suhsdteacher, one of the amazing things about following this district, this board, is that for the most part it all seems to happen behind a veil. How is it that right now, people are having to speculate the who, the what, the when about a district superintendent, or interim superintendent? How is it that last night the public was told to channel their inquiries through someone else other than the interim superintendent? Does the public deserve more of an explanation of who is in charge of the district?
justateacher: perhaps that is why ms. castilleja was recommended to be the duty officer. brand knows her inadequacies and wants to capitalize on them. "see board, you need me". there are others with the expertise and who have the respect of all parties that could have been placed in a position of leadership - does our board know these facts? some do, some do and don't care, and some are simply not giving a d***.
all of this has caught the attention of many throughout the state - they are beginning to pay attention. i am reminded of the mayor of trenton who was, as reported yesterday, been arrested by the fbi. here the fbi had been monitoring the situation for over two years. the fbi had been taping secret meetings, phone lines, computer activity - the works. oh my!!!!!!!!!! i wonder if any of those secret meetings were held at a trenton miguels?
perhaps we have been so focused on the upcoming trials that we have not followed thru with facts and information that need addressing. the q and r will shortly be taken out of the equation. since the c and the m are not willing to investigate our concerns seriously and do the right thing - well perhaps it is time to gather up all of that info - , all of the - - -, all of the statements regarding - - -, all of the alleged - - -of brokers, all of the - - - - regarding mello roos,, all of the - - - and unanswered questions regarding prop o, all of the data regarding - - - , all of the rumored - - - tampering, all of the alleged - - - - - - - - . it is a shame when we as parents and taxpayers can no longer depend on those we vote into office to do the right thing. in truth we have no power other than the power of the judicial system.
we must remember 'the gandara' called them antagonizers, crazy and disgruntled x employees - funny the district attorney and fbi seemed to view them as credible - but in truth it was all of that ------------ info that made them credible. but remember before the antagonists, the crazy's and disgruntled x employees went to the fbi and the da - they went to the board - BUT THE BOARD TURNED A DEAF EAR, just as they are doing now,
so i ask you what is an antagonizer to do when they are ignored?
ding, ding, ding, ding, ding - ROUND 2
joepublic: excellent points. i can only imagine the bigger mess we would be in if the employees would not have had the protection of the union.
OK this has gone on long enough. WE DON"T WANT BRAND. We NEVER wanted Brand back. Brand has NEVER EVEN LIVED in our district. He is making MILLIONS off of our district, and his OTHER district he was fired from. You want to go into contract deals and payoffs? He made a BUNDLE off the iPad deal, which was ILLEGAL. Kids with iPads paid for by Mello Roos who don't live in Mello Roos area? WHERE is the transparency at Sweetwater? LOOK at the news! You can SEE the CRIMINALS on the Sweetwater School Board IGNORING THE PUBLIC they were voted in to represent. What a bunch of BAFFOONS, spending the money hand over fist, on WHAT? Sweetwater administration makes Bell look like AMATEURS. Brand is OVERPAID to the MAX. Time to POP the PINYATA and get the money back in the classrooms and school programs. Castilleja is a SHREW on a power trip, who will back stab ANYONE who obstructs her from shoveling more $$ into her bank account. Sweetwater School Board is a TOTAL FAILURE. NOBODY is secure in their teaching job. The classrooms are overcrowded. 14 furlough days WERE FORCED ON EVERYONE, and THESE IDIOTS are going to get the district into yet ANOTHER FAILING CONTRACT with ANOTHER money-sucking PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT PARASITE who has made himself a MILLIONAIRE off the money that was meant to educate the youth of SOUTH BAY. Hire LOCAL!!!! GET someone who CARES about SWeetwater. WE WANT A LOCAL for our new superintendent. Hire someone who has been a TEACHER. Hello? NO MORE PARASITES!! No more LEECHES!! No more LIVER FLUKES!! No MORE out- of-town LOSERS!!
News 10 completely got this story wrong - I sent this to the reporter and his bosses at the station.
I am deeply disturbed and disappointed by your reporting and the lack of research or fact checking that you applied to your recent story on a school board meeting at the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) office in Chula Vista on September 10th.
Having attended the entire meeting as a concerned parent and not part of any Occupy Sweetwater group, I was there to help police the elected officials who are supposed to be looking out for the best interests of our children.
What you failed to report is that the meeting at already been adjourned by the board president prior to Mr. McCann's request for the pledge.
You also failed to report that every person in that room promptly stood and placed their hands over their hearts and proudly pledged allegiance to the flag.
The same attendees,who having listened attentively for well over an hour to members of the community, teachers, parents, students, and taxpayers commenting for two minutes each on the ambiguous agenda item and recent decisions made by the board that have negatively impacted students and schools in the SUHSD but received no responses from the board.
There is a REAL story here that you completely ignored - perhaps because you based this story on a small clip that was chosen by Mr. McCann. That is not journalism. Perhaps you can learn from this and try and get the whole story next time and not just what one person wants you to hear
