It’s sometimes difficult to remove political or philosophical underpinnings from an artistic review. The goal is to judge a film or book or album or TV show on either artistic or intellectual criteria, but all evaluations are biased by their nature, and keeping the non-critical viewpoints from seeping into the process is a tremendous difficulty.

“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,” goes the French proverb credited to Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” It’s not that a society or organization cannot be transformed. But such change is often cosmetic or superficial. Reality isn’t altered at the deeper, more profound levels.

A woman sips from a coconut on the Barra de Tijuca beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Tuesday, June 3, 2014. It’s not just the hotels and flights that will break wallets. It’s the $10 caipirinhas, the $17 cheeseburgers or that $35 pepperoni pizza. If you hit the beach in Rio de Janeiro, you’ll likely sip on a $3 coconut and on the way back to your overpriced hotel, you’ll ride in public transportation that’s more costly than London.

I’m a firm believer in accountability. I don’t believe Arizona’s K-12 education accountability plan is tough enough. Yes, we require all our public-school students to take the statewide assessment. Students must pass AIMS to get into fourth grade and graduate from high school. However, students and schools are only accountable for math and reading. Furthermore, once-a-year “bubble-in” exams are incapable of measuring whether students can apply skills in “real world” situations. We do give third- through 10th-graders writing exams, but experts don’t evaluate them. Pearson, the London-based testing company Arizona hired, advertises for $12 an-hour temporary workers to score tests (bachelor’s required). Results take several months. By then students aren’t even in the same classroom.
