He needs put in prison, period. He's advocating intentionally poisoning kids with lead. What a horrid human being.
It's clear that the administrator hates kids and their parents. Bastard needs to go with no golden parachute. Shitheels at that meeting have to go too.
How is this not a crime? And, why haven't the people involved been arrested?
Bottom line: you're rewarded for saving money and fired for losing it. Acting ethically be damned.
This is why teachers are underpaid, more schools are falling apart and students are failing.
And now we're talking about adding teachers carrying guns to this.
I say this as these contaminated water stories keep coming out of the woodworks, but I seriously think the problem of Americans drinking water contaminated with heavy metals and other substances affects a double digit percentage of the population and may very well define entire affected community's aggressive and neurotic behaviours. We already know that can happen from lead lined gasoline.
What if it comes to pass that the aggression and anti intellectualism sweeping the country is because large numbers of people have undocumented brain damage brought on by all this heavy metal poisoning we're finding out municipalities have been hiding for decades?
What we have is a lot more nuisanced than it appears. The guys is a scumbag, but let's look at what's happening.
He looks at the purchase of these water stations and filters as a problem. They were bought with donations from parents and not through district funds. So eventually this is gonna wind up on his desk as an unfunded program and the filters will run out. He's seen shit like this before, that doesn't excuse his behavior but what is this district doing?
Where is the funding to remove lead from drinking water? Why are parents forced to shell it out? How can the district not create a line item for fucking water filters that someone else bought for them?
"whatever is cheaper"
Now that's the American way I know and loathe.
Dateline should do a new series, How to Catch a Bad Drink. MANY people would be genuinely surprised at the shit they are told is "safe" to drink.
Violence is about to jump for that demographic.
Don't forget this snippet:
>"While this gentleman is stating these things of, you know, let's only do non-filtered or whatever, he didn't come up with that plan," she said. "That's coming from higher up."
why didn't the water authority warn the schools about the lead? and where was the plan to fix the problem at the source? schools facility directors should not be in charge of water quality period.
