Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

I believe that the question regarding credentials is a valid one and one that should be asked of every candidate running to represent We the People. I also believe that such a question should be put to the current incumbent who, other than serving on the Education Committee in the State Senate has little to give me comfort in his abilities as Superintendent. That said, he was elected (running as he always has as a "Clean Election" candidate) and has had a less than stellar track record...much like his track record in the Senate where he presided over the implementation of AIMS, introduced legislation that eventually down graded AIMS so students who had not learned the curriculum could be passed along, and was at the helm when Arizona's children received the lowest rankings in our history. These are 'credentials' that we should have asked about. Well we are asking now.
As to Diane's credentials, please go to her web site at www.dianedouglas.com
and see for yourself what she has done. While you are there, please consider signing her petition and contributing to her clean election campaign. She is running Clean because she is fearful of
"The Educational Industrial Complex" (to borrow a phrase from President Dwight David Eisenhower) because people like Pearson Publishing (current contractor for the PARCC test related to Common Core), Intel pushing their tablets needed to take the PARCC test, Bill Gates and Microsoft who both funded Common Core and will sell us their software needed to implement it and the PARCC test...etc. etc. These are people our current Superintendent is very cozy with having been given all expense paid trips to Japan, China and Brazil upon taking office and currently serves on the PARCC panel who is charged with implementing PARCC throughout the United States. Make no mistake...Common Core and PARCC are a Federal intrusion into local education and our current Superintendent is all for it even though the majority of us are against it. Sounds a little like Obama Care, Obrewer Care, etc. etc. We need to stop this intrusion and electing Diane Douglas is the way to do it. Wouldn't you join us in this noble effort?
