Re: “Letter to the Editor: Support Education, Not Prop 123

There are so many misconceptions in this article. For someone who claims to be an advocate for public education, there are too many mistakes to take that claim seriously.

Re: “It's Time Once Again to Take a Look at This Year's "Best High Schools" List

Make Basis take all students and meet their many varied needs and levels of learning, and then let's compare. Basis does not take all students of varied abilities. Period.

Re: “Learn About the Pros and Cons Behind Prop. 123

Where were all of you when teachers and students were being shorted by the refusal of the state to pay the lawsuit that was filed six years ago and settled in our favor? Now I hear plenty of people up in arms about the proposition, but I didn't hear from many outside of education before this point about the matter.

Cheryl Griggs, I never stated that I tell people they should not become teachers. That was something someone else posted.

Rat T may I suggest that you read Teacher Wars? It is very enlightening and will provide you with some history.

Re: “Where Have All the Teachers-in-Training Gone?

Cheryl Griggs teachers cannot continue in their chosen profession if they cannot afford to support themselves. I drive a vehicle that is 25+ years old, live in a very affordable home, do not take vacations, and still had to borrow money from a family member to have surgery on my spine because my healthcare from my district has been cut so much due to cuts to education. I have not gotten even an inflationary increase in the past 6 years due to our great state of Arizona refusing to fund education as they have been court ordered to do, and now struggle to pay my utilities. I am a tenth year teacher in good standing who graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona. There is a difference between difficulties in the trenches and impossible to continue on and support oneself. I love teaching and I love my students; however, I also love my family and need to be able to support them. As a professional with a university degree I should earn enough to live modestly comfortably. It is not too much to ask. The people of Arizona need to stand up and say enough is enough. People like Rat T. have no idea what is going on or what the reality of it all really is.
