Then and Now: The State of Children
Children at Risk

November, 2014

              25 Years of Change for Children, Volume VIII of XXV



25 years ago, parents lacked access to information about the quality of their neighborhood schools. They lacked the guidance they needed to choose schools that would best serve their children. Public education in Texas was not accountable for the education they delivered our state’s students. By the 21st century, students were dropping out of Houston schools at an alarming rate.


In 2006, CHILDREN AT RISK released our 1st Annual School Rankings to bring attention to the dropout crisis facing Houston.  Today we still continue these rankings each year and now cover the state of Texas.  For parents in Forth Worth and Dallas ISD areas, we have created a new expanded actionable resource, Texas School Guide. All of these resources give parent access to the information needed to make the best school choice for their children.
