Unfortunately, Aim Higher seems to have pinned their rally to that Houston job fair ad that seems too good to be true. Aim Higher has named the Facebook page for this rally “Houston, We Have a Problem: Stop NC’s Education Exodus!” WWNC 570’s Pete Kaliner thinks Houston has a problem and might be a bit too good to be true too.
