Hand sanitizers

March 20, 2020

I wonder if there will be any negative effects of our current frequent use of hand sanitizers.

I remember learning that not all bacteria are bad, that some help us.

Can any of our readers enlighten us?

We deserve better

SISD less 75

March 18, 2020

I saw this item on the Socorro Independent School District site:

A. Consider approval of Notice of Separation Incentive
INFO **The Department of Human Resources will offer a separation incentive in the
amount of $500.00 to the first seventy-five (75) classroom teachers, administrators, or
other professional exempt staff assigned to a school site, who submit a Notice of
Voluntary Separation effective at the end of the 2019-2020 contract year to the
Department of Human Resources on or before 5:00 p.m., on Friday, March 31, 2020.

Is this something that they normally do?

Are they downsizing?

We deserve better

I’ve been asked to compare public charter school funding in Texas to independent school district funding.

I found this on the txcharterschools.org web site:

EPISD–students suffer

March 11, 2020

The original post was incorrect.

Rather than continuing with an incorrect conclusion I have removed the original text with a commitment to be more careful next time.

SISD in denial

March 10, 2020

The Socorro Independent School District superintendent evidently recently told his board of trustees that almost all of their graduates last year were actually qualified for graduation.

I can understand mistakes being made.

What I cannot understand is a superintendent saying anything other than “I will get to the bottom of this and see to it that this does not happen again”.

We don’t need to lower our standards any further.

The other graduates deserve better.
