Get the lead out of Houston schools
Superintendent Millard House II,
We, the undersigned, are concerned about lead in our school drinking water, and we are asking HISD to replace all contaminated fountains with water bottle filling stations and install filters on all water sources. Lead exposure is directly linked to lower IQ, increased rates of ADHD, need for special education services, higher lifetime healthcare costs, and even higher crime rates. We urge you to take proactive steps to protect our students.
