Horrorshow! So that's the LSD backstory!
It's August 2016 and the ads are incessant on NYC TV stations.
This is what making schools think like businesses lead to. Welcome to the ultimate charter school: no buildings, few expenses.
But if you're like Teeny above who thinks these charters can't last, John Oliver's expose on charter schools nationwide. Unless you admire the operators whose fiduciary (legal) responsibility is to the shareholders, and only the shareholders.
Excellent! My pale blue Torino was a 1970! hahahaha
Asked at the LD 10 House Clean Elections forum to describe a non-political professional accomplishment, Frogge explained her inability to do so because all her professional career has been in the political realm. Her most recent professional connection has been with the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, which appears to have no visible presence -- no office, phone number, web connection -- in Southern Arizona. Engel appears much better prepared to serve the people of the district, given her years of real world experience and accomplishments. And returning Stefanie Mach to the legislature is a must.
To: Clearer understanding
You comment points out the paradox of measurement. If you are running a high quality education system, test scores will go up. Yet, at a classroom, school and district level, focusing on test scores does not produce a high quality system. After 40 years of getting the system to become ever more and more focused on test scores the bankruptcy of that approach couldn't be clearer.
Learning is all about motivation. The unmotivated brain literally can not learn. And, motivation is all about emotion. Measuring motivation or derivatives of motivation is the future of education. That is why I advocate measuring parent, teacher and student perception of excellence.
Gallup has developed an amazing "Hope Engagement and Well Being" question set. Teach Like a Champion also has an amazing question set.
When I was on a school board, I chose a more laser like approach - one question. "Please rate the quality of education your child is receiving." for parents with a scale starting at "Outstanding". Nationwide, about 9% of parents rate the quality of education their child is receiving as outstanding, a higher standard than excellence. People get very uncomfortable when the quality of what they are doing is rated at 9% and as a result of that discomfort, they begin to change i..e Improve.
Most school districts interpret their parent satisfaction surveys in a way that validates current practices (TUSD) and as a result, produce no change. The current percentage of parents rating their child's school excellent nationwide is 24%, 1 point away from the lowest level in 47 years.
We have the very best food this side of the border. I have lived here since May of 1972. My husband and I drove 5 & 1/2 days, across the United States, from Rockford, Illinois. The temperatures were 22 below zero, the last February we were there! We looked at each other and said Let's get the hell out of HERE! So we packed up a few of my Son's toys, a few dishes, and clothes. Piled up in our year old pale blue 1971 FORD TORINO, my Son was teething, the entire trip, (no car seats back then I held him in my lap! ) and headed out West, and never looked back. The first food we had was Taco Bell. Lol over time my husband, self-taught Chef, made the most elaborate meals of Mexican cuisine! Every holiday was a feast. I became a Baker at a local hospital, between the two of us, as our Family expanded, the meals were shared with friends, from my Husband's School where he taught Art. Everyone remembers the lavish meals we produced. Sheldon Lee Koester, was a teacher at Drachman Primary Magnet School and taught for 18 years before he passed away on Cinco De Mayo, 2000. We came here for his health, and I have NEVER regretted choosing Tucson over Phoenix. the Sonoran Desert is the most beautiful place in Arizona! Sheldon loved his new home here. he worked with all of his new found friends, through the parents, teachers and students in The BARRIO. We love the culture, and pleasant ways of all the people we love and Tucson is such a friendly place. not too long ago, I lived in Phoenix for 5 months, uh, it cannot hold a candle to us!!! My husband used to frequent the restaurants, bakeries around the downtown area, have lunch dates with all his fellow colleagues, and he is truly missed. NO, I would never trade our triple digits for that Chicago weather with it's 40 degrees below zero with the wind chill factor, !!! Tucson is my permanent home!!!
Continue your constant drip, drip, drip, of negativity. But at this point what have we got to lose? 40+ years of Democratic control have left us last in just about everything. Something you need to answer for.
I'm sorry, we are first in drug and human trafficking of and by illegals.
Uhaul trucks are not used to move high tech firms. What low tech thinking. You are really stuck aren't you?
Just looking at this carrot/caveat depending on conception of understanding of 6 plants. what does that mean? Is that really definitive?
Anyone who has grown more than 2 harvests inside knows it's a joke the yield is so small per plant it would hardly be a market force. Would hardly be a addicted user supply chain Dispensaries and agents know this too.
Rules to be written will do what several state tried and Maine votes rejected. The Point of sell for clones only certain clone will be sold through to be nego, (tbd) outlets.
When a person obtains a clone from a licensed taxing agent. It will be given a tag good for so long. A person will have to apply for and sign a agreement to forgo all rights property & search rights to allow compliance of the agreement.
Basically a Retired police/compliance officer come to the door and says we are here to look at your grow. Retired police that are still in good standing with the DPS license to be a police officer in the state. They are still police carry weapons and can do all the police functions up to Swat Team's.
It also seems inconceivable 6 plants as a definitive amount. I know several older people in rural that would allow family member to obtain and grow 12 plants on their rural property. Outside the harvest could go on for 2 months or better culling the buds much bigger harvest. Then you have the guy trying to save a buck by buying a tent and some lights. hardly equivalent of each other . A stalk of corn grown in a closet or one grown in the field what's going to yield more? Can you just imagine the cost to police that, it will be added onto the price at point of sale.
Yea the only person that would vote for this abortion of personal righs is he one going to the dispensary getting that oil based suppository and need instruction on the application.
User we have gone done the right thing getting MMJ. Some meeting with a legitimate doctor and to so regularly discussing the use I do. We have a force of 90,000+ we need to be heard not represented by the market forces. In Oct we will be present.
VOTE NO PROP 205 KEEPING PERSONAL RIGHTS
Mach and Engel!
Public Records belong to the public and may be seen.
A very good story on several points addiction & societal resulting in positions taken. The position ADRP will still be enforced Montgomery & Polk will be in a position to negotiate each of their counties. This is a no loss to the political contributions aspects to both.
If 205 passes every county attorney will be in a position to negotiate how marijuana will be enforced. What is now bundled together with Marijuana smoke shops, home growing. Just how does Polk lose, Montgomery can now negotiate on every aspect of what happens in the county.
The rules not even written kind of like we have to vote for it to see what comes. Some look at this as an opportunity others as the wolf in the hen house. Given the past history and how marijuana has been prosecuted. The industries that built and used to support and complement the enforcement, prosecution, probation, abuse counseling, incarnation. All of these industries will continue to flourish and feed off of marijuana prohibition. There will be no change just a new component to the feed chain of Marijuana.
The simple target is to limit the criminal and civil penalties to marijuana use. Prop 205 addresses the right to market and support it. With the criminal simple possession prosecution harshest in all 50 states where's the win for the user.
The AZ Marijuana user has complemented the existing industry to obtaining 90,000 plus MMJ licenses. Everyone know's that this is the distribution for the illegal market in AZ today.
It would not be unreasonable to ask this Market forced entity for relief. Relief from the Jack boot on the back of the neck of the consumer. Relief from frivolous prosecution relief of unreasonable search and enforcement. Repealing the criminal code 13-3405.
However repealing 13-3405 felony for simple possession to be negotiated at every turn. The market representatives know this only bolsters their market control and price. As you can see really nothing for the consumer but limited availability and the harshest persecution of you stray. Every user goes under the bus with this.
Arizona needs to decriminalize before it builds a market. Prop 205 does not do any of this and the representatives don't give a damn. This whole concept was drawn with the idea it could sell the concept of conservative voter base Sun city, Green Valley, Snowbird Capital. They missed the target there too the political profiling is not accurate or comprehensive.
All this does is build another new business feeding of the addiction of marijuana. With a new prohibition effort written by the collective rep of counties attorney's. It gives new laws on so many ancillary businesses that the county attorney's never had. New laws that the counties could not get representative in the legislatures to propose. What is bundled here is a pandora's box.
The Tucson Community Theater Company's performance of "The New American Candidate" runs for 3 weeks, not 3 days as the article states. Sept 14 through the 30th. Also, the writer had another typo, as "100 local talent" should be "100% local talent."
I was in favor of the other initiative which did not make the ballot. I am still not sure if I will vote for this one.
She refuses to turn over "pubic records"? I'm not sure I would, either.
Very weird ramblings. I assume you are trying to channel Daheny or Fitz, who try and disguise biased political commentary as humor.
However, it was a bit funny.
If you want to see New England type fall colors in Arizona, go down to the Chiricahua Mountains in southeast Arizona, and specifically go to Maple Camp.
This was a very weird column. Congratulations!
It's beyond me why anyone would bring jive Mexican facsimile food to the town that has the best Mexican fare in the U.S. That photo just screams ranch dressing and salsa that tastes like spaghetti sauce. Oh well, people that frequent 4th Ave. are so stoned, they don't know what they're eating anyway.
