206 LinearFluid This would be good. As a sort of aside. I can tell you my own experience with School Superintendents. Both Parents were teachers. We had a Superintendent for a good 20+ years that retired. The one they brought in was horrible. I was out of school by then but my parents said how the Teachers hated him and rightly so. Well he was finally fired by the school board and in order to do so they had to buy him out of the rest of his contract which was a six figure sum. So talking with my parents one time and reminiscing the Superintendent came up. I decided to look him up. I found an article about him that was about his next job where he had the same thing happen. Hired as school superintendent and this time fired after his first year I think, of course he was again bought out for 6 figures. I can say for sure this guy was in it for the buy outs and not the kids. It is sad for education that these people exist and that school boards can be so naive.

236 MarshallGibsonLP Everybody remember the goatfuck that was the 1991 Louisiana Gubernatorial election? The one that had a runoff between a future convicted felon and a KKK Grand Wizard. The incumbent in that election was a man named Buddy Roemer, who was a Harvard educated centrist Republican, who didn't even make it out of the jungle primary. One of the main reasons was that he had royally pissed off the teachers in his first term by trying to institute teaching standards, which included classroom monitors to evaluate their teaching styles, etc. In response, they mobilized and made sure he did not get reelected. The point being, there was a time when school teachers had a voice in that state and didn't sit still for any government shenanigans. Sadly, I suspect that many of the teachers and their families voted for the people who are slamming them into the walls of the hallway.
521 DBergenmann I’ll answer every single question you have and more. Louisiana Uni-Student here: It’s all because Louisiana hates education.
208 Messisfoot Question: Was she really arrested for just asking why? Was she asked to leave and refused and then arrested? Or was she arrested the moment the question came out of her mouth?
76 montyxander I saw the video from this incident but did not realize that it happened in Louisiana. Now I am totally not surprised as the Louisiana educational system is notoriously corrupt. IIRC the FBI had to set up a satellite office in New Orleans to crack down on administrators straight up stealing money that was supposed to go towards the kids. So scummy, especially considering how New Orleans already had one of the worst school systems in the county.
59 choachy How are these school board people so ignorant that they don't even recognize their own mistakes. The School Board President AND the Superintendent BOTH addressed her directly, and allowed her to talk. What a shit show. Looks like a few people have some sense on this board, but not many. My wife is a teacher, and I don't see why teachers in this country are STILL treated so poorly. Education could not be more important, yet you still have corrupt people like this who refuse to listen to the troops on the ground and respect them for what they do.
17 joliedame I'm a teacher in a district in very similar circumstances. Our superintendent is actually suspended due to allegations of fraud, racism and intimidation. I also work for a severely undeserved school district. Our graduation rate is low and our entire district is on free lunch because the city population is very poor. I pay for almost everything in my classroom... Pencils, pens, paper, etc. The administration makes enough to buy a new car every couple of years. I can't even afford to buy a new dryer and have been air drying my clothes because my dryer died. I've worked for the same district for 6 years. I stay for the students, but HOLY FUCK, the administration makes it barely possible.
