Re: “'Waiting for substance'

Gasp! Free health care for children. OMG, HOW HORRIBLE! I am sure almightey God would certainly frown upon that. Hey Roland, Finland is not such a bad place. In fact, a study conducted by The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says people in Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands are the most content with their lives. The three ranked first, second and third, respectively, in "life satisfaction," or happiness. Funny. Northern Europeans pay some of the highest taxes in the world. Danes pay about two-thirds of their income in taxes. I guess you get what you pay for there. Good health care, maternity benefits for up to 52 weeks. I'd move to Finland if it weren't for the cold winters. If Griffin wins maybe I'll invest in a really heavy coat and move there anyway.

Re: “Daugherty decides

I do know from watching the school board meetings that Daugherty is very much in support of LRSD attorneys using litigation to fight the unregulated proliferation of publically funded private schools (a.k.a. charter schools). Based on what I've read on this blog concerning this issue, it would be enough reason for me to consider running again.

Re: “Daugherty decides

Whine all you want ladies and gentlemen. Daugherty and Mitchell continue to be elected again and again in their district. Want real change on the school board? The do something about it by actively campaigning against them. Daugherty's dishonesty about his education aside, from what I can see by watching the school board meetings that he cares about the education of LRSD children, a majority of whom are on free and reduced lunch. Baker Kurrus will be missed as he always seemed to be level headed and non-judgemental, and unlike Melanie Fox, sends his children to public schools...

Re: “D-G publisher and Walton influence in charter reporting

I am truly floored by all of this. As LRSD attorney Clay Fendley noted in his communication with Cynthia Howell.."how can a private foundation use a public university to prepare [i.e., "fudge"] and distribute pro-charter school propaganda." Yes, tell us how and why? The state, ADE, AG, the governor needs to be aware of all of this since they are using the "research" from these individuals as a basis for their conclusions that Charter schools do not impact LRSD desegregation. I would hate to think that these people are a bunch of racists, but it sounds like an attempt to re-segregate Little Rock schools.
