Dale Hansen didn't hold back when it came to controversy over a teen athlete.
"It was not just an attack on the Dallas police; it was an attack on our basic humanity."

Even though the states with the high teacher union rates get better results than the states with the low rates, conservatives still pretend that unions are somehow ruining public education.
If you have visited a news oriented website recently, you have likely heard the story of 29-year-old Brittany Maynard, who has an inoperable brain tumor. Rather than let the tumor dictate the terms of her death, she proactively sought an option that would allow her to end her life in a dignified and humane fashion.
History shows that Henry Ford doubled wages and still managed to increase profits. Are we really supposed to believe McDonald's can't spend a single penny more on workers without going bankrupt or ruining the U.S. economy?
The goal of $15 per hour is likely a pipe dream. But with around $8.5 billion in income, $3.5 billion in dividend payments, and another $67 million in executive compensation (2012), it seems McDonald's can afford to increase wages some.
On one side of this discussion are those who are holding up the shooting of Michael Brown as an example of the racial inequality in this country and in the justice system in particular. On the other side of this discussion are those who see racism as a hoax to be disproved.
If you are white or Republican, you are likely to think the racial component of the shooting of Michael Brown is getting far too much attention.

At the top of many education reformers' wish list is expanding charter schools to give students a choice. The total number of charter schools currently competing with Grosse Pointe and Birmingham public schools is zero.
The rise of the U.S. was very much tied to innovation and creation. This conservative propensity of arguing for antiquated occupations to save menial jobs instead of embracing the sort of change that made the U.S. the world power it is today is dangerous.
You would be hard-pressed to find data that show less money in education leads to better results, but you can easily find people who complain that we spend too much on education.
