Keep the SAT and ACT

One of the most puzzling and unfathomable things I have witnessed as an international student and, later, as a faculty member and citizen is the assault on education at all levels in the United States. There is the constant call for academic institutions to lower their academic standards or abolish standardized tests like ACT and SAT because, in the words of some proponents, such tests are racist in nature and inherently discriminate against minority and disabled students. Sadly, such loud cries are gaining more ground and putting more pressure on colleges and universities to opt out of or cancel the standard tests. Such totally irrational and irresponsible pushes, in the name of helping minority students, are leaving American students unprepared for college, hindering minority students’ finishing of education, sending a wrong message about what American institutions of learning value, destroying America’s fundamental beliefs in hard work and personal accountability, and further putting America’s national and international interest at risk.

TOLLIVER: The Class of 2024 is at a disadvantage

No two college students have the same experience. Some spend most of their time studying inside, while others soak up the sun and toss around a ball whenever they can. However, since March 2020, college experiences have been limited due to COVID-19. Fourth years had to adjust their graduations and teachers had to get used to Zoom. One of the academic groups that got the shortest end of the stick was first years. Not only did traditional graduation commencements and the last part of senior year have to be altered, but their first year in college was left in doubt. They sat in anticipation and waited for the University to decide whether or not to open in-person activities, and even still, certain precautions had to be taken in an effort to limit exposure to COVID-19.

How a sat-nav can make you faster around a track

Tuition from a pro is the best way to improve your lap times, but Garmin says its new device can give you an edge at every track. Let’s give this clever box of tricks a go and see if it can unleash the hidden Jacky Ickx in me. It’s unlikely, but there might be a little extra pace to be dragged out of this old dog. I might even be able to impress our young-gun road testers next time I’m out on a track with them.

Piece of Gatesville history finds a corner in new high school

Tucked away in a warehouse sat a piece of Gatesville history: the cornerstone of the original school built in 1914. Shortly after the school was demolished, the stone was given to officials at the Gatesville Independent School District as a token. Fast forward nearly half a century later — as the school district expands facilities at the high school — this remnant of the past finds a home in the present.
