Leaders of an Arlington police union want the city to create a special tax district to fund police programs, but city leaders have not publicly taken up the issue of creating a Crime Control and Prevention District, or CCPD.鈥疛ohnny Nhan, criminology and criminal justice professor, said creating a CCPD is a tougher ask than it was when Fort Worth created its CCPD, when crime rates were higher and 鈥渢ough on crime鈥 policies reigned. 鈥淭he appetite for paying more taxes and things like that are not necessarily the big sell these days,鈥 Nhan said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 not the most appealing thing. It鈥檚 particularly difficult, in my opinion, for the police because they do usually take the lion鈥檚 share of this budget.鈥

Concerns regarding a state law passed in 2021 put an end to efforts begun by Fort Worth鈥檚 Task Force on Race and Culture to improve college and workforce readiness among Black and Hispanic high school students through civic engagement. The law presented challenges to this effort because it prohibits schools from requiring or giving class credit for 鈥渄irect communication鈥 between federal, state or local officials for 鈥減olitical activism, lobbying or efforts to persuade members of the legislative or executive branch.鈥濃Keith Gaddie, Hoffman Chair of the American Ideal鈥痑nd professor of political science, says H.B. 3979 and Senate Bill 3 are the result of the ongoing debate about the American narrative. 鈥淚t鈥檚 an effort to further isolate education in a manner that it鈥檚 only about technical processes and establishing things that only serve to create a trained workforce for the marketplace, but not necessarily a trained citizen,鈥 Gaddie said.

Young adult author鈥Jeramey Kraatz鈥08,鈥痟ad a homecoming of sorts when he visited Reagan Elementary School to talk to students about his unique storytelling point of view and the writing process. 鈥淭he trick to that is you don鈥檛 usually do that much better next time if you鈥檙e not fixing it. I can tell you that from experience because after going through this year and a half of working on the first book and revising it and editing it, when I sat down to write the second book, I could hear my editor, or I could hear my own editorial voice in the back of my head saying, 鈥楯eramey, this chapter is too long. Jeramey, this scene is not working. Jeramey, these characters aren鈥檛 making smart decisions鈥 鈥 And what happened was my first draft ended up being so much stronger on the second book than my first draft of the first book because I knew what I was doing,鈥 Kraatz said.

Head women鈥檚 basketball coach Mark Campbell was off to a charmed start. In his first season at TCU, his makeover was an instant hit, taking over a team that finished 1-17 in the Big 12 the year before and leading them to a 14-0 start and the longest winning streak in school history. Then over the course of a few weeks in January, several high-profile transfers were injured. TCU had to forfeit two games due to a shortage of players. To stay afloat for the final two months of the season, Campbell had to find players from the student body who wanted to rearrange their lives to go all-in on college basketball.鈥疭ix months earlier, Piper Davis arrived at TCU from Boise after leading her high school to a state championship.
