The problem is not with our schools but rather parents. With attendence rates down to under 85% - do not think kids are sick twice as much today as in the 50s when I was in grade school - hard to get a continuium. Johnny does not read because mom and dad often do not read, nobody is at home when junior gets home, and kids with active involved parents go to charter schools or they find a public school in a neighborhood with involved parents.
Ducey blunder - not really. Schools have just continued downward as parents and kids would rather sell drugs and live off mom and dad.
Hard to make a comment to this potentialy libelous article that would be published. Portland is a lovely downtown with lots of yuppie restaurants and pretty buildings. Too bad Oregonians do not understand that people do not need a socialist state to both survive and prosper. Arizona gets that part pretty well and we enjoy our ethnic diversity in both cuisine and people
