Letter: Unfair criticism of Dan


Are any of the charges in recent letters to the editor critical of Jeffco's ex-Superintendent Dan McMinimee true?

Do these letter writers not know that every chief executive serving under a Board of Directors, public or corporate, is obligated to follow its directions?

Was Dan ever charged by the present Teachers'-Union-installed School Board with any deficiency, much less insubordination? 

Is not the interim-Superintendent silently following exactly those same orders from the present Board, with respect to school closures, financial shuffling, mass sixth grade forced-migrations, plus program cuts and their subsequent restorations?

So how can they then be McMinimees' faults? 

Do not these letter writers owe Dan McMinimee an apology?

Until the School Board improves its horrible reputation; a reputation that puts pay raises ahead of the kids, there will never be another successful bond issue in Jefferson county. The PRO UNION SCHOOL BOARD wrote a check when they promised raises without the means to fund the raises. The bond issue failed but the raises are still on?

Its for the kids?!?!?!? yea right.
