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?
As role models for 98,000 of our sons and daughters, do the leaders of APS have any responsibility to model accountability to the standard to which they hold students accountable?
Because if they do; they aren’t.
The new, lower standard of conduct written and adopted by...
“The Superintendent or the Superintendent's designee will maintain a system of evaluation for all personnel in compliance with the laws of New Mexico and the standards and procedures adopted by the State Board of Education.”
According to the APS Website, the policy...
The Tribune’s veteran education reporter, Susie Gran, scooped her Journal rival Amy Miller, when for the first time in either paper, Gran revealed that there is a school board election coming up. She also revealed that there are only 10 days for voters to discuss the...
Mayor Chavez claims an interest in increased accountability in the
Leadership of the Albuquerque Public Schools. He claims it a lot.
The Leadership of the APS is currently refusing to be held accountable
to any meaningful standard of conduct.
All Mayor Chavez has to do to...
We will teach students that their character counts.
They will then inspire their teachers to embrace character and courage and honor.
The teachers will inspire their principals, who will inspire the superintendents, who will inspire the board.
How could it go...
There are two unresolved issues at Rio Grande High School.
I will begin by acknowledging no personal experience at that school. I will bow to any controverting fact.
The first issue is that it is yet to be resolved; who is in charge at the school, the staff or the...
