Parents- Be Outraged, Demand Answers and Accountability - but not from FOX or the teacher~ from MVRCS regarding their hiring practices!
People on both sides are outraged regarding the recent firing (or administrative leave) of the HS teacher at MVRCS. Some think it was wrong for Fox to dig into the poor guys past, others are outraged that the guy who was teaching their children was either a gay or porn star (or both), and others are furious that he was hired in the first place. The real issue isn't truly any of these, the real issue is much more concerning and complicated than any of these. The real issue is the hiring practices that have been going on over at MVRCS - both the double standards and poor hiring practices and decisions that they are forced to make due to the ever-constant revolving door they have. The word is on the street here in Massachusetts, many teachers want nothing to do with the BS, poor working conditions, and corruption that MVRCS has become known for. This is why the school must constantly spend so much money each year (or claim to anyways) recruiting new, green teachers from out of state. Then, we would suggest you speak to any of the current teachers there, either they were hired as a result of who they knew OR they were interviewed and offered the position within a day or two of each other. Ask any of them if ANY of their references were ever contacted by anyone from the school? Yes, it may be a formality but its still worth at least ensuring that someone, somewhere is willing to vouch for someone who will be educating children.
We also find it interesting that the school takes issue with this fella's past yet is willing to have a disbarred attorney as their PR person (making more than most teachers make) who STOLE MONEY FROM AN ELDERLY COUPLE AND THEN ATTEMPTED TO BULLY THEM INTO NOT FILING CHARGES, and who, NEVER SERVED A DAY OF JAIL TIME FOR HIS CRIME. Hmmm, that double standard thing starts rearing its ugly head again! We kind of feel bad for the guy, Fox would have never had anything to with him or his past if Kinnon hadn't pissed off so many people.
Isn't it interesting that this guy was put on paid administrative leave (ask how many other un-Kinnected individuals have received THAT) when most are just terminated regardless of actual cause? Yeah, Kinnon must be shaking a bit right now - Civil Liberties, Discrimination, Wrongful Termination, and the whole LGBT Rights thing (Mr. Hogan would be well advised to possibly reach out to some other former teachers who may be card carrying members to that group - BIG case there).
Truthfully, what we find most up setting is that the school has knowingly had an individual willing to steal from elderly as their PR person for 4 years (?) yet is now trying to claim ignorance and outrage over an employee who hasn't stolen from anyone, hurt anyone, his 'actions' were not common knowledge (as were Gateleys). Oh yes, its that 'different strokes for different folks' thing going on again - BUT THIS TIME, IT'S GETTING A WHOLE LOT OF PUBLICITY!!!!
PS - Mike B from Fox, we have a few people you could speak to regarding that rigged, campaign contribution funding, lottery over there at MVRCS - yet another great story.....for anther day!
