I happened to be watching the local news last night when a story ran about the ongoing scheduling debacle at Rio Grande High. It has been more than two weeks since the APS school year started and the school doesn’t even have student schedules worked out.
Heading into the first commercial break was this lovely ad from Diane Denish:
Apparently, the fact that hundreds of students have wasted more than two weeks of school due to an entirely avoidable blunder is a clear indicator to Denish that we should make sure that “no resources should be diverted” from these failing government-run schools. Heaven forbid that these kids receive a voucher or “opportunity scholarship” that gets them out of this failing school, but that might involve diverting some resources from the clearly-incompetent folks at Rio Grande High.
If we were talking about her kids, Denish would use her personal wealth to pull her own kids out of a failing school, but not everyone has her resources. So those kids remain trapped, waiting for the bureaucrats to get a schedule together.
