Robbins admits APS is misleading public

School Board Member David Robbins was on KOAT's news, link. He admitted that interest holders were misled by the way "it was put into a press release" telling them, APS Supt Winston Brooks' contract did not include a raise - a concern I first raised, link, on December 23, 2011.

The persons responsible for the misinformation being "put into a press release" would like taxpayers to believe that because it wasn't his base salary that they increased, he received no raise.

It is a spin on the truth calculated "... to create beliefs or leave impressions that are untrue or misleading ..."; behavior prohibited in the APS student standards of conduct and engaged in (by students) at the forfeit of their good character.

According to KOAT, a unidentified district spokesperson said Brooks was "too busy" to answer the questions raised by Robbins' admission.
