On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: Advocates are calling on trustees with the Harris County Department of Education to reverse some recent decisions. That includes the board's vote to fire the organization’s lobbying firm. We hear one activist’s concerns.

Also this hour: Our local experts break down the latest news in our weekly political roundup. Plus, News 88.7’s Laura Isensee examines how Texas has dealt — or failed to deal — with the issue of school finance reform over the years.

And a Houston filmmaker’s documentary tells the story of a beloved priest who was murdered — and the unlikely response to his killer.
