    Thursday letters: Tuition costs, evangelicals, Starbucks

    Making the grade Regarding “Tuition price tag becoming hurdle only rich can scale” (Page A13, Friday), for several years I was a docent at one of Houston's most popular museums.

    Starbucks has new guidelines for when employees should call 911

    Medical emergency, burglary, physical assault. These are a few instances in which Starbucks is now saying employees should call 911. The guidelines are a part of Starbucks's new policy allowing customers to use restrooms and sit in cafes and patios even if they do not make a purchase. The approach lays out specific steps for how employees respond to and address disruptive customer behavior. Underlying the rules is the expectation that customers use company spaces as intended and be considerate of others, specifically they should refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol, panhandling or sleeping. The new guidelines come days before Starbucks will close 8,000 stores for mandatory unconscious bias
