District response to Texas Supreme Court school finance ruling

The Houston ISD is very disappointed in today’s decision but, we remain committed to working with the Texas Legislature on a long-term fix for an outdated state school finance system. Today, the Texas Supreme Court declared the school finance system is “constitutional.”  The Court’s ruling affirmed that the current system needs to be revamped, but the Court also said the system is meeting the “minimum requirements” of educating students.  Minimum funding requirements are in direct contrast to the high standards Houston ISD and the state set for our students.
