I know this won't satisfy the racists and hillbillies but the classroom spending is reducing each year because the plant operations, food and transportation are fixed costs. When the pie gets smaller and those costs remain the same (or increase in the case of energy), it takes up more of the pie. It is easier to put a few more kids in the rooms2 months ago

By Ed's logic an atom bomb or a dirty bomb would be fine and dandy...even a nuclear warhead. What is the matter with you Mr. Jones?5 months ago
The "total funding" arguement that charters get less money than district schools is true and Mike accurately reflected why that is the case. The REAL ISSUE that everyone is losing sight of is our state budget woes. Ours is going to be once again in a huge deficit and the money that comes out of there for education spending is more per pupil to charter kids by the amount the letter writer states. Te other sources of funding does not matter to our state's impending financial doom yet the AZ Conservatives are quite happy spending more for students to attend an overall inferior educational setting. The state spends more and gets much less.[wink]5 months ago
I remember when Montgomery wouldn't bring criminal charges in the Fiesta Bowl scandal saying that the laws weren't strong enough. He said he would work with legislators to strengthen them...that worked out swell didn't it?

AZ is well below the national average in performance and Howard should act like a real journalist and question these political claims. http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/states/11 months ago
Hysterical Senator Pierce!!! You pump up dollars to the back door voucher program and refuse, yes REFUSE, to put any accountability in there. The tax credits were supposed to go to low income families...no means testing> Do they have to be graded? Take the AIMS test and make the results public? No and no.11 months ago

My comments were for the LETTER written...very different from an article. My point was that we are a welfare state when it comes to tax dollars. The author pulled out one type of tax and started to whine when it is all bull. You CANNOT pull one item out and cry "whoa is me" when all of the federal taxes put together show this state to take 20% more out than we put in.
On a serious note, why do you fiond the need to name call Human? I could easily have called you an idiot but I refrained. Couldn't you just argue with facts?[sad]Mar 18, 2012
