[HOUSTON, TX] Today January 13, 2022 at 5:30pm at CFISD HQ FIEL will join with NAACP and other community organizations. FIEL spokespeople and CFISD students will be available for comment.
" On Monday Scott Henry made some startling statements when it comes to black teachers and students. What we saw in the video posted on Twitter was only a snippet of his racist tirade that evening. We will not stand for a public official to make these kinds of statements. As a parent and as a community member we want Mr. Henry to resign. We also demand that the board as a whole denounce his posture and condemn it. This is UNACCEPTABLE " – Cesar Espinosa FIEL Executive Director
