SUMMARY: A Buddhist temple in Texas was vandalized by four suspected thieves who caused significant damage. The incident was caught on camera and a volunteer who witnessed the break-in spoke out against the perpetrators. The thieves were unable to find any money as the temple is mainly operated by donations. The volunteer called 9-1-1 but the thieves escaped before police arrived. Although no one was harmed, the temple will need costly repairs. The volunteer hopes the thieves will be caught to prevent similar incidents. The thieves only managed to steal a small sum of donation money.

During normal hours of operation, the Texas Guandi Temple is open to everyone who wants to come and pray especially around this time as they celebrate the Chinese New Year, but when four unknown males came in Wednesday afternoon, one of the volunteers immediately sensed something was wrong, and he was right.

SUMMARY: Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is campaigning for school choice candidates and pushing for education savings accounts. Despite criticism from public school officials, Abbott is confident in passing school choice legislation. There are concerns about public school funding and whether it will be increased next year. Abbott’s opponents argue that public schools need more funding, while Abbott emphasizes teacher pay raises. The debate surrounding public education funding is contentious, with Abbott standing by his support for school choice. Overall, Abbott’s approval rating remains strong, with his focus on border security and property tax relief resonating with voters.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has made passing school choice legislation a top priority. The governor sat down with FOX 4’s Steven Dial to talk about where things stand after the primary election and says deals that were previously offered may now be off the table.

SUMMARY: In tonight’s Fox 7 Focus, Dr. Heath Morrison discusses the rise of uncertified teachers in Texas Public Schools, due to districts of innovation allowing for hiring without certification. Before the pandemic, there were 2-3,000 uncertified teachers, but now there are over 177,000. Uncertified teachers tend to leave after 3 years and lack preparation in lesson construction and classroom management. Dr. Morrison emphasizes the need to support and certify these teachers, and suggests legislative action in the future. He believes in enhancing the teaching profession and ensuring proper compensation. The goal is to provide a pathway for uncertified teachers to become certified.

Concerns are growing over the sharp increase in uncertified teachers working in Texas public schools. Should you be worried about the quality of your child’s education? FOX 7’s John Krinjak takes a closer look.
