No legitimate purpose will be served by adopting the draft "code of ethics"

It is not even a step in the right direction.

The right direction is transparent accountability to meaningful standards of conduct and competence for public servants in the public schools.

The adoption of an inadequate "code of ethics", which by their own admission is completely unenforceable; is not a step in the right direction.

It is a feint;

a deceptive action calculated to divert attention from one's real purpose.

The truth is that the leadership of the APS has no intention of being held honestly accountable for their conduct and competence as public servants.

This afternoon, there will be a moment of truth for this board.

And in their individual moments of truth, each board member will cast a straight up vote for good or evil.

No legitimate purpose; no "good" purpose is served by voting to adopt a meaningless and unenforceable code of ethics.

Are you, or are you not, role models?

Is this really the example you will set for 90,000 children?
