So after putting up a post on my Exploring blog page earlier tonight I find I am starting this very post about half an hour from midnight. Tomorrow starts a new month. Although I am so not ready and I am still not sure what happened to this month or even July for that matter. PLEASE check out that other page. FULL of pictures and Exploring from around Arizona. I have been greatly upping the reader ship to that page. http://exarizonagobensonbobcats.blogspot.com I can see easier why people want to visit that very page, than this one. But I am still very glad that so many of you read this page!
Where are you Exploring today??
So just lately the local school principal stepped down from her position. Slowly the reasons why are coming out to the public. Although this little town is good at holding it's secrets. We have been learning more from other local papers than the one here that usually is not even worth the paper it is printed on. Something about her the principal, and a 17 year old male football player her husband, a local police officer was also involved and so was a booze. Of course the town is full of stories. Here is what I posted about it all earlier on my local page. Hours ago actually, and I have to say I am very disappointed that no one wants to argue with me about it all. O yes before all this, over a year ago, this school was graded with an A plus ranking. The best of the best. The best in the area even. Just had to add that in for my rambling to make more sense.
Not really a vent but some thoughts on Benson Schools. Please read all of this before you reply because I am in NO WAY dissing our great school system or any of the members of facility here. I will attempt to keep this short. Attempt is the key word. : First off and for most The Benson school's are nothing short but amazing! All three of our kids had a very hard go in there last school in Washington state, and they LOVE going to school here. I work in... Tucson 5 + days a week, but there is not enough money in the world to get us to pull our kids out of the local schools and move closer to Tucson. Our youngest has ODD and the teachers here actually get how to talk to him and to treat him like a person. I have been impressed with every teacher and worker I have meet at this school. And past alum seem to have learned a ton for sure. Here is my butt.... We are overly proud of an A+ ranking don't get me wrong, this is amazing. BUT the ranking is brought to us by the government. Should we really be proud of such a high ranking brought to us by the same people that are trying to ban the confederate flag for the wrong reasons and do not want you to smoke in your own car? Before you answer this take a 2nd look at the top nation leaders and those in our own community. Maybe those same officials that are setting the high standards are also training workers to disarm any wrong doings that might happen with students. Now don't go pulling your kids out of school. But instead of letting the school do ALL of the teaching the way they want it learned always continue education at home, on hikes, on the road at the gas pump==== help me figure out how much I will get back after giving the cashier 2 bucks for gas or how many miles per gallon our car really makes after daddy worked on the engine! Always teach them. And teach them to question everything. Now they don't need to be complete rebels any more than they need to be complete mindless rule following sheep. Maybe if they were to question things, workers in the school could not so easily take advantage of the students. NOW a few quick thoughts on the recent allegations on the Benson faculty member on students.....
It was getting kind of long for one Facebook post here so I broke this one up ;)
....... I am not saying any worker touched any students BUT I know way back when When I used to get lots of traffic tickets I would NEVER willing turn in my licence/step down from driving That would mean in my eyes and the laws, that I was guilty. I fought all the tickets in court until the bitter end, when I had so many traffic tickets I had to give up my driving licence. On a similar note, when we lived in Queen Creek AZ many years ago the local Principal got picked up by the FBI for images on his computers. Did we know he was guilty? Nope, did we keep the kids in the school long enough to find out Hell no! Just guessing he had committed a number of crimes at that school and others before he got busted by the FBI. Does the FBI knock down the doors of any old principal? Is this the first time the local faculty member has done something like this? Since she was working with her husband a cop and contributing booze also, probably not. IF we allow this whole thing to be swept under the already full Benson rug than we are in sense allowing her to move on with more experience in what not to do in the future in another small town full of kids. But what do I know
If I actually get any thought provoking responses to all of this I will post them on this very page! I know I posted about the A school ranking in the past and got blasted for days on end about how I was making fun of the school. Nope just our government.
**Wally World is going to stop selling certain guns in all stores. But it's not a political issue---- Freakin' BS! Just like not selling the "Confederate flag?"**
**"I bet if Jehovah's Witness sold pot, more people would open there doors!"**
**"I would stop drinking coffee but I am not a quitter!"**--Think this is some where in the A A 12 step program also.
**"Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Pervert!"**
MANY more of you need to learn this!
