I think Johnny Keys own day care had a kidnapping problem, if rumors are true.

Re: “Still more legislative trickery, this time on new school voucher legislation

This is very upsetting. Ill get right on trying to inherit great wealth, somehow, so that I can have a voice as well.

Re: “The yawning teacher pay gap between Arkansas school districts

It's worth noting that the district with the highest teacher pay - Springdale - still only pays its paraprofessionals (who work as many days as the teachers do, also full-time) somewhere around $13,000 per year. Not even close to a living wage. They don't get overtime either, although the FLSA minimum salary to be considered exempt from overtime pay at >40 hours per week is $23,660.

Re: “Little Rock School District (J. Key prop.) faulted for dyslexia services

Charter schools cant offer any dyslexia input until they stop turning away students with special needs.

Re: “Minimum teacher pay going up by $1,000

54 Arkansas public schools already have a waiver that says they dont have to follow the minimum teacher salary law. This increase is just an incentive to get more schools to request the same waiver.

Re: “Asa's inaugural spending buried in state GOP filings but here are some details

There is SO MUCH implied in this blog post, but I don't know how to make all the right connections. I really wish we had the power to insist that they show the connections between these dots.
