Dallas students have no time to be waiting for Superman

Dr. Hinojosa will be staying in Dallas.  That is good.  If he can continue, and maybe even accelerate, the progress of his first five years, he may achieve that status of "Superman."

But Dr. Hinojosa knows that the real super heroes are our students.  It is the students who do the needed work to achieve graduation, often with honors while living in poverty with very difficult family situations. DISD must motivate and support them. With an ever increasing transparency as to what is happening within DISD, combined with an active district-wide focus by students on their own futures, DISD will see this progress continue.

Our students have no time to wait for a super hero. Their future is being formed now! Progress must happen now. There can be no "waiting for Superman."
