Dirty Tanikka Queen: Las Vegas Teacher Admits Perversity Against Student

Dirty Tanikka Queen: Las Vegas Teacher Admits Perversity Against Student

By Special Correspondent:Ron Thomas. Tanikka Queen: Las Vegas Teacher Admits Perversity. Another Clark County School District employee caught in a perverted act under the leadership of Pat Skorkowsky. Since Pat Skorkowsky has become Superintendent of the Clark County School District, many teachers and educators have used his hiring and lack of leadership as a badge to engage in perversity and attacks against students. The pattern is all too familiar: A desperate Clark County School District Employee is soliciting a student for cheap, dirty, and illicit sex because the teacher is too ugly, too dumb, or too immoral to find a suitable adult. UNLV graduate Tanikka Queen has disgraced UNLV, and added fuel to the claim that UNLV degrees dont' really mean too much.

Las Vegas High-School Teacher Tanikka Queen
Caught Acting Like A Four-Legged Animal

In May 2013, Amanda Brennan, a Las Vegas Foothill High School teacher was caught acting like an untrained animal. She was caught red-handed with a kid boy. Instead of distributing literature about Nevada Scholarships, and Grants to Nevada students, or directing students to download our Google play scholarships app, this sorry, pathetic, and no-good tramp was more interested in satisfying her bizarre attraction to kid boys. According to her arrest report, Tanikka Queen seems to have taken pages out of the

How-To-Molest-A-Boy book by infamous and stinking child molester Laura Whitehurst. Tannike Queen (a/k/a/ Jungle Queen Tannika) has never publicly apologized to every concerned parent in Nevada for her actions. Child Molester women appear to have turned the sting of adult male rejection into a weapon against little boys. A 15 year-old kid is a boy from any definition. Arab culture is an option that religious stalwarts in America may want to consider when dealing with adult women and adult male perverts. In Arab culture, stoning is an option for insubordinate perverts who cannot function in a civilized society of clean-minded, moral, correct-minded, and upright persons who have normal thinking processes, and who desire to promote the fantastic scholarships and grants sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.

Dirty Tanikka Queen Never Promoted Nevada Scholarships

Nevada Scholarships

Dirty Tanikka Queen Never Promoted our Nevada Scholarships. Dirty Tanikka Queen Never told Nevada students to download the best scholarship smart-phone application (Scholarship Keys) on Google Play, and most likely never Nevada students to register for our Nevada scholarships and grants. Despite this great smart-phonefact,what was Tannika Queen doing? Playing with a kid boy to fulfill her demented, and depraved desires. The desperate, homely, 22-year-old Tanikka Queen, a Clark County School District employee, was charged with multiple counts for allegedly having a perverted, dirty, and inappropriate sexual affair with a 15-year-old kid boy. All Nevada teachers have an option of promoting the Best Nevada Scholarships to Nevada students. Tannika Queen rejected the Best Nevada Scholarships that we sponsor but she accepted the sleazy time she spent with a kid boy. Apparently, it was more important for her to nourish her dirty mind than helping Nevada students go to college. This Clark County School District arrest is the latest in a long string of embarrassing cases for Pat Skorkowsky of the Nevada Clark County School District. As the Superintendent, he approves the policies in place to hire and fire employees. Even though it is simple to prevent perverts from being hired, Pat Skorkowsky is too busy posting fake youthful pictures on websites operated by the Clark County School District.

A license to Rape Students issued by Clark County School District
Nevada Tramp Amanda Brennan

Nevada Scholarships

In May 2013, Clark County School District employee and Foothill High-School teacher, Amanda Brennan, 24, was arrested on two counts of luring a child and a count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The Mickey Mouse charges by the sissy Nevada prosecutors don't really tell the whole story. An adult female molested and/or raped an under-age boy. Period. Not only are Nevada prosecutors afraid to charge licensed school-district female teachers with the actual crimes that are committed, the Nevada judicial system encourages child rape by sentencing such persons to probation. In fact, if a person wanted to legally (get away with it via probation) rape a Nevada student all it takes is a teaching license from the Clark County School District. Amanda Brennan was offered probation, and so was Tannika Queen. CCSD officials should know plenty about rape. They raped and misused the world-famous NAAS trademark for several years until their pimp accrediting association, Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, was legally forced to cease their illegal practices. UNLV officials knew that the NAAS trademark was registered and still some of their employees were in on the fake accreditation scheme.

