SMSD Board of Education - Teacher Resigns in Front of Board Meeting
Lots of schools are dysfunctional and bad leadership is usually the issue. When idiots are in charge, bad things happen.

I posted this to the "Trona Football (The Pit)" thread awhile back:

Sadly, the answer is way too often! For that matter a few of our coaches have managed to behave rather badly. I could list a few examples if anyone is interested!

There are a few stories about coaches who have made Trona look bad as the result of a little temper tantrum of one kind or another during or immediately following a sports event. One story I heard involves a current board member. I'll refrain from adding any details, but if anyone is so inclined....
:poop:

A friend told me the details of that story a few years ago. It wasn't just embarrassing. It involved an official CIF sanction! Talk about the last person on the planet that should be on a school board!
:smack:

Well.... maybe not the last person who should be on the school board. Perhaps she's not exactly someone who has the temperament to be a good school board member. Perhaps she has done things in the past which should cause people to question her qualifications. Perhaps she has made bad decisions in her life and perhaps she is too quick to see the flaws in others without doing anything about her own more serious flaws. But -- and I know I'm going out on a limb here -- a CIF sanction isn't exactly a felony.

ergot: What you say may well be true, but it just goes to show that Trona scrapes the scum off the dirty gas station restroom wall when it comes to appointing board members!

Seems like every school has a crazy bus driver. I've encountered a few. It was probably worse "back in the day," but driving a bus full of kids is enough to drive just about anyone crazy!

The Man Who Trolled a School Board
Trona needs a Steve Rocco. He'd be an improvement over any of the current member, some more so that others!
