SUMMARY: Smoke from wildfires in the Texas Panhandle is causing concern as firefighters battle the largest wildfire on record in the state. Over 1 million acres have burned, with hundreds of homes destroyed and residents left with nothing but ash. The fires are expected to worsen with high winds and low humidity. Houston area firefighters are aiding in efforts to contain the blazes, but the use of airplanes and helicopters to drop water may be limited due to high wind speeds. Residents are devastated as they sift through the ashes in search of keepsakes from their destroyed homes. Governor Abbott has visited the area, but the situation remains dire.

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.
