Dec. 14 marks the one-year anniversary of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. After that tragedy the entire country wanted to know how such a terrible thing could happen. And more importantly, how can we prevent it from ever happening again?
Gov. Jan Brewer is weighing whether the troubled Child Protective Services needs to be split into a separate agency headed by someone who reports directly to her.
For years, Julie Fischer has devoted her life to trying to better young children in the realms of education and social behaviors.
Saying it's really a legal contract between the state and parents, Superintendent of Schools John Huppenthal is urging the Arizona Supreme Court to uphold the legality of what amounts to a voucher program for students.
Hundreds of parents, foster parents, current and former Child Protective Services (CPS) employees and child advocates showed up Tuesday night when the public had a chance to offer constructive ideas to five members of the CPS Oversight Committee.
Every family looks forward to the day when the “big envelope” arrives in the mail announcing an acceptance into their child’s college of choice. After the rounds of congratulations and phone calls to family and friends comes the reality of financing four years of tuition, room, board, books and living expenses. How will you pay for college? Understanding the sources of college funding is an important component of your college plan.
With the year coming to a rapid end, Inspire Kids Montessori is gearing up to finish its first fall season in a new Ahwatukee location.
Grief support for children is lacking in Ahwatukee Foothills, but it’s a serious cause that some Ahwatukee groups are hoping to find a solution for.
The Kyrene Parent Summit will be hosting “A Night of Education for Parents” this Thursday.
As a Kyrene parent and a 10-year Ahwatukee homeowner, I felt the need to express how important it is for everyone to vote next week on Tuesday, Nov. 5. If you haven’t mailed in your early ballot by Friday, Nov. 1, you can drop it off at ANY polling place.
Making a difference for local foster kids this holiday season can be as easy as sitting back and enjoying good food, good music, and good company in Ahwatukee Foothills next Sunday.
Candy, ghouls, pumpkins, and the nip of fall’s cold air means Halloween is close. It's the time of year that Brad Butler admonishes children for making fun of the devil by dressing up as Sparky. “You should have been Superman!” he tells them. The poor child, having made fun of the devil, will now soon be devoured warns Mr. Butler. But what do we read at the end of his diatribe? He supports the very mascot about which he warns us by sending a child to ASU. Sounds to me like a bit of hypocrisy is mixed in with that nip of fall’s cold air.
The Founding Fathers certainly didn’t agree on everything, but when it came to a public education, a seriously radical idea at the time, they were of one mind.
I am a 22-year resident of Ahwatukee, a senior citizen who has never had a child attend the schools in Ahwatukee, and a strong supporter of the upcoming override elections. The future of our country, our state and our local community depends on a quality public education system. Our youth depends on local citizens to fulfill their civic responsibility, just as we relied on community citizens to support our education in the past. Property values are enhanced in communities where school districts have reputations that attract parents who participate in their children’s education.
The MOMS Club of Ahwatukee North has decided to make quilts that will be donated to schools around the Kyrene School District in order to assist with generating school funding.
My wife and I have lived in the Lakewood community in Ahwatukee for 18 1/2 years. When we moved here in 1995 we still had an 8-year-old daughter living with us. She entered third grade at Kyrene de los Lagos, completing fourth and fifth grades there. She went through sixth, seventh and eighth grades at Akimel and graduated from Desert Vista in 2004.
In its sedulous efforts to accelerate the already rapid dumbing of America, Fox News is intensifying its suppression of economic facts. In John Stossel, Fox evidently has a sincere but stupid dispenser of preposterous misinformation.
The way someone handles the unexpected and/or adversity says a lot about who they are.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
The Expect More Arizona movement for world-class education in Arizona depends on Arizonans across our state raising their voices in support of our students and our schools. One infamous Arizonan, however, has been very vocal about his lack of support for quality education in our state. Gerald, from the iconic Arizona children’s show, “The Wallace and Ladmo Show,” reemerged from seclusion this summer in Expect More Arizona’s “A Message from Gerald.”
In today’s electronic generation, most kids show more concerns toward their electronics than getting some physical activity in their daily lives.
From escaping abusive parents to not knowing when their next meal will be, many children are in need of support. The Phoenix-based Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development has combined resources with Valley Metro, providing support 24 hours a day for children 17 and younger through the national outreach program called “Safe Place.”
Mr. Bryan Brinkley of Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society (AZ PASS) wrote a guest commentary in the AFN on Aug. 30, titled “Should guns be loved more than other people?” in which he seems to be offended that AFN published two rebuttals by a “loud minority in the community” to the stance that he and his organization represent.
