Re: “That Was Fast. Who's Behind the Douglas-Ducey Robopoll?

Well “gcb1” ...I apologize that I am not a shady “reporter” but rather I am actually RUNNING an elementary school so it's pretty busy over here. As I stated in my comment, feel free to call the school. In fact, come by the school and see how hard all of the Millers, and the rest of our amazing team of educators, are working and how many wonderful things are happening for children. While we walk around, I would be happy to use that time to dispel this very one-sided opinion loaded with its' own non- transparent motives. I can also connect you to a lot of parents from the past 19 years this school has been serving kids that would be happy to share why this environment is special to them.

The “Wild West Has Lost Its Charms”, FYI - it is in the AZ Constitution that a charter operator sits on the State Board of Ed…which is an UNPAID volunteer position. Not a conflict of interest. The Board itself voted Mr. Miller to be President. What an honor! Obviously there are, in fact, a lot of people who trust in his educational leadership.

Again...anyone is welcome to visit Challenge Charter School (and enroll as we do follow open enrollment practices!), a Title 1 Rewards school meaning we are doing an above average job of helping the very subgroups Glass implies we are segregating. How can anyone find value in an article clearly so biased and malicious? And then speak to ignorance...?!

Growth of students from the bottom percentiles to the top percentiles is also how a school becomes a Blue Ribbon School which we are. There are only .002% of those in the Nation. We can’t fake that. They are selected by the US Department of Education, not behind closed doors at a "ShadowFaction" conspiracy meeting.

Based on the unjustified attacks on our character, isn't it interesting that I am the only one commenting here willing to do so using my own name?

Re: “That Was Fast. Who's Behind the Douglas-Ducey Robopoll?

Shame on you Safier! These numbers are outdated and inflated just as they were when you attempted to slander Challenge Charter School and the Miller family in the past. Integrity is important in education and in journalism!! Challenge files as a public entity allowing you or anyone to view this tax information...Wouldn’t it make more sense to question some more corporate charter structures for which there are no numbers because they hire private companies "employed by" the charters in effect making their numbers private. I am NOT worried about a school that has kept all of their numbers public... I AM worried about a reporter who uses this type of venue to bully folks when his true agenda is left over hostility because his own political network of buddies got taken off the Board and replaced by Mr. Miller. Isn’t that what these bad feelings are really about? You weren’t interested in slandering the Democratic charter Board rep that had the seat prior? But that’s because the game is different when it is your friend? Me thinks the pot is calling the kettle black again. I would be happy to speak to anyone about the lies in this slander. Feel free to contact me to do so, Wendy Miller
