The Super Speaks: Michael Hinojosa Talks About "Emerging and Evolving" Budget Process

Superintendent Media Availability from Dallas Independent School Dist on Vimeo.

When I asked Jim for his take on yesterday's board briefing at 3700 Ross Avenue, this was his initial pass: "My interpretation of the day's events is that we are all dangling on the end of Rick Perry's yo-yo string and nobody has any idea what is going to happen and I wish I had not attended this meeting." More upcoming shortly, though -- of course. Till then, the district has posted Dallas ISD Super Michael Hinojosa's one-man show, along with yesterday's "legislative update" given the board, in which he walks through the minefield of legislation that may or may not decimate the district and most others.
