@Postimpressionist You reached the wrong conclusions from your four sources. I actually only needed one source, the CA Dept of Education, to prove your conclusions wrong. Once again, I'll explain it to you. The Special Education (no quotes. It's a real thing), category with the most students in California is speech and language. Not intellectual disability.
Concluding that certain countries have people with low IQs is really ugly.
@postimpressionist re: Your Malasian IQ study that the brightest should be educated the best.
Here's some pushback from other researchers:
"IQ in this study is represented by cognitive skills, in which the rise in the IQ level brings about more efficiencies, thus potentially producing a higher productivity with the same amount of resources (i.e., doing more with less).
This justifies our finding that all three IQ classes have a significantly positive effect on economic growth, suggesting that the intelligence level is a fundamental component of all economic
activities, embracing both the high- and low-skilled labor forces, with the high-skilled labors having the largest impact on productivity."
@Postimpressionist re: Special Ed services in CA.
The majority of children receiving Special Ed services in CA receive services for speech and language impairment. Nice try making it seem as if those children are intellectually impaired. Guess what! Making statements that Latinos and Arabs have lower IQs is........racism. (I noticed you had no link for your IQ statements.) It's always good to get your info from more than one source and actually read the research with an open mind. http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/se/sr/cefspeced.a…
Sessions said, "Good people don't smoke marijuana."
The majority on the TUSD Board must be broken up and replaced with independent thinkers. There are several qualified candidates. None of the incumbents should be re-elected.
Too old. He's always said stupid stuff. Remember "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran? " He also shamelessly and cynically brought stupid people, like Sarah Palin, into national politics. People don't improve w/ age in their 80's. Anyone who has taken care of elderly relatives knows this.
Anyone who's paying attention to the ongoing controversies, should see that the incumbents cannot provide adequate oversight over the HT Sanchez administration. HT's employment is dependent on the current board majority, so he is doing everything in his power to keep them elected. He even spent over $1600 (of our tax dollars) for a half page ad in the AZ Daily Star to counter an unflattering essay, written by Tim Steller, about how the district handled 301 monies. Our kids deserve TUSD's focus to be on them. Their education, their needs, their good outcomes. None of this can occur under the current board majority or with HT Sanchez at the helm.
