Here is information from a staff member on the woes of Daggett MS.

The public school's  system of hierarchy does not work.  Building principals have way too much power than they should.  Teachers suffer abuse at the hands of bullying principals like Cynthia Miles Brown.  I think if there was an investigation into the things that have happened in this school the findings would be Shocking! 

The decisions Brown makes are so bad and have nothing to do with what is in the best interest of students and their families.  She has to buy her friends by giving them jobs they are not qualified to have.  She has people in admin positions that have never had  a classroom of their own.

Her assistant principal Katy Kirby was an inclusion teacher for 3 years and decided she was such an expert on general education and special education that she should be an administrator and tell teachers what to do that are far superior to her.  Three years of inclusion makes you an expert on nothing, not even inclusion!

Brown herself said she taught inclusion but what does that mean? Did she really teach inclusion? Rumor has it she never did but began her career at a charter school and never had her own classroom.

Brown plays favorites.  George Moore a friend of hers dresses like a slob and chews tobacco on campus, ties a child's legs to his chair and gets paid leave while she tried to get someone else fired because they caught her in several lies and instead of letting Brown get away with the lies, this person exposed her with proof!  Brown's sense of entitlement is astounding!  

Anyone who has worked with George Moore for even a few minutes knew putting him a special education classroom was going to be a disaster!  Brown has known him for years and thought this would be a good idea.  Another example of poor decision making.  

There have been at least 10 attacks on teachers/staff from students.  The teachers were treated like criminals and questioned like they were 12 years old.  She does not support her teachers.  

The behavior problems at Daggett Middle School are horrible!  If she tells you she'll check the camera footage to see what happened...a lot of them don't work.  She knows it; she has probably always known it!  How could she not?!

And what about the school climate survey?  Where is it?  It must be pretty bad of she's refusing to let the teachers, who deserve to know what it says, see it.

Every now and then she brings around a bag of chips or a pack of gum for her teachers to show how she supports them...how about a little more honesty and better judgement and a lot less entitlement?  These "treats" are obvious and it's not working..  You can't  be guilty at making such rotten decisions and cover them up with a "bag o chips."   "Oh never mind that she chose a tobacco chewing slob that ties a defenseless child to a wheelchair, she gave us chips and gum!"

A couple of months ago a substitute teacher was in one of the portable classrooms and administrators knew it was left unlocked and unattended.  As a result kids came in and trashed it!  A couple of weeks ago a teacher left his portable classroom unlocked and empty, students came in and a female student was molested!  That teacher was put on leave and hasn't been seen since.

In other words administrators can make the same mistakes, leaving a portable unlocked and empty, just like the teacher and it's okay.  Did they have any consequences for their poor decision?  Did they have any understanding for this teacher and say something like, OMG that could have happened when we did that!      instead of the other teacher's room getting trashed someone, a student, could have hurt because we did the same thing.   Maybe we should make a rule that all portables must be locked when unattended.

No let's ruin his life, be glad it wasn't us this time and give George Moore the same kind of punishment and he maliciously (there is no other way to tie a child with bailing twine) tied a helpless child to a wheelchair!  By the way, what happened to the aides?  They had to know/see something and they are still there!

There needs to be an investigation into this school and let the chips fall where they may!!!
