In a letter sent Wednesday from the TEA to HISD interim superintendent Dr. Grenita Lathan and board president Diana Davila, the state informed district leaders it would appoint a board of managers and a superintendent. The move comes after years of what the state considers dysfunction and a failure to properly educated all children. Gov. Greg Abbott released the following statement about HISD:"A quality education can make all the difference in a child's life, and our school districts have a responsibility to deliver the best possible education to every Texas child. Houston ISD has failed to meet that responsibility and students across the district have paid the price.”
