No indeed. Tisue and Leany are hell bent on privatizing schools. When Tisue ran I wondered why, when her own silver spoon kids were home schooled, she wanted to run for the school board.

District 51 would jump at the chance to emulate Douglas county schools where funding is about triple what Mesa county gets. There are added administrators and specific additions to core area academics.  It would be very unsettling to professional educators to go the route of CEO business leaders to lead schools.
