APS Board soon to be actually accountable.

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education recently passed for themselves, a Code of Ethics. The code, by their own admission, is completely unenforceable.

There is in fact, no standard of conduct that applies to Board Members and senior administrators, that can be enforced against their will. It could be argued that, they are not even accountable to the law, spending untold numbers of tax dollars on litigation excepting them from actual accountability even to the lowest standard of all.

That may change. Legislation, link, just passed in Santa Fe, will include the APS Board under the auspices of the Governmental Conduct Act.

I will have to wait until July 1st, 2010, to file an ethics complaint with the Secretary of State, over their abdication as role models of the APS Student Standards of Conduct. I suppose that, that Office will be too busy to deal with the issue, but its worth a try.
