DE Sec of Ed Mark Murphy needs to engage in these kind of scandals

Lord Baltimore Elementary Principal & Asst. Principal On Admin. Leave  By Jarred Hill  Posted: Jan 16, 2014 11:44 PM ESTUpdated: Jan 17, 2014 1:11 AM EST

OCEAN VIEW, Del. – A shock for parents and students at Lord Baltimore Elementary School in Sussex County, when it was announced that both the principal and assistant principal are now on administrative leave.

The school district won’t comment on why John Turssline and Melissa Oates were placed on leave yesterday.  All they would say the decision was made, pending further action by the Board of Education, calling it a personnel matter.

Don’t you just love it when shit like this goes on! Whatever it is, it’s serious enough for these individuals to bee put on administrative leave and probably with pay.

Susan Bunting, the superintendent for the Indian River School District said in a statement:

Bunting ??? That’s not the same person slated to replace Mark Murphy is he decides to leave or get’s terminated?

“Beginning on Tuesday, January 21, Gary Brittingham will serve as Lord Baltimore Elementary School’s acting principal and Ann Marie Logullo will serve as acting assistant principal. Both will hold these positions until permanent replacements can be hired by the Board of Education. Mr. Brittingham is a former principal, assistant principal and assistant superintendent in the Indian River School District and has 32 years of school administrative experience. He is well-qualified to lead the school through this transition. Mrs. Logullo is currently an assistant principal at Southern Delaware School of the Arts and has held a variety of administrative positions in our district. She also possesses strong leadership skills and will be an asset to the school staff. The job of Lord Baltimore principal has been posted by the district and we plan to hire a permanent replacement soon. I would like to reassure parents that the recent changes in the school’s administrative staff are not the result of any criminal activity or issues involving the safety and welfare of children. I again wish to thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time of transition.”

“until permanent replacements can be hired by the Board of Education” So which is ? Administrative leave or termination?

OK folks, I don’t want to hear about anything sexual! Folks please don’t go there with it. I will delete and put your I.D. on moderation! 

I know it’s a local issues but with the war on education and radical reforms one would think the Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy would up the stakes on personal conduct. Nothing to do with criminal activities or in putting students in danger. So what’s left ? Morals? Maybe they had an unpleasant argument in front of other staff? So, I guess they’ll be ask to leave for health reason or something and just pop-up at another school? I doubt Delaware for awhile! Whatever it is! Bud again we can no longer just sweep things under the rug.

A new advocacy group, Integrity in Education, has filed Freedom of Information Act requests to expose connections between the U.S. Department of Education officials and for-profit education companies.

The group, headed by Sabrina Stevens, a former teacher and American Federation of Teachers staffer, launched today during a conference call with reporters. It will focus on exposing connections between K-12 public education and for-profit education companies and countering arguments laid out by groups promoting free-market reforms for education such as StudentsFirst and Chiefs for Change.
