Excellent guest column by Ms. Zahrah Ektefaei affirming the often unknown and untold benefits of having an Independent School District (ISD) education foundation. What deserves highlighting and underscoring, is that out of the 8 Galveston County ISDs, 7 ISDs have similar education foundatio…

It was great to read the opinion of the developer and a most learned professional regarding the current proposals versus his original plan. Dr. Bill Merrell is the best authority on this critical subject and design. Paraphrasing one of former President George H. W. Bush (RIP) quotes: I’m w…

Somehow the ensuing discussion reminded me of one of former President George H. W. Bush (QEPD/RIP): "We don't want an America that is closed to the world. What we want is a world that is open to America." Just my thought.

I think it is tine to ask for some shared accountability; were all these projects done, and if so how effective they were - were they even completed as presented to the voters?. Some seem to be in discussion now. Just consider: The Galveston County voters approved three propositions on the…

Mr. Forsythe's words: "Immigration reform can not be a Republican, Democrat thing, The only way it will be fixed is when we get leadership at the top, that bridge the two." Too true! It should be that simple; ditto for the various other significant issues we all face!

This Forum is a great example. We will continue to debate without achieving any effective change, action or results. The same path Texas education finance reform will follow. Just my thoughts.
