Alb Journal; two full pages on "schools", not one word on rolemodeling scandal in the leaderhip of the APS.

The leadership of the APS is "struggling" with a decision;
Are we role models, or are we not?

When the decision is finally made, the leadership of the APS
will find itself either;

  • quasi accountable to the lowest standard of acceptable conduct; the law,
  • or honestly accountable to a nationally recognized, accepted and respect code of ethical conduct.

The APS is at a fork in the road; the stakes could not be higher.

And rather than telling its readers about the upcoming decision,
the Journal prints lunch schedules and feel good stories about
the APS.

It is almost as if the Journal is in the pocket of one of its largest

The Journal makes so much money off taxpayers/the APS,
that the APS will not divulge the amount, even as required
according to the NM Inspection of Public Records Act.*

* Public Records request dated September 6, 2006
To: Custodian of Public Records, Albuquerque Public Schools
From: Charles MacQuigg

This constitutes a request for all documents, papers, letters, books, maps, tapes, photographs, recordings and other materials, regardless of physical form or characteristics, that are used, created, received, maintained or held by or on behalf of any APS and relate to public business, whether or not the records are required by law to be created or maintained and excluding any records whose request is prohibited by any agreement between myself and APS.

All records reflecting compensation or payments to the Albuquerque Journal and Albuquerque Tribune.

The request was ignored, in blatant violation of the law.
The only remedy; sue APS/Modrall.

Been there, done that.
