Re: “Two strong votes for taxes; special elections again prove allure

Yep- of course, LRSD parents and good teachers have been looking elsewhere for decades. Despite govt and media leaders attempting to force blame upon somewhat recent initiatives. (Where was the desegregation money spent- other than to attorneys?)

Re: “New tax is the plan for highway money; here's the impact on drivers

I would hope the bigger issue would be on how the funds are ultimately allocated. The fact that they are equally distributed between 5 districts is insane. The best highways are from Pine Bluff to SE Arkansas which are never busy and the biggest benefit is getting to and from the Gulf Coast, NOLA, etc.

Lawmakers try to spend highway construction as job makers. However, many if not most companies/employees are based out of state and even if not the jobs last just a couple of years.

If interstates/highways were truly an economic generator, please explain the development (lack of) between LR and Memphis?

Re: “Following the GIF scandal in Northwest Arkansas

Not wanting to get into partisan politics at all. A previous commenter is exactly correct. Unfortunately, it is most, if not all, on both sides of the fence. The enticements, per diems, insurance, retirement benefits, etc., make it all too easy to simply want to be re elected.

I certainly do not, nor do the majority of my friends have access to a pension plan as they do. Much less the benefits they receive.

Re: “Big Ideas for Arkansas 2017

Re the post about recess in elementary schools. I agree wholeheartedly. However, I believe one of our wonderful state senators was trying to get a law passed requiring a cursive writing class at some grade. This would be great for the future learning and production of our youth. (Yes, that is sarcasm.)

Re: “Fighting for the Little Rock School District; absent a state commitment count me a skeptic

"The LRSD gets no similar forbearance" - what? The district has performed poorly for what, at least 30+ years, took 100's of millions in state funds with no improvement. Local control got the students very little. It's amazing that parents (at least engaged parents) are aggressively enrolling their children in charter schools- yes, that is sarcasm.
