State gets schooled April 23, 2015 at 9:51 a.m.

The general focus of all school districts should be a universal & equitable educational opportunity for all, with a primary focus on Pre-K and Elementary. A kid can’t do well in Middle or High School without the basics. The elephant in the room is this: no matter how good the teacher, or the teaching method, hungry and/or unmotivated (due to lack of parental encouragement/help) children will NOT do well in Pre-K or Elementary. Fix that problem and the test scores will improve.

Rutledge: Oil spill decree is 'critical victory' April 22, 2015 at 10:12 a.m.

Critical - but 5 million is tiny for a company worth 440 Billion.

Suggs quits LR schools; $250,000 payout OK'd April 22, 2015 at 9:26 a.m.

Yes, the money to be paid out is obscene, but that was part of the contract signed when he was hired. That money will be taken back if he's found guilty of the plagarism charge. What's even more obscene is that public education execs are able to get that crap put into their contracts in first place. A more sane approach would be a moderately decent base salary with bonuses based on ACTUAL performance.

Jindal talks up bill, 'religious liberty' April 17, 2015 at 10:12 a.m.

Where are the documented cases of " Christian business owners who were threatened with fines for refusing to participate in same-sex weddings 'in New York and … Western states' where gay marriage is allowed."? Why enact a "law" to fix a problem that does not exist?

Hunt goes on for missing jet April 17, 2015 at 10:05 a.m.

The conspiracy-theorist in me thinks that this jet did not crash into the ocean. The pilot(s) landed it at some clandestine location for terrorist purposes.

Striping to close Shackleford Road lanes April 9, 2015 at 11:51 a.m.

I sure hope they re-stripe the double yellow lines up by Markham intersection too. They're practically invisible even in daylight.

Cook calls 'religious objection' laws dangerous March 30, 2015 at 2:46 p.m.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. You can call it religious conscience, but it's still discrimination born of fear, prejudice and bigotry. "There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?"

2 election-transparency bills gain March 26, 2015 at 10:29 a.m.

Let's see . . . more campaign finance transparency vs the privacy rights of campaign donors. There's no such thing as privacy anymore. I wonder what opponents of this bill are afraid of? Kudos to the two freshman lawmakers for their bi-partisan efforts to pass laws that benefit people rather than of corporate donors.

Senate rejects bill to address crime victim fund shortfall March 25, 2015 at 5:53 p.m.

So, don't give any money to the victims of a deadly crime because that might short-change the law schools. Great! We really don't have enough lawyers in this state. Are these the same lawmakers that voted to deify Tom Cotton? When are you lawmakers going to do some real work to solve some real problems?

Scholarships' cuts heading to state House March 25, 2015 at 10:19 a.m.

If colleges are going to be greedy and raise tuition to gobble up "guaranteed" scholarship money perhaps we need a cap on college tuition increases. College students, and their parents, should NOT have to take on huge amounts of debt just to get a bachelors degree.
And since the business community laments that there aren't enough qualified applicants for all the avalilable good paying jobs, why not make it mandatory that businesses voluntarily contribute money (somehow) to keep those college tuitiions down? Come on lawmakers, fix this problem and quit deifying Tom Cotton.
