The facts are the facts- most students from Catalina Foothills go to college, and most from the southside do not. Yes, parental and environmental factors are critical- that's obvious. But so is the school. In my vast experience with Tucson schools (as a sub and full-time teacher), I stand by every word of this article as the truth.
Do people enjoy being reminded of how far behind they are? Of course not. I understand some of the resentment (although getting mad at me won't solve anything- let's get those angered kids to the LIBRARY where they can actually make some progress!).
I challenge anyone reading this to inspect the issue for themselves. Stop by a few classrooms at a southside middle or high school; then swing by Orange grove or Catalina Foothills.
You will be able to confirm what I wrote over 2 years ago.
It's good to be alive!
Metzger makes some phenomenal food. Can't wait to try them all!! Location is right next to World of Beer on Congress.
I hate Arizona.
All Righty then.. Pima County has it's own Ted Cruz or Curz.. depending on wether you're realistic or dyslexic.
But to lock here and her staff behind closed doors? That's something the late great Commie hating Sen. McCarthy used to do.
What's with these wingnutz?
Is it really necessary to discount such a work of art just to make a negative comment?
Yes, congrats on the good photo.
BUT if they would obey the existing laws, they wouldn't be split-up, would they?
Holiday Christmas Music Flash Mob would be a great addition and adventure to the people of Tucson. A surprise fest at one of the big malls. music and song for the surprised shoppers
What a class act. I'd say I was surprised, but then I'd be lying.
There's very little Mexican about this. Tortillas make it Mexican? It's upscale foody-food. There's a chance it might actually be good, at least some of what they have. It won't be cheap.

not a fan, took forever to even be acknowledge, the wine we had was okay ( when we finally got it.) and after it was pored by the bartender,he took the bottle and put it on ice. That was nice, but, we finished our glass and could not get his attention so we sat with empty glasses for a long time,( 15 min or so) maybe it was just a bad night for them,I'm not really sure.
Adriana & Shaun: It is heartwarming to hear someone is standing up to the protagonists of Pima County. Whatever that means.
...and did the Tea Party "types" draft the pile of crap legislation that we refer to as "Obama don't care?
Wake up wacko and smell the liberals. They are rotting from the head.
Menu looks great! Graphics look awful, who did the design? Someone who's main gig is MMA flyers and havasu beach party posters?
Great info! Thank you.
Nelson Mandella was not an American so Obama's orders to lower American flags should absolutely be ignored. Obama is so out of touch with Americans. That’s why Joe Arpaio ignored Obama's orders and he is not the only American to do so. Barack and Michelle can travel to South Africa to pay their respect. He can pack Air Force 1 with Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan, etc. for the trip to South Africa. Mandela was a great man who stood up to apartheid and eventually became president of South Africa but it's a South African affair and Obama and his entourage can celebrate there all they want.
Our neighbors to the north sure love them some Arpayaso. Never mind that a majority of county jail inmates are "innocent until proven guilty" and awaiting (fair) trial dates. Maricopa right wingers too busy banging their 2nd amendment drums, they forgot to read the 5th and 6th..
In reading the examples - it doesn't appear to be "another mexican place"
