Which students get into advanced math? Texas is using test scores to limit bias
A new Texas law calls for every student who performs in the top 40% on a fifth-grade math assessment to be enrolled automatically in advanced math for sixth grade.
The policy aims to remove barriers that can stand between bright students and rigorous courses. Instead of having families opt-in to advanced math, they instead will be given the choice to opt-out.
The rollout could provide lessons for other states. Leaders across the country are confronting the need to prepare a new, diverse generation of workers in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.
Elon Musk facing defamation lawsuit in Texas over posts that falsely identified man in protest
A California man who says he was harassed after Elon Musk amplified social media posts that made false claims about him is suing the billionaire.
The lawsuit was filed Monday in Austin, Texas, by the same attorney who won a defamation case last year against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
