Showdown at the FWISD grievance hearing

by Ann Sutherland on 04/12/19

There's been a lot of angst about an unusual complaint against a former AP at Daggett Montessori School by a parent who is also a teacher in the district.  The issue appeared to be whether the AP threatened to harm the career of the parent/teacher.  Unfortunately, when one of the board members (me) asked staff whether they agreed this was the issue, Mary Ellen Hicks, the grievant's representative, lashed into an egregiously abusive take-down over the silliness of the question, amplified by Cinto Ramos' helpful assertion that the question was improper.  

Ahh.  The truth comes out.  The reason for the grievance wasn't to get justice for grievant Brandy Pace.  Rather, it was an excuse for Paz/Ramos to push through a resolution stating that the district acknowledges that it, like other urban districts, has a lot to do to provide justice for minority populations, whether racial or cultural.
