NM Public Schools

Mikaela says:
I'm an ardent public school fan. I did just fine in public schools, and I believe a good, free public education is what we owe all children.

Which is why this little tidbit caught my eye and makes me fear for my daughter's education. Not only are the majority of our public schools in New Mexico not making "adequate progress" - more and more are losing ground each year.
Time for education overhaul? I think so!

(3 years til preschool, people! Get moving!)

Academy Awards 2010: Snore!

Mikaela says:
An hour in, and so far ... snoresville!

Only the histrionic tribute to John Hughes has been worth my attention.

I mean really, who cares about the movies this year? Is anyone out there rooting for a particular movie? I can want Precious to win just for the exposure, but did I see it? No! Too much of a downer. To be fair, Kleenex ads are too much of a downer for me, these days. Still...

Avatar should win best picture. Steve and Alec should be funnier. Enough said.

Afterward: Sandra Bullock's acceptance speech was among the classiest and funniest I've seen. Wasn't the biggest fan, but I'm kind of in love with her now!

Jeff Bridges is weird, man. I've always hated his teeth, anyway.
