Pre-k experience

My daughter had a great experience at East Heights, now located at Kennedy. She had highly educated teachers and every resource available to preschoolers. I'm so proud to say she attended East Heights and I know it will continue to be a top notch program.

Hands-on training gives teachers a better grasp

You're missing the point WHY. These programs are designed to actually get kids on a real pathway to some sort of work before they graduate. They're hoping to reach kids also who are at risk of dropping out.
And, I appreciate and am thankful for the help of all the assembly line workers and manual laborers who are building our homes and cars.

School board proposes freezing teacher pay for 2010-2011

First of all the last day of school was somewhere around May 23rd. Teachers go back to work on Aug. 9th, so they're not out for 3 months. That was the old days. You'd be crazy to think they're not working 2nd jobs, in their classrooms and answering emails from parents during their time off. They don't do this job for money although it's of course how they take care of their own. Trust me, they're not living high on the hog. I'm so thankful that I'll have great teachers in this district to send my kindergartner to next year.

Lawrence school board votes to move up 6th graders, 9th graders in 2011

Sure wish they'd start all day kindergarten at all schools next year. That would cost though.

As many as 30 Lawrence teachers may not get new contracts for next school year

I'm with you matthewjherbert. We've got buildings instead of teachers.

Man who refuses to testify in trial ordered to spend 30 days in jail

It appears that the "thugs" didn't have guns in this case.

Man who refuses to testify in trial ordered to spend 30 days in jail

Interesting Eride. Possibly this would be why the victim is refusing to testify. Shifty on both sides of this case.

Man who refuses to testify in trial ordered to spend 30 days in jail

Did either of the boys shot have anything other than a stick? When I think of a strongarm robbery, I think of guns. Who knows what really happened though.

Man who refuses to testify in trial ordered to spend 30 days in jail

I'm wondering what the law actually says about defending your property? Can you shoot people in the back as they're running off your property? What if it isn't your legal residence?
Anyone have a link to these questions?
