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.

Also this hour: Our political experts discuss the latest national, state, and local political stories — with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

And Sam Houston might soon be getting his own presidential library.
