mysanantonio.com / Wed, 9 Nov 2011 05:34:22 UT
The incumbent sweep can serve as a boost of confidence for Houston Independent School District Superintendent Terry Grier, whose contract is up for renewal late next year. Noel Freeman, head of the Houston GLBT Caucus, said he or other representatives of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender group plan to attend the next HISD board meeting to demand an explanation from Rodriguez.

Harris said she thinks her victory shows that her community supports the district's reform efforts such as tying teachers' job evaluations to student achievement and Grier's rollout of "graduation labs," which allow high school students to make up courses online. A spokesman for Daniels' campaign said low voter turnout made it hard to defeat an incumbent with a platform to reach voters.
