So gcbl, it sounds like you're opposed to the university high concept in general. It's my understanding that university high was established to give gifted students a faster track to run on so the rest of the pack wouldn't hold them back.
What will happen if these highly motivated students with lower aptitudes don't succeed? Will the teachers be blamed? Will TUSD insist on lowering university high's classroom standards too?
It takes me about 3 seconds to get through one of these. But then I've never had the misfortune to be behind some rich brat who's so full of herself that she doesn't mind holding up others for nearly 15 minutes.
Huppenthal and Horne did what Tucsonans lacked the good sense and courage to do.
Having done more than any other local journalist to expose the petty infighting and general ineptitude that characterizes the MAS/SES mob, shouldn't Mari Herreras be recognized with some kind of journalism award? And would it matter if she's never realized she's been doing it?
Ms. Herreras evidently can't see the forest for the trees. The rest of us are alternately amused and disgusted by the whole spectacle.
Well said, bslap.
Statistical disparities between racial and ethnic groups do not necessarily indicate racist motives. More explanation is needed.
Charles, you need to become a columnist. There are actualy a few of us out here who are interested in truth and facts regarding immigration. But you're right - nice people don't talk about these things, nor do they win elections.
