What is the big deal about public education these days? Does it really have an effect on my life if I don’t have children attending the public schools? The Justice Policy Institute issued a report in 2007 on Education and Public Safety. Research results found that “a 5-percent increase in male high school graduation rates would produce an annual savings (in the state) of almost $5 billion in crime-related expenses.” Are you aware that the Arizona high school graduation rate has fallen below the national average? Public Safety is the main concern of police departments across the state. Who, then, did the Arizona Police Association choose to endorse for Gilbert School Board? Jill Humpherys and Charles Santa Cruz.
I was giving a short tour to a colleague from California recently. We drove down Rio Salado Parkway and Apache Boulevard, went past Arizona State University and the Biodesign Institute, stopped at Tempe Town Lake and strolled down Mill Avenue. I showed him the projects under way and described those planned. At the end of an hour he turned to me and said, “Wow! You really like your community.”

Expectations for an Arizona team have never been higher than they are for the Desert Vista girls squad. The Thunder ended Xavier’s six-year run of state championships last year and lose just one runner who ran at the state championships. Barring an epic string of bad luck, the Thunder should win their second straight state championship, with Xavier and Highland battling it out for second. But Desert Vista has its sights set on becoming the first Arizona team to earn a trip to the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland in December.

Last Friday, I had the privilege of sitting down with young, up-and-coming author/actress Jessica Hickam, one of Arizona’s own who has decided to make her way in L.A. The firstborn of three girls, Jessica grew up in Tucson and graduated from Arizona State University. While Hickam noted that she was afraid to “leave the nest,” she did and has been flying high ever since. I was able to chat about her recently published book, “The Revealed.”
Like many middle-class parents, we promised our kids that we would pay for their college education, a reasonable promise in the 1980s from two parents who were teachers. We are still paying off their college loans in 2014, yet we feel lucky compared to students and families who are paying off college loans accrued between 2008 and 2014.
The outcome of the race for governor could turn on who can scare the middle class more, especially over the high cost of college.

A lingering cliché tied to education is the description of subjects like math as boring, a topic of study done to complete graduation requirements than for any enjoyable purpose.
