Re: “Tom Cotton blistered for lying for Trump; silence of GOP politicians also made statements yesterday

Let's not forget Sarah Huckabilly and her penchant for mendacity.

Re: “Trump disputes "shithole" language, Cotton slams proposed deal but no word on Trump's comments; UPDATE: Cotton "does not recall"

Thanks to folks like Cotton and Trump, the U.S. is moving quickly towards becoming a "sh***thole" country.

Re: “Panel approves another charter school for central LR over superintendent's objection

How about naming the new charter school the Frank Einstein Charter Experimental School? With all of the electric vibes and massive foundation funding, Arkansas might actually create a charter school with the possibility of living independently free of taxpayer support.

Re: “Charter school expansion plans under review today; use of Garland revealed and approved

When will the Walton family turn their no longer property-tax exempt,formerly known as "Super-Walmarts" into State Prisons?
They certainly have the "insiders" within all 3 branches of the Arkansas government (many well invested already) to get it done. Hell, they can even call the prisoners " Captive Associates".
At least these public eyesores will quickly vanish in communities across the state.

Re: “State school chief makes it clear: Charters more important than LRSD

Just for the record, when people who are claiming to seek clarity of "cloudy" issues such as these, provide clues as to how faux out of touch with the reality that they really are.
There has been a presumptive sentiment concerning the "teacher's union" that needs to be addressed. The union does not protect or promote sub-part performance within its own ranks. Student achievement is the number one priority. They pay dues to keep having to empty their own pockets (which most still do willingly), to provide Arkansas students with the tools to achieve success.
You should find more sympathy for these individuals who work in public schools, who have CHOSEN to work with any and every student. It just so happens that the students' learning environment happens to be their working environment. Public schools don't get to cherry pick who gets allowed in.
PLEASE take of your rose-colored glasses, or quit behaving like "Pollyanna". If you are that much in the dark about the real goings-on here, let's try to get real for a minute.
You take a former lobbyist for vouchers. This person is not even certified to be the State Superintendent, so the "gang that couldn't shoot straight" gives him a pass to allow him to continue, with oversight over all public schools. Why? Simple answer: $$$$. Especially when this person supports taking tax dollars and funneling them into Charter schools,Home schools or vouchers- which puts $$$ into basically a private business, by stating they can do better..... (check the records on that claim).
These same private companies that are feeding from the public trough, use much of their profits to buy elected official's vote, so they all can get fatter ( and getting to cherry pick who they will choose to enroll).
Meanwhile, back at the ranch , some people think if we can get rid of the elected school board and turn it over to Mr. Uncertified and the gang that can't shoot straight, and sell it to citizens who don't have the money to fight it, then "fait accompli" for those private interests.
Maybe the Union Bosses,that Uncle Hussmann keeps criticizing, can keep the pinheads among you ill-informed about this raid on taxpayer funds by the current elected/appointed crooks in state government, then Arkansans will reach the ultimate goal - being poor and undereducated as well.
Maybe it is too late already based on your anti-union rhetoric, but there's always the only thing that was left in "Pandora's Box": Hope.
