You're right! 150 openings because all the (anonymous) great teachers will be fired for not "playing ball." Thanks, Obama!

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

I thought I made it simple. I was responding to "maggie", an alleged teacher, who feared for her alleged job for not "playing for the home team." I know that all committed educators long for good teachers. I repeat that the good teacher "fired or forced out" due to PC/political reasons does not exist. But I'd love to be proved wrong.

Final Score will be Arizona 31-28

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

So, one community rep didn't keep her position. That settles it. It's a progressive conspiracy! As President Obama said to Trump (commenting on his ruling on the Meat Loaf/Gary Busey controversy), "Well handled, sir!" My point is simple. My wife, Andrea Rickard, is an amazing teacher. Many teachers are not. Any teacher (or person) that believes that smart, effective teachers are "getting fired or forced out" of their job is either: a) not a teacher, b) a very poor teacher, c) lying, d) delusional, or e) some combination of the above.

But, on the bright (and factual) side, the Cats are winning.

I will gladly and humbly "eat my words" if I'm given actual evidence of ANY competent TUSD teacher "getting fired or forced out" for their principled refusal to "play on the home team."

Maggie, you fascinate me strangely. You're a "teacher" at TUSD. Yet there is an "ominous cloud" that hangs over you because you fear "retribution." I trust that your "students" are not adversely affected by your fear of Sanchez's black helicopters crashing through your "classroom."

As a neutral observer in this fight, could someone explain to me why the pro foster/cam posts are from actual identified people....and the other side posts by (simplistic/reductive/dishonest) screen names? (save for the perpetually aggrieved janitor)
