A powerfully accurate history of recent DISD combat toward improving our schools was published February 28, 2018. This magazine article is a detailed history of the past 8 years and is wonderful reading for anyone who cares about DISD. Here is the link to it: https://oakcliff.advocatemag.com/2018/02/disd-movie-plot-twists-players-money-drama-dallas-education-reform-politics/
Now for the data that was left out of this valuable article:
The Young Women's STEAM Academy in Balch Springs has been the highest SEI scoring Middle School for two of the past 3 years. That third year they were not the highest scoring they were in second place!! This wonderful school is composed of about 1,200 girls 99% minority and 91% economically disabled. It is also the lowest funded by pupil of any middle school in Dallas!
