David Peercy has scored a mighty win in the APS school board mini-election.
With that victory comes the end of any hope of an open and honest public discussion of ethics, standards and accountability in the (leadership of the) APS, for at least the next four years.
There is no one in the entire leadership of the APS, who is more responsible than David Peercy for the ongoing double standards of conduct in the APS; higher standards of conduct for students than for administrators and school board members.

role modeling clause
As the Policy Committee chair, Peercy steadfastly refuses to hold an open and honest public discussion of the role modeling clause and the responsibilities for the senior-role models in the entire APS.
The board struck their role modeling clause more than a decade ago in order to mitigate their "legal" liability as role models.

The Journal, despite the retirement of Kent Walz, will remain an ally in Peercy's effort to cover up the ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS.
Frankly, the Journal has no choice. How can they report credibly upon the ethics, standards and accountability crisis without first reporting credibly on their failure to report upon it heretofore.
She told me that if I could get a few hundred signatures of people who care about ethics, standards and accountability in the leadership of the APS, she might consider looking into it.
I wasn't able to gather that many signatures - but that's a whole nother story.
