So, apparently they needed these kids to figure out the broad had no education or credentials.
What exactly is the point of going to college if all they teach you is SJW nonsense and employers don’t even check your credentials in the first place?
You might as well spend three years doing hookers and coke, then fake a resume and go work for the government.
And you’d get away with it, too, if it wasn’t for these dastardly kids!
A group of reporters and editors from the student newspaper, the Booster Redux at Pittsburg High School in southeastern Kansas, had gathered to talk about Amy Robertson, who was hired as the high school’s head principal on March 6.
The student journalists had begun researching Robertson, and quickly found some discrepancies in her education credentials. For one, when they researched Corllins University, the private university where Robertson said she got her master’s and doctorate degrees years ago, the website didn’t work. They found no evidence that it was an accredited university.
Wow, you got your management diploma? That’s going up on the fridge!
“There were some things that just didn’t quite add up,” Balthazor told The Washington Post.
The students began digging into a weeks-long investigation that would result in an article published Friday questioning the legitimacy of the principal’s degrees and of her work as an education consultant.
On Tuesday night, Robertson resigned.
“In light of the issues that arose, Dr. Robertson felt it was in the best interest of the district to resign her position,” Pittsburg Community Schools announced in a statement. “The Board has agreed to accept her resignation.”
The resignation thrust the student newspaper staff into local, state and national news, with professional journalists nationwide applauding the students for asking tough questions and prompting change in their administration.
One thing none of these articles talk about, however, is the obvious question of how something like this could happen in the first place.
I mean, we keep hearing that our schools are failing, that the budgets are too low, that students aren’t learning and so on. You would think that a revelation that schools are hiring random bitches as top administrators without even verifying that they know anything would be a pretty big scandal.
Instead, these useless “professional” journalists are focusing on the “feel-good” story about these student-journalists.
More broadly, what does it say about the job of “head principal” that no one notices when they have no idea what they’re doing? I mean, if you get hired as a programmer, or a construction worker, an accountant, or any other real job, people will know pretty quick if you’re grossly incompetent.
If you want to reduce education costs, a good way would probably be to just fire all these useless “administrators,” “diversity officers,” or “counselors” who don’t seem to be doing much of anything, and focus on actual teaching rather than doing progressive social experiments on children.
You don’t need expensive equipment to teach kids. Some of the smartest and wisest people in history were educated without even having access to paper and pens, which are relatively recent inventions.
These roman kids didn’t even have shirts! Only a slab of wax and a wooden stick.
And obviously, no amount of iPads is going to make Negroes learn algebra.
Books? They don’t realize how good they have it. That’s what I call privilege.
