School board well functioning, says Esquivel.

APS' School Board just had its annual election of officers.
The faces will remain the same.

School Board President
Marty Esquivel
said, "the
decision was an indication of
a well-functioning board" link.

If the name of the game is
covering up an ethics and
accountability scandal in
the leadership of the APS,
the board is functioning well.

They and the Journal are, in fact, doing a great job.

They are doing a great job of covering up;

  • keeping a Superintendent, rounded loathed by his subordinates, in office by offering him extended contracts and a half million dollar golden parachute, link, or,
  • evading an independent audit of executive and administrative standards and accountability, or
  • keeping role modeling off the agenda for more than a year in the Policy Committee, or
  • denying due process to hundreds of whistle blower complaints in the Audit Committee, or
  • Avoiding any audit that individually identifies corrupt or incompetent administrators, , or
  • hiding an open and honest accounting of spending at 6400 Uptown Blvd, or
  • obstructing justice by suppressing evidence of felony criminal misconduct involving APS senior administrators until well after statutes of limitation have expired, link, or
  • ...

Yeah, they're doing a bang up job, a bang up job of failing almost half the students in the district, while at the same time, covering the ass of every administrator and board member who has a hand in the failure.

I'm sure Hitler said his Gustapo was well functioning too.
Comparing Apples and oranges thinking.
Talking down to us, the public, as if we are ignorant.
Yes, Herr Esquivel, by all means your regime is functioning.
