Now-former HISD Superintendent Abe Saavedra grades his performance. His answers are sadly too short to most of the questions. I’d really have liked to have heard more on this:
Q: If you could wave a magic wand and unilaterally change any HISD policy without school board approval, what would it be?
A: It would center around the issue of governance. I would reorganize the school board to where five of the seats would be single-member districts and four would be at-large. I don’t believe single-member districts are good for the system.
Why do you think single-member districts are bad for the system? I’m not really sure I could say. Anyone want to speculate?
