Perhaps if Skandera had (1) been qualified for her job and (2) Martinez had given more than lip service to education in New Mexico, our kids would already be seven years ahead of where they are today. Additionally, one or both of them could have listened to the teachers who would have told t…
One of the most difficult yet satisfying and beloved professions in the world is that of an educator. Sadly we have allowed our teachers to be treated as babysitters—and paid as such—under the Martinez/Skandy regime. Our governor believes herself to be omnipotent and her w…
Using your logic, Ms. Nordquist, New Orleans would "reenact" the slave auctions on Jackson Square in front of St. Louis Cathedral during Mardi Gras.
