Staff Shortages Continue as Low Morale Grows
Ryleigh Stinson and J Hillis February 19, 2024

Paperwork. Grades. Rude students. Extra duty assignments. Low pay. And low morale.  The 2023 Texas Teacher Poll, an independent study by the Charles Butt Foundation, surveyed teachers from across the state of Texas and detailed the rates of teachers quitting, the reasons why, and solutions to these issues. The study reported that 75% of teachers seriously considered leaving in 2023, a 17% increase from 2020.  64% of teachers say staff shortages contribute to stress as they are expected to take on extra tasks to fill gaps from missing teachers.  This year is English teacher Mackenzie Blank’s second year teaching.  “I...

The NCAA needs to adjust the rules of the transfer portal to create a more positive experience for its student-athletes.
Opinion: The Transfer Portal Is Bad
Ryleigh Stinson, Staff Writer • February 16, 2024

Before 2022, student-athletes were required to graduate college before they could transfer. Now, with new transfer portal rules, there are hardly any regulations on transfers. The NCAA should change the transfer portal rules better to accommodate high school and Division II/III athletes, and to prevent athletes from playing at several different schools. According to ncaa.org, approximately 5.77% of student-athletes play their sport at an NCAA-sanctioned college or university. There are a whopping 7,061,710 high school athletes across the United States. Playing a collegiate sport at any level is already an accomplishment, and as schools continue to recruit from the portal, the opportunities for younger student-athletes in their freshman and sophomore years are dwindling. The NCAA also reports 20,911 Division I student-athletes entered the portal in 2022. A total of 10,324 Division II athletes entered the transfer portal, but only 3,033 successfully transferred to a new school.
