HOUSTON -- Parents and community activists gathered at Dodson Elementary School Thursday to protest HISD’s decision to shut it down.

"Save our schools,” chanted protestors.

Parents said Dodson is a good school with more than enough students to stay open, but HISD disagrees. Dodson is being closed down because of low enrollment, according to HISD.

Most students will be rezoned to Blackshear Elementary, which is less than 2 miles away.
