Re: “How's the New 'Anyone Can Teach in Arizona' Law Working Out So Far?

This state has had a Republican legislature for the last 24 yrs, and a Republican governor for 20 out of the last 26 yrs. Public education is not a priority for them, and the GOP here in AZ is not smart enough to figure out that strong public schools help create a vibrant economy and attract business. The voters keep sending the same kind of people to the legislature, so unless those people change, nothing will change.

Re: “Doug Ducey, CEO

My favorite Ducey bait and switch is the state paying for full-day Kinder, but only if the district as a whole has above a 90% free or reduced lunch rate. TUSD and Sunnyside get nothing, but 29 charter schools qualified.

Re: “Can Voters Defeat the Vouchers-For-All Law?

You also cannot abbreviate the name of the city, or write with anything other than a blue or black ball point pen. And yes, cursive letters that go below the line will make your signature invalid. The intent of the lege is on full display.

"unwavering commitment to her constituents?" Hilarious.

Re: “Tucson Unified School District Makes a Statement

@Postimpressionist You reached the wrong conclusions from your four sources. I actually only needed one source, the CA Dept of Education, to prove your conclusions wrong. Once again, I'll explain it to you. The Special Education (no quotes. It's a real thing), category with the most students in California is speech and language. Not intellectual disability.
Concluding that certain countries have people with low IQs is really ugly.

Re: “Tucson Unified School District Makes a Statement

@postimpressionist re: Your Malasian IQ study that the brightest should be educated the best.
Here's some pushback from other researchers:
"IQ in this study is represented by cognitive skills, in which the rise in the IQ level brings about more efficiencies, thus potentially producing a higher productivity with the same amount of resources (i.e., doing more with less).
This justifies our finding that all three IQ classes have a significantly positive effect on economic growth, suggesting that the intelligence level is a fundamental component of all economic
activities, embracing both the high- and low-skilled labor forces, with the high-skilled labors having the largest impact on productivity."