Investigate Tanikka Queen for Not Promoting Nevada Scholarships

Did Tanikka Queen endanger the health amd safety of Nevada youth? Does Tanikka Queen have HIV? Does Tannika Queen have Herpes? Does Tannika Queen have open sores around her body? The general Nevada public needs to be safe against another potential sexually perverted attack by Tannika Queen. The local Nevada Disrict attorney charged her with 29 charges following her arrest in March. The suspected tramp was a Hyde Park Middle School substitute teacher accused of having a relationship with a teen. At no time did she discuss, or share Nevada scholarships, or grants sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.

Nevada Prosecutors Wimp Out: Jungle Fever Prevents Prosecution of Tannika Queen

Criminal Black women child molesters in Nevada should be happy. By recommending probation to Tannika Queen, and by dropping almost all of the original 29 felony charges, Nevada prosecutors are acknowledging that child rape in Nevada schools is condoned. The soft, Jungle Fever, local district attorney Steve Wolfson has reneged on his previous public claims that he wanted to send a message about the broken trust of Tannkia Queen with a Clark County School District student. It is a shame that the gender and race of Tannika Queen weakens Jungle Fever prosecutors. Previously, this wretched and filthy low-life molester was facing at least 29 state criminal charges. However, an April 2014 report from a local Nevada newspaper now claims that nearly all of her charges have been dismissed and that a plea bargain similar to Amanada Brennan is the more likely outcome. Instead of facing criminal charges that include multiple counts of kidnapping, statutory sexual conduct and luring a child with technology, along with one count of sexual conduct between an employee and a student, and more than 50 years behind bars, Tannika Queen is likely to simply go to Disneyland and ignore her crimes altogether. Probation is not a punishment. Probation encourages criminals to commit more crimes. Thank you Mr. Wolsfon for being a total failure and coward.

Nevada Students Deprived of Scholarships and Grants

Tannika Queen allegedly sent 2,400 text messages from her own cellphone and more than 100 dirty phone calls and tramp-like photos were allegedly exchanged to a kid boy. It is unfortunate that this 22-year old suspected female monster has potentially poisoned the mind of this kid boy and that she used her perverted, dirty, and disgusting thoughts to indulge in her own demented forms of self-pleasure. Instead of directing Nevada students to call our Education Advisor, she was playing Jungle Queen with a student. I am writing a letter today to the local State Bar and presiding Judge and encouraging federal officials to pursue federal charges, and demand that Tanikka Queen be tested for HIV. African-American women have the highest incidence of HIV and this suspect should be tested as well.

Prosecutors Throw Book at Teacher Tanikka Queen

Prosecutors Throw Book at Tanikka Queen
Suspected Female Pervert Worked at Clark County School District

Picture fraud by Pat Skorkowsky of the Nevada Clark County School District continues to motivate and encourage numerous teachers and Clark County School District personnel to pursue their own brand of perversity. Hardly a week goes by before another Nevada employee, Nevada volunteer, or Nevada substitute teacher employed by the Nevada Clark County School District is arrested or charged for a criminal act perpetrated on a Nevada student. Many of these Nevada students have not been told of the Nevada scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. Who is at fault? Leadership starts at the top, and not the bottom.

Blame Pat Skorkowsky for the Surge of Nevada Molester Teachers

Who is the leader of the Clark County School School District? Who is the single person responsible for NOT stopping this endless drum-roll of perversity that constantly eeks out of this perverted, nasty, dirty, and foul school district? A substantial reason for this uptick in perversity must be attributed to the leader, Pat Skorkowsky. Of course, he will deny responsibility because that is the type of man you get when you hire a person without leadership skills and who was given a job instead of earning it. Make no mistake about it, Pat Skorkowsky is responsible for this unending nightmare of Nevada teachers acting out their selfish feast of perversity. Who is Pat Skorkowsky? He is The most unqualified, and the most comedic of hired employees in the history of Nevada. Pat Skorkowsky is a walking arrangement of explicit incompetence and stupendous failure.. He lives and breathes an air of utter stupidity and arrogance. Appointed by reverse affirmative action, Pat Skorkowsky hasn't a clue how to improve the failure of the Clark County School District. Neither does he have a clue to protect Nevada students from the huge volume of perverts, teacher molesters, and predators that are hired by the Clark County School District.

