So if a fake school board shows up, why would anyone listen to a word they say?

So for $25 any person with a pulse may join a group the "Arizona Coalition of School Board Members". Sounds like a fantastic way to pocket a couple hundred grand now, then in a few years make a couple hundred more from selling the mailing lists to PACs and campaigns.

"Arizona conservatives launch alternative to education group"

Isn't the "alternative to education" ignorance?

"a public education environment in Arizona that prioritizes freedom in education, parental rights and educational excellence,"

Hmmm, a GOP educational organization that values education 3rd best..... Sounds bout right

Not all the unwashed masses can afford Xtian private academies.   We have to reach all the public school kids and indoctrinate them if their parents won't do it.

"Parental rights" and "educational excellence" are mutually opposed.

They can't win the school board seats, so they are trying to end route the whole voice of the people thing.

Can we start throwing them in the volcano yet?

Because you stupidly paid Bannon & Stone & Flynn $25 for membership, $200 for a briefcase, and donated another $500 to the cause?
1) Public schools on the US don't teach CRT.  So this claim is false.
2) Public education is a constitutional right, and subject to the same protections especially the first amendment.  Q-nuts want the 6-pack abs white version of Jeebus driving a bimmer while being showered in cash on his way to stone a transgendered athlete.
3) More conservatives screaming word salad and nonsense, and who have no idea how to actually run anything.
4) Wealthy AZ donors are more than welcome to open a free private religious school and run it as they want.  What's that?  You think the dirty poor don't deserve it?
5) Large amounts of cash and propaganda are flooding AZ in the wake of #45s loss there in 2016, and their senator has been bought and paid for.
C'mon AZ, the foxes are running the hen house.  Time to take out the garbage.

Their job is to fark up the public education system to the point it is no longer effective. To where parents with the means put their kids into private schools, many which are covert right wing indoctrination centers, while leaving those who cannot afford it an inadequate education making them easier to exploit.

These are the people who complain that the schools are not educating our kids on the level needed to compete in the world, then complain the reforms implemented to give the kids a better education are too hard for their kids. Just changing math class to where the kids actually understand how numbers work and mathematical theory, rather than mindless "plug and chug" that is more training than educating, the parents go batshiat crazy because "it's hard". The same parents complaining that the liberals are raising the snowflakes, oblivious to the irony.

Technically, pi does equal 3 if rounded to zero decimal places.

They aren't even a fake school board, just a fake group that trains/represents school board members (and concerned parents, AKA morons).

I May Be Crazy But...: bighairyguy: Technically, pi does equal 3 if rounded to zero decimal places.

I realized I should probably explain.  If you write 3.00, that means you intend the tenths and hundredths to be 0.  3 can mean you rounded.

Yes, I know Excel displays two digits by default.  Stop trying to take mathematical facts from an over-used accounting program.

A new organization calling itself a nonpartisan school board association is headed by Republican activists

The big lol is in the first line.

They also don't define what they mean by "excellence".

The website elaborates a bit to say that their priorities are to:
Provide a student-focused perspective in educational policy.
Focus on excellence in traditional academics.
Advocate for the expansion of choice options for Arizona students and families.
Enhance local control with state-level accountability.
Provide an alternative choice in education advocacy to board members.
Promote fiscal responsibility at all levels of board governance.
Provide training and leadership development to the community.
Provide products and services to our membership that supports the success of students in Arizona public schools.
Represent and advocate for the needs of our membership


The closest they come to valuing empirical facts seems at wanting "excellence in traditional academics", and that sounds like code for "if it was good enough for my grandpa it's good enough for my grandkids". Other than that, it sounds like they think schools should teach kids that schools should teach kids that "2+2=5" if the parents prefer that over teaching "2+2=4".

Samfucious: I'm beginning to think Republicans don't even know what "non-partisan" means.


Every accusation is a confession. Their accusation here is that the real school board is partisan. It happens to be partisan on the liberal side. They don't like that so they're forming a non-partisan group that will not be liberal.

They don't even realize their group is partisan because they assume that partisan means "what the liberals are doing."
