Clark County School Board Cheats Nevada Parents and Students

Clark County School Board Cheats Nevada Parents and Students
ACLU Claims Appointment of Pat Skorkowsky is Illegal

As we know, on March 5th, 2013, Clark County Superintendent Dwight Jones announced that he was "stepping down (i.e., quitting) his position as Clark County Superintendent. Dwight Jones had reneged on his four-year contract to continue beyond April 2013 as the Clark County School District Superintendent. Instead, Dwight Jones quit his contract early. The departure would be effective in as little as two weeks.

On March 29th, 2013, another disturbing or routine (depending upon your perspective) announcement was being circulated just weeks after the abrupt departure of quitter Dwight Jones. This time the Nevada State Superintendent Jim Guthrie announced that he too was quitting his cereomonial, easy, and no-brains required job that did not even require an official job application or job interview.

Unanswered Questions by the Clark County School Board

In less than two weeks, two of Nevada's top educators decided to quit their prominent Nevada jobs. Both men declined to provide legitimate reasons why they would not fulfill the terms of their contractual obligations. Quitter Dwight Jones, for example, claimed that he was leaving his well paid job as the Clark County School District Superintendent to care for his ailing mother in Texas, but his exit flight from Nevada was bound for Colorado. Jim Guthrie had no problem telling the Governor of Nevada and all Nevada residents that "All I can say is I’m resigning, effective immediately.” Neither man offered to return any portion(s) of the extensive salary, perks, and supplemental income that was also provided to them by the state of Nevada and the Clark County School District. Meanwhile, Nevada students, Nevada moms, Nevada mothers, and Nevada working adults continue to ask questions. Why were two prominent quitters hired? Why was taxpayers' monies wasted on two greedy men? Why did these two lousy men quit so early, and at essentially the same time? Why were there no penalties levied against either Quitter Dwight Jones or Quitter Jim Guthrie for quitting their contract too early? Why does the Clark County School District impose stringent rules and requirements on students and parents, and even threaten arrest for the slightest perceived infraction, while at the same time the sleazy Clark County School Board tolerates the inexcusable conduct of high-paid "educators"? Was the abrupt departure of Quitter Dwight Jones and Quitter Jim Guthrie related to the cheating scandal involving overweight Beverly Hall of Atlanta, GA, who allegedly coerced Atlanta educators to cheat? Is Dwight Jones fearful that the graduation rates of Nevada students will be a major source of embarrassment?

None of these questions have been answered, and neither can we expect any local Nevada newspaper to conduct any sort of in-depth reporting to satisfy the concerns of Nevada residents or Nevada moms, Nevada mothers, and Nevada students.

This Scholarship Blog provides uncensored reporting on news, events, and education topics of interest to Nevada students, and Nevada parents because the local Nevada newspapers cannot be trusted to report the facts, or objectively ask controversial questions. For example, why were the salaries of two men who ultimately quit so high in the first place? What is the Clark County School District going to do to penalize people like Dwight Jones who renege on their contractual obligations?

The alleged illicit hiring of Pat Skorkowsky by the Sleazy Clark County School Board

In a closed-door meeting, in which the public was not invited, and without prior advance notice to the public, the Clark County School Board voted to hire Pat Skorkowsky as the next Clark County School District Superintendent. The same sleazy Clark County School Board that hired Dwight Jones, and numerous other failed educators, voted to hire Pat Skorkowsky on a hunch that he is the best suitable candidate. No back-ground check for Pat Skorkowsky. No tough questions for Pat Skorkowsky. No checking of the references for Pat Skorkowsky. No attempts to prevent the quitting of Pat Skorkowsky after he gets the first series of large paychecks. No attempts to verify if Pat Skorkowsky (a caucasion male) has any interest in young boys despite the fact that 67% of incarcerated sex offenders are white males.

To ensure the public was excluded from providing any input, the actual agenda item to hire interim superintendent Pat Skorkowsky as the new superintendent was never publicly posted and therefore Nevada residents and Nevada moms who may have wanted to provide their input on the decision couldn't.

According to the local media, a private citizen filed a complaint with the state attorney general's office accusing the school board of violating open meetings law. "This is going too fast for me," Clark County School Board president Carolyn Edwards said, the day after Skorkowsky was approved for the job.

General counsel for the ACLU says the vote by the Clark County School Board could have opened the board up to legal complications regarding the open meetings law, which requires agenda items to be clear and posted for the public before being discussed in a meeting.

Unlike Georgia, which has strong record of prosecuting educators who engage in fraud, corruption, and violate public meeting laws, no person should expect that either the Nevada attorney general or the local Clark County prosecutor will prosecute a single Clark County School Board employee. In Nevada, criminals and board members that are friends with judicial officials are never prosecuted. Given his suspect integrity, as evidenced by his acceptance of a $250,000 a year contract by a school board that met behind closed doors, it is a relatively safe bet that Pat Skorkowsky will be another failure and/or quitter.

McDonald's Corporation Takes an Average of 3 months to Hire a Manager

To give you an idea of what type of fraud and inferior service the Clark County School District is perpetuating on the public, McDonald's Corporation and the typical fast-food restaurant spends more time hiring a burger manager than the Clark County School District spends on hiring a Clark County School District Superintendent. In fact, many McDonald's franchises spend more time, effort, and energy interviewing and selecting suitable candidates as cooks, and managers, than the Clark County School District spent on recruiting and hiring and Pat Skorkowsky. The fact that Pat Skorkowsky was hired in such an easy way, does not mean that parents and students have to approve the primitive procedures used by the sleazy Clark County School Board. It is quite clear that the sleazy Clark County School Board does not and has never had the best interests of Nevada students in mind, and that a huge amount of money wasted on incompetent educators, and incompetent teachers that are barely interviewed. Consequently, the Clark County School District has a high-proportion of child-molestors and perverted teachers who either seek out other students, children, or who seek out the married partner of other teachers.

To safeguard the welfare of students, Nevada teachers should be required to undergo a detailed Perversity Test, and must substantiate being involved in a normal, healthy, and verified relationship over the past 10 years. Single persons and divorced persons should be disqualified immediately. If a single person or divorced is not qualified for the White House then they should not be qualified to be in the classroom around minors. Given the fact that the appointed superintendent, Pat Skorkowsky, has certain physical and/or genetic traits or DNA strands that appear to be similar to certain other male molestors, we need to increase our awareness level and stop ignoring well documented trends and historical data.
