And here is the transcript of Susan Wallace’s statement. It was really good.
I started coming to these meetings to support my neighbor whose son was bullied repeatedly. My first meeting was in March. I notice you’ve all started to pay more attention to the speakers since that fateful meeting. Thank you for picking up your heads and giving us, the general taxpaying public your attention.
Since I started paying attention much has come to light.
You guys, the steward’s of educating our community’s youth, have some issues. Promoting teachers and administrators that practice the three D’s. Remember from last month? Delay, Deny then Discredit? I’ve learned of instances of abuse that should have been brought to CPS. Injuries that a parent would most certainly get jail time for and you guys are ok with promoting the administrators and allowing the abusive teachers walk away? I’ve often looked around this room when crowded with kisd employees and wondered how many of them were promoted following the suppression of assaults on campus?
Then there’s the crazy decisions on spending. First off to continue to do business with the company that vetted our outgoing superintendent… Dr? Mr? Where is he anyway? Then telling taxpayers that hiring the son of a friend of Dr? Mr? to do the in house legal work will save us money? Prove it!
Telling special needs parents who request cameras in classrooms (legally required!) that there isn’t the money but seeing clear to giving a disgraced employee three quarters of a million dollars?
Can’t find the money for the Spanish immersion program but surprise surprise 4 months later you have money for social sentinel.
How about instead of hiring another person to deal with bullying you get your administrators to do their jobs?
“We are going to focus on katy isd because every problem that exists in public education exists in Katy isd including the deterioration of the quality of the school board.” George Scott October 2015
When can we expect a general update on the search for replacement for Dr? Mr? Hindt?
There’s 30 seconds if anyone would like to respond? (no response)
‘every problem that exists in public education exists in Katy ISD including the deterioration of the quality of the school board.’ -George Scott, October 2015.
‘There is a staggering lack of institutional courage in today’s modern school board. It’s not that school board members are bad people on a personal level. They have allowed themselves to become convinced that state law denies them the authority they need to hold administrations accountable. Unfortunately, too many members of school boards are too intellectually lazy or have become over-impressed with their community status as elected leaders that they have surrendered their actual power at the altar of collegiality and teamwork with the very professionals they are supposed to hold accountable.’ -George Scott, October 2015.
‘…’ -George Scott, June 2018, as a sitting Katy ISD board member when asked whether he read the Superintendent’s dissertation that is being investigated by UH for plagiarism. You can watch that video here.
