Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
IMHO Kathy Hoffman belongs in prison - not in charge of our schools

(This is Pat's wife, Florence) I been very disappointed in Kathy Hoffman as Superintendent of Public Instruction. She seems to have an agenda for the LGBTQ community rather working for the students of our state.
In the position that I had for the last 14 years my boss had connections with the Arizona Department of Education. From what I have heard and witnessed about the Arizona Department of Education, it is a mess. We need someone who can go in there and straighten up the whole department. This should not be someone with an agenda (whether it be pro-LGBTQ or anti-Common Core). We need someone who is a skilled administrator to straighten out the workings of the department. For example, the ombudsman who is to answer questions in regards to Title I services for the public schools to give private schools (as required by ESSA law) was e-mailed 6 times by a local district with no reply and another district 4 times with no answer.
Every new leader who comes in wants to make their own changes to the department. They may decide on testing that makes them look good rather than an accurate measure of how our students are doing. They make changes to fit the agenda for which they were elected.
I feel that we should have this position as an appointed position; however, it would require a change in our constitution.
Does anyone else agree with this? Or do you see problems with having this as an appointed position?
I semi-agree with you, Pat's wife, Florence. Common core (yes, I have read your positions on this many times and we need not post all of that again; you stand pretty much alone on that topic) has been just as debilitating to kids as Hoffman. Kids are being permanently damaged with both of these programs that has no place in schools. Period. Get rid of both.
And Karen is also right. I would not put my kids in public schools today.
Need to pull your kids out of the government run schools. This is the only way we can save our children!!
How can Kathy Hoffman be removed. Her entire agenda is to promote homosexuality and turn our kids into perverts. She needs to be removed.
