Carl, a couple thoughts about the high-stakes testing you discuss in your commentary: (1) manyRead More school and district administrators do place way too much importance of the tests and use way too much school time preparing students for the tests. It was not uncommon for students to be subjected to TWO pre-practice tests during the school year (nearly as long as the actual test) in preparation for the end-of-year STAR test here in California. Any way you look at it, that's a waste of valuable educational time. Why did that occur? Because school administrators felt pressure from higher-ups to raise tests scores, even at already high preforming schools. That is unlikely to change with the new Common Core standards/testing. . . . . . . . . . (2) On the other hand, way too many teachers complain that they "can't be creative, can't teach the good stuff, can't focus on writing, can't give students time for PE, can't give students art, and on and on and on because of the pressure to "teach to the test." That's nonsense. Quality teachers easily figure out how to cover the standards (California State Standards or Common Core) without teaching to the test. Quality teachers find ways to integrate the standards with whatever they're teaching. Quality teachers know how to teach writing, reading critical thinking, social studies, science art, etc. and still cover the standards (which leads to kids doing well on the TEST).

The best thing for them is to get a decent education, at least a high school diploma, then go on toRead More get at the minimum an AA Degree and Bachelors. This business about raising the minimum age isn't going to cut the mustard over the long haul. Those are entry level jobs more suited for high school kids like I did many years ago or college kids working their way through school. If they think raising the minimum is their long term solution, then they will remain at the bottom rung of the economic ladder for a number of years.
MFriedrich July 22, 2014 at 12:12 pm
The problem is that there is no conclusive evidence that demonstrates how raising minimum wageRead More creates more employment opportunities (i.e. "creates more jobs") for a community or for a selected economy. Unless a business or sector is growing substantially, paying employees significantly more results in higher wages, but also reduces profits, capital and almost certainly drives higher prices to make up profit shortfalls. In addition, does anyone else question the purpose of polling 500 individuals across the US? This seems like a woefully insufficient sample size to draw meaningful conclusions about economic outlook. There's no link to the poll data, but if 70% of 500 polled are minimum wage earners then that would affect the results of the poll. Conversely, if 70% were well educated, skilled, talented, gainfully employed, higher earners, results and conclusions would be different. It seems no journalist, including those at LF Patch, questions the value of La Raza asking a group of people who are somehow economically disadvantaged in the US economy whether they believe they believe they are disadvantaged in this economy, or not. In short, rhetorical polls are a worthless endeavor, unless you are buying votes.

Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

Really it can be automatically monitored and maintained for free through a cooperating University. This is merely a $16 million a year hornswoggle going into the crony's pocket. Its dirtier than greedy profit. All that, lying cheating and stealing on top of it. Republicans in office don't deserve to be there because they do not study and know about the communities they represent or what they have already (and recently) funded. They are not doing their jobs in a two party system. Having formerly worked for the DNC the only thing good I can say about democrats is they at least learn their constituencies well enough to manipulate them.
