ya, nice misdirection. Yep, its all about the evil republicans.
Not about the living, breathing babies that were MURDERED. Your hero President supported a bill while in Illinois to allow for infanticide after a botched abortion.
Late term abortions are horrible and barbaric. We allow them and don't talk about them on the news. Our dirty little secret of abortion on demand. Freezers and garbage cans full of aborted fetuses and murdered babies, mostly minorities. Something to be proud of.3 weeks ago
Forgot to mention the overtime city workers will get after next years 4/20 rally when they have to pick up after the unemployed slobs who get together to toke it up.3 weeks ago
Wow they must be good. 2 years in jail tops. 4 weeks ago
AZ Guy, sorry you are misinformed like most that diss the BASIS model. There are sports, theatre, music, dances, etc. at my kids BASIS. Is it academically oriented? Obviously. BASIS is not for everyone. There are other options, but don't hate it for its success. They are trying to compete with the rest of the world educationally while public schools fall farther behind teaching "diversity" and "tolerance" and how not to be a bully....
"Difficult to translate is the regular world?" Um, ok. Is your regular world full of low achieving, government dependent folks? The record number of people on disability and 'not participating' in the workforce? People looking for handouts? Then yes, it would be foreign to those types.
My regular world if full of people taught to work hard and take responsibility for their own success, not victims and whiners. But as I saw in the last election, I am now in a minority. 4 weeks ago
soricobob you are either ignorant or lying(or both). BASIS has placement tests AFTER your child is accepted. I have seen this lie written several times on these boards and correct it each time.
My 3 kids all go to a BASIS. It is not perfect, but model the local school district had for 'magnet' schools was dismantled over political and PC considerations- so i put my kids at BASIS.
IVANNA, keep looking down from your ivory tower while the BASIS kids keep passing AP tests and getting the scholarships. Let's compare school test scores. Did Harvard recruiters visit your school? They came to BASIS-along with many others who do not have to recruit students-but want BASIS students.
If the teacher you mention is so ineffective I am sure his students will fail and he will be removed-if not, maybe he did not like the environment of your school-I can't say I blame him.4 weeks ago
Wow, a lot of hate from some here. Sad. I am sorry for the loss, but I too must comment on the slant of the article. Completely ignored in the article is the fact he came from a broken home.
And based on a couple bigoted comments, I would guess he was Mormon, or his parents were. My understanding is Mormonism forbids alcohol.
I partook(alot) in High School and did not die at 23 from a drug overdose. Please don't point and scream that alcohol is the sole reason for this tragedy. If you are, you are not being honest about the situation.
Yes, teach children to love themselves. Be aware how your own selfish decisions can affect them, especially as teenagers. Know their friends. Spend time with them. Be involved with their lives.2 months ago
A lot of confusion here. Religion is just opinion, so if it is my "opinion" to denounce a child molester, I am violating his civil rights? If denounce an adulterer, I am violating his civil rights?
Apparently so. Another article showing the author's less-than-stellar intellect. 2 months ago
Um, yea ok. Next.2 months ago
Yep, keep collecting fees from students to support political activity they disagree with, just like union members. The opt in sounds like a FAIR plan.
While they are at it, isn't the light rail supported by ASU student fees against their will?
I would think an opt in for that would be appropriate as well.
Just keep wondering why those college bills keep going up folks. 2 months ago
"police their own words and each other?"
Political correctness and Rightthink.
Sorry, my kids still live in America. I teach them to speak their minds and be prepared to defend themselves from junk like this and PC idiots who would shout them down.
Touchy-feely garbage like this gives us conformists to the Left, not individuals ready to lead and contribute in a meaningful way to the betterment of our Country.2 months ago
