January 2108:25 AM
 

Victoria’s school district will temporarily close Victoria West High School due to COVID-19 related staff shortages.

The school is expected to resume operations Monday. Based on how the school operates, the decision was made with Victoria West High School’s administration to close Friday, said Sherri Hathaway, the school district’s emergency manager. All athletic events will continue as scheduled. view article  arw

Killeen ISD parents concerned over rising cases with staff & students

January 2108:25 AM
 

KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) - One day after Killeen ISD Superintendent John Craft delivered a video message to parents and staff detailing plans to keep schools open, parents like Arnesha Smalls have concerns. “Overall, I believe he meant it in a positive light, but I think it caused more damage than it did positivity,” she said. Smalls adds while she understands the thinking in keeping students learning in-person, her daughter’s experiences in school suggest otherwise. “Just the consistency of I don’t know who’s gonna be my teacher today,” she said. ADVERTISEMENT “For him to say our kids are in the cafeteria or gymnasium for periods and with quality educators, it just doesn’t go together.” Smalls joins other parents in saying while complicated, maybe the best decision moving forward for the district is to split students in virtual and in-person learning environments. However, Rachel Bourrage with the Killeen Educator’s Association believes that will only make things worse. “That’s a lot of work for the teachers,” she said. “That’s a lot of lesson plans, curriculums, tests and grading for at-home and in school. When they did this last year, that was a lot of stress for the teachers.” view article  arw

Praying football coach with ‘really strong case’ headed to Supreme Court

January 2108:25 AM
 

WASHINGTON (TND) — The Supreme Court will hear the case of a high school football coach who lost his job for praying midfield after games. Joseph Kennedy’s legal team is arguing his removal as coach violates the First Amendment. Ilya Shapiro, director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies at the CATO Institute, said Kennedy has a “really strong case.” “What the 9th Circuit did was essentially say that it would be a violation of the Establishment Clause, the separation of church and state, to allow him to engage in his private speech that he's not compelling anyone to join him in after football games. I think that's a bridge too far,” said Shapiro to The National Desk’s Jan Jeffcoat. “The fact that the court took this case is a solid indication they're looking to reverse.” view article  arw

Oklahoma will allow state employees to work as substitute teachers to fight shortages

January 2108:25 AM
 

Oklahoma will allow state employees to work as substitute teachers — while keeping their current jobs — as it attempts to keep schools open for in-person learning in the face of widespread staffing shortages.

California is expediting the hiring process for new substitute teachers and allowing their contracts to be extended. Kansas will allow people with no college credit to become subs. view article  arw

Analysis: Texas government is business-friendly, but not businesslike

January 2105:00 AM
 

Business people running elections might try to remove obstacles to make everything smooth and secure for voters. But a kink in the supply chain for voter registration forms in Texas highlights a venerable distinction: Government doesn't run like a business.  Government is not a business and doesn’t run like one. That “run government like a business” motto you hear from political candidates comes from the “tastes great, less filling” school of advertising. view article  arw

Texas GOP gubernatorial candidate says he won’t fire staffer tied to white nationalist movement

January 2105:00 AM
 

Republican gubernatorial candidate Don Huffines said Wednesday he will not fire a campaign staffer who said on his YouTube channel in 2020 that he wants to “restore historical American culture” by “maintaining a supermajority of the original stock of the United States, and maintaining a homogeneity,” referring to white people. The staffer, Jake Lloyd Colglazier, has previously done fieldwork for the campaign, Huffines said, adding that he will not take any action against Colglazier.
