If you stand alone for long enough, you have to begin to wonder why.

I seem to be the only one who would argue that;

If a member of the leadership of the APS will not stand up and pledge honest accountability as a role model of the Student Standard of Conduct,

by which is meant,
honest accountability to a nationally recognized, accepted,
and respected code of ethical conduct,

it can only be for one or both of two reasons.

The only two reasons that these people will not stand up as role models of the student standard of conduct;

  1. they lack the courage, and or
  2. they lack the character.

Now if there is any other reason at all, what is it?

Wouldn't you suppose;
some one of the people whose character and courage are
being besmirched,
would point to the third reason in defense of their character?

It takes character and courage
to step up as a role model of character and courage.

Any member of the leadership of the APS who will not step up
as a role model of the Pillars of Character Counts!

does so because they lack the character and the courage to
do so.

Retaliation. Harassment. Illegal firings. Bad economy. Risk to your family. Career future. Stress. Just wanting to be in the background.
Many teachers over the years have tried to "push back" in APS and got their ass handed to them. I am one of those... many times.
This is supposed to be America. APS does npot support free thought, student safety, freedom of expression, nor do they want to do more than cover their ass.
Sad...but true.
When they know there's more than 1 unhappy teacher meeting with another (or with the union), then the game gets really vicious.
