LA i computing with other states for the most arrogant hurtful policies . Look at Arizona. Linda Lyon was president of the Arizona School Boards Association for the past year of tumultuous action in the state. Her office required neutrality. Now that she has "passed the gavel," she is again free to speak out and she blasts a legislator who has proposed a bill t o silence teachers and strip away heir First Amendment Rights.
