I'm certified in Texas and have not taught in a public school since my certification (almost 2 yrs.) I've been in private schools. I just wanted to make sure I keep up with the 150 hr requirement so I can apply for my renewal certificate in 5 yrs. I know that most of you probably just go to the stuff required by your school but, if you know of anything else that I can use that'll count please pass it along.

remymort :
"I took a grad class. Even if you've already gone to grad school, you can apply it as a solid 40 hours out of 75 in New Hampshire. I don't know if it's the same, but why wouldn't it be?"
Curious_Yank_N_Korea :
"There are opportunities to get your PD requirements by attending seminars and also by reviewing dissertations. I know this latter because many who review work for those who are applying for Ph.Ds want "layman's" eyes as a fresh perspective before critically analyzing it."

When I read this news I was appalled and shocked, in disbelief, that in this day in age a Judge of Justice of Peace in the United States Of America, would actually ordered a stepfather to spank his stepdaughter in court in order to avoid the $ 500.00 DLL fine the girl faces for not attending school.

One of the problems with visual search sites is that most of them are only suited for a few specific kinds of queries. Viewzi, a startup out of Texas, is looking to offer a more adaptive visual search that can radically change in both appearance and function depending on the search term.

A satiric, 21st Century twist on Jonathan Swift's "throw the baby out with the bath water" editorial. Hamilton "advocates" the abolishment of the age of consent. Why have a law (Texas? Utah?) if you're not going to enforce it? Hamilton is a professor at Cardozo School of Law and author of Justice Denied: What America Must Do to Protect Its Children