Nevada Teachers Too Cowardly to Face Nightclub Scene

Even though the Las Vegas strip is less than 15 miles away from the typical Nevada high-school or middle-school, this short distance is apparently too long for cowardly, and pathetic, Nevada teachers to try their hand at a Nevada nightclub where most would face swift rejection. Perverts that are rejected by adults turn to children. Nevada teachers are either having affairs with other teachers or targeting naive students. Their socially dysfunctional personality is what prevents them from connecting with normal adults. When was the last time Tanikka Queen has been to a Nevada nightclub? Was she rejected by intelligent, educated, and normal adults? If the arresting police reports are true, apparently she can't attract a normal adult male, and therefore she has to induce a child or some goofy teenager.

Suspected Tramp Tanikka Queen.
Hired by Pat Skorkowsky

When the School Superintendent posts youthful pictures of himself on the website of the Clark County School District, as well as the Facebook page, then what more motivation does a pervert really need? The posting of outdated pictures on a website or social media channel is a common tactic used by child molesters, and deperate men and women to attract the opposite gender. With the constant high fees charged to Nevada students, inferior school supplies provided to Nevada students, yearbook fees in excess of $100, incompetent Nevada teachers at all grade levels, it is outrageous that Pat Skorkowsky seems more concerned with his past youth than tackling important issues.

It is little wonder that 22-year-old Tanikka Queen, a Clark County School District employee, has been recently charged with multiple counts for allegedly having a perverted, dirty, and inappropriate sexual affair with a 15-year-old student. When approached to promote Nevada Scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars, she rebuffed the Scholarship Committee. Apparently, it was more important for her to entertain a 15 year-old minor. This Clark Couny School District arrest is the latest in a long string of embarrassing cases for Pat Skorkowsky of the Nevada Clark County School District. As the Superintendent, he approves the policies in place to hire and fire employees. Even though it is simple to prevent perverts from being hired, Pat Skorkowsky is too busy posting youthful pictures on websites operated by the Clark County School District.

Suspected Pervert Tanikka Queen Never Promoted Nevada Scholarships or Grants

Tanikka Queen, an African-American female, faces a few charges. The local Nevada District attorney charged her with 29 charges following her arrest in March. The suspected tramp was a Hyde Park Middle School substitute teacher accused of having a relationship with a teen. At no time did she discuss, or share Nevada scholarships, or grants sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. Neither did Tanikka Queen recruit Nevada students to call our Education Hotline number at 1-888-504-2922, Monday-Friday, 7:00AM - 4:00PM. Every high-school student should call this phone number to verify their college intent and educational goals.

The local district attorney claims he is sending a message. However, she is only facing 29 charges. The criminal charges include multiple counts of kidnapping, statutory sexual conduct and luring a child with technology, along with one count of sexual conduct between an employee and a student. What is disturbing is that the suspect is not also facing federal charges since she allegedly sent 2,400 text messages from her own cellphone and more than 100 dirty phone calls and tramp-like photos were allegedly exchanged. It is unfortunate that this 22-year old suspected female monster has potentially poisoned the mind of this teen boy and used her perverted, dirty, and disgusting thoughts to indulge in her own demented forms of self-pleasure. I am writing a letter today to the local district attorney and encouraging him to pursue federal charges, and demand that Tanikka Queen be tested for HIV. African-American women have the highest incidence of HIV and this suspect should be tested as well.

