TRUSTEE AVILA'S FIRM UP FOR CONTRACT

Sutherland has reported on her blog that the board agenda includes an item for Byrne, a firm headed by Avila up for a contract.

It seems cronyism is alive and well and we knew this would happen.  It's not secret and it doesn't seem to bother anyone.  So now the games begin on who will be making money from our district.

Wouldn't surprise us if he votes for it but even then he has the votes to get it approved from the Mafia Gang.

Will Ramos and Paz go along with it?

We shall see.

CORRUPTION ALIVE AND WELL IN FWISD


THE POWER STRUCTURE IN FWISD

Tell me if this does not look like the system we have in place now!

Play place a name by the bird !



THE POWER THAT BINDS AND CRIPPLES US

We see many people commenting on the corruption, nepotism and unethical parts of our district.  We see injustices, workplace bullying and overall bad business being shown by every leader from the Board to Central Admin.  
We know politics plays a big role as we noticed in the recent elections and so we are bound by the people who run this city and ultimately the school district.  Nothing happens without their consent as we noticed with the AHHS scandal and others.  Also how contracts are handled and so forth.  The answer lies deep underground.

Below is an article by D Magazine back in 1995 that still rings true to what our city is and what the picture below shows.. A Cartel living amongst us....

BIG RAISES BRING NO DIRECT EXPERIENCE

We had to ponder on the newly selected assistant superintendents, which were just, washed a bit and made shiny.  But we all know it was all a ploy to sell us people who have no direct experience at all levels of education.  Interestingly enough when assistant principals are chosen they must have a principal certificate to be considered.  Yet our new assistant superintendents do not have a superintendent certificate... but yet are in positions that have a direct effect to our students.  Yet when you look at their experiences they have no other experience than their respective certification.  Some will say Washington has all levels but yet no one can provide the successes created that will help us.

THOSE OF YOU WHO MAY KNOW,  TELL US WHAT THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE DONE TO IMPROVE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT!

IN THE AGE OF DEFICITS, MORE RAISES FOR THE TOP

So the votes, if we watched correctly, 6-3 to give raises to administrators and a new hire.  No surprise that the gang voted together.

So the change that Tobi Jackson stated is empty because the House of Cards continues it's doing.

Tell us how this is logical to be giving more money to the people at the top and when we are in need of teachers we are not even being competitive.  Tell us Board Members where teacher raises will fit in when you vote on the budget next month?  I am sure that you will have an excuse not to give teachers a raise because there is no money.

The other side is hiring or promoting when you have no plan in place going forward nor goals nor anything.  There is a leadership vacuum that is being taken advantage of by Linares and Company.  Those of you who voted in favor have no dignity.  You keep on with the same people that have brought us where we are and you are fine with it.

What a shame....

Thank you Dr. Sutherland for your stance and once we have the video available we will post it.  Thank you to Trustee Ramos and Paz for joining the crusade....

UEA are you eating crow now?  your beloved Jackson has completely brought on an administrator that uses a bull horn to chide students and anti-teacher.  Shame on you as well.

HIRING INCOMPETENCE AHEAD OF NEW SUPERINTENDENT

We are fresh off the elections and the administration is once again maneuvering to keep the same people in place and secure their spot.

Thanks to Dr. Sutherland we know that some people will be getting promotions and one that is coming back.

So tell us how their qualifications have helped improve our students.  Tell us how many people were interviewed for the position and their qualities?  As a board member I would ask very poignant questions to make sure we did not pass over really qualified people.

Does Molinar need more money to fix up her wardrobe?  I mean if that's the case we can get donations to get her a few sizes bigger.

So more raises to the top... but Cherie, our friend, is coming back.  Guess she couldn't handle it in Dallas?    So tell us that after two years she is now qualified to be asst super?  You need at least three years to be a principal but guess if you have connections you get fast tracked.  What achievements does she bring from her current position?  What does she bring from EHHS?  But we knew this would happen because of her connections to Jackson.  (I guess Jackson likes to also play with residence policies.. so happens that Ms. Washington lives in Mansfield, Tx and not even in the district.)  Interesting how laws and policies only apply to certain people and not all..)

Dr. Sutherland is correct, the new Super should choose his people.  Do board members really ask themselves why we are in the state we are?  Do you not realize that the same people you are promoting are the ones that have contributed to the current state of the district?  I guess Continuous Improvement means nothing if you keep recycling the same thing.  In this case we recycle crap over and over.  Vote NO Dr. Sutherland for these positions.  So Tobi, will you vote for change or vote favoritism?  Also why are there no hispanic being promoted, is the pool that shallow that we can't get better?

NO REAL CHANGE COMING SOON

If you are keeping up with results, it looks like the board will stay as is unless there is divine intervention.. which seems unlikely

Another four years that we as teachers have to endure with a divided board and now the fight to get a superintendent.  Low voter turnout favors the money elite and so it happened in this election.  For some reason people are not hungry for anything different.

We hope Sutherland pulls it out because we need someone who can at least voice our concerns and hear us out.
