If at first you don't succeed....

Bad news. I had a lettte4r from the FBI saying they can't take the Hillsborough County schools case. They sent the complaint to the Secretary of Education, Smith.

All is not lost. I can now nag the living daylights out of Smith.

I can't scan in these communications because my printer and scanner are down. lee

The Sec. of Education is probably in cahoots with Hillsborough, so once again the school district gets away with its criminal behavior!

what office did the letter come from? What was their excuse?
WHY can't they take it when the criminal activity is WORSE than the one we examined from the county over? I am baffled by that. Not really. Hillsborough County has a locked in CRIMINAL ELEMENT with protection all the way to the White House.

You talk about bullying of teachers by administrators. Well, word on the street at all the schools is WATCH OUT if the principals at either Van Buren or Jennings get transferred to your school. Both principals are terrorizing their staffs. At one of the schools Human Resources had to swoop in and interview the teachers to get to the bottom of it. Well, the AP took the fall for the principal and she got transferred, but the principal stayed put, so the teachers who were brave enough to speak up about the bullying were stuck there with a principal they had complained about, and the principal was going to go gunning for them, so most of them transferred and got out of there. Supposedly the prinicpals at those two schools are so bad, yet the downtown administration covers for them. Teachers who speak out get the shaft, because they end up having to live with the principal who they complained about and are marked down on their evaluations. The ROSSAC people protect the principals and could care less if they terrorize their teachers. Word on the street is: Do NOT transfer to Jennings or VanBuren and if one of those principals gets transferred to your school, run like hell, because those two principals are horrible. They are incredible micro managers and do nothing but heap criticism on your head and give you bad evaluations if you don't do as they say. Horrible, nasty human beings! Beware everyone who reads this blog! Beware of the two thugs that run Van Buren and Jennings!

Both principals are named JoAnn, the ugliest and stupid name in the history of the planet. No wonder both of them are mean as hell, since they have fugly names like spinster librarians! They probably got teased their whole lives for having such awlful names. They got bullied, and so now it is their turn to bully their teachers. What horrible human beings they must be!

It's no accident they are doing this. They're trying to weed out teachers that don't 'fit the system'. It's done to further degrade the system. maryEllen has put in place all the nasty principals and teachers possible. Now she's working on the rest. It's insidious.
Lee we need to rewrite the complain to the FBI. There's a BAD problem that they can go into one school but not this one. They must havc missed the point somehow. Why is Hillsborough left to dangle on it's own when other places get help?

Yeah, you hate bullies, but you will bully someone because of their name. All spinster librarians should be annoyed.

You're pathetic.

Hey, dummy, people in power positions hold the power, so saying bad things about them is like David hitting Goliath. When you are the big wig, you have to take the slings and arrows. That goes with wanting to be a leader. Obama and Bush have to take the slings and arrows, but when someone in a power position throws arrows at the little people it is pure evil and crappy. That is the difference. I believe bullying occurs when the bully is stronger in some way (physically or more important position). A mouse can not bully a tiger. It can only squeak, and that is what we are doing on this site, dummy! Don't you have any intelligence?

This is cut and pasted from the bullying legislation that Lee keeps "squeaking" about.

Perhaps I'm too dumb to follow - can you please identify the bits where it is outlined that bullying can only occur from this position of strength about which you write?

I love discussing the issues! Thanks for not bothering to reply.

The definition of bullying by the district doesn't necessarily erase what the person said about the top people. People in power positions probably can be bullied at times, but overall they are in a position to put a stop to it quickly and easily whereas people below them can't always stop it.

ROSSAC has never had anyone who is willing to question the top level administrators, so they are in shock that someone like Lee dares to question them and hold a mirror to their antics.
