Re: “Find the Inlander's Annual Manual on stands now

I would've thought that a far left leaning publication would make a show of diversity with its cover models.

Re: “First Day of School

This is all really great. However feeding first graders "trix" cereal filed with artificial food coloring and high sugar levels does not support academic needs. The food system in schools needs immediate attention.

Re: “Enough is Enough

Can the author explain what "the courts have not caught up" means? Should courts relax due process protections or the burden of proof for criminal defendants accused of sexual assaults? What is the author suggesting?

If one is accused of a crime, the burden is not on the defendant to prove his/her innocence.

Re: “Enough is Enough

To many college students exercise bad judgment. To many college students make poor decisions then blame others for their poor decision making. More than one court has ruled, consent given while drinking is still consent. When you get drunk/high/stoned and make poor decisions it is as much your fault and anyone else's. Take a little responsibility for your own behavior and safety once in a while.

If college students are considered so mentally incompetent after one beer that they cannot be trusted to make intelligent decisions regarding their own safety or behavior, they should not be allowed to drink under any circumstances.

If your judgment is so impaired that a mere whiff of alcohol makes your drawers hit the floor in the presence of any other person, you have serious problems. If a drink or toke makes you a sex fiend, maybe you should seek help. You have poor impulse control and should probably be institutionalized or undergo some sort of psychological retraining at the very least.

Every false report of rape after a night of drunken debauchery makes it that much more difficult for victims of actual crimes to be heard. Every false drama portrayed in papers like the Inlander and Rolling Stone makes it impossible for actual victims of crime to get justice.

Institutional cover-ups??? Are you kidding??? The REAL problem is the false narrative from the far left making justice for actual victims impossible. Duke Rape case anyone??

Re: “Getting Schooled

The real question for the unions that represent District 81 workers is why? Why do classified staff make so little and teachers make so much? Where was their representation for the last 25 years?

A starting teacher makes at least $29.22 per hour, a 25 year district employee makes $14. That is the best example of socialist fairness I have ever seen. That starting teacher works 150 days a year, the average full time employee works 200-210 days a year. The teacher gets full time pay for partial employment and still wants MORE.

Those teachers treat the typical classified staffer poorly and they work hard to cheat the classified staffer out of every dollar possible in pay and benefits. Then, in a shining example of socialist stupidity they blame the school district for the vast pay imbalance caused by their contract demands.

When all is said and done, the teachers will have treated themselves to yet another unearned four day weekend and a massive pay raise and the classified staff will still work for peasant wages in an environment where they are constantly reminded by the "educated elite" that they are in fact 2nd class citizens in the world of education.

Why are they so ashamed to admit what the "average teacher" makes? It is huge when you consider how little the average teacher actually works in a given year. They start with maybe 150 days of class time, they work five hours a day teaching and they get weeks and weeks of vacation and sick during the school year. If you get 120 days of work out of a teacher is it a feat rivaling Everest.

When you average their pay into an hourly wage, they are doing quite well, especially for people who get two three day weekends a month, weeks off for Christmas/Kwanzaa/Festivus/ Easter/Thanksgiving/Mayday/Che's birthday and every other holiday real or imagined AND three months off in the summer.

I guess $750,000,000.00 in new schools won't buy loyalty or productivity from some people.

Re: “Enough is Enough

The concern I have about colleges and universities investigating reports of sexual assaults is the total disregard for due process.

In addition, college administrators are not law enforcement and are not trained to properly conduct sexual assault investigations.
