Re: “Let's Hear It For Teachers In Red, and a State Budget In the Black

Nice to see the prodigal republican coming in to defend his former masters who continually work to gut and destroy the reputation of Arizona's educational system (whatever is left of it anyway).

Arizona ranks 50th (!) in elementary school teacher pay and 49th (!) in high school teacher pay despite that fact we are ranked 21st in the US in terms of GDP. Why stay in a state that cannot pay you a competitive wage? Why stay in a state that can barely muster the political will to make sure you aren't taking pay cuts year-after-year due to cost of living increases? Why stay in a state that would rather steal from its posterity than find the funding to make sure its school system is adequately funded?
Performance pay? How are we supposed to reward exceptional teachers exceptionally when we won't even pay them averagely?

Re: “Student Housing Shakedown

"Former state lawmaker Demion Clinco, now serving as executive director of the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation, said that the developers are not from Tucson and their project would take income away from locals who rent to students. His comments were met with emphatic applause."

This is hilarious. Why exactly should students have to subsidize slum lords who are happy to leave there asbestos filled, swamp cooled blight in a perpetual state of neglect? Maybe this will force them to lower prices or improve there homes.

Sorry, but this is the kind of development that we need. Its in a high density, walk-able area close to UA. Tucson is a city of million people not a glorified retirement community and its time we start acting like it.
