Douglas Does It Again: Sunday’s Comic

Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas is up to her old tricks…. using taxpayer money to travel around the state shoring up any support she might still have…

From her press release:

  1. I can’t wait to not vote/ unvote this empty skirt.

    I hope she sees this, not one person I know that voted for her before will do the same again next time

  2. Diane is doing a stellar job. Forget Frank Riggs. He’ll rig anything.

    How does one know Superintendent Douglas listens? Just last week, she sent an email to parents about comments they made for the Common Core review which ended in 2016. The Math and English standards–the rebrand of basically the same standards were accepted in mid Dec 2016. If Douglas is that behind in “listening,” then it seems premature for her to go back out for 2017 comments from the public.

    The AZ Common Core rebrand is a disappointment and those in elected leadership (Douglas and Ducey) aren’t being upfront about what happened. Douglas didn’t even vote with the majority of those on the standards committee to discuss the standards before adoption. She wasn’t listening to what the majority wanted. Then the following week helped overturn the committee’s decision to wait and discuss the standards. Douglas helped the State Board of Ed steamroll the committee that worked on the standards review for 18 months. That’s not doing a “stellar job” in my opinion. Those of us who worked hard to get Diane elected the first time believed she was listening to us. Fool me once…

    I also don’t know anyone who voted for Douglas who will do so again. The people I know are voting for Frank Riggs. Look at his record of service. He has a lot of experience to offer to the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
