So nice to see a family that places a priority on education. I work at a high school where students are often tardy, absent, and very unmotivated. Their parents are busy with their own lives. The teens are often rude and disrespectful. It's sad.3 days ago
What? I'm so confused. Twenty students got merit scholarships? I thought Arizona schools were the worst, and not able to educate our children.
Well, somebody is able to pull it off, huh?
Congrats to these hard-working, motivated young people!4 weeks ago
Completely agree with you. The Phoenix area is filled with people who own their own business. Our high schools should be preparing motivated young people with the training and academics to do their own thing. Forcing college prep level classes on every student is discouraging, and we can only assume, causes many to give up and never finish.
Other countries already do this, only tracking about 20% of their high school students in college prep.1 month ago
Because we all know how much more humane commercial livestock operations are. I would much rather the cows I get my hamburger from are smashed in stalls, fed drugs and GMO food for their short, miserable lives before slaughtering them, so I can have a pink slime lunch.
Much better situation than killing wild animals for dinner.1 month ago
"Arpaio critics say the sheriff has put immigration enforcement above other police priorities, while the sheriff's supporters contend the effort is unconstitutional."
Maybe that because getting some control over illegal immigration has a large impact on most of the other LE issues.2 months ago
But loophole sounds shady so it can be applied to something someone doesn't like. If that's the case then the child and mortgage deductions are "loopholes".2 months ago
I've never understood why it's rare to see an IEP for a gifted student. They can have needs that are not being met in the classroom. Students can become behavioral problems when they are bored, which can impact their attitude about school in general.
So good to see Gilbert providing a challenging environment for those students.3 months ago
There are doctors already refusing to take on new Medicare and Medicaid patients due to small reimbursements. Some practices are directing Medicare/Medicaid patients to find other doctors, and are dropping them from their patient list.
How are the few doctors and facilities now taking the current patients going to add all the new people? More people and less doctors. How does that work?3 months ago
Why should it be harder to get an initiative on the ballot? If you get the required number of signatures, it still has to be voted on. If it wasn't a good idea, it won't pass.3 months ago
While it may be offensive to some that they made fun of a group close to your concern and heart, Mike & Molly make fun of everything and everyone. They make jokes out of every stereotype you can think of.
Mike's mother is sarcastic and obnoxious. Molly's mother and sister are rude, drink excessively, and her sister talks about smoking weed all the time.
Just don't watch it. 3 months ago
