Clearly Mayor Ed Murray is a charter school fan, as mentioned several times in the HALA document. Typical DFER Dem.
Jun 29, 2015 StuckInUtah commented on Teaching Tribal History Is Finally Required in Washington Public Schools.
Considering how much time a teacher has to spend testing these days (and even more time on test prep if WA passes the teacher evals tied to test scores that the GOP salivates over), when will teachers have the time to teach about Native culture? Social studies has gone by the wayside in most of the lower income public schools due to the push for test scores and the focus on reading and math. Science also gets shorted, though quite not as badly as social studies. Something needs to give. Either you have a rich curriculum for all kids, or you have a narrow, test prep curriculum for most kids except those in richer schools who can deviate from test prep at school because they have tutors, access to books, music lessons, sports, etc.
Jun 22, 2015 StuckInUtah commented on Is Hillary Clinton In Trouble?.
All of my teacher friends in Seattle are all looking at Bernie as the one. Hillary is too cozy with Arne Duncan, the charter school hedge funders, the Waltons, and various other ed deform entities. They see her as a continuation of what we've already got.
May 19, 2015 StuckInUtah commented on Seattle-Area Teachers Walked Out in Huge Numbers Today Over Lack of Funding for Schools.
I do enjoy the irony of Baumgartner and his cronies (Grand Old Party of Assholes) wanting legislation to punish teachers for walking out (hence "not working") when the sole reason they are walking out ("not working") is because the legislature is not working to fund education like they are supposed to be doing. And legislators are still getting paid - more than a lot of teachers. Even more if you include their healthy $120 per diem.

I can verify that there is no secret nuclear test site in Utah as Hersh claims...

@41 Except in Utah.
Jan 29, 2015 StuckInUtah commented on NAACP: The Silence of Mayor Murray and Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole Is Deafening.
@2 - Murray is busy prepping for his new role as the education mayor. Mayoral appointees to the school board, the city running pre-K, soon mayoral control of schools. No matter that he's not doing the stuff he should be doing - he's too busy expanding the scope of his job.
Dec 26, 2014 StuckInUtah commented on Salt Lake City Airport Update.
@4 Connor is on the way out. Logan, Payson, Hyrum, Jackson, and Brigham are all more popular than Connor nowadays. Still waiting for Nephi and Moroni to get popular....

SLC Airport was better before the mass eviction of the more local establishments in favor of the national crapola. For entertainment, find the nearest Deseret Books and ask them about buying Fawn Brodie's No Man Knows My History.

It's A Small World playing endlessly would do me in. Probably why I don't go to Disneyland anymore.
