Re: “Arizona Republic Editorial Gets Most of the Way There on Increasing Education Funding

David W everyone pays sales and property taxes. Most analyses show that on average most Americans pay 20-25% of their total income on taxes of some form. Get a new talking point about the poor- they pay their share of taxes according to their ability to pay.

Re: “An Ethan Orr Supporter Sticks Up for His Candidate

I hear this argument regularly- you need to vote for a Republican because they are the majority in the legislature, nothing gets done. Well if we believe that it will always be true.

Re: “BASIS and University High Are Top U.S. High Schools, Which Means . . .?

To Jeff Nadeau et al.

If a doctor required all patients to walk up 5 flights of stairs to get to his office, I imagine his patients would be healthy and live longer. This would have little to do with the doctor's medical skills or ability to diagnose patients. Would you consider this doctor a good doctor or a shrewd doctor? Would you prefer to go to this doctor or one actually good at diagnosis and care?

The measure of a school should be the difference in cation it makes in a students life. It is not clear that UHS and BASIS do not simply skim the smart hard working kids who have no problems in their lives. Picking these kids makes them lok good but it is unclear that they really represent a delta in their students lives.
