  1. Fascinating. The student representative to the school committee was silenced by the wind bag of wind bags - Brent Abrahamson - for comments regarding staff/administration attitudes and conduct. This is the same school committee that publicly trashed our guidance department in open meeting earlier this year. But really Brent, bashing a student!

    But what is really fascinating is the fact that two days after mentioning the name of Linda Levister, another Springfield wizard who has a nice cushy position, has been relocated to the elementary schools. I guess there must have been something to the student's claim.
    I wonder why, if there was an issue, she wasn't placed on paid administrative leave with a full investigation taking place. Could it be that it's because she is real good friends with Pat Gardner?

    With all the stupidity taking place with the superintendent do you suppose that the bobbleheads wish they may have selected one of the other candidates for superintendent of schools? Oh, that's right, the brain trust of the school committee didn't even bother to advertise for a new superintendent, never mind wasting their valuable time with a true search for one. They simply just waved their "wand-of-arrogance" and hired the so-ill-prepared and equally arrogant, Pat Gardner.
