Blogger Joe Monahan quoted me in a post this morning, link, on the abject lack of availability of the leadership of the APS to the communities and community members they serve. I had concluded by pointing out;
There is an ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS.To Joe, and those who don't "know" about an accountability crisis, knowing is as simple as;
1. ask the leadership of the APS to produce any ethics or standards to which they regard themselves accountable in their public service, and thenFor example;
2. ask them to point to the due process(es) by which they can be held accountable to those ethics and standards.
1. Were the school board asked to point to any codes of ethics to which they claim accountability, they would have to name their own code of ethics; link.Ergo, because there are more, equally incontrovertible examples of their lack of honest to God accountability to any standards of conduct at all, even the law, there is an accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS.
2. Were they then asked to point to any due process at all, by which they might be held accountable to their own code of ethics, they would be compelled to admit that there isn't any.
Because the media, the Journal in particular, are part of a cover up, it is fair to say that there is an ethics, standards and accountability crisis and scandal.
Current Journal Editor-in-Chief Karen Moses is the person I find most currently most culpable. She and the Journal refuse to investigate and report upon the ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS.
If only to report that there is not one.
If only to report that school board members and senior administrators are honest to God accountable to meaningful standards of conduct and competence in their public service.
she cannot report upon the other.
