[en español aqui] Here's a 10-slide story that summarizes how Texas law and the Texas Education Code were used to take over Houston ISD, the largest school district in Texas. The state takeover of Houston ISD is not really about helping our schoolchildren at all. It is part of a broader attack on public education occurring across the country.
In Texas, the takeover has been orchestrated by the Republican-led Texas state government working hand in hand with individuals on both sides of the aisle. Their harmful reform agenda promotes using teacher and school accountability almost entirely based on high-stakes testing at the expense of our children, teachers and schools.
