    As I was leaving the studio of the Bill Buckmaster Show Thursday, Bill told me that TUSD's new superintendent, Dr. Gabriel Trujillo, was on the show last week, and Trujillo mentioned that the district is rebranding itself as Tucson Unified in place of the longstanding tradition of referring to it as TUSD. It's not a huge deal, obviously.

    I got something in the mail the other day that said that in a few years, I'll be eligible to receive Social Security benefits. That came as quite a surprise because, if you listen to the toothless hillbillies who show up to Donald Trump white-power rallies, there is no such thing as a government program that actually works.

    Monday Sep 11 | Tucson Weekly

    The Star's front page story about Pima county school districts' scores on the AzMERIT test has its facts right, but it doesn't include all the relevant information. As a result, readers are likely to draw the wrong conclusions-that TUSD and Sunnyside are doing a terrible job educating their students, while Pima county's suburban districts are shining stars in Arizona's educational firmament.
