Was this an April Fools Day joke? You people are sick.

Jerry Kelly - if her injury reduced her mental capacity or otherwise caused mental illness she'll be a liberal.

If she had a head injury how would we tell the differences?

Re: “Another Look at the BASIS School Enterprise

How about comparing Basis student demographics to the demographics of the 65 NYC public middle schools that are allowed to select students and that admit less than 1 in 10 of the students who apply?

http://www.businessinsider.com/nyc-middle-schools-tougher-to-get-into-than-harvard-2014-10

Care to do some public records requests to highlight the demographics of those 65 schools, David, or would that rub you the wrong way, ideologically speaking?

Or perhaps you could do additional public records requests to force transparency of admissions requirements to selective NYC public schools outside of NYC District 2, where an advocacy organization recently FINALLY, after years of effort, forced disclosure of the schools' un-transparent admissions rubrics:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20161109/upper-east-side/district-2-middle-school-applications-rubrics-released.amp

Does Carol Burris know about the existence of these schools? If so, where is the outrage...or is selectivity / exclusiveness in populations served by schools applying public funds just fine when those schools operate within the public district system? Just not when they operate within the (shudder) Arizona public charter system.

Really tired of the hypocrisy and the false assumptions built into your propaganda, David. Among those false assumptions I include the notion that public district schools are some fabulous paragon of transparency, equity and democratic responsiveness to constituents served. They are NOT that, and anyone who cares to take even the most cursory look at their operations locally or nationally knows it damn well.

Re: “Another Look at the BASIS School Enterprise

How is it fair to compare BASIS student demographics to that of the ENTIRE State of Arizona?. How about comparing the schools to the surrounding neighborhoods or the districts in which they reside?

Re: “Have You Seen These Paintings? Cardenas Artwork Stolen From Former Bring Funeral Home Space

I agree with Rae, details were left undone, and now there are hard feelings and those of disrespect. If artwork is requested for display and the requester doesn't own it, each piece must have a plaque identifying the piece, artist, owner (if the artist no longer retains ownership), and price (if for sale). To not do so, is unprofessional and dishonest. It implies that the site owns the piece in private. The artist should have inspected the installation and insisted on identification and recognition of her pieces. There should always be a basic written agreement on dates, value, and responsibilities. The requester owes the artist the full amount for her work.

Re: “Have You Seen These Paintings? Cardenas Artwork Stolen From Former Bring Funeral Home Space

This is a huge lesson for artists and those who display their work. A lot of details were left undone, and now a theft has occurred. I hope the paintings are safely returned, and steps taken to create a more definitive written agreement for future exhibitions.
To the thief...stealing art brings the worst sort of karma. Return it, please.

Re: “Another Look at the BASIS School Enterprise

I think you are right about this particular School.
I will however continue to say that the Public School System is not for every kid. From personal experience they can be very rigid and unhelpful when dealing with different kinds of learners and kids with disabilities. Some charter schools are good options for kids/parents.

Could it be that they don't come here for vulgarity? just a thought. At the Star you can't get news, and at the Weekly you can't get decency.

The public is being starved, and for what purpose? It used to be that when adolescents matured they left their childish ways behind. Not here.

Good gravy. How can anyone be concerned about the use of an accurate, if vulgar, term used to describe an art thief, particularly in the Weekly? Did you just start reading this site?

Re: “Have You Seen These Paintings? Cardenas Artwork Stolen From Former Bring Funeral Home Space

First...
Stealing art is a serious offense and legal action should be taken or the paintings promptly returned. The artists spent time, talent and money on her work and the artist and the work deserve proper respect.

Second...
Until the end of the article the reporting and content appears to be factual and professional. Once the the vocabulary becomes jocular, for my interpretation, the credibility of the writing is compromised and unprofessional. Name calling, typically an immature practice rarely has positive results. The RANGE and TUCSON WEEKLY often report on content that is progressive, educational, in depth, ground breaking, revealing and interesting. Sadly wanting it both ways by using immature jargon erodes at the credibility of the content.

Yo, Ricky. You're really going to use "douchebag" in a comment where you fret about it's use? Amazing. Must be a product of Remedial Hipocrisy Academy.

And Concerned Mom, you must be absolutely exhausted from all that hand wringing. Grab a hammock and swing a bit, would you?

Thanks David. Look at their audit. They are now making "interest only" payments to some loan company at 11% interest with a big old balloon payment coming. Dig into their financials. Carol Burris.
