With the brouhaha over improper testing activities at Louisville’s Male High School now headed to the Kentucky Educational Professional Standards Board (EPSB), I wondered if any initial action by that board might be planned for its next meeting on July 20-21, 2014. So, I checked out the agenda book for the meeting, which recently showed up in the EPSB’s web site.
I didn’t find any mentions of Male High or the three individuals who are currently implicated for problems at the school, but I did stumble across something else that may be equally, if not more, serious.
A “Retreat Guidesheet” regarding “Disciplinary Review” starting on Page 82 (use Adobe Acrobat’s page number feature, there are no printed page numbers in the agenda book) provides cause for concern.
It seems like the teachers’ union is trying to further control and dilute the school staff discipline process.
