Dream Closer To Reality for WALIPP
September 24, 2010

Congratulations to the William A. Lawson Institute for Peace and Prosperity.

WALIPP-TSU Preparatory Academy for middle school boys is another step closer to become a  state charter school.

Sources tell 2 On The Beat that on Thursday the State Board of  Education Committee on School Initiatives recommended WALIPP for a state charter. 

The full State Board of Education will likely vote to approve the award on Friday, September 24, 2010. 

This will be the realization of  a dream after supporters, parents and Dr. Lawson worked for years to get the school recognized with this prestigious designation.

This is a positive step in the right direction, especially considering that we often hear so many negative things about poorly run charter schools in the Houston area.

WALIPP  has a strong reputation for  student achievement and the school is believed to be solid financial ground.
