Seriously? You are telling staff the formal review is going on because I have a vendetta against charters? I didn’t cause your former head of school to pillage state funds. I didn’t cause a teacher to kick a student who SHOULD have an IEP. I didn’t draw up the documents to make you pay a judgment against Mosaica for $2 million dollars. I didn’t cause your standardized test scores to go down. I didn’t cause your board to fail to post minutes of their board meetings for years. I didn’t make you not have a Citizen’s Budget Oversight Committee. And I certainly have NO power over the DOE to put you under formal review in the first place. Do you want to know who can take full responsibility for all of this? Your board and your past and present heads of school.
Accountability starts with yourself. Perhaps you wouldn’t be in this predicament if you weren’t so busy trying to blame others for your own colossal mistakes. Get your special education department some training. Make sure all your teachers are certified. Stop being cheap with your funding. Stop lying to the DOE and the Charter School Accountability Committee.
I only write about ANY school that jacks things up so bad I can find it. If that means the DOE, or even your own website shows things that are jacked up, I will write about it. Don’t like it? Don’t mess up. There are mistakes and then there are careless errors. You excel at both. But don’t think for one minute I will give you the ability to think these are all just mistakes. Some of what you’ve done is intentional. You may think you can pull the wool over everyone’s eyes, but if not Thursday, one day your cockiness and arrogance will be your undoing. Only you can change that.
