WHERE DO YOU STAND ON THE BOND PROPOSAL?
It was announced Sunday the Houston Independent School District secured an important endorsement for its proposed $805 million bond issue from The League of United Latin American Citizens. They held a news conference at the almost 60-year-old Berry Elementary School to announce its support for the bond proposal.
This comes as African-American leaders and the NAACP have said they will fight the bond proposal saying it doesn’t provide for much-needed new schools in predominantly black neighborhoods.
Is this the beginning of a public parting of ways between LULAC and the NAACP because each group is concerned about its own community? Where do you think this will lead and is it a surprise the two civil rights organizations are going down two separate paths? Leave your comments on the Insite!
