Is The Teacher In The Classroom With Your Child Qualified?

Demonstrating nepotism when awarding teaching jobs is particularly dangerous because of the product that the employee is working with. The struggles associated with a number of personal agendas taking priority over the education of children; the continued assault of Dr. Collins by a small faction of the community as well as two members of the Baord of Education; the irrational and unwarranted re-call effort launched against Mr. Patapow; and the lack of professionalism and integrity of two board members, have all taken their toll.
