Obviously D. Higgins has never visited ESTEM Charter School. If she had, she would quickly retract her statement: "I, and many others, suspect the movement is a blatant attempt by predominantly white elites to use tax dollars to create a two-tiered system where poor minority students once again receive separate and unequal educational resources." Playing the race card solves nothing. Charter schools are an alternative foir those who can't afford to move from LR, can't afford the $$$$ for private schools, and who are not satisfied with what the LRSD has done with the Billion dollars it received to "fix educational discrimination". Charters are not the ONLY solution, but a damn good start.

Barbara Youree - Your easily the most ridiculous person to pen a letter this week. Let's examine your writings. "... move Confederate statues to cemeteries and museums rather than leave them in places of honor. However, the real fight should be for equality and justice. I believe people who flaunt Confederate flags, wear swastikas, and shout intimidating slogans should be censored."
Censor those who you judge offensive, and trample on their first amendment rights? Spoken like another leftist wacko who believes free speech only applies to them.

Little Rock schools on rise, public told August 25, 2017 at 10:06 a.m.

The days of a strategy for LRSD that focused on legal challenges, demonizing Charter schools, and bad-mouthing the state Ed department haven't worked. Pop is right. Improve the education. What is bothersome is the thought of returning the district to the same clowns (or their clones) who were fiscally irresponsible. The same also fostered the strategy described above and ignored the students in favor of bloated, incompetent administrations. Giving the district back to them will only mean disaster, and more pain for those parents and students whose only alternative is LRSD. They can't afford to relocated, or pay the big bucks for private schools; and Charters have long waiting lists. You can't have real economic growth in our city without an educated work force. For some reason our city leadership hasn't figured that out. Too busy trying to "revitalize" downtown for the developers.

JOHN BRUMMETT: Citizens and the schools August 24, 2017 at 12:56 p.m.

Anything JOYCE ELLIOTT is involved in is suspect. That said, why would the state of Arkansas (and its taxpayers) give control back to a bunch of yahoos who pissed away a billion dollars thanks to previous school boards' mismanagement? Baker Kurras was the right person at the wrong time. Get over it. The state should retain control until .....hell freezes over. Another pissing and moaning meeting won't fix a damn thing.

Muted fight over Arkansas Confederate symbols August 20, 2017 at 7:39 a.m.

I can't understand all this pissing and moaning over a bunch of monuments. Blacks should rejoice and support their existence because they are symbols of their freedom. If Lee and company had not LOST the war, blacks would not be free. So the irony is that these statues and monuments can serve both sides of the argument.

Arkansas senator revisits race-panel idea after events in Charlottesville August 19, 2017 at 12:41 p.m.

double- it must be miserable going through life stupid. You and Joyce would make a perfect couple, that is if you don't mind being associated with someone who looks like Nelson Mandella's love child, and has only half his brains and character. She is an idiot, elected only because of her race. She has done NOTHING to help resolve the LRSD meltdown, and even less to address black on black gang banging crime. A perfect rolwe model for liberals.....form committees, have prayer meetings, and tak..talk ..talk about problems.

Arkansas Democrats cancel anti-hate rally to avoid possible 'violent situation' with Confederate monument supporters August 19, 2017 at 9:53 a.m.

I'd be willing to bet that most of these anti-statue,wackos didn't know where many of them are, or anything about them until some other wackos wanting to stir up trouble made them aware. Most of folks didn't know whom Forrest Park in Memphis was named after, or that David O Dodd (where the school bearing his name is attended by a MAJORITY black population) was hung as a CONFEDERATE SPY. The millions who gaze at Mount Rushmore don't realize that two of the four were slave owners.
One consolation in all this madness is terrorist won't attack us; they can sit back and watch us destroy our nation, doing it to ourselves with all this PC bullsh**.

Protest over Lee statue in Virginia turns violent August 13, 2017 at 10:24 a.m.

This is madness. The pigeons are pissed that a statue might be removed from a city park. But even the pigeons will crap on any statue, even MLK, BHO or Bill Clinton. And 20 years from now (if there is still a USA) radicals will want to remove park names, statues, and historical references to the likes of whatever they "feel" offensive. And the poor pigeons will have to find somewhere else to crap.

JOHN BRUMMETT: Scouting the landscape August 13, 2017 at 10:16 a.m.

JB a lot of wasted printer's ink and paper about the most inconsequential "political office" in the state. The "Mayor" is a do-nothing position. Jim Dailey established that trend years ago; fortunately, we knew it then and didn't pay major bucks for the position. Little Rock's government is a cluster-f**k and will remain so as long as we have this worthless two-headed leadership. Bruce Moore can't effectively do his job as long as he has an ineffective, high profile mayor sharing the stage. There are recent examples where the mayor and city manager have different solutions to problems. The downtown shooting incident is one. Mayor wants more committees, prayer groups, and unneeded regulations on businesses. City manager saw it as a communication problem with the ABC and established a coordinator position. The next election shouldn't be for a new mayor, but for a new form of effective city government and leadership. Haven't we proved that we need a change? If Chicago and New Orleans with their Democrat leadership is your example of what we need here....then we might as well just burn this city down and start all over.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott suspended 6 games in domestic case August 11, 2017 at 2:59 p.m.

Jerry Jones - He's in the hall of shame for all the deadbeats, women beaters, drunks, druggies and just bad ass people he's had playing for him over the years. Must wonder if his "cowgirls" turn tricks as well.
