TMO Parent Leaders Protest Rezoning – Succeed in Delaying Board Vote

TMO leaders and parents of children attending Lyons Elementary held a pre-board meeting press conference to detail their concerns about the latest HISD proposal to rezone elementary schools.  Rosa Rivera argued that a plan to shift new students to nearby elementary schools would negatively impact the education of her children as the nearby schools are not as high quality as Lyons.  ”Before they start to do all these movements, I would like HISD to improve the schools.”

Trustees decided to postpone the vote.
