One more endorsement for the HISD bond referencum.
The Houston Area Urban League, an advocacy group for blacks, announced today its endorsement of the Houston school district’s $805 million bond proposal.
The league’s support — which comes two weeks before Election Day — contrasts with the position of the city’s other large civil-rights group, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
“The Houston Area Urban League strongly believes in bettering our children’s future through education,” Sylvia Brooks, the urban league’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “In order to do this, we must ensure that our children have the appropriate educational facilities.”
A bit late in the game, as early voting is on Day Five, but better late than never.