Additional charges could be federal. Also, what about contributing to the delinquency of a minor? What about sexual disease transmission? Tanikka Queen should be tested for all forms of sexual diseases, and the results made public), a public nuisance, and criminal conspiracy. Every possibile charge should be leveled at her. Even her U.S. citizenship should be debated. There is no excuse for any U.S. teacher NOT to be promoting scholarships, or grants, sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.

Failure of Pat Skorkowsky to Prevent Nevada Teacher Molestations

Financial Rape of Nevada Students, and the Failure of Pat Skorkowsky to Prevent Nevada Teacher Molestations

Nevada teachers need to do a better job of promoting and distributing information about the numerous scholarships, grants, and financial-aid that are available to Nevada students, Nevada moms, and Nevada adults. Nevada teachers, and Nevada educators must do a better job of assisting Nevada students to secure valuable scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. One suggestion is providing hyperlinks to important organizations that sponsor FREE scholarships, grants, and financial-aid.

The #1 task that Nevada teachers MUST, however, improve upon, is keeping their hands, bodies, and physical selves off of Nevada youth. Nevada teacher molestations lead the U.S.A. Secondly, Nevada teachers MUST ALWAYS focus on matters important to Nevada students, instead of looking for ways to prostitute the system for their own personal gain or self-indulgence.

For example, on March 5th, 2013, Clark County Superintendent Dwight Jones announced that he was "stepping down" (i.e., quitting) his position as Clark County Superintendent due to his self-claimed personal reasons. Clark County School District employee Dwight Jones reneged on his four-year contract to continue beyond April 2013 as the Clark County School District Superintendent. On January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed as the chancellor of Germany by President Paul Von Hindenburg. This appointment was made in an effort to keep Hitler and the Nazi Party at ease. Pat Skorkowsky successfully urged and fought for his own appointment to become the undisputed leader of the 5th largest school district in America without even an interview! OMG! Without full public participation, and despite a legal requirement that the public be allowed to weigh in on such important matters such as selecting a new Superintendent, the seven-member Clark County School Board appeased the wishes of Pat Skorkowsky just as Paul Von Hindenburg appeased the wishes of the Adolf Hitler camp. The seven-member Clark County School Board voted unanimously to appoint a suspicious Pat Skorkowsky as the successor to Dwight Jones and pay him the same high-rate as Dwight Jones had been paid.

According to the website of transparentnevada.com, Dwight Jones was paid a staggering annual salary of $386,787.00 per year, and this figure does not even include thousands of additional dollars in special perks such as free gasoline, housing, travel allowances, and much more. His successor, Pat Skorkowsky will receive the same outrageous salary for a school district that ranks last in the entire United States of America in virtually every quantifiable category. What have these two men accomplished for the betterment of Nevada youth, either jointly or severally, that qualifies either of them to paid such outrageous sums? I know of no accomplishment(s).

International pundits from abroad have labeled the state of Nevada a laughing stock in terms of education and have belittled Nevada education leaders as simple-minded American buffoons who can't even grasp the importance of instructing Nevada students to consider the numerous free scholarships, grants, and financial-aid sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars.

All the while, students in Clark County Nevada classrooms were and continue to be financially-raped for miscellaneous expenses such as dance outfits for young girls, jerseys for football players, having to do without personal text books, fees for outfits for Physical Education, fees for Agenda calendars, payment for their own Art supplies, fees for basic computer classes, fees for class electives, and numerous other fees that are traditionally the province of for-profit institutions. In virtually every way possible, the Clark County School District and its superintendents are forcing Nevada youth to strip their wallets and purses;in some cases, as noted below, the clothes soon follow.

Under the threat of expulsion, cash-strapped students reluctantly pay these enormous fees while top education officials in Nevada sit around practically all day and collect massive salaries, serve Krispy Kreme donuts in the back office, joke about UNLV sports and entertainment news, and attend meaningless public events.

Salary History of Pat Skorkowsky and his role Against Nevada Students

As the table below indicates, Pat Skorkowsky has been riding the Nevada Department of Education welfare roll of excessive salaries for several years. Despite Nevada's failing grades under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, the salary of Pat Skorkowsky increased 23.5% from 2009 to 2011. From 2009 until 2011, his salary increased roughly 30%, while Nevada continued to receive failing grades under federal guidelines.

