SUMMARY: In two weeks, a total solar eclipse will be visible in North Texas. Families from New Zealand and England are traveling to Dallas to witness the event, staying with local families they met years prior. The Sharpe family is excited for their first total eclipse, while the G family is looking forward to their third one. Both families plan to focus on experiencing the eclipse rather than taking pictures. The G family’s trip is also a birthday celebration for Stephen, who will turn 72 the day before the eclipse. Classmates of the Sharpe’s son are jealous of his trip to see the eclipse.

Millions in North Texas will be able to simply step outside and see it, but others are flying halfway around the world to see it.

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.
