Memorial Day Dishonour

For more than two centuries, Americans have offered monumental sacrifices in defense of human and civil rights. We set aside one day a year to reflect on the privileges we enjoy, bought and paid for with
the blood and suffering of countless brave souls.

Yet for some in the APS, Everitt, Maes, Lucero, Modral; Memorial Day means only that school is out and it will be exponentially harder for teachers and parents to organize in defense of their rights.

The gradegate grievance hearing could have happened before the end of the school year. The results of the investigations into the APS Police Department could have been released. Evidence of felony criminal misconduct could have been turned over to the DA. An honest accounting of the renovation of the Uptown Complex could have been furnished, ...

Their self serving behavior is shameful.

Perhaps more shameful is the behavior of the rest of the administrators in the APS, who are hiding in their foxholes rather than stepping up and fighting against the corruption and incompetence in the leadership of the APS.

Shameful is the dishonour that they tolerate and enable, this Memorial Day.

Their continuing shame is shared
by the editors of the Journal and the Trib.
