Only when I read comments from dead from the neck up people like Margo or you.
Hyperbole much, CW?
Rick says: Here's another of BG's nicknames: Pancho Villa, given to him by the adoring son of Pete, who ran a great seafood restaurant near the docks at Rocky Point. Bill was an original, an "it" guy way before the age of hashtags.

I remember when you complained about the POTUS suing AZ to stop enforcing our laws.
Second thought...no you didn't.
“The results reveal that the charter school sector is getting better on average and that charter schools are benefiting low-income, disadvantaged, and special education students,” says Dr. Margaret Raymond,director of
CREDO at Stanford University.
Great press release. I can't remember if you told us that it was at Stanford.

I'm not sure looking at the "market" for publicly supported K-12 education is terribly important. In the case of both school districts and charter schools students and their parents have little or no financial exposure resulting from their choice - both are essentially provided at no cost to them. It is important that their choices be informed by available information on the schools and charters they are investigating and selecting from.
As a parent I would want to know if my child will be taught by experienced and licensed teaching professionals with degrees and experience in their subject matter. Some charter schools focus heavily on subject matter expertise, others do not. Some districts employ full time substitutes with little or no classroom experience, others do not.
The information publicly available on individual schools (district and charter) is limited to grades on standards based tests of student achievement, almost entirely skewed by the demographics of the student populations attending them. There are no transparent school assessment systems focusing on school quality. e.g experience and qualifications of teachers, administrators, classroom facilities, teaching technologies available and employed.
As a result the "market" is reactive. Parents know the schools their students are doing a great job and have a strong cadre of teachers and administrators and, like Lake Wobegone, all the kids perform above average. They remain in place. Other parents see their schools as pits of failure with a revolving door of inexperienced and substitute teachers led by mediocrities. They elect to flee to what they hope is higher ground. Without specific information on who is leading and instructing in the schools, the former parents are making a safe bet and sound decision; the latter parents are in danger of escaping the frying pan for the fire.
It's funny that I I am finding are happy parents and students graduating. You would think that with all the negative articles about charter schools parents would be flocking back to public schools.
TUSD enrollment drops again.
It would be nice if we could focus our efforts on improving the public school system in Tucson. But apparently our time and money must be spent on trying to get them to obey the law.
Especially difficult when you can only win if you buy into the USBG.
Awesome! So glad to see the Chicha Dust correction at the end. I was screaming at my monitor there for a bit.
Margo. You'd be crabby too if you had the brains to realize that morons like Raul and Obummer are going to bury this once wonderful country with their socialist policies. Illegal has nothing to do with minorities.
Racist, bastardization of high quality lit. Lacks a basic understanding of African Americans as well as humanity. Fuck this person in the ass with a cactus :)
However, this is not a list just for the sake of making a list. This was voted on and awarded by people who work in the industry. While the bests overall may be debatable, this is the best as voted by their colleagues, which should carry weight.
What gives the Governor and Legislature the right to use my tax dollars to sue the Federal Government? Even if I agreed with their emotional outbursts, these frivolous lawsuits are pointless.
My goodness - aren't we all crabby this morning?
Nice to know, though, that the 4 comments above do not represent a majority point of view in this wonderful nation where the protection of minorities remains supreme.
Legislation like this just just proves that the Republicans are no better than the Democrats, both being all about control of other people's lives. I am glad the Court keeps slapping them down.
A pox on both your houses.
This traitorous POS will support illegal homosexuals and then sends millions of tax $ to the Taliban for medical supplies so that they can heal up and get back out on the battlefield to kill our soldiers. Grijalva is as bad or worse than the Muslim lover in the Wh.
when it comes to selling our our country! When the SHTF, he needs to have a "come to Jesus type meeting" with some of our patriots! Not even his Mex. cartel paid for security will be able to stop that from happening!!
Remember when medication meant "administration of remedies"? Sadly it now means- drugs that murder babies.
1. administration of remedies.
Something, such as medicine or therapy, that relieves pain, cures disease, or corrects a disorder.
I'm sorry to hear about this, but honestly, when I moved back to Tucson and was shocked to find that the Mosque was utterly surrounded by these brand-new undergraduate apartment monstrosities, I had to chuckle at the inevitability of such a clash. The zoning department sure does have a poor sense of humor. Then again, the dress code of undergraduates offends most decent people within a three-mile radius around campus anyway!
I really WISH this "mexican" would just GO back to Mexico.. because he's for ANYONE but US. .and Yeah.. Im an American of Mexican Descent... and so TIRED of "El Jeffe Grijalva" and his horrible representation of Americans. But, let an illegal, or a thug, or a "gay person" show up and MAN he's on his knees..
Yay! Moms to be don't have to be inconvenienced by a procedure to kill their babies! Woot woot! FORWARD!
