Craig Harris Arizona Republic Published 6:04 PM EDT Jul 11, 2018 Long before the groundswell of demands for higher teacher pay that led to a school walkout in Arizona, one of the state's high-profile charter schools found a novel way to boost teachers' income: Push parents to pay. Basis Charter Schools Inc., one of the state's fast-growing charter organizations, gets tax money to run its Arizona campuses as public schools. They're open to any family, tuition-free.

Does that mean a lot of my other stories are simply made up, but this one right here, by Golly, is true?) Rushmore of songs with a color in the title: Purple Rain, Blue Suede Shoes, Brown-eyed Girl and White Christmas. Please note we have choices we enjoy more than these, but it's hard to argue wth the universal fame and renown of these — and several others, too. (And yes, in Germany 99 Luft … [Read more...] about 5-at-10: Friday mailbag with this week’s Rushmores, Richt’s stinker, hate mail and more
