Young Professionals for Better Schools is a diverse group of Houstonians supporting the HISD Bond which is dedicated to a plan to rebuild or renovate 38 of the city’s oldest schools, including 28 high schools, and improve safety and technology at campuses city-wide. Young Professionals for Better Schools will work hard to build support for the HISD Bond in November, the first step in transforming Houston by rebuilding our schools.
