Adelanto Elementary School District Defies Parent Trigger Ruling

Parent trigger laws are under attack in California. High Desert Elementary School, a member of Adelanto Elementary School District, is the first school in which parents have successfully executed the Parent Trigger Law. State testing scores show that 75% of students cannot read or write, causing The Desert Trails Parent Union to look for major changes for the better education of their children.

Happy Deficit Day 2012!

September 10th, 2012 is National Deficit Day. That means that September 10th is the date on which the United States government is out of money for the year. Every single penny they spend for the rest of the year, explain economists James Harrington and Antony Davies, will be added to our debt. Deficit Day should ideally be on January 31st.

The “Secret Ballot Amendment” was adopted by Arizona in 2010 and gave workers the chance to vote on unionization through a private ballot. The alternative is to have workers sign a card in public. With a public vote, the chance of intimidation and coercion by unions is much greater.

California School District to Spend $1 Billion to borrow $105 Million

California has lost 600,000 jobs in the last decade and has a $26 billion deficit. Their public schools aren’t performing well, with lower grades and graduation rates than students in other states. It makes sense that a community would want to invest in education, but one would expect reasonable return on investment.
