Albuquerque Public Schools Administrative Accountability Audit

An impartial audit of the leadership of the APS, targeted at uncovering waste, corruption, incompetence, and the practices that enable them; will be vigorously resisted, off the record, by the Leadership of the Albuquerque Public Schools.

They will enjoy the support of those in the privileged class who recognize absolute transparency in public service, and honest accountability for their misconduct, as threats to their existence.

You have to wonder why no one, not the governor, not the mayor, not the city council, not the Chamber of Commerce, not the Character Counts Leadership Council, and not the APS Education Foundation, will stand up on the record and say;

Let’s conduct an impartial audit of the leadership and administration of the APS. Let’s find out about the stewardship of over a half a billion tax dollars a year. Let’s examine the conduct of the senior role models for 98,000 of our sons and daughters. Let’s let the sun shine on public service in the public schools.

Superintendent Beth Everitt is responsible for the results of the audit. The School Board is responsible for the Superintendent's performance.
