February 19, 2012 is a day SAPD Officer Jonathan Esquivel can't remember. In fact, he can't remember March or April either. Esquivel had just gotten out of his patrol car on Loop 410 and Evers to help a stranded motorist when the driver of a pick up slammed into him.
After battling many injuries, Esquivel is focused on one thing, "I want to be a police officer. I don't see me doing anything else so I want to get back whenever I can to make sure I'm ready to go and do everything I was doing before".
For now, Officer Esquivel is well on his way to recovery.
No lesson plans means no state review for CSCOPE
May 24, 2013 22:36 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The State Board of Education is scrapping its special panel to review a controversial curriculum system, after its creators agreed to stop offering lesson plans.
CSCOPE had helped teachers adhere to state educational requirements by offering Web-based lesson plans and exams.
But some conservatives claimed CSCOPE promoted anti-American values. That prompted the State Board of Education to create a committee to review CSCOPE's lesson plans, beginning with social studies.
CSCOPE's creators were working voluntarily with the committee. But amid continued complaints, they voted Friday to take down all online lesson plans effective Aug. 31.
Board of Education Chairwoman Barbara Gargill said Friday that makes the review "no longer necessary."
She said CSCOPE "has vividly shown what can happen with content when it is left unchecked and with limited parental access."
