Re: “Guest Commentary

Hello, Mr. Jaobs.I am surprised of how you have compared the rich and the poor in the city of Tucson. I am a product of the school district of Sunnyside. It is sad that many have viewed the southside of Tucson already as a criminal,destructive, and dangerous place. However, I can say the same thing with Catalina Foothills. I believe the only reason why their isnt so much negative comments from their is because of the same reason Rich Vs. "Poor". Have you ever heard of survival of the fittest?. Maybe thats why are education has been affected. So many Budgets Cuts ,could it be true that we are poor and that the rich do have more privalages. But do we have the same values. Maybe thats why we are treated as "lower class" because they have handed alot of opportunities to the rich.Im not writing for a debate but to give my opinion on your article if thats ok. I have graduated and now currently going to college. I wouldnt change what district or neighborhood I grew up in. It has made me the person I am today. I think the diffrence of sunnyside school district and others is that, for instance my teachers werent my teachers but my ficilitators, and no matter the circumstances that we have been brought up in, I believe we have learned alot.So you say that the middle school kids were being disruptive? and you couldnt get their attention?... Chaparral middle school? and you said that Sunnyside high school looked like a jail?, I went to chaparral middle school, and I graduated from Sunnyside High School, You cant assume just because of a group of kids. I believe if we really did care what was going on and dislike the way such like "poor" are being brought up then why not make a diffrence? why not get out of our comfort zone. why not be equal?.. not for pity or campassion but to have a better society and have a just and fair education in Tucson Arizona. Catalina might be a better school in many ways, but its not perfect and neither is Sunnyside.-Karla
