Kirsten Westcott did a followup appearance before the school board, and it was an education in how school bureaucrats operate.
Starting at 8:30, we hear the district Executive Director for Secondary Schools and the school Principal explain in the best educationese all the wonderful things they had been doing. We heard such words as 'success plan,' 'structure plan,' 'communication to parents,' 'meeting expectations,' 'community partnership,' 'targeting professional learning,' 'restorative practices,' 'accountability measures,' 'student engagement,' 'staff passion,' 'relationship building,' 'ongoing interventions,' 'perception surveys,' 'all-staff engagement,' 'evaluation model,' and 'systemic fashion.' Nothing but bureaucratic BS which hadn't accomplished ANYTHING, as Kirsten pointed out in her remarks, which start at 35:00.
And then we hear a smarmy apology from Superintendent Langenfeld, who I doubt would have apologized if the previous Kirsten clip hadn't gone viral.
What we see here is an excellent example of privileged bureaucrats (I wonder where they send THEIR kids to school?) in an inefficient socialized system where their primary concern is their high pay, covering their posteriors and keeping scandals as quiet as possible. We saw a similar reaction from school officials in the Maryland case where a 14-year-old girl was raped by illegal immigrants.
Political correctness to the max and beneath contempt. Except for Kirsten, NOT ONE WORD about expelling habitual troublemakers, or indeed criminals.
