There is an ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS.
It manifests itself in an occasional mini-scandal that the Journal does report; their coverage of the current situation at RGHS is a case in point.
However, there is a more fundamental scandal that the Journal will not investigate and report upon; the ongoing failure of the leadership of the APS to hold itself honestly accountable to any standards of conduct at all, even the law; the lowest acceptable standard of conduct.
The leadership of the APS has abdicated as role models of the student standards of conduct. They are not accountable, even in its smallest measure, as role models of the higher standards of conduct that they establish and enforce upon students.
The Journal didn't report it, when the leadership of the APS removed the Role Modeling Clause from their own code of conduct; the one that used to read;
In no case shall the standards of conduct for an adult,And the Journal won't report now, that the leadership of the APS refuses to hold an open and honest, public discussion about why they will not put the clause back into their standards of conduct.
be lower than the standards of conduct for students.
Just like the Journal won't report upon;
- the cover up of corruption in the APS Police Department, or
- their refusal to allow an independent standards and accountability audit, or
- their refusal to provide due process for more than 200 whistleblower complaints.
It could be as simple as simple corruption. Journal editor Kent Walz and School Board President Marty Esquivel sit together on the Board of Directors of the NM FOG and, who knows what else. School board heavy hitter Paula Maes is the President and CEO of the NM Broadcasters Assn. It could be as simple as the media covering the asses of their friends.
Or, it could be as complex as; how can the Journal investigate and report upon the ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS, without reporting how it is they have not investigated and reported upon the scandal heretofore?
It's not like any of the allegations and evidence are brand new, link.