While the salary of Pat Skorkowsky, and teachers employed by the Clark County School District, were continually increasing each and every year, Nevada students have noticed that items that traditionally and historically were free were all of a sudden costing the students and their parents. For example, although the state of Nevada is required per the Constitution of Nevada to provide public education to each and every resident in the State of Nevada, the Clark County School District, and its superintendents have instead reversed that principle and began charging students fees for material and instructional guides that are supposed to be provided per the state education budget.

From 2009 and ongoing, students attending Nevada public schools have seen their fees increase, services decrease, teacher molestations increase, and the number of elective classes dwindle. Despite this ongoing algorithm of perversity, Pat Skorkowsky can lay claim to being one of the highest paid state superintendents in America.

The Nevada Department of Education and the Clark County School District, and Pat Skorkowsky, are subjecting cash-strapped Nevada students, and their parents to excessive fees,high taxes, and mandatory expenses under the threat of expulsion while he was hand-delivered a $400,000 per year job without even being subjected to interviews from city leaders or the formailty of semi-finalist candidates.

Case of Clark County School District Teacher John Mannion and Pat Skorkowsky

In March of 2009, Clark County School District, Coronado's head varsity football coach, John Mannion, was investigated for theft of school funds. More than $20,000 generated by hard-working, and honest, Nevada student athletes via at the Henderson school was unaccounted for, sources within the Clark County School District admitted publicly.

Coronado's freshmen football coach said he gave Mannion about $11,000 raised by his football players that same month the larger amount went missing. Although John Mannion claimed a lesser amount, the freshman football coach said he doubted Mannion's account of what took place and contended that Mannion failed to turn in a large amount of student-generated money as early as January of that year to the school banker.

The Las Vegas Review Journal went on to report, "If the money was stolen, why didn't he (John Mannion) report it right away?" the freshmen coach asked. "This wasn't the school's money, it was the kids' money. It makes me sick."

What was even sicker was the response and the inaction taken by Pat Skorkowsky, the Clark County School District, and the failure of Nevada law enforcement to take any serious action against the blonde-haired, tanned, John Mannion. At that time, Pat Skorkowsky was the Southeast Region Assistant Superintendent. A local newspaper requested preliminary audit results, but the paper was denied.

When Clark County School District officials confirmed the funds were missing, the Coronado school sent a letter to the parents of varsity football players asking these ill-informed Nevada parents to pay $77 each for homecoming jerseys! Instead of informing the parents about the honest truth that a Clark County School District employee embezzled funds, stole funds, or commingled funds, or converted funds for his/her private gain, the Clark County School District, and Pat Skorkowsky jointly agreed that the parents should foot the bill and be kept in the dark. Either Pat Skorkowsky approved this letter, or he should have demonstrated the leadership to refuse it.

invisibleSHIELD

John Mannion was never fired from his job, and was never prosecuted of course. Instead, he became involved in more serious lapses of judgement later on. In or about July of 2012, John Mannion was arrested after he allegedly sold Oxycontin to an undercover detective on three separate occasions. He was back teaching at Bonanza High School as if nothing had happened. No big deal. Crime by privileged teachers is never taken seriously by the Clark County School District or the Nevada police department. Judging by the lack of outspokeness, and the lack of public outrage, parents of Nevada students appear to enjoy that their children are victims of 'privileged' crime or crime by privileged persons compared to crimes by persons like Arial Castro, Willie Horton, Sammy Lee Brown, or Albert Hernandez, Jr.

The Clark County School District is full of privileged teachers like John Mannion who can commit virtually any offense short of murder or a mass bombimg, or mass shooting, and still retain his job at the Clark County School District. Only the most sensational of crimes that are well publicized on national TV can result in a Clark County School District employee being terminiated from his/her job. Committing a crime against a child enrolled in the Clark County School District is treated like an inmate crime (Nevada kids are the inmates, and the teacher predators are the protected criminals).

