Another former school board member speaks out

Former APS School Board Member David Robbins posted an op ed in the Journal this morning, link.

He thinks the current board needs to get their act together.

He regards the kerfuffle as an "avoidable distraction" but then goes on to point out that "several issues raised by this mess are unresolved";
  • a chief financial officer on administrative leave, 
  • the reputation of Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Karen Rudys remains sullied, and 
  • we still have the board president’s daughter placed in a senior position by the former superintendent.
Robbins argues;
these items deserve swift action by the board and should not be left to an interim superintendent to address.
He insists that "the real question" has to do with school board member loyalties.

It's a good question; it bears looking into.

Along with all the other aspects of APS' dark side;
the ethics, standards and accountability crisis*, of which
Robbins was part and parcel.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

*the school board's lack of real, honest to God accountability
to any standards at all; as their record clearly, clearly shows.
