APS Ethics Scandal is bad business

Stewardship of tax dollars is at least the second highest priority of administrators and board members.

There are two impediments to effective stewardship; corruption and incompetence. The corrupt will steal money, the incompetent will waste it. A vacuum of accountability is filled by corruption and incompetence.

Although honest accountability is fatal to both corruption and incompetence; the leadership of APS has chosen to provide none. In the APS, an administrator or board member who is corrupt and or incompetent, cannot be held honestly accountable for that corruption and or incompetence The school board and superintendent have repeatedly refused to hold themselves honestly accountable for their conduct.

A recent audit of the APS revealed that administrative evaluations were subjective and unrelated to promotion and step placement.

The leadership of the APS tolerates and enables corruption and incompetence. They are misdirecting funds which should be used in the education of 98,000 students.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the media will not report upon this situation or upon any other aspect of the APS Ethics Scandal.
