Top Stories: Teaching The Solar Eclipse; Drawbacks To Community College Bill

Christopher Connelly

The top local stories this morning from KERA News: The first day of school is always a big deal. It was even bigger for North Texas science teachers with yesterday's historic solar eclipse.

We visited one Fort Worth classroom to see how teachers were taking advantage of the moment.

Other stories this morning:  

  • Expanding Texas community to offer four-year degrees in areas with workforce shortages sounds good on paper, but not all educators are happy about the effort.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:22 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
