This week's Insider noted some fractured Latin and syntax in the big ads being run in the Democrat-Gazette for the Hussman-Walton Memorial Charter School, Roy Brooks, prop., that's going in at Third and Louisiana.

A friend reports:

Have you checked their website?

Lots for you to work with throughout the website. A few samples (I especially like the language “tract”):

* "An Expanded School Day and Calendar: Unlike traditional public schools, eStem students will attend school nine hours each day and will benefit from an expanded school calendar of 200 days of school attendance."

* "Of the 20 fastest-growing occupations projected through 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics concludes that 15 of them will require substantial Mathematics or Science preparation."

* "The school curriculum incorporates a language tract:

·Latin in grades K-4 (as a foundation for English and other foreign languages);

·Spanish in grades 5-8; and

·Mandarin Chinese (for trade) in grade 9."

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
