This paper provides an overview of representation as defined by scholars and applies their theories to school boards. The paper presents a study of 156 school districts in the North Central Texas region to reveal the degree of Hispanic school board representation in two educational regions. The study includes an overview of the number of seats on each school board; Hispanic school board membership and percentages; Hispanic student enrollment in each district, and the percentage of Hispanic students in each district. The study concludes that Hispanic children are underrepresented.
