Cy Fair ISD

Folks are talking about the Cy Fair ISD today.  It is the third largest school district in Texas. 45% of the student population is Latino, 21 % Anglo, 20% African American, 9% Asian American and 3% multi-racial. 

57% of the student population is economically disadvantaged and 35 elementary schools have a bilingual education component.

Cy Fair’s student population is diverse. Racism is at a new level these days in Texas. 

Day 4 of early voting is today in the H-Town City Council special election in District G. They need to pick up their mail ballot totals. Only 182 mail ballots have been sent out. Close to 2,700 voted by mail in District G in the 2019 election.

The only national news show I watch on Sunday morning is the one on CBS with Jane Pauley because they have interesting features. 

I also still watch “Today.”
