Stephanie Brown’s children have come and gone from Thurgood Marshall High School, but her days as an advocate for the struggling Fort Bend County campus are far from over.
“Our concern is we need something done for those students that are there,” said Brown. “If they’re struggling, then get them the support they need.”
Brown, the mother of three Marshall graduates, is among alumni and others from the Marshall community who remember its early years: a thriving campus with an engineering academy, invested teachers, a strong principal and other resources that helped students achieve and excel.
Now, Marshall is one of just two high schools in Fort Bend with a “D-” rating on this year’s school report card according to the nonprofit Children at Risk; nine other schools in the district have higher ratings. Parents note that Marshall has had seven principals in its 17-year history. They are calling for stable leadership and teachers invested in the students.
