Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

"Frances Perkins" why don't you write under your own name, so we can understand what your actual role in local and state politics is?

You say, "The obsession with Sanchez is a treatable condition. I have broken bread with him at a state meeting. I can confirm he does not have horns growing out of his head."

What a howler. Do you actually think that whatever impression you may have gotten of that miscreant while "breaking bread with him at a state meeting" is relevant, or will persuade anyone who has read your ignorant and prejudiced commentary -- or followed Sanchez's actual track record in office -- for the past several years to think well of him?

But you are right, the "obsession" with Sanchez is treatable: it is treatable by judicious surgery to remove a demonstrably dishonest, incompetent, ignorant, greedy, malfeasant public administrator from the role he has occupied that has allowed him to damage TUSD -- perhaps irreparably at this point -- for the past three years. Many hope to see that surgery performed -- by his own hand or by that of others -- shortly after the November elections take place. One just hopes the patient in which he and his ilk have been growing like a cancer for the past three years will survive the operation.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Wow, I made a sleep walking troll slip. My doucheness is beyond my control. Everyone with a functioning brain knows that it is the GREEDY Old School Conservative White Privileged Sect that controls education in this God Forbidden state. The "illegals" could easily multiply by 10, it still wouldn't do 1% of the damage that Greedy, Ignorant, Asinine, kNownothing Tyrant Shitheads (GIANTS, get it?) do EVERYDAY day. I have finally, with the benefit of medication, pulled my head out of my ass. Please join me on my journey to greatness.

The National Academy of Sciences just released a study showing the annual fiscal burden across local, state, and federal government imposed on taxpayers by immigration is $43 billion - $299 billion.

Wouldn't be a shortage if the seats weren't filled with children of illegals. And there would be TONS of money for our children.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Flowing Wells has a truly great man, Jim Love. It's funny, the history of Floing Wells and Amphi is that large ranch owners essentially picked their own district boundaries for tax and control purposes. By the way I am a property tax payer in TUSD. The obsession with Sanchez is a treatable condition. I have broken bread with him at a state meeting. I can confirm he does not have horns growing out of his head.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Hey, "Frances Perkins," why does Flowing Wells have a much smaller % of teacher vacancies than TUSD?

Following your logic, it must be because they pay their teachers much more than TUSD.

Oops, no -- that's not it.

Getting a lot of hits from Adelita and Kristel and Cam's Facebook friends, David? I bet whenever anyone raises the issue of all the teacher vacancies in the district (and all the classrooms on the West side filled with subs) the three rubber stampers of all-things-HT-Sanchez link one of your lame blogs to "demonstrate" to their ignorant supporters that none of this is their fault (or $500K-per-year-HT's fault).

Too bad there's no vetting of valid information in this publication. Whoever "oversees" your work (IS there anyone? Mari Herreras: hello? anyone home?) obviously has no conscience whatsoever in the area of ensuring the readership of their sad publication is not misled by bad, tendentious, and self-servingly selective "information."

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

No matter what rhetoric ensues, the reality on the ground is, school districts throughout Arizona cannot fill teaching jobs. And guess what "choice" geniuses, charter school turnover is also huge. Hard to make a profit unless we pay teacher very little, even with the "voluntary" teacher improvement donation funds. Western Arizona districts lose scores to California and Nevada every year. Indian communities all over the State have a very difficult time filling jobs, even as they try to grow their own, and plug the gap briefly with international teachers. Funny how the "market based" solutions advocated by the right never apply to the teacher shortage. How many teacher candidates would we have if the Statewide starting salary was $50,000 with benefits?

Then move to Hawaii. Obama's home state is worse. 8 years squandered just to give away the internet.

No, I leave that for you, the personality I would rather not have.

I must make an appointment with the Doctor to get some stronger or different medications. I can't believe that I'm actually arguing with myself online.

Re: “Katy Perry: Back At It Again With The Tucson Reference

You must be the impostor.

But since we're both too chicken shit to establish an actual account on this site, nobody will truly know the difference.

Sorry, the meds are wearing off and I'm starting to argue with one of my other personalities.

Imposter What, Again - you seem to make a habit of stalking along with your identity problems.

Do you also hang out at elementary schools stalking?

I understand what you're getting at Debra L, but you gotta admit, Peabo was right about TTT (The Tangerine Tyrant) getting beat like an orange rug.

Whether you agree with Peabo or not, you at least have to admit he's clever.

Have a nice evening and please try to stay open minded.

Re: “Katy Perry: Back At It Again With The Tucson Reference

What, Again you might need some more medication for this one...

http://www.mediaite.com/online/chelsea-clinton-criticizes-trump-for-invoking-her-dads-past-juanita-broaddrick-responds/

Plus it looks like Madonna is taking her clothes off for Hillary. Is this something that Trump doesn't know about yet? Does it include Rosie O'donnell?

Up the meds What, Again.

Re: “Katy Perry: Back At It Again With The Tucson Reference

I'm not hating What, Again. I honestly don't know you. But Peabo constantly slanders posters and with him there is no middle ground. I would never make fun of a person on medication, like Howard Dean did. And he is a doctor.

You get some rest and see how you feel about it tomorrow.

Check out our President trying to scare people into voting for Hillary. How embarrassing he must stoop this low for a Clinton. Mr Obama, at this point what do you have to lose?