New Molestation Case of Clark County School District Employee. Alfphonso Washington Accused of open and gross lewdness

In Augustof 2013, a new case of teacher perversity was filed against a Clark County School District employeee. This should not be a suprise because virtually no teacher or employee of the Clark County School District that has been arrested, and charged with such crimes has been aggressively prosecuted at the state level.

Las Vegas Metro police announced the arrest of Alfphonso Washington, 47, in connection to allegations of a Lied Middle School teacher committing the acts at the campus.

The fact that these incidents of Clark County School District teachers acting out their barbaric perversity continue to occur on a near monthly basis indicates that Pat Skorkowsky is not doing enough to protect Nevada students.

Since his appointment, Pat Skorkowsky has not developed a comprehensive policy to combat sexual assault crimes by perverted employees of the Clark County School District. Even the facebook page of the Clark County School District fails to even mention the arrest Alfphonso Washington at the time it occured.

Nevada business leaders have not put any pressure on the Mayor or the Clark County School Board to prosecute teacher perversity cases and to develop a formidable policy that will deter these despicable teachers.

When asked about his selection as the new Clark County School Superintendent, and how he would combat these ongoing problems, the scheming Clark County School District offered the local Las Vegas Sun newspaper a mere 10-minute interview. It should be no surprise that rapes are occuring in the Clark County School District. What is shocking is that Nevada parents have a lethargic attitude about the matter, and only respond when their own son or daughter is personally affected.

Perhaps we should either laugh or praise these crimes and then maybe that would spur the Nevada parents to take the safety and security of their children more seriously. Despite this financial-rape, the attitude of many Nevada parents is to do anything to support the teachers even if it leads to cases like John Mannion and other Nevada teacher molestation cases.

Many of the unsophisticated blue-collar parents do not understand that many of the fees being assessed by the Clark County School District are supposed to be accounted for by the state education budget, and not by cash-strapped students.

In a nutshell, not enough is being done to protect the interests of Nevada students, Nevada moms, and to stop the Financial and physical Rape of Nevada Students, and demand that Pat Skorkowsky prevent future Nevada teacher molestations.

Tony Bennett: Scandal, Resignation, and Cheating

Cheater or Reformer Tony Bennett?: Tony Bennett's resignation as Florida's commissioner of schools confirms disarray in Education Reform

If only Tony Bennett had stuck to the script of promoting Florida Scholarships sponsored by National Academy of American Scholars. Instead of staying focused, Tony Bennett veered off course. It didn't take long for Tony Bennet's alleged corrupt practices, and his refusal to promote important scholarship programs, to reach his new employer in Florida. On August 1st, 2013, after media scrutiny of his fancy grading system that benefitted a wealthy political donor, Tony Bennett resigned as Florida's commissioner of schools. Until recently, Tony Bennett had achieved a reputation as a national school reform leader. In fact, educational pundits even touted him as a rising rock star in the educational reform movement.

Although the voters of Indiana refused to renew his term in his re-election bid as school superintendent (Tony Bennett lost to challenger Glenda Ritz in the 2012 election), the same defeated Tony Bennett was hand-picked by Jeb Bush to become the Florida Education Commissioner. Brian Sandoval, the Governor of Nevada, hand-picked another failed member of the Bush entourage when he selected Jim Guthrie to become the Nevada Superintendent of Public Instruction. After less than 12 months, or thereabouts, Jim Guthrie resigned his top Nevada education job without explanation; and, he later expressed his opinion about the value of Nevada residents when he told the local Nevada media that the voters of Nevada didn't deserve to know why he resigned so early.

Tony Bennett loses election to Camilla-Parker-Bowles look-a-like

In this latest fiasco, the voters of Indiana favored a simple librarian in Marion County's Washington Township school district, Democratic challenger Glenda Ritz (a Camilla-Parker-Bowles look-a-like), over Republican incumbent Tony Bennett in the race for the Indiana state superintendent of public instruction on Nov. 6, 2012.

The privileged Jeb Bush, never known for his intellectual ability, has fashioned himself as an education reform leader. Bush was instrumental in the appointment of Tony Bennett as Florida's next education leader. Despite the mountain of complaints from residents in Indiana, and his failed effort to win re-election in that state, Tony Bennett was selected to become the next Florida Education Commissioner.

