On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: What started as a heated workshop to consider handing ten HISD schools over to a charter network turned into a skirmish and protest Tuesday night. It led to the detention of at least two women and ended without a vote on the future of the schools. News 88.7’s Laura Isensee recaps what took place.

And Texas lawmakers are hearing testimony today about the environmental response to Harvey.
