History

Houston ISD was established in the 1920s, after the Texas Legislature voted to separate school and municipal governments. Houston ISD replaced the Harrisburg School District.

Houston ISD was desegregated by 1970. Some Hispanics felt they were being discriminated against when they were being put with only African Americans as part of the desegregation plan, so many took their children out of the schools and put them in "huelgas," or protest schools, until a ruling in 1973 satisfied their demands. 1970 (MCMLXX) was a common year starting on Thursday. ...  Countries where Spanish has official status. ...

New district organization

Prior to Summer 2005, HISD had 13 administrative districts [6].


Originally, the number of districts were to be cut to three [7], but HISD decided on cutting the number to five in fall 2005 [8].


New administration building

Houston ISD's administration building from July 1970 to March 2006 was the Hattie Mae White Administration Building (located at 3830 Richmond Avenue), and was labelled the "Taj Mahal" due to the confusing layout of the complex. The 201,150 square foot complex cost six million United States dollars. The building had tropical indoor atriums, causing critics to criticize the spending priorities of the district. When the district considered cutting a popular kindergarten program for financial reasons, taxpayers voted many board members out of office.

Enrollment figures

The fall enrollment for the 2006-2007 school year (203,163) had 7,000 fewer students than the 2005-2006 student enrollment (210,202), resulting in a more than 3% loss; the 2006-2007 enrollment was a 2.5% decrease from the fall 2004-2005 enrollment (208,454) [10].


The West and Central regions lost the most students, with a combined 4,400 student loss.


Bilingual education and magnet and Vanguard schools

HISD is highly regarded for the bilingual education of its predominantly Hispanic student body, including recruiting about 330 teachers from Mexico, Spain, Central and South America, Puerto Rico, China, and the Philippines from 1998 to 2007 [11] [12] ("Of great import: bilingual teachers" Houston Chronicle). Bilingual education involves teaching all subjects in school through two different languages - in the United States, instruction occurs in English and a minority language, such as Spanish or Chinese, with varying amounts of each language used in accordance with the program model. ...  Countries where Spanish has official status. ...

HISD's magnet (Performing Arts, Science, Health Professions, Law Enforcement, etc) high schools are considered a model for other urban school districts as a way to provide a high quality education and keep top performing students in the inner city from fleeing to private schools or exurban school districts. Magnet schools are popular with parents and students that wish to escape low-performing schools and school violence ref>Chronicle article</ref>("Many transfer options are available," Houston Chronicle). The members of the administration of schools losing students to higher-performing campuses, such as Bill Miller of Yates High School, complained about the effects ("Transfer policy hinders schools," Houston Chronicle)]. Private schools, or independent schools, are schools not administered by local, state, or national government, which retain the right to select their student body and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students tuition rather than with public (state) funds. ... The expression exurb (for extra-urban) was coined in the 1950s, by Auguste Comte Spectorsky in his book The Exurbanites, to describe the ring of prosperous rural communities beyond the suburbs that, due to availability via the new high-speed limited-access highways, were becoming dormitory communities for an urban...

There are 55 elementary magnet schools,[13] 30 magnet middle schools,[14] and 27 magnet high schools.[15] Some magnet schools are mixed comprehensive and magnet programs, while others are solidly magnet and do not admit any "neighborhood" students.


Controversies

Reporting of school violence

A 2003 The New York Times report which alleged that HISD did not report school violence to the police created controversy in the community as teachers, students, and parents expressed concern about the district's downplaying of campus violence. HISD officials held a news conference after the publication of the story. During the conference, HISD asserted that The New York Times published the story in an attempt to discredit the Bush administration's new accountability standards for school districts nationwide, which were partly modeled after HISD's system [16]. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

School performance

A 2003 state audit of HISD's performance caused more controversy. One of the district's most publicized accomplishments during the Paige era was a dramatic reduction in dropout rates. When 16 secondary schools, including Sharpstown High School, were audited, it was found that most of the students who left school from those schools in 2000-2001 should have been counted as dropouts, but were not. It was found that the administrators at Sharpstown deliberately changed the dropout rate at the school. The Sharpstown controversy resulted in a recommendation to label the entire HISD as "unacceptable." Former Sharpstown Assistant Principal Robert Kimball, found by an external investigator to have been involved in the false reporting, asserts that HISD coerced administrators at many schools to lie on dropout rates. HISD asserts that the fraud is only contained to Sharpstown, and that the false statistics at other schools were caused by confusion related to the state's system of tracking students who leave school. To improve data quality and regain its accountability rating, HISD revamped its record-keeping training for school officials and sent teams of auditors into schools to check records. The superintendent met frequently with principals to press for improved data quality, and a districtwide data-integrity team monitored results.

Wright v. Houston I.S.D. (District Court) (2736 words)
The trial court found unconvincing the students' argument that the school district was violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, and the court dismissed the students' complaint.
Students of Houston Independent School District sued for an injunction to block the district from teaching the theory of evolution as part of its curriculum and from adopting textbooks that taught evolution, on the ground that these actions inhibited them in the free exercise of their religion and constituted an establishment of religion.
Plaintiffs' principal contention is that the teaching of the theory of evolution in the Houston Independent School District inhibits Plaintiffs in the free exercise of their religion and constitutes an "establishment of religion," in contravention of the first amendment to the United States Constitution.
