Good Reason Houston leads a citywide effort to improve public school quality, as measured by the number of high-quality public school seats available to Houston students and families. We do this by working closely with school districts and the community to turn around low-performing schools, create new, high-quality schools, support school districts to run better, and shape public opinion about what’s possible for all kids.
Our vision requires a great public school in every neighborhood,
but this is not Houston’s current reality. 514,000 students attend school in Houston, but every morning, 265,000 of them walk into
a struggling school. We know school quality matters for students and their futures, which is why we are on a mission to increase
the number of students learning in great public schools.
