Real Education For African Americans In Dallas, Texas

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Monday, July 23, 2007

THE QUEST AND DIRECTION FOR THE EDUCATION OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN DALLAS, TEXAS IS FOCUSED ON THE SOUTHERN SECTOR. THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS, PAUL QUINN COLLEGE, AND THE DALLAS COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICTS CEDAR VALLEY, MOUNTAINVIEW, BILL J. PRIEST, LEAD THE WAY IN EDUCATIONAL ASSETS.

THE DEATH OF THE WILMER-HUTCHINS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE LOW RATINGS OF SOME SOUTHERN SECTOR DISD CAMPUSES BRINGS ABOUT A NEED AND CALL FOR ACTION FROM THE RESIDENTS OF THE SOUTHERN SECTOR. THE NEEDED ACTION ITEMS INCLUDE BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO:

1. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A PETITION DRIVE TO GAIN THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF SIGNATURES TO PLACE ON THE NEXT GENERAL MARKET ELECTION THE FORMATION OF THE SOUTHERN DALLAS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT AND SCHOOL BOARD TO INCLUDE THE AREA OF THE FORMER WILMER-HUTCHINS.

2. PETITION THE TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY FOR ACCREDITATION ONCE THE FORMATION OF A NEW SCHOOL DISTRICT IS APPROVED BY THE VOTE AND WILL OF THE PEOPLE, DIVIDE THE DISD ASSETS AND REVENUE.

3. THE NEW SCHOOL BOARD THEN SELECTS SUPERINTENDENT FOR THE NEW SCHOOL DISTRICT.

4. MANY NEW EXCITING PROGRAMS AND OTHER OPPORTUNITIES.

    Robinson’s not going to accomplish his goal. DISD does not want to give up the territory with the Union Pacific Terminal (i. e. tax base), and the TEA has no reason to split DISD.
