Drug testing will expand at Midway High School

June 2108:15 AM
 

Starting in August, Midway High School students who park on campus will be subject to random drug testing, after a decision this week by Midway Independent School District trustees. The board voted unanimously Tuesday to widen the scope of its drug testing policy, which already applies to students grades seventh through 12th who are involved in extracurricular activities. “Our entire goal I think was to cast a wider net ... to catch more students into a restorative way when they do get involved in drugs,” Assistant Superintendent Jeanie Johnson told the board Tuesday. She said the proposal was the result of “a lot of time and effort and thoughtful consideration from several groups.” view article  arw

English not only binds us, but it can ease America’s identity crisis

June 2107:45 AM
 

For those of us who favor a welcoming society, where a regulated legal flow of immigrants helps grow the economy, we need to take seriously the concerns of those in this country who fear America is becoming a land of parallel universes. Otherwise, the pushback against immigration might only intensify, with opponents convinced that no one hears their concerns about America becoming a splintered nation. One of those worries — understandably — is that English will slip away as a unifying force in our country.  This anxiety is more than a passing one. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that nearly one in 10 U.S. public school students was learning English as a second language in 2015, and that number is projected to increase. In Texas, about 17 percent of students already qualify as English-language learners. In California, that figure is 21 percent. view article  arw

Texas Governor’s School Safety Plan Offers One Way To Change Active Shooter Drills

June 2008:40 AM
 

Across Texas and the country, many campuses conduct active shooter drills. Because school shootings are often perpetrated by students who attend those schools, some raise a concern: Do these drills give potential shooters too much inside information? Schools conduct all kinds of safety drills to prepare for everything from fires to tornadoes. Beginning in the 1950s, triggered by the threat of a nuclear explosion, Bert the cartoon turtle taught kids to “duck and cover.” Similarly, active shooter drills are designed to enhance safety, but what if they do the opposite? view article  arw
