Quote: Rick Perry Defends Texas Schools

Quotes2 I think the reductions that we made were thoughtful reductions, and the fact of the matter is, Texas has made great progress in the 10 years that I've been governor, from the standpoint of our graduation rates now are up to 84 percent, higher than they've been during any period of time before that. - Texas Governor Rick Perry in last night's Republican presidential debate

Since Texas notoriously juked the states to falsely tout its supposedly improved "miracle" graduation rates when Bush was governor, doesn't "fool me twice shame on me" kick in here?

Sorry, juked the STATS.
