Re: “Stop the presses: Doubt from UA school 'reformer' about test scores as measure of future success

This comes as no surprise to teachers. We have always known that test scores are for bean counters who need to keep their jobs, they do not benefit students at all.

Re: “The double standard in Arkansas education: Accountability in real schools, but not at home

Homeschooling is definitely done right by some families. However, it is a catch-all for problem kids and those who dont want to go to school and can talk their parents letting them quit. You fill out home school papers. Bam. Problem solved. I know a number of kids anywhere from age 11 thru 17 who home school and most of them are just goofing off. Some school districts encourage it when the child is hard to deal with...on a very subtl, low key level of course. Officially and on the record you do not do that.

Re: “24 hours in Mountain View

This weekend was Bean Fest, which hosts the only outhouse races in the country. I didnt see that event listed in the article. Also, Jimmy Driftwood was a native of Timbo which is about 15 miles west of Mountain View.

Re: “Audit finds $23,000 overpayment on insurance for Lee County superintendent

What other school districts have been similarly audited? Will there be more stories like this?

Re: “Psychologists urge ABC to correct bogus depiction of RAD in '20/20' coverage of Justin Harris

The 20/20 story glossed over and pre-forgave a lot. Not what I consider to be investigative reporting.

Re: “The Medicaid mess: More than 25,000 beneficiaries (including ARKids children and the medically frail) still don't have coverage for medication

I'm sure the governor and all of the elected representatives still have insurance.
