The Houston Independent School District was late paying 2000 employees earlier this week.
Though there is nothing "independent" about the district. The district is occupied by our far-right state government.
Who can be held accountable for the failure to pay employees on time? Who can be held accountable for anything that takes place at HISD?
HISD is run by the state. The state has appointed a superintendent and a board of managers who all serve at the whim of the state.
Houston voters have lost an elected school board in what just 60 years ago was a Jim Crow city.
When things go wrong at HISD, it is unlikely Greg Abbott will be of much help.
The work of protecting and expanding democracy in Houston and Harris County is up to each of us as rank & file citizens.
This work is the mission of the Houston Democracy Project. Please support the effort.
