By: Ashlei KingSAN ANTONIO - Students at Edison High School learned on Wednesday they may not be able to take their certification to become a nursing assistant at the end of the year. The school said it just found out the teacher in charge of the program is missing part of his certification."I was just disappointed. I wasn't expecting that," Kalani Wood said.Wood is a senior at Edison and is enrolled in the Medical Professional Certified Nursing Assistant program. Through the program, students are able to take a test to become certified as a nursing assistant.
Although the teacher over the program is a registered nurse and has experience working at Brooke Army Medical Center, the San Antonio Independent School District just learned he is missing one important qualification – experience in a long term facility, like a nursing home."We had thought that his experience with BAMC, Brooke Army Medical Center, would qualify for that, but we have since learned that it does not,” SAISD Spokesperson Leslie Price said.The district is now scrambling to enact plan b, which is hiring a program director to oversee the program while the teacher continues to teach the class."The program director, who has the certifications, would just insure that everything is being properly done so that the students are qualified to be able to take the certification test at the end of the school year,” Price explained.A sign outside of Edison reads “Make it happen, no excuses.” That is what Wood and her mother hope the school does."For them to pull the plug senior year, for her it's senior year, and a month into the school year with no communication prior to this, it really feels like they're pulling the rug out from under them,” Liana Greenberg, Wood’s mother, said.The district said it has until January to find a program director, but school administrators believe they will find one much sooner.
The countdown is on for the historic first debate between Texas gubernatorial candidates Attorney General Greg Abbott and Senator Wendy Davis. On Friday, September 19th at 6pm they will square off at the Edinburg Conference Center at Renaissance in the Rio Grande Valley. The two will duke it out over key issues like abortion, immigration, border security and education.
You can watch the entire debate on our sister station, News 4 San Antonio – or here on FoxSanAntonio.com. If you have questions for the candidates, use the hashtag #rgvdebate on Twitter.
This is the first time in 14 years that Texas will elect a new governor. The debate will last one hour and rules have been preapproved by both participants.
Representatives from each side participated in a coin toss to decide who will answer the first debate question and who will ask the first candidate to candidate question. Each question will have a response time of one minute, and each rebuttal will have a response time of 45 seconds.
Wendy Davis won the coin toss and opted to start the debate by answering the first question. As a result, Greg Abbott will have the final remarks by going last for closing statements.
A great twist will be the candidate to candidate questions which are sure to set off some fireworks as Abbott and Davis battle one another over the airwaves with attack commercials.
