An Open Letter to Every Reporter Who's Beat Includes the APS

This letter will be forwarded to the Trib, the Journal, KRQE, KOAT, and KOB, with the request that it be forwarded to every reporter on their staff with a stakeholder interest in the APS.

Dear Reporter,

No one has ever argued against the administrative accountability audit proposed by board member Marty Esquivel.

The audit is the single best thing that could happen to restore public confidence in the leadership of the APS.

Yet the leadership of the APS, except for Marty Esquivel,
has prevented the audit from being discussed.

Even though board member Robert Lucero himself, admitted that the audit results would constitute an excellent tool for the next superintendent to use (in cleaning out the good ol boys who are running the APS, so badly). He is on record saying the audit should be done before the next superintendent is hired; for blatantly obvious reasons.

I am offering each of you the opportunity to post a response
to a question. I am hoping that you will agree to accept as
the standard against which your response will be measured,
the APS student standard of conduct; the Pillars of Character Counts, which in circumstances such as these, requires an response that is candid, forthright, and honest.

Why do you think your particular media outlet
will not cover the controversy surrounding the possibility of
an accountability audit of the leadership of the APS;

an audit which in all likelihood,will not leave a single
senior administrator or board member left standing?

(With the exception of Marty Esquivel of course;
the first public servant in the history of the APS
to propose such an audit.)
