    Ha ha. Arizona is the douchiest state.

    Think Progress Arizona Expands Its Discrimination: Teachers With Heavy Accents Can’t Teach English, Ethnic Studies Are Banned

    It gets better!

    I work in software and in schools and many of your best workers are foreign born. Russians, Ukranians, Chinese, Indian, South African you name it. It's that way in the college classrooms, too. It's actually pretty interesting and enervating. Arizona are just a bunch of xenophobic morons. Good job guys!

    Mrs Diver and myself are planning on moving to AZ in a few...Her family is from there, and her brother in law and step father are on the police and fire department in a border town. Needless to say, they both think this law sucks.


    add to that, the backwards thinking of the education department...



    I might be home schooling my kids...

    Holy Shyt.. they are off the charts with this stuff... not sure what else you can say.

    Guess there will not be a spanish history month, they already do not acknowledge MLK's birthday...

    John Stewart says that it's the news that keeps getting more and more absurd and Arizona got jealous. Top that Glenn Beck!

    Try reading a more balanced account then StinkProgress, that might help. :rolleyes:

    I actually do not buy AZ's argument in this case (and don't support it), but it's not nearly as draconian as that article makes it out to be.

    Like the WSJ which originally reported the story, and from which most of the information comes from? Right.

    Arizona Grades Teachers on Fluency - WSJ.com

    Ha ha - when the US needs to improve scientific achievement Arizona shoots itself in the foot. Ever take college or post grad math or engineering? If you get a teacher who is a native speaker you're lucky. But once you get used to the accent there's no problem at all.

    Huh? 64% supported the law.

    Arizona Voters Favor Welcoming Immigration Policy, 64% Support New Immigration Law - Rasmussen Reports

    and the governor got a 16% bounce after signing it into law

    Election 2010: Arizona Governor - Rasmussen Reports

    Now I hope you are saying the 30% that oppose the law better get started fighting it. Unless, you are spouting off the same stupidity that you were around the time of the election and the "30%" Either way, this is probably here to stay and may even spread to other states!!!!!:eek:

    How dare they try to catch criminals!!:cool:

    Opps, I just went in and read the StinkProgress link in the original link. I had multiple windows open and thought that the topic was

    THIS NEW ARIZONA LAW.

    My bad... Carry on :cool:

    To be fair both are covered in the OP. It's like a free market thread extravaganza all up in here.

    I tend to agree with you but I do support the ethnic thing to an extent. With the school assembly lines producing such a massive amount of retards there should be more emphasis on other classes. How about we have seniors that can read...

    Only 16% of Black high school seniors and 20% of Hispanic high school seniors scored at or above proficient on the 2005 NAEP reading test, compared to 43% of Caucasian students (NCES, 2007).

    http://www.betterhighschools.org/docs/NHSC_HighSchoolLiteracy.pdf

    :eek: Really??? Maybe we should cut back on those ever important ethnic studies and focus a little more on reading. I wonder if it's hard getting through life if you can't read. How about getting a job? 16, 20, and 43 percent are awful awful numbers.

    That's right, because nobody reads in an ethnic studies course. :bricks:

    You are slightly off base here. Actually, you are quite close with the nobody comment. Your sentence should read 16% of Black, 20% of Hispanic and 43% of Caucasian students read in an ethnic studies course. Good thing for those ethnic studies. :rocker:
