I would love to see Michael Gordy elected to the position of Pima County Superintendent of Schools! His dedication to public education is well known. He puts his words into action. Please vote for this highly-qualified educator!
Ethan Orr is in the NRA's back pocket. He needs to be replaced by Dr. Randy Friese, someone who sees first hand the devastating effects of our current gun laws. Dr. Friese will fight for responsible gun safety legislation. Mr. Orr votes AGAINST background checks for guns, and votes FOR ‘guns everywhere’ bills. It's time for a big change: Vote for Friese AND Steele for Southern Arizona!
Desert Magpie, re-read Matt's post and look at the initials of what he calls the streetcar system....It's a J-O-K-E!! ;)
cempiremtn, I am a Liberal Democrat totally opposed to Common Core (and I am not alone). It is the first time ever that I have agreed with Michelle Malkin on anything, and probably the last, but this program crosses all political lines. It has one goal: to turn the general population into perfect little worker bees, to serve the elite like Bill Gates and corporations like Pearson. As more & more people become more aware and informed of all the data that is being gathered on every student being tested across the nation, and who has access to that data, more and more parents will say "Not my child!" and opt out of the testing, thereby invalidating the results. The more states are learning about Common Core, the more they are realizing that they jumped the gun, embraced those federal funds before they actually knew what they were signing up for, and some states are saying "No thanks!"...the price is too high, I won't do that to the students in my state, and they're opting out.
TFA is just one more way that public education is being destroyed. I am totally opposed to TFA and hope & pray that Sunnyside residents will stand up and say a loud "NO!!!!" to this proposal.
THANK YOU, fanciefoodie!!! Your post was truthful and helps people understand the great disservice TFA is doing to education, especially in the areas with the poorest students. Marana is very lucky to have you working for them! Again, thank you for your honest personal experience with TFA.
"Maybe if these kids were out on the streets protesting the recent case of the Supreme Court of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission that lifts the ban on aggregate campaign donations, which further allows wealthy donors to buy our politicians in the name of "free speech", than I might have a little more compassion for these kids. However, they were out there because of a game, a freaking game. I wish our college kids, and country in general, cared as much about their politicians and who owns them as they do about sports. I think we be living in a lot different country...a better country."
