We are here to support the blog by Dr. Sutherland on the bullying occurring to employees on the hands of Sorum and Breed.
We know of cases that are ongoing and Dr. Sutherland mentions a few examples. One example is an employee who was demoted upon reporting something that administration did not like and have stressed the employee to the point that they want to give up. The employee is basically made to settle for measly money but more important the district does what it can to discredit and basically ruin their record. Interesting the point made by Dr. Sims regarding employees who leave and may want to return and yet there is something placed on their file that does not allow it. Smells like bullying to us.
Dr. Sutherland hits it right when administration goes into a school and completely disrupts the processes that a principal may have setup because they don't like it. But interestingly enough the principals are only following what Sorum and Company have said to do. So let's see you make a change of programs in the middle of a semester and now want results because you are on the hot seat? Take Morningside Elementary with millions invested and no major results to see, you have the same administration on board since 2008 and nothing. But we know that Breed and the current admin are in the same sorority and so they are sisters who continue to harm children's education. We know that the director in 2008 had hands tied when attempting to correct the wrongs with the principal and Breed shut that down quick.
But back to bullying, we used to have a cultural diversity training that helped many employees bring out the bad apples in the district, the department dissolved and the employees reassigned, resigned or forced out. Now you no independent person investigating any incidents of anything. Take technology money issue, the employee was demoted and moved to another department. So Sorum and Breed get to move up and get raises and yet are not producing the results. Tell us what improvements have been made since Johnson came on board and these same individuals were there? How do you justify their evaluations when the district is sinking?
Dr. Sutherland, the best way to deal with bullying is having independent counsel look into the cases or have OPS report only to the board and not administration. The other is for you to ask questions at meetings about cases and the results of such cases of which you have mentioned. Let the facts come out. When palazzolo brought his case, the case was talked about in open session and when we all heard the information something did not seem right, that's where Vasquez and you voted against the firing because it sounded fabricated. Johnson left knowing that the district would go into litigation and here we are almost 1 million and counting. There are many voices that are silent because they fear retaliation and being bullied. We need to cut these two out and help save the good people that are still in the FWISD. You cannot expect results when your employees are being accosted by Sorum and Breed. Our children are suffering because of the talent we are losing and yet we keep hearing it and watching it unfold. We need board members to take charge and make FWISD attorneys accountable for the money they spend, 1.5 million is for bullying and ruining the lives of employees.
THANK YOU DR. SUTHERLAND FOR VOICING THIS OUT. Now we now know that INOK has been ISOK to BULLY!
