Good post, Dave! I agree with you, "something smells rotten in the state of Sunnyside"

Hey Dave: How about something in the Blog about the terrific improvement of the AIMS scores in K-6. The Star said nothing about this! Could it be that daily physical activity is helping? Best, Steve

Good job, David! The Arizona Charter School Association and Eileen Sigmund is on my (_hit) list! I have tried many times to work with them about daily physical activity with no response! Even Senator Farley tried!

And if more teachers would take their kids out for daily physical activity breaks if there is no PE, you would see scores go even higher!!

And the parents can help out by writing letters to the Star Editor about some good things going on in their schools.

Great post Dave! I agree with you about about the adults ranting about the kids. However the big difference I see nowadays is the invention of the video games, i-phones, etc. and the lack of exercise of the young people. Remember we use to dance all the time besides going outside and playing. This sedentary activity is in part responsible for the obesity and diabetes epidemic.

I say about 700 people marched. I was there and it was awesome!!!

And of course daily physical exercise! The Finns have 10 minutes of every hour of academics devoted to recess and movement!

This was Senator Kimberly Yee's Bill, who is the chairperson of the Senate Education Committee. Although I think this is a good idea but it is not in the Common Core Curriculum and do the teachers have time for this? How do the Republicans justify this bill and not even hear our bill SB1114, daily physical activity in grades K-5 which has really pissed me off!!

Hey David: Can we get some parents to write letters to the Daily Star about this wonderful event. I'm trying to get positive PR for TUSD. I will go to the Board Meeting and talk about this too and better publicity!!

Right on Bob! I've been saying this for years! Our society is so obsessed with professional athletes. Are they greater than God?? I worry about the kids that worship these sports stars and then get so disappointed when they mess up or fail!

Hey Pam: She did the same thing at DL. Did not show up leaving Mike, Mariana and I holding the bag!

Thanks, Pam! All the candidates agreed that the elementary school kids need daily organized physical activity breaks. That's why Dr. Mark Stegeman and I worked so hard to get a structured recess mandate in TUSD!

Guess what? I'm going to Philadelphia on September 28 to work with the Coalition to get minority voters their photo ID's. My sister who lives in nearby New Jersey and I will train on Saturday, Sept. 29 and then go out to the streets! I can't wait for this opportunity!

Hey Falcon9. You cannot be possibly proud of your Arizonan Republican legislators! They have proven time and time again to make these idiotic statements! Do you actually know any Mexicans who want to return our land to Mexico or is this heresay??

All these bills are sponsored by ALEC and funded by the Koch Brothers. Arizona legislators do not even write these bills. They take their marching orders from the insidious national organization called ALEC.
