Left cites numerous studies attesting to “mediocre” Arizona
Those who read the local news might wonder what they’re doing here in Arizona. Monday’s Page One headline tells us “Trauma common for kids in Ariz.” And the answer? According to the state‘s newspaper of record, “Several Arizona leaders say the data are the latest alarm bell indicating that the state should focus more resources on child welfare.”
“Resources” are your tax dollars that educrats never have in sufficient enough supply.
The report is based on data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente, which looked at “adverse childhood experiences” nationwide. Results found 31.1 percent — nearly one-third — of Arizona children have dealt with two or more adverse childhood experiences, which is significantly higher than the national average of 22.6 percent.
In the same edition, the Business section headlines a report on another study — the results of which conclude, ”Arizona is mediocre at luring corporate facilities.”
Other headlines in the newspaper?
“Arizona: Where mediocre education is good enough.”
“The Arizona Department of Transportation recently launched a study which indicates that 52 percent of Arizona’s roads are in poor or mediocre condition.
Student journalists at ASU’s Cronkite News have caught on to the tactic and report “Arizona city parks receive mediocre scores in study.”
No doubt it’s merely coincidental that the Leftwing Arizona Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) which claims to “stand up to powerful interests,” uses the same terminology, declaring, “Arizona receives mediocre grade for enforcement of job-creation measures in subsidy programs.”
Though there are numerous such headlines testifying to Arizona’s abyssmal mediocrity, we provide this small but convincing sample which appears to indicate the lefties want the state to themselves.
