We may have achieved a new high in the headlong march towards no accountability in the public education system. We read with disdain the stories of NYC teachers accused of malfeasance kept on the payroll for years reporting to work not in a classroom but in a separate facility.....all because they can't be fired...
Now in the General Brown school district, the WDT reports those disatisfied with the superintendent cannot identify him by name and must be civil when voicing concern at a Board of Education meeting.
Can't mention his name ? It's Stephan Vigliotti, Sr. and for him to expect...and this policy suggests he does...well, for him to expect public discourse over him and his performance will be tamped down or sanitized...well that's just silly.
District residents and parents need to know why there is the apparent level of unease with Mr. Vigliotti that would lead to such a policy declaration by the district's lawyer.
What's next, a ban on public gatherings of more than three people in Brownville and Dexter....Move along folks.
