Being from New England, there are many reasons to want Roger Goodell, the National Football League’s (NFL) commissioner, to be removed from his position of power. Unfortunately for the NFL, Goodell just recently granted everyone in America another reason to dislike his tenure as commissioner. Two weeks ago, Houston hosted Super Bowl LI, which brought in more than 111 million viewers and has been recorded as “the fifth most-watched TV broadcast in history.” A week after Texas’ record setting Super Bowl, the NFL threatened Texas that the Super Bowl could never be hosted within the state again.

In addition to protecting students’ free speech rights, SAS also seeks to make sure that students are...Read More
Over the next several weeks, various Senate committees will continue voting on President Trump’s nominees for positions within the Executive Branch. Chief among Trump’s appointments, Betsy DeVos began her Senate confirmation process on Tuesday, January 17, as Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Education. DeVos was questioned by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions for over three hours. If confirmed by the Senate, DeVos will have a heavy hand to play in politically controversial issues, such as how to enhance our nation’s public schooling, how to utilize voucher programs, and what to do with federal academic standards and programs...Read More
