  • Well I guess she has really helped increase student achievement (not) all the while increasing cost per student–now at $18,200 per the ASD CAFR.

  • A falling Starr from a failing education system.

  • When a politician quits to “spend more time with their family,” it usually means there is an underlying issue that they don’t want to make public.

  • Issue: With fear of Covid gripping the land for the foreseeable future why do we need to continue to pay for well over a billion dollars of school infrastructure? Time to eliminate expensive buildings and develop some quality virtual programs. Education is the goal, not real estate.

  • For your role, Madam School Board President, in presiding over the transformation of Anchorage’s education system into a grossly underperforming, overpriced union-management racket, may we wish you a very speedy journey south, the farther south, the better.

  • The school board has manifestly mismanaged the school system to the point that the employees get all the benefit and the students are the pawn to further benefit the employees. Criminal, in any view.
