I asked you what do you know precisely because I know the opposite. From what I know, RBS, as an institution, is going through a results slump. And this slump, many parents fear, is due to several years of unqualified people being hired for positions that are beyond their capabilities.

Like I said, one of the reasons why we asked for the résumés is because we KNEW that some of the folks that were rejected had A LOT more experience, hence would've been a lot more beneficial for the school, than someone (Fishkin) who doesn't have much experience in running a school (but is easily coerced and would do her utmost to preserve the culture of finger-appointing unqualified individuals that has invaded RBS).

Like I said, it's a cancer. And many parents are getting fed up.

Does this results slump show Ossining exceeding RB in academic performance or cost of a household to send each child becoming more expensive than Hackley? Perhaps.

At least not AS qualified as some of the applicants that were deemed "not apt" by the "neutral" board.

This person was finger-appointed by Generalissima McKay, and I, for one, find that appalling. I find it appalling that tenures, positions and anything that smells like a good pay/pension are decided upon by members of boards that vote each other up the rank of command. Lyn McKay is a good example of it: She's getting 240k annually + car + all the perks that come with "The Gift". She was finger appointed by someone else in another abhorrent exercise of apparently "transparent" intent to hire the most brilliant educators, while the principal's office at RBS was getting inundated with résumés from EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED folks from the 50 states of this Great Nation... and they always seem to end up hiring internally. Huh?!

Lyn McKay recommended a "tool" for the principal spot. Not someone that is going to rattle the cage in the interest of the academic future of the school, she hired someone that isn't going to answer back. That's what McKay means when she says that Amy "is a good communicator," she says the things Lyn wants to hear. This is corruption at its best.

People like McKay are a cancer for ANY school system. And cancers spread.

You've been warned.
Thanks for the info, Mr. Slander.

Ah! I see what you're saying. It's my fault because I misinterpreted the "from what I know" for you actually having RBS-specific information. You're talking comparatively with the surrounding school systems.

Got it.

You do know the whole McKay crime family is being investigated for the Schraufnagel scandal right? Anyone "made" by Da Boss McKay (that includes recommendations and finger-appointments) is going to get grilled.
