On Tuesday’s show: A ruling from the Texas Supreme Court allows for the state takeover of the HISD board to move forward. And HISD has ended plans to move special needs students out of TH Rogers School. We get an update on both stories from News 88.7 reporter Dominic Anthony Walsh. And we preview the week ahead at Houston City Council with reporter Ashley Brown.

Also this hour: We discuss how the new legislative session might affect Texas children with Bob Sanborn of Children at Risk.

Then, we visit a section of the East End to learn how some developers want to create a neighborhood where residents can function without cars.

And we learn about the changing face of the food scene in Chinatown and what that might mean for the long-established institutions that have built up the neighborhood over the decades.
