As is documented in posts during March 2014, a gathering of wealthy donors has funded an attempt to take control over the Dallas Independent School District away from the parents in DISD. The best way to fight such an attempt is to form a Parent Rule Coalition to fight the so-called "home rule" efforts to take over control of DISD by some wealthy out of district residents.
This page will attempt to collect information about this battle as it evolves. The above link has connections to most of the data to date. You may always google "home rule" and "Dallas ISD" for the past week to see recent events.
