RELEASE: Harris County Democratic Party Statement on
TEA’s Intent to Replace District’s Elected School Board

Houston, TX - The Harris County Democratic Party strongly disagrees with the Texas Education Association's decision to appoint a board of managers to replace the duly elected board of the Houston Independent School District. 

The parents and students of HISD deserve to be represented by the people they elect thru the democratic process and resolve problems within that body through the democratic process.

Our communities have time and again proven when given the opportunity and resources that they are more than capable of articulating their needs and mapping their path to improvement for their schools.  

We stand committed to fighting alongside community leaders who believe that quality public education is the right of all children, and voters have the right to decide what is best for themselves.
