Houston Independent School District needs an independent voice to ensure wise use of resources

    I dont think being endorsed by the Teachers Union with 10K campaign contribution makes Ms. Stipeche an independent minded trustee. What bothers me more is that she ran an unsuccessful campaign for judge earlier this year. Now she is attempting again with the school board elections. At least leave children out of your politcal career ambitions. http://www.stipecheforjudge.com/

    Hello Anyone,
    You have seven votes going the same way my friend. Any vote going the other at least ensures discussions before they make STUPID DECISIONS LIKE THIS ONE. What do you think teachers doing the work in that school think--or the students whose parents are making thirty thousand a year think. Money motivates, but not if you are giving big bucks only to people outside the classroom.

    The Houston Chronicle endorsed Judith Cruz after screening all of the candidates. You are endorsing Juliet, and I am curious if you screened both of them. How do you know Judith is not an independent thinker? Perhaps you are not aware that Judith Cruz has been in the classroom for 8 YEARS and would be well aware of what her collegues think about the issues.

    Yes, I have seen Ms. Cruz speak and she does have some inside knowledge of schools. But these candidates usually vote the way the coalition that puts them into office wants them to. All four of the candidates supported by the Arnold Foundations were also endorsed by the Houston Chronicle, and all four backed doubling bonuses for administrators. The bonuses are more than most parents at those schools make a year. HISD needs better vetting of its policies. Ms. Stipeche has a lot of energy, and research and advocacy skills as a lawyer, and she will not be afraid to challenge bad proposals.
