Blue Dogs posted a topic in EducationIn case you've been living under a rock during the Christmas holiday break, TX Governor Greg Abbott (R), in a scathing tweet on Twitter, put Houston ISD's failed leadership on full-blast. He also slammed the district's leaders for "self-centered ineptitude" & rallied for the State on taking over the school district's Board of Trustees. I believe that Abbott's right on this one for obvious reasons: the recent ugly racially-polarized battle over the demotion of Houston ISD Interim Superintendent Dr. Grenita Latham in favor of former Houston ISD Superintendent Abe Saavedra from a few months ago(who recently left San Antonio ISD & refused to return to his old job in Houston due to the backlash) which spiraled out of control following racial divisions between the African American & Latino Houston ISD School Board members: later the Board of Trustees voted to keep Latham as the Interim Superintendent. State Senator Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston) is pushing legislation which could eliminate single-member district in favor of At-Large Districts including other measures. Like to know your thoughts on Abbott calling out Houston ISD & calling for statewide takeover of the State's largest school district ? https://www.texastribune.org/2019/01/03/texas-gov-greg-abbott-take-over-houston-isd/ https://abc13.com/education/gov-abbott-says-houston-isd-leadership-is-a-disaster/5011215/ A.)

I figure I'd start a new topic on Photography since it gets brought up occasionally and derails a topic a bit. My time is limited so I don't want to head to another forum blog and much rather talk to those of you that share the same interest in Architecture and Houston as a whole. On this topic I hope to discuss photographic locations/opportunities, equipment, lens selections, and maybe even a photo walk if there is enough of an interest. Currently, I own an Sony a55 with the following lenses: 28mm 2.8 50mm 1.4 18-85mm 3.5-5.6 70-300mm 5.6 some other novelty lenses.
