What is recapture?
Recapture is the provision of the Texas school finance system through which property wealth in the state’s wealthiest districts is used to help support educational equity for all children across the whole system.
Why do the children of Texas need recapture?
Recapture enables 90 percent of all students to have a higher level of education than they would otherwise have, due to which neighborhood they live in. Recapture also ensures that we do not have a system where a few children have superior education while the majority receive inferior education.
