A better board for better schools.
A native Houstonian from Sharpstown, Lee "Mac" Walker was the first person in his family to graduate from high school. Growing up in a low-income, mostly single-parent household, destabilized by alcoholism, drug addictions, crime, and constantly moving from one place to another, he faced numerous challenges. However, the great teachers and coaches in his life kept him on track. It’s time to get HISD back on track too, so that its 200,000 students have the same opportunities he had.
