AZ Republic despises parental choice in education

Conservatives who comprehend the need for parental choice in education are voting YES on 305

When the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic turns loose all of its resources on a single topic, it’s clear the newspaper is seeking to unduly influence what remains of its flagging, mostly Medicare eligible readership. Coordinated Page One reports, assenting columnists and editorials are the modus operandi for hammering home a point.

Apart from endorsing mostly liberals in the upcoming election, the topic of educational choice is contemptuously referred to as “vouchers.” The newspaper has also turned its wrath on Charter Schools, and their owners.

A front-page, above-the-fold October 5, headline blasted, “Arizonans confused by voucher measure.” To support its flawed contention, the editorial posing as a news report, substantiates it’s claim with this gem:

“Every Democrat in the Legislature opposed the 2017 expansion that Prop. 305 would keep in place or repeal. But 51 percent of Democratic voters surveyed said they would vote yes in support of the expansion.”

In the section of the voter guide where individuals and special interests pay to express their views on ballot propositions, ten full pages are filled with those who benefit from the current failed system, urging a no vote on Prop. 305.  Don’t be fooled.

Parents who want the best possible education for their children, were first-hand witnesses to the educrat establishment’s disregard for the public school students in their charge as they gave the back of their hands to their contractual agreements, abandoning students for a week, demanding a 20 percent salary increase for their part time jobs. The thousands of marching unionist teachers* mindlessly followed their favored leader Noah Karvelis, 24-year-old, hip-hop music teacher, and self-identified Socialist.

Passage of ballot propositions — 301 in 2000 increasing the state sales tax and 123 in 2016 a grab from the state land trust — guaranteed more money for education, which apparently is never enough. School districts routinely hold budget overrides and bond elections to “get more money into the classroom” —- eduspeak for bolstering teacher’s salaries. A major premise of passing the Arizona Lottery in 1980 was that money from ticket sales would fund schools.

U.S. News and World Report recently put out its list of the Best Charter High School in the Nation. Arizona topped the list with seven schools.

    The first step to freeing this country from it’s march towards a socialist wreck is to break the stranglehold the socialist educrats have over the minds of our youth. This is why the AZ Repulsive and other media organs of the hard left are so opposed to vouchers and charter schools.

      Well stated and factual.

      I personally know three families who removed their children from public schools after the infamous week long walkout. .It became clear to these parents that students were not the teacher’s priority. My neighbor who is a Republican Precinct Committeeman, told me a couple of years ago that his son was coming home from high school with wild liberal ideas and making what were typical liberal arguments for for his “new” views when talking to his dad. After questioning his son, the dad found out a couple of teachers were giving liberal talking points to the kids throughout class time, dropping them into conversations even when the topics were not political.

      The parents reported this to the principal and got nowhere. Ditto when they made an appointment with the district superintendent.
      They removed their son the next day, homeschooling him until they found a charter school. At first tensions were fierce, but the son excelled in the charter environment, was no longer propagandized and is now attending Grand Canyon College and doing quite well.

    Have you ever learned about the Fabian Socialists?
    Because they are the ones who brought us our education system.

    Founded in England in the 1880’s, their goal was to “transform society and governments” GRADUALLY, using harassment and “war of attrition” instead of head-on battles.
    (i.e.–wearing us down until we give in)

    The designer of our public education system was John Dewey, whose footprints are all over psychology and medicine and education. A Johns Hopkins University mover and shaker, he died in 1952.

    The Fabians, alive and well to this day, have this message:

    1) LIberal Internationalism (globalism)

    2) Welfare State

    3) National Education System where children are really property of the state and trained to serve the state, but never to be provided an education meant for men of letters, their betters.
    The result of this socialist mantra is EDUCATIONAL FAILURE, DUMBING-DOWN STUDENTS TO LEVELS OF USELESSNESS WITHIN SOCIETY.

    All of these destruction measures designed by Fabian Socialists and directed at our public education system where aided by
    NONE OTHER THAN GEORGE BUSH, and his “no child left behind”. (Here, let me show you how to pass this test. No, it’s not necessary that you learn anything, comprehend anything, or retain any knowledge.)

    It’s all about Control.

    As President Trump says:
    “They’re not coming for me—They’re coming for you.
    I’m just in their way”.

      Interesting background, Sam. Thanks! I was unaware of this history.
      Our public schools are have an untoward stranglehold on America’s youth. The teachers belong to left wing unions and spend more time with our younger generation today than most parents do. They are brainwashed from kindergarten on, being taught a skewed history of our nation and that homosexuality is simply “an alternative “lifestyle” from the youngest ages.There need to be more school choices, not less.

      I assume these drag queen story telling sessions are aimed at young, impressionable kids? I’m not a NYT subscriber, so I was unable to read the full report. I saw enough to be disgusted.

    AZ Republic wanted anti choice and fake Trumper Jimmy Lindblom in LD12 state senate. Lindblom is fake cause he had a meet and greet for Jeff Flake and his wife Cheryl at his house in August 2017. Shows you how fake he is, not to mention he launched personal smears at Eddie Farnsworth.
