Re: “The New Teacher Certification Rules: Is Everyone Else Wrong, or Am I?

As someone who was convinced that Trump was conspiring with Russians last Augustand talking about itI can relate to the slightly embarrassing position of calling everyone else wrong, and that nagging feeling of self doubt. But the operative word in graf one is "any" and your reading is certainly correct. The other reporting deserves a correction.

The net effect is that Arizona has decided to conduct an uncontrolled experiment in using trainers as teachers. Unfortunately, this may not prepare students for future learning. You only need to ask yourself how many terrible corporate trainers have wasted your time to know this is a risky plan. Or just count how many were good. That's a lot quicker.

Re: “The Weekly List: 12 Things To Do In The Next 10 Days

"Inspired by Arizona's SB1070 legislation (which many feel opens the door to racial profiling),"

Chelo, Chelo, Chelo! Don't let bigots coerce you into qualifying their racism as just someone's opinion. It's easy to slip back into old journalism, but the times need the new standard, even during innocuous discourse.

Re: “"Martha McSally Is Not Answering"

Like most Repunblican Representatives, McSally has know suffered all of the negatives of talking up a bogus healthcare bill with none of the benefits of passing it. What a dumb strategic move.

Re: “Danehy

Being from DC, my wife and I are constantly amused by what's considered rush hour here. But we're very pleased.

Re: “The Skinny

The dispute doesn't tell you much. But her subsequent misbehavior tells you everything you need to know.

Re: “Letter to the Editor

Right. All of the writer's concerns are fair. But she treads into speculation with "impossible ways" and the idea that the current felony system is superior to an imperfect legalized system. And while it may be true that this system will advantage deep pocketed investors over mom and pop entrepreneurs, it would be naive to expect any other proposition to avoid this, especially in a state that is firmly in the hands of Republicans.

Progress is progress.
