Me thinks you liberal commenters are just mad that NO ONE wants to listen to a progressive talk radio show. You may now put your heads back into your posterior.

Another bone-headed programming move. Conservatives are too busy working to pay taxes. They don't have time to listen .

As I understand it, fossils were put on Earth by God to test our faith. Gay people on the other hand, are just people who make bad decisions-unless they're decorating something...or someone.

Re: “A Multi-Layered Tale Of Teacher Layoffs, Seniority And Test Scores

The best high school that I ever worked at had a culture where the best and most experienced teachers took at least a couple of the most challenging classes to teach. The kids loved having them as teachers and the teachers themselves often felt rewarded by the progress of those students. It does work.

Re: “Seth MacFarlane and His Peculiar Distaste For Tucson

Hey, I lived in Tucson for five glorious years during college and I've been taken back as well. But there could be a silver lining. Maybe less snowbirds will go to Tucson. Think about it. Seth is vindictive. That's one of the things that makes him funny. Something happened that he decided to take his wrath out on Tucson. I would love to know what happened.

Re: “Ed Shorts: "Opt Out Of Standardized Testing" Edition

The opinion from one of Horne's assistant AGs that testing is not a "learning activity" which allows parents to opt out of activities they believe to be harmful is extremely weak. (It may be telling that her opinion came in the form of a letter from her to someone at ADE and that Horne has not issued a formal opinion, which would be published and compiled with all formal AG's opinions.) She relies upon a 1997 AG opinion which in turn relied upon some statutory provisions that have since been repealed. Also, the 1997 opinion did not consider the situation that we face today, where parents have a good faith belief that testing is harmful for their children. The concern in 1997 was whether parents would opt out their kids who might score poorly and thus make the school's performance look better than it is. In today's atmosphere of testing mania, the spirit of the statute allowing parents to opt out of learning activities that they deem harmful certainly seems to apply to testing.

TUSD did the easy and cowardly thing by latching on to the letter from the asst. AG, rather than act in the best interests of kids. I suggest interested people listen to the parents on the Hiller show Dave posted. TUSD has forced kids to either refuse the test on their own when they return to school after the testing days or stay out of school for 3 weeks. That TUSD would bully children in this manner is the best evidence I've seen that testing mania is sick and out of control.

Re: “Seth MacFarlane and His Peculiar Distaste For Tucson

Actually I think we owe MacFarlane a big thank you. I take it as mostly a well deserved jab at our political leaders and if we can have a few less folks from the east coast moving here....that's a good thing. Would love to see Tucson be half it's current size. But that's me.

Re: “Seth MacFarlane and His Peculiar Distaste For Tucson

The reason for McFarlane's "hate boner" for Tucson has little to do with Mike Barker and everything to do with a batch of imbeciles from the U of A who became offended by The Cleveland Show and started a petition to get it canceled for its perceived racism/sexism/every other ism. You can thank that batch of sniveling, hyper-PC students for the drubbing Tucson has taken at various points over the past few years on The Family Guy.

Re: “Ed Shorts: "Opt Out Of Standardized Testing" Edition

Gee, We were told back in 2003, that annual testing would lead us to 100% student mastery by 2013. Are you telling us that teaching to the test and testing doesn't really produce learning? I'm shocked.

Re: “Ed Shorts: "Opt Out Of Standardized Testing" Edition

Apparently, though, our friend Tom Horne does not consider testing to be "learning material", thereby giving the schools/the state a huge loophole.
