Many comments regarding property VALUE but never the 9-12 tax authorities RATE particularly HISD's rate RATE X VALUE = property tax DUE. Everyone hammers hcad, deservedly so, who are in charge of Value ONLY. No onme hammers hisd tax rate which results in more tax revenue from most property owners than all other tax authorities combined. hisd's Rate is ALLEGEDLY necessary to meet BUDGET REQUIREMENTS. hisd budget requirement are a RESULT of administrators DELIBERATE INEFFICIENCY and GAMING OF THE SYSTEM resulting in unnecessarily EXORBITANT budget and RATE. Unfortunately for Houston children and property owners Trustees are answerable to the Administrators in practice not the law. Texas Constitution requires public education to be "EFFICIENT". hisd administrators refuse to be efficient with VOLUNTARY assistance of hisd TRUSTTES thereby ROBBING CHILDREN and tax payers of RIGHTS and MONEY. Administrator's motive for this? Easy. Personal gain. Failure to meet ACADEMIC goals IS ALWAYS laid at the feet of TEACHERS[quality] and LEGISLATURE[money] by administrators. Administrators CREATE inefficiency by REFUSING to adopt multi-disciplinary approach necessary for effective and efficient classroom environment Multi-disciplinary approach in the classroom is as effective as in health care. Administrator's refuse to adopt the disciplines of physiology and sociology disciplines necessary for efficient classroom instruction. Administrator's PRIME DIRECTIVE is to avoid RESPONSIBILITY for academic failure subsequent to loss of income and benefits. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR CHILDREN and TEACHERS at the expense of poor little administrator ???
Hi all, I'm thinking about returning to Houston after 10 years in NYC. I'd like to leave my current career and get my MUP. The only accredited school in Houston appears to be TSU. Does anyone know anything about this program? I'm aware of TSU's less than stellar reputation, but since this is the only program in Houston, does it hold some weight? Additionally, is there anyone who has a graduate degree from another school in Houston that is now practicing Urban Planning? Any insight is appreciated.
I was born on June 13, 1972 in Houston Texas and I was born and raised in Houston Texas. I went to Judd M. Lewis Elementary School or is it Judd Lewis Elementary School during my childhood. I am wondering if any of my school mates are around? I am curious in learning what has happened to them. What happened to Brandon Carpenter, Eric (do not know his last name?)(I know that he had a sister named Nova)(he was beaten up so badly that he got his leg broken, I believe?), and Clayton (I believe his last name was Cox?)? I used to have a friend name Dawn (forgot her last name?) too? What has happened to all the people that attended school with me during my years at Judd M. Lewis Elementary or is it Judd Lewis Elementary? My friend Clayton traveled to Florida with my grandmother (my grandmother adopted me) and my two aunts and we went to Disney World when we were going to Judd Lewis Elementary School or is it Judd M. Lewis Elementary School. My friend Eric wanted my grandmother to adopt him always and he also gave me a kiss on my cheek on my Birthday (we were at Pipe Organ Pizza). ~Juliet Shohreh Nour~
