Food, October 19: “A Recipe for Cooking with Kids”


Keep it Up, Kids

I now teach in Texas, but while teaching in Santa Fe, [Cooking with Kids] was such a great experience for kids and I learned how important nutrition is to education. The results were amazing. My students were so well behaved and engaged on days after Lynn [Walters] and her staff led them. It’s such a great program that cultivates our youths’ minds to learn about other cultures and develop a life skill. The program is worthy of grants, accolades and praise for sure.

Briefs, October 19: “Fill This Blank”


Who?

Thanks for this public service. I got a sample ballot and had no idea who to fill in the write-in [for Public Education Commission] with. ... I [asked] the Santa Fe County Democratic Party and they didn’t know.

Cover, October 12: “Martinez on Trial”


Me Too, You Guys!

The systematic pattern of anyone wanting public information from the Martinez administration staff members and appointees having to file a New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act is regrettable and I thank SFR for filing this lawsuit. The Public Education Department spokespeople are notorious for refusing to answer emails and phone calls as well. I had to file an IPRA request to obtain a list of appointees to the second teacher evaluation panel (the one that has never been publicized because folks on it actually thought for themselves). I requested the budget for the PED teacher summit held this summer and for the three teacher groups being formed and have not received that information from the PED spokesperson—yet another IPRA request must be filed to obtain this public information.

Correction

In “Hey Fela” (Oct. 12), Fiesta Fela’s organizer’s name was misspelled. The correct spelling is Kamajou Tadfor. SFR regrets the error.
