Re: “A Comparative Look at TUSD's AzMERIT Scores

I too wonder what is the comparative data on length of teaching experience and advanced degrees held between the schools. I do not definitively know the differences between districts, but I do know in TUSD especially during the previous administration, a great many experienced teachers left, and in many cases left early. I do know we have an unreasonably high proportion of classes taught by subs and under qualified and less experienced teachers than used to be the standard in our district. There is more study to be done on this subject. Perhaps, David, you can find some grad students who would be interested.

Re: “Mexican American Studies: What's Next?

This will be a real test of the current board which has many problems to deal with, including a new superintendent who is rebuilding an administrative team under battlefield board conditions. Could definitely affect the next board elections. Wait and see.

Re: “Open Season

It might be easier to make a list of those NOT running for McSally's seat.

Re: “Tucsonans Travel to D.C. To Argue Against the Republican Tax Bill

I guess McCain may be more influenced by helping his family avoid taxes upon his imminent death than by worrying about the education of his constituents at PCC and UA., etc.

Re: “The Skinny

AVL, the simple explanation is this. The County Administrator is the employee of the Board of Supervisors as an entity, not the employee of a single supervisor. The Board of Supervisors as an entity is a body comprised of at least 3 affirmative votes. When any Supervisor is a lone vote, whether for good or ill, they are NOT the employer, just a member of the Board. Which is why to accomplish business of any type, learning to work with your peers is essential.

Re: “The Skinny

I was struck by the comment that she performed better than expected during her first term. Were their expectations low because she was a woman? But better than whomever? Not currently impressed by her general performance over all in the interests of the non-military middle class community in her district. What exactly has she done to make our lives better?
