Campaign themes


On September 3, 2013, Spring ISD student Joshua Broussard was fatally stabbed and three others were injured at Spring High School. Humphrey impresses the importance of adding metal detectors to all elementary, middle and high schools in the district. A bond was passed in 2011, in which voters in the district voted to fund the purchase of metal detectors in Spring ISD, however the machines were never purchased or installed in schools.

At a recent protest, Humphrey held a sign reading, "All school board members need to resign immediately."[3][4]


Termination from Spring ISD

Humphrey is a former Spring ISD teacher, where she was employed for ten months. In August 2012, Humphrey had complained of a water leak in her classroom, citing that she was inhaling toxic chemicals that made her ill, and as a result, causing her to miss work. Her contract was terminated with Spring ISD, with the district citing she did not provide proper documentation for the leave. A lawsuit followed wherein Humphrey petitioned the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for Spring ISD improperly terminating her. On April 19, 2013, Humphrey's appeal was denied and the judgement upheld.[5]

Racial Demographics, 2012[6]
Race Harris County (%) Texas (%)
White 70.7 80.3
Black or African American 19.5 12.4
American Indian and Alaska Native 1.1 1.0

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[8]
