ABOVE IS THE JUNK-FILLED ROOM WHERE THE ADMINISTRATION THREW STEVE KEMP TO TEACH SEVERELY-RETARDED CHILDREN. ONE IS IN A WHEELCHAIR; ANOTHER IS LYING DOWN IN FRONT OF HIM.
THIS ROOM FILLED WITH JUNK REFLECTS WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION THINKS IS AN APPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENT FOR RETARDED CHILDREN; AND ADMINISTRATORS THINK IT IS OK TO PUT A TEACHER WITH THEM WHO HAS NO TRAINING IN THE AREA AND WHOM THEY GAVE NOT A SCINTILLA OF ORIENTATION.
NO WONDER THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER IS SUING THE HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SCHOOLS FOR ITS MISTREATMENT OF SPECIAL-NEEDS CHILDREN.
STEVE KEMP IS STILL ON SUSPENSION AS FAR AS I KNOW. SOMEBODY REPRESENTING THE ADMINISTRATION CALLED TO URGE HIM NOT TO MENTION A CERTAIN SUBJECT. That's a violation of his free speech rights. It is also a symptom of how scared the administration is of his blog. I hope to the Lord he doesn't let them squeeze him into dismantling it. lee
Folks, I have been busy the last couple of days trying to help a woman whom the administration had savaged. I mostly tried to buck her up, and I put her in contact with a couple of teachers I had helped in their fight to keep their jobs for them to give her moral support. Both succeeded, by the way in keeping their jobs.
You know why? Both reared up and fought. If you roll over, the administration with board collusion will simply gut you. Don't put up with that. Rise up and fight.
I have lined up a couple of lawyers for the woman if she wants one. She does not want to go public yet. That's when I shake, rattle, and roll. Going public turns over the rock and makes the cockroaches run out into the light of day. They don't like it at all. lee
