Councilmember Jerry Davis has begun making a larger issue over the education disparity in his district, the Houston Chronicle reports. Internal statistics from the Councilmember’s office have stated that 69% of the residents of District B have no high school diploma and 45% of the children in the district live in poverty.
Davis is making a bigger push on organizing events for literacy. This is quite heartwarming, as District B did not always have a Councilmember who seemed to care about things like this.
