Star Logo-4C

Many Texas school districts, including Fort Bend ISD, have abused the discretion that the Texas legislature granted them. Such perceived abuse of discretion is largely why the issue of decriminalizing Truancy in the State of Texas is a major issue in the current legislative session.

Letter to the Editor 02/25/15

Dear Editor: The U.S. Advisory Panel on Dietary Guidelines has finally mustered the courage to recommend that Americans eat less meat and dairy products.
