets and science applications of all kinds. Thanks for helping get the word out.
