Many thanks to David Safier. Students who are acquiring English continue to be segregated from their mainstream peers for three to four years on average. This bill, if passed into law, will serve to isolate the students even more, further denying them the most valuable kind of language acquisition experience: on-going, daily face-to-face communication with their English-speaking peers. Computers are no substitute for human interaction.
Was the Star pumping him up, too?
He may not have any public "duties" to private schools but he can "own" one.. or two.
Kick his dumb @$$ out of office. What a tool. Let him get a job with that "private public education" sector that he's so enamored with. They'll pay him half, if that.
Let's see Hitler was a National Socialist and Obama is a Progressive Socialist. Not much difference.
Good catch on the subversive symbolism, Mr. Safier. The TTP's use of it says a lot about them as an organization, and a lot about their membership. Either they (ignorantly and inappropriately) find the Nazi references to be accurate, or it's a big insider joke to them, topped by the plausible deniability you mentioned. Either one is pretty disturbing to me.
Fortunately, there is nobody in the US today that can be compared to Hitler. That kind of comparison, like trivial comparisons to the Holocaust, are strikingly ridiculous in the face of the enormity of the crimes committed against humanity by Hitler and his Nazi regime.
FYI, the symbolism reminded me of 'Godwin's Law', that is: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1”.
There is an interesting article about it at:
"Is it ever OK to call someone a Nazi?"
Safier's comment above: "knowing who's selling," is important as it gives insight into the big picture agenda of those who pretend to care about public education.
Just google "Imagine Learning and Jeb Bush" for starters.
Thomas Jefferson knew the importance of public education. He set aside land for public education. It's only a matter of time before Ted Cruz refers to Jefferson as a Communist.
This is part of public education dismantling. Who needs teachers if you can stick a kid in front of a computer every day?
Although no picture, Euclid from Broadway to Speedway is in very bad condition. Also Roger from Oracle to 1st Ave is also bad.
Constantine Querard is wanted for giving Arizona the dumbest legislators ever.
and now Al Melvin
Dan; If I were Joe Arpaio I would not take you seriously as a journalist. I sincerely doubt Christine Jones does either. I would operate on the assumption that like Denver and Boulder, Arizona has Phoenix and Tucson as bastions of liberal thought, bias and dissemination. I don't believe you act with integrity and honesty given your propensity to make judgments based on your personal opinion.
I believe that The Romero House Potters has the best classes for those who wish to work in clay. Wheel work, handbuilding and sculpture are taught there year round. The. Facility is wonderful and the ambiance is friendly. Lots of free time to continue after the class. Great place!
Hundreds of authors and that's what we get. More MAS crap. Progressive propaganda.
There is a similar situation at Pueblo HS! HT met with their staff recently!
I'm part of choir!choir!choir! in Toronto, and I have to tell you, Tucson...if you begin a choir like ours, be prepared to do more than sing. Be ready to make great friends. Be ready to have support when you've had a bad day. Be ready to experience a joy that can only come from a collective conscience like choir. Get out there and do it.
TW, please do not abandon these whistle blowers or close the comments section at TUSD counsel's request. This retaliation against TUSD whistle blowers requires the public to take a closer look at TUSD's legal counsel, counsel is aware that allowing a hostile work environment to persist is wrong (and unlawful), what excuse could they have for allowing the complaint to be "lost" and failing to take proactive and responsible action? Negligence to perform one's legal duty to protect and uphold the law is an injustice to the entire staff, students, school reputation and taxpayers. Upholding the law is the best shield against class action and ill public perception.
Hang the B-tard.
After working for TUSD for 13 years, then being fired along with the entire faculty and staff for our school "underperforming." (and as it turned out we were NOT underperforming, it was a political move on the part of an assistant superintendent), no amount of corruption surprises me.
Though our firing was unwarranted, unethical, and the result of a corrupt alliance between the asst. supt. and the principal of another school, God protected me and I wound up in a much better situation.
No, I remember the Baron and "Ze Marlena", as his co-host called herself, going to some UFO convention around 2005 and the show lasted until about this time in 2011 when the station blew up so 6 years is about right. And I've listened to The Truth-if you think their hosts aren't removed from reality, you've been watching too much Fox News. Tucson needs a good conspiracy show so we can take the crazy crown from Austin and Alex Jones!
I remember that Gnosis show too. Baron was one crazy dude. Marlene was pleasant to my ears. Baron Chuck Aubrey can best be called a local yokel and certainly not a local radio veteran. His way out conspiracy theories offer nothing to the local community. Browsing the websites on Tucson radio, one finds no mention of Aubrey. The man is too far removed from reality to carry a show of any worth on The Truth. I'm not completely out of the loop in local radio and I don't remember Gnosis being on the jolt for anything near 6 years. Shooster again pumping up his friends instead of reporting facts in his weekly column. Disappointing, but entertaining as BS usually is.
