Tell the Mayor No Hostile Corporate Takeover of HISD

December 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Come to City Council to demand the city to BACK OFF of a corporate takeover plan for four black and brown HISD schools.

Sign up to speak for Tuesday afternoon Public Session by calling the City Secretary’s office at 832.393.1100, sending an email to [email protected] or coming by the office on the public level of the City Hall Annex, 900 Bagby, Houston 77002 by 1:30 p.m. that Tuesday.

If you cannot attend, contact your district rep, the five at large reps, and the mayor’s office (contact info at the bottom of this description).

The City of Houston has established a “nonprofit” astroturfed special interest group with the doublespeak title “Coalition for Educational Excellence and Equity in Houston”, designed to mask the hostile corporate takeover over HISD schools. The registered agent is Juliet Stipeche, the Mayor’s point person on education. The board comprises three wealthy right wing benefactors: Trini Mendenhall, Corbin Robertson Jr, and Stephanie Paige.

Paige is the education contact for ALEC, a right wing takeover group that disguises the self interest of the wealthy as the advancement of society through philanthropy. ALEC has a deep, well-documented public track record of establishing beachheads in education and other public sectors, dividing and conquering communities, and selling them for parts.

Robertson is a billionaire coal magnate known for expansive dark money efforts undermining climate research through fake advocacy to protect their bottom line by papering over steep environmental damage that disproportionately impacted poor communities in the United States.

These people have NO BUSINESS being anywhere NEAR anything that is supposed to be for the public good, much less in control of the future of our children.
