It's election day tomorrow and while several propositions are on the ballots. So are seats on the HISD board.
Six of the nine seats on the Houston ISD Board of Education are up for grabs, but winners can't get too comfortable. They'll face the possibility of the state taking over.
Ten HISD schools have been on the TEA's "improvement required" list for four years. And if they don't get off that list by next August, the district can either close those schools or let the state replace the entire board of trustees.
On the Factor to talk about what’s at stake is someone who covers HISD for a living, Laura Isensee with NPR.
