Yesterday, all of the school board candidates had an opportunity to meet with representatives of the unions of the people who tend to the needs of 98,000 of our sons and daughters every day in school.
I promised them a seat at the table where decisions are made.
By which he meant I think; if the demands of Reason and Power conflict,
Power prevails. It is true, still.
In what must be among the oddest of ironies, the laws supposed to
protect us from the abuse of power, do not apply to the powerful.
Next Thursday night, the APS School...
The question is not so much whether a new boardroom is worth $625,920;
as it is; should we be spending that much money unnecessarily; when
there are so many other more important needs?
Lest you worry that your representatives on the board are not on top of
I aver; the leadership of the APS offers no opportunity to be held
accountable for their character or their competence. And further, that
that is proof of mal, mis, and non feasance as public servants; and as
role models for 98,000 of our sons and daughters.
Am I to prove...
Sir,If your interest is in accountability for
APS Leadership, and not in empire building, tell the papers to tell the
truth. Allow stakeholders to decide whether to replace the
current leaders with those who will hold themselves honestly
accountable to a...
The public forum is no longer on the agenda of meetings of the APS
Board of Education. The Board and Superintendent do not want the
broadcast version of the truth to include their individual refusal to
be held honestly accountable for their character or their...
There is evidence of a deliberate distortion of the truth in the
broadcast version of ten public forums; the forums during which the
school board members and superintendent each refused to hold themselves
honestly accountable to a meaningful standard of conduct.
During the last board meeting, the Public Forum was moved 'outside of
the APS board meeting" by putting it before the agenda.
By their reasoning, the record of the public forum could then be edited
from their “broadcast version of the truth”.
And their constituents would...
The question is, can you demonstrate that you are honestly accountable to any meaningful standard of conduct?
The Leadership of the Albuquerque Public Schools should be able to respond by saying, yes. As stewards of the public trust and treasure; they should have created a...
According to the Journal, the Commander of the APS Praetorian Guard,
Gil Lovato, failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct by
a fellow APS administrator.
That illustrates the problem with the APS Leaders’ ownership of the
system by which they are held...
Public servants wield a great deal of power. They yield it legitimately
only in the interest of the people whose power it is. The power is
entrusted to them for no other purpose. Any other use is illegitimate;
it is an abuse of power.
Our power is certainly not entrusted to...
The citizens of Albuquerque have lost control of the power that they
entrusted to APS Leadership. The power has been usurped by the board,
the administration and Modrall.
The eight men and women and their lawyers who run the Albuquerque
Public Schools refuse to be held...
I decided to find out if the Journal and Tribune would tell the truth
if I paid them to.
I submitted a suggested text for my advertisement. It included mention
of the APS ethics scandal, and the refusal of the Journal or Tribune to
investigate or report upon it.
Can charter schools backfill into schools with declining enrollments?
It makes too much sense mathematically, to not ask.
So why won't the Albuquerque Public Schools Leadership respond to the question?
