Re: “Danehy

Response to Hupp Needs to Vanish:

Did juveniles not murder 70 people in 1992?

Did they not murder 20 people in 2014?

Did our at-risk population not hugely increase?

Do well-run schools influence the social behavior of students?

Can teachers who care influence the social behavior of students?

Is the relationship between schools and parents in Arizona the best in the nation? Believe it or not, the answer to that question is possibly yes.

Re: “Alt vs. Indie

"We need to have the strongest possible city council to stand up for people and groups in Tucson that Donald Trump is attacking"
Uh, really don't need a city council person worrying about national politics while trying to run a city. Expect him to get elected and Tucson to sink further into the sewer.

Nothing like a little input from an idiot into a discussion about economics. It must suck being you. I assume that all you have to offer is a challenge to fight. I'll pass.

Re: “Danehy

Let me give you few new numbers. $5 trillion, the amount that the stock market, along with our 401ks, police pension funds,m and teacher pension funds have gone up since Trump surprised us and investors with his election.

The stock market hit a new peak of $28.6 trillion on the day that Trump announced his tax package.
All of Europe is worth less than $8 trillion.

Our stock market is forecasting over 5% growth for us while Europe's is forecasting less than 1% growth for them.

Wow, John, with that comment, you still are proving that you don't know anything about anything.

Keep up the shitty work.

Re: “Creepy and Kooky

Mike Padilla is actually the Music Director AND the Conductor for THE ADDAMS FAMILY - A NEW MUSICAL. Monte Ralstin is the Music Supervisor for the production, in addition to playing the role of Uncle Fester. Ralstin is the Music Director for the Theatre program. It can be confusing, but because he had an onstage role in ADDAMS...Ralstin just acted as Music Supervisor for this musical.

Re: “The Skinny

I have been an educator for 20 years. I have primarily taught Language Arts/Writing.

I have always taught my students to write what they felt... because in writing, we can express our hearts.

I told them if they needed to use words deemed "inappropriate", that they could spell them out as is, or they could write them as he** or sh*t or f*ck.

And I told them they couldn't do it in their future professional lives...

I didn't know that "fucks" and "bullshit" don't get automatically censored in the media. Mind. Blown.

Permission has been granted to expand on my narrative to students, and denounce the existing language registers (which I believe are classist).

Now I am remembering the first time I heard "fuck" on the big screen ("Robocop 2"), and the first time I heard a kid call their parents by their first names ("90210")...

Always rebels out there.

Re: “Danehy

Azmom,

Don't worry about the dislikes. When they are higher than 9, its because one person came through with an anonymizer and disliked you 15 times. Your 7 likes are very solid. Only about 1 in ten readers register an opinion.

Your experience with charter schools is typical of probably 70,000 parents whose children would never survive a district school.

We can see this huge effect in the social data. Since we started charter schools in 1992, murders by juveniles have dropped from 70 to 20 despite our at-risk population rising from less than 100,000 to more than 400,000.

And, it's not just murdering, it is all juvenile crime. Our juvenile detention centers in Arizona have just about vanished.

Re: “Best of Tucson® 2017

Best of list are always a joke.One was awarded the best in a category and it is a shell of its old self. did the staff even check to see see if some of these places even qualified for the category they won. Bet the list would look different if it was done while Uof A was on break.

Re: “Saving Sisley

Not to diminish the contribution of veterans and their devotion to the oath to country and sole. PTSD can be birthed in all parts of society personality managed and able. I dont believe it can be eradicated treated but socially understood. There is the Achilles heal to the whole of Marijuana therapy.

It is apparent that legalization is a strong consideration to diminish some of the social ill's from Alcohol. A lot less physically harmful not as extreme in over indulgence. For this approach no medical oversight but for epidemic study in conflict with medical completely.

Some are of the idea that no medical oversight let anyone grow and compassion of sole will render a benevolent society. Self medication by smoke lodge/drum/aroma therapy has benefits but not measurable consistent results.

There are so many aspects to marijuana. With the International WHO endorsed academics compiling decades of study from Diabetes, Autism, Neuroscience not to mention the placebo.

I would plead for anyone who has experienced or is PTSD to call. Remember it can be socially caused and enhanced PTSD is about fear and who/where represents it.

Re: “Danehy

Listen to Ronald Reagan ? I don't think so. According to the intellectually challenged ( is that better Mr. Corvi ?) writer of the above gibberish, Reagan was a total boob who hoodwinked us with " voodoo economics". I wish he had a pair and would be open to a debate with you on the subject. Now, that would be funny.

Re: “The Fed Tax Cut, AZ School Grades, Results-Based Funding, and a W.A.G.

sdotwarren, I think the 90% you're talking about is the percent of students who passed AzMERIT. That doesn't mean individual students got 90-out-of-100 on their scores. I don't know which BASIS campus your son attends, but looking at the AzMERIT scores, it's likely that something like 50% of the students in his school scored at the highest level. That means of the rest, 40% passed at a lower level and 10% didn't pass. It might be hard to evaluate the growth of the top half -- though remember, their growth is evaluated against other students who scored at the same level -- the other half would have many peers with similar scores in other schools across the state.
