We know that money talks big in FWISD as does Fort Worth for that matter. The promise by the Cultural Savior Ramos, was to create a better environment and recognition of what needed to be fixed in the district. What we have gotten for the past 3 years is more of the same and then worse. The man who prides himself in training the board on cultural matters, etc. has been driving his own district into haves and have nots for his own benefit and those that have his allegiance. Yes that includes many politicians at all levels of government because they condone what is happening to our district. Recall that his kids would not be in FWISD had he not been on the board which was a political move because he would not have done so in the suburbs where he has a residence.
We have many upset parents on the Northside of town that Ramos represents, who have seen their own children chided and treated like second class members of this district. Students were invited to a forum at TCU recently and Paschal and Northside were well represented and more than that, treated to front and center, areas labeled for them etc. Well others from Diamond Hill, and other high schools were just to be seated on the side and around the rest. So the top two schools were given a grand welcome and the rest don’t matter. This is very symbolic of what has transpired in this administration and current leadership. They represent the two schools where they get their money support and of course great deals from TCU. Did you read the article about TCU adding a diversity official? That tells you a lot, let me guess will it be a Ramos or someone close to him that will fill the spot to make it look like, they have a minority friend and they are not racist?
So below you have a district employee who has an opinion about immigrants in an area where immigrant children attend schools in the lovely JP Elder. So Mr. Ramos, what say you about this type of bigotry?
Absent is the Superintendent who has become another puppet in waiting for the next big thing in Washington. He was hired to continue to cover up because if he had done what he promised then we wouldn’t be where we are now. Masking incompetence with a reading initiative and District of Innovation is not a solution it’s a cop out. We know the issues we have, nothing new, but have not had the leadership to deal with it head on. The plan will be in place, cronies will pocket money and children still behind. Hence the program that does not support dual language students who will go a year with support and the data shows that the students who were to outperform everyone else are lagging. Maybe he can at least focus on the blotted administration who has many Assistant Directors in small departments and do nothing because the little guys are doing the leg work. Example Student Discipline has a high paying director to sit and let the other do the work. When is the new HCM person going to change things? Once again admin is top heavy and yet they complain there is no money.
What we have FWISD are divisive tactics meant to disparage students who have no representation and those that continue to advocate are mistreated by the same people who stand up and say they are for the people they represent. So politicians like Espino, Romero and others have no spine and are merely ceremonial because they do not stand for anything. Only when it suits them will they say something but now they are silent. It seems that they follow the Trump tactic perfectly because the money flows from the same bigot spigot. So our new slogan is not On Purpose, it’s Let’s Make FWISD Great Again… that would resonate with many and shows you how our parents on the Northside are treated by the Ramos Corrupt Machine. RCM
