Monday's BEAUMONT ISD School Board meeting was a model board meeting choreographed and directed by TEA. It would be a good school board training to view. There is much to be learned by Texas public school administrators and board members based the current situation in Beaumont ISD. I suggest readers savor this opportunity to learn from the mistakes made. There is no excuse for the same mistakes to occur in other Texas school districts.  Watch the video of last night's meeting. -js - view article arw

Officials: Undocumented Children Won’t Break Texas Schools

July 2208:35 AM

Texas and federal officials have been preoccupied this summer by the immediate needs of the 50,000-plus children who’ve arrived in South Texas since last fall, fleeing violence and poverty in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The kids are entitled, by federal law and international agreement, to food, shelter, medical care and legal attention in the U.S.—even if they’re destined to be returned to their home countries eventually—all of which has the government scrambling to meet the most basic needs. view article arw

Another perspective on residency requirements

July 2208:31 AM

This article is not specifically about schools but if discussed fully would involve attendance, and many taxpayers issues. - js.  The saga of gaming residence for the sake of running for office – what a tangle of legal precedent it provides. Mr. Kuffner has used the occasion of the Wilson lawsuit to suggest some sort of legal reform to our statutory definition of residence, mindful of the weeds and quicksand. Mr. Kuffner’s suggestion is to treat an out-of-territory homestead exemption as a bar to holding office within a territory (assuming the jurisdiction in question has a residence requirement for holding office). view article arw
