According to the Houston Chronicle, HISD Superintendent Terry Grier is pitching a new plan to deal with troubled students. Under the transfer program, students with minor discipline problems could be swapped to another school rather than getting sent to an alternative program. It wouldn't apply to violent students or those who require suspension. The idea is to get those students away from bad influences.

The Houston Federation of Teachers opposes the program.
