Our Work

The State of Public School Education

Almost 30% of public school students attend a school rated C, D or F

Only 44% of third graders are reading on or above grade level 

80,000 HISD students attend a struggling school – that’s more kids than seats in NRG Stadium

94% of students in Houston attend a public school – that’s about 500,000 kids
