Integrity: Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
In an interview with Rachel Barnhart on April 2, 2012, School Board President Malik Evans said, “The process isn’t rigged for any candidate. The process is open for anyone who’s interested to apply. Everyone who applies will have a fair shot.”
There was a time in our history when the truth was expected and respected. It seems, however, that those days are long gone. Where silence was once golden it has now become an omission of truth so one will not incriminate oneself. Honesty, in days gone by, was the best policy, whereas today the best policy is that which makes the most money for the fewest people.
Charles F. Aked is quoted as saying, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Good men have been doing nothing for too long, something must be done now.
Failure is an evil that has been running rampant in our system of education for decades. It has destroyed the hearts and minds of countless numbers of our children while we sit back passively and bemoan its consequences.
The statement made by President Evans is an outright lie. It is time the good people of this community come together and expose the rampant evil that pervades our system of education causing the failure of our children. Our educational leaders have shown, countless times, that their main concern is the business of education not the children education is supposed to serve.
The members of this community have a moral obligation to enter the temple and drive out the money changers who would sell the futures of our children for their political gain.
There was no integrity in the superintendent search process or in the selection process. There is no integrity in our process of education. Until members of this community come together and protest the lack of integrity that operates within our district we have no one to blame for the enslaved masses of the mis-educated but ourselves.
