Re: “The end of public education as we knew it in Arkansas

Too bad Walker agreed the State had remedied the vestiges of past discrimination in LRSD in 2013. Now the State no longer has an affirmative duty to remedy past discrimination in LRSD, and thus, Walker has no leverage on the charter school issue. He will have to prove a new act of intentional discrimination. School choice with no transportation was slam dunk case in 1969. Today, not so much.

What is that Walker got for LRSD "black" kids for his 2013 agreement?

Re: “Arkansas Advocates: Modest surplus is ominous sign for governor's highway plan

If you include the expected "surplus" in your budget, it's not "surplus" anymore -- it's part of the budget. So, if revenue does not meet forecasts, there will be no "surplus" to fall back on. This is not good policy.

Re: “Author of email forwarded by Leslie Rutledge: people offended by email are unfamiliar "with literary technique"

When my wife brought the "racist email" to my attention, I was excited and had high expectations. The actual email was a huge disappointment. The author is more a narcissist than a racist -- she wrote a story about what a great person she is and sent it to all her friends. She used dialect to convey the race of her benefactors because helping "others" makes her an even greater person.

Re: “The roots of Little Rock's segregated neighborhoods

Evidence to support everything in the article and more was heard by Judge Woods in the Pulaski County inter-district desegregation case and formed the basis for his imposing liability on the State of Arkansas for residential segregation in Pulaski County. That's why the State funded magnet schools and inter-district transfers in Pulaski County for 24 years.

Re: “The Bible stars in Mark Pryor's new television ad

It's a TV ad not a policy brief. Pryor is trying to appeal the average Arkansan, and the average Arkansan is a superstitious fool with an eighth grade education. So, cut him some slack and go vote against Tom Cotton.
