Re: “Ducey's Arizona: Jeff Spicoli and The Lego Movie meet The Stones meet Mark 16:15

Scary when one of the godless heathens at Tucson Weekly can quote scripture as well as Mike Huckabee. :)

Re: “Goldwater Institute Seeks Protection for Native American Children

Who is Jonathan Hoffman? A paid employee of the Goldwater Institute? This post is written like a GI press release.

Re: “The Interesting Story of Holsteiner Agricultural Charter School

Her's some simple math - $120K annually for rent for 60 students, $118K annually for the principal's salary for 60 students. Those are both administrative costs. That means each student is contributing $4,000 of their state per pupil expenditure to administration. That's well over 50 percent of state funding going to administration. Great scoop by David Safier, this seems on its face to be either fraud or gross mismanagement.

Re: “Doug Ducey: Board of Education Should Review Common Core, Not Kill It...Yet

It's interesting that while Ducey rails against the Common Core standards because they are "national", he cites NAEP, a test paid for by the federal government, to prove that AZ students are performing poorly. Presumably NAEP is based on some set of national standards. So he accepts national standards as part of the test, but not as the basis for the learning curriculum to help students do better on the national test? Ducey is demonstrating a completely incoherent philosophy driven entirely by Tea Party politics.

Re: “Network for Public Education Supports Those Who Opt Out

David, attending suburban Minnesota schools in the 60s and 70s the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) was an annual spring event. No high stakes involved, but principals and school board members certainly compared aggregate scores across the district.
