We want
All Students
to achieve their dreams

The HISD Board promised to put our children first but they never keep their word. The American Dream is supposed to take root in our classrooms, but it can’t in Houston. While the HISD Board of Trustees fight amongst themselves, more and more of our children pay the price. Year after year, thousands of our children are trapped in failing schools, and we get excuses, not leadership. Sign our petition, ask the TEA to remove the HISD Board so we can put our children first.

Houston for Tomorrow will identify the challenges and opportunities our City will face and the best options and outcomes needed to make meaningful change.

Houston needs a strong workforce. We have some of the best teachers in the world, and children and families hungry to succeed. What we need is a professionally run school system capable of training our next generation of thinkers, leaders, and workers.

Why Support Change

Why Support Change

Under Texas law, if any school district has even a single school which receives a substandard ranking for five consecutive years, the Texas Education Agency must remove the elected Board and place the school district under state control to reform management and leadership practices.

TEA announced the rankings for every school and school district on August 15th, and Wheatley High School in HISD received a substandard grade for the fifth year in a row, potentially triggering a leadership change for HISD. Houston For Tomorrow is leading the public call for change because we can’t wait any longer to help our children.