If the current allegations are true, and if we assume that his resignation is an admission of wrong-doing, then Tony Bennett has disgraced himself and many Indiana residents feel that he has cheated Indiana students. His actions deserve the same treatement as the March 2013 criminal indictment of Beverly Hall, another media-labeled rising star in education reform.

Tony Bennett Cheating Scandal Compared to Criminal Indictment of Big Beverly Hall of Atlanta

Although Beverly Hall and many of her African-American educator lieutenants were paraded before a national T.V., handcuffed, embarrassed, and indicted with numerous criminal charges for allegedly inflating grades, and altering standardized test scores, it is unlikely that the state of Indiana will be so tough on the fair-haired, tan, privileged, and socially-connected Tony Bennett. Not too many people can get fired in one state, and be promoted to a higher occupation in a different state.

Facebook commentators hailing from the Hoosier state have called the State of Indiana as corrupt, called the state of Florida corrupt, and referred to Tony Bennett as an embarassment to Indiana. In delivering the George Zimmerman verdict, Florida media pundits noted that Florida jurors applied a strict interpretation of Florida law in finding George Zimmerman innocent. Apparently, the law in Florida can be bent, twisted, and revised depending upon the identity and characteristics of the perpetrator. Not only does Florida now have the innocent verdict of George Zimmerman on its hands, Florida needs to address why Tony Bennett and his education lieutenants have not faced the same criminal charges, or similar ones, that have been levied against Beverly Hall of Atlanta. If electronic email indicate grade-tampering by Tony Bennett and his staff then why have the interests of Florida moms, mothers, women, and Florida students been taken into account?

Florida Education Association President Andy Ford
Responds to Selection of New Commissioner Tony Bennett

The Florida Education Association is disappointed and disheartened at the selection of Tony Bennett to be Florida's education commissioner. Bennett proved to be divisive in his tenure in the same position in Indiana and was voted out of office last month in the conservative state. He is a champion of the testing mania, unchecked expansion of charter schools and voucher programs and has proven to advance the Jeb Bush education agenda that has drawn fire from teachers, parents and experts in the field. That is the same approach that has led to a flawed and chaotic system in Florida that has frustrated parents and teachers alike. In Indiana, teachers and education professionals felt he was blaming them for all of the state's education woes.

We certainly hope he has learned his lessons by being rejected in Indiana. But we're skeptical. This decision does not indicate that the State Board of Education and Gov. Rick Scott understand that parents, teachers and those who question a flawed reform agenda deserve their voices heard and their insights and expertise incorporated into Florida's strategy for public education. The Board and the governor once again have ignored the parents and teachers of our state.

Cheating Allegations Against Tony Bennett

In a nutshell, Tony Bennett, the former head of Indiana's public schools, faces allegations of favoring a charter school backed by a major donor.

During his tenure as Indiana Superintendent for Public Instruction, media pundits report that suspicious emails associated with Tony Bennett create the apparent illusion that he publicly favored education reform for Indiana students and parents, when in fact he was secretly pushing to fatten the purses of major Republican donors. Critics argue that his tenure was even marked with racial disparity. For examle, when his reform theories were trained on minority schools, African-American critics allege that Tony Bennett was quick to level his axe; e.g., refer to the Indiana state takeover of Roosevelt High School in Gary, Indiana.

When it came to rich donors failing to make grade, suspicious email traced to Tony Bennett indicate he would take an entirely different approach. For example, emails published by the Associated Press indicate that Tony Bennett and his apparently corrupt Indiana staff scrambled last fall to ensure Christel DeHaan's school received an "A" despite poor 10th-grade algebra scores that initially earned it a "C."

After Bennett learned about a likely low grade for charter school Christel House, Tony Bennet sprang into action and fired off a Sept. 12 email to his chief of staff. In the email, the contents stated: "This will be a HUGE problem for us," Bennett wrote. "They need to understand that anything less than an A for Christel House compromises all of our accountability work."

