Goodbye From AlanLast Updated on 2008-06-11 00:00:00 Why Miss Muller Gets Mad With Me
I think Miss Muller gets mad with me because she told me something that I didn't listen to her. I think she is a good teacher and I like her class. I like it because I can learn more English. In the last semester I always skipped this class because I thought the class was boring and it had a bad teacher. Now, I think different and she always helps me and I never skip. I remember one day she went to my house because I didn't work in the class. When I had some problems she called my mom and told her what is wrong with me. The last semester I had bad grades. I think I learned more English in the class of Miss Muller because I can write better than last semester. Thanks Miss Muller for helping me.

Arizona Proposal Would Prohibit Race-Based Student GroupsLast Updated on 2008-04-21 14:39:53
An Arizona legislative committee has passed an amendment to a routine homeland-security bill that would prohibit students at the state’s public universities and community colleges from organizing groups based on race. The amendment was approved by the Arizona House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday. It still awaits a vote by the state’s full House and Senate.

“This bill basically says, ‘You’re here. Adopt American values,’”... More »
