The 51 million students in America’s schools will be the last generation of children before the skills gap is locked in for the next 30 years. The statement is a prediction and sounds alarmist, but the evidence is mounting and the trendlines are becoming more clear.
As part of his new blog series, Superintendent Mike Miles explains what this means for public education. Read the full post here.
Superintendent Miles plans to publish a post every two weeks to share his thoughts on these topics and others as HISD urgently works to prepare students for a Year 2035 workplace and world.
HISD opened its first of seven Sunrise Centers in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the West Orem YMCA on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Together with community partners, these centers will help support students outside the classroom and connect families with local services and resources.
Roughly 2,000 educators filled NRG Center Wednesday, Aug. 16, for Houston Independent School District’s inaugural convocation. Thousands more participated via satellite from campuses around the district, elevating the energy as teachers, principals, and some students showed their school pride with matching shirts, chants, and infectious excitement for the new school year.
Superintendent of the Houston Independent School District, F. Mike Miles, announced the initial members of the HISD leadership team. The team brings together veteran HISD leaders with the expertise and vision of some of Texas’ most exceptional education talent. These appointments are effective immediately, and just the first in a series of leadership appointments that will be made in the coming weeks.