Tony Bennett cut corners as Beverly Hall cut pies and chomped burgers

E-mails from the Associated Press indicate that Tony Bennett was willing to cut corners to create the illusion of excellent performance by entities and persons who were also recognized as large donors or operators of charter schools.

Whereas Beverly Hall may have been willing to cut pies, and chomp burgers, both Tony Bennett and Beverly Hall appear to share a common denominator: Inflate the performance of low-performing schools and/or mask the underperformance of schools. According to a criminal indicted released in March 2013. Big Bev (Beverly Hall), and many in her administration, were indicted in the spring on charges of racketeering and corruption. At least 35 Atlanta Public Schools educators and administrators were indicted.

By the time the indictment reached her, Beverly Hall had already "retired" because she most likely knew that her recipe for success was instead a phony diet with a 1000 calories, 0 proteins, 1 pound of sugar, and 1200 mg of sodium, and more hundreds of inflated low performing schools on steriods of deceit.

*Tony Bennett Hiring Compared to Pat Skorkowsky of the Clark County School District

When Pat Skorkowsky of the Clark County School District was hired as the Clark County School District on May 22, 2013, without full public participation, and despite a legal requirement that the public be allowed to weigh in on such important matters such as selecting a new Superintendent, a legal 21-page complaint was filed by parent Kevinn Donovan, of Henderson, NV. Like many us, Kevinn Donovan felt that when the seven-member Clark County School Board voted unanimously to appoint Pat Skorkowsky as the leader of the fifth-largest school system in America, the Open Meeting Laws of Nevada strictly applied. Such laws require public input on important matters of concern to Nevada residents, Nevada moms, Nevada women, and local residents, but were skirted by the Clark County School Board in its ambitious efforts to plant Pat Skorkowsky as a Superintendent of the Clark County School District.

In the case of selecting Tony Bennet, at least Tony Bennet can claim that his selection for the top Florida education post was valid and legitimate. Tony Bennet was selected among a pool of over 60 applicants to become the next Florida Education Commissioner while the suspicious Clark County Board of Education used a zero (0) pool of competing candidates when Board members made the choice of selecting Pat Skorkowsky. Time will tell if the Clark County Board of Education made the right choice or a corrupt choice.

Summary of Tony Bennett Cheating Scandal

The investigation of the Tony Bennett cheating scandal is ongoing, and new details are being developed daily. Florida Education Association President Andy Ford immediately denounced the selection of Tony Bennet as the new top chief of Florida education. In the state of Nevada, not a single top educator has denounced the selection of privileged Pat Skorkowsky, who apparently must be handed the position because he lacks the credentials to compete for the job. When the state of Nevada originally selected Dwight Jones as the next Clark County School District Superintendent, Dwight Jones was subjected to numerous interviews, numerous background checks, drug tests, and official interviews with no fixed agenda of a foregone conclusion. Dwight Jones was forced to compete against qualified candidates of his peers. Eventally, however, Dwight Jones still quit midway in his term, and was subsequently labeled as a Nevada Quitter.

On the other extreme hand, Pat Skorkowsky did not have to go through even 10% of what Dwight Jones faced, faced no competition, and he was still hired by the same dimwits that appointed Dwight Jones! By comparison, the selection of Tony Bennett more closely followed the hiring process of Dwight Jones. Eventually, Tony Bennett was appointed Rick Scott, the Governor of Florida.

The purpose of these comparisons is to illustrate how diverse states, whether Florida, Indiana, or Nevada, etc., can have widely different standards on appointing, nominating, or choosing top educators, and in implementing grades. This lack of a uniform process creates a gap for corruption to flourish. and how the choice will affect parents, and students.

Florida has been among the fastest states to adopt changes favored by education reformers, from school report cards to radical changes to teacher evaluations and tenure. Although Jeb Bush, an apparent groupie of Tony Bennett, expressed his approval of Bennett in the wake of the scandal, the resignation of Bennett will no not slow down the education reform effort in Florida. Florida Moms, women, and educators wiil devise ways for Florida to best implement Common Core State Standards, improve standardized testing tied to the core standards, and improve it's charter school voucher programs.
