AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick wants the Legislature to study implementing school voucher programs that have so far stalled in Texas, despite support from top conservatives. Patrick backs giving parents state funding to remove their kids from struggling public schools and send them to private and religious alternatives.
AUSTIN – The Texas Supreme Court is once again faced with determining whether the state's method of funding public schools is unconstitutional, the latest in a long line of school finance cases that stretches back more than 30 years.

A state senator urged Attorney General Eric Holder Wednesday to open a Department of Justice investigation of Texas truancy laws, citing racial disparities in how they are applied, particularly in the Fort Bend Independent School District. Sen. Rodney Ellis' letter, released to The Chronicle, comes two weeks after the advocacy group Texas Appleseed published a report saying Texas filed more than 115,000 "failure to attend school" complaints in fiscal year 2013, more than twice the number of truancy cases prosecuted in all other states combined. Reconsidering Texas' Criminalization of Truancy, which says that 20 percent of truancy statewide complaints filed in the 2013-14 school year were brought against African-American students, though they made up just 13 percent public school students. Hispanic students also received a disproportionate share of the complaints: 33 percent of the truancy charges were filed against them, though they comprised 27 percent of the student body. "Simply put, these laws hurt students, particularly the African-American, Latino, and special education students who are sent to truancy court at rates much higher than students from other communities," Ellis wrote.

This article was mostly composed of different educators answering the question, what are the best ways a teacher can demonstrate leadership in the classroom? Several teachers responded by saying that creating relationships was important and being able to change and adjust too. Another point was made that teachers are no longer able to say that they do not have resources to become better leaders. The internet has made it very easy to research and collaborate with other teachers.
