Why isn't the PUSD School Board Investigating Ahmadi

Original post made by Horatio, Laguna Oaks, on Mar 2, 2014

With all the controversy and accusations being bandied about regarding Superintendent Ahmadi's handling of internal personnel issues, why hasn't the board opened up an investigation or even asked for information to be turned over to them? There is a board policy that states the board can ask for information from the superintendent with a majority vote and since all the board's actions are public information, they would have to do so in a public meeting. It does seem that Trustees Laursen, Bowser and Grant vote together as a block but it would seem that even they would want to know what is going on and investigate. Time for the board to step up as a team of five and work together to put the district on the right path.

What's this about the Board of Trustees needing a 3-2 vote to review or read any documents or information that Ahmadi possesses. Seems like their hands are tied to me Where is the transparency in that policy?

Which sneaky snake leaked an unredacted investigators report???
How can a principal be removed with no charges against him? What kind of info does the teachers' union have to leak to the press that made the District choose to go after one man (JV) instead of taking on a powerful union? What about the sad mess that still exists at WG? Why doesn't the school board use good conscience and call time out and make sure JV gets due process? Corruption , dishonesty and not doing right eventually catches up to any perpetrator. We elect a school board to represent us voters thoughtfully and honestly. Shame on you Grant, Bowser and Larson. You can put an end to these shenanigans immediately, yet you show us nothing but weakness!! You aren't even ashamed of yourselves. I am thoroughly disgusted with all of you.
