I support public education in Arizona

Categories: Education, Politics

This coming school year our oldest will enroll in kindergarten. … I will gladly provide my daughter’s teacher with however many reams of paper she puts on the supply list, with facial tissue, crayons, pencils, and whatever other supplies she needs. Because I care about my daughter’s education, and all her classmates. And I know that based on past actions my daughter’s teacher will not be able to count on the state supporting her. Keep reading

And by the 24th things were starting to wind down at the Olympics. But we still got some commentary in. Bobsled. Curling. Hockey. Keep reading
