MISD Board Fights for Equity

MISD has talked about equity in school finance for many years. However, under the current system, our district is in the bottom 20% when districts are ranked highest per student funding to lowest. That means some districts within close proximity to us may receive $1000 or more per student than MISD does. If all districts must meet the same high student expectation, which we are, we must have equitable resources for our students. This inequity is what led our Board to the decision to join the Texas Taxpayer and Student Equity Coalition lawsuit against the state of Texas. Please check out our website for more information on how school finance works in Texas.
