Steps Back in History at the Alamo: Take a short 7 min walk from the hotel to remember the Alamo. Home of the famous 1863 battle, the Alamo reminds us of William Barrett Travis’s words:  “I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country — Victory or Death.” The Alamo

Religion in schools -- A matter of trust and training

Buy the fire truck before the fire – that is the advice of Charles Haynes. “Get prepared for this,” he told an audience of school attorneys. “School districts that have a trust level with their community are in the best position to avoid litigation.”

“This” is conflicts on religion in public schools – which Haynes, senior scholar and director of the Religious Freedom Education Project at the Newseum, said are mostly preventable with policies, staff training, and building trust in the community.

Rethinking teacher tenure

A hundred years ago, teachers could be fired for any reason: race, creed, political favoritism, marriage, pregnancy. In the 1920s, some unlucky teachers were terminated for wearing pants.

While no one wants to return to those days, many people believe that the teacher tenure pendulum has swung too far the other way, making it nearly impossible for school districts to terminate ineffective teachers.
