Yes, Kinnon is dragging the good 'ol MV name through the mud yet again. Apparently the rules of the state are meant for others - not his royal arse himself! The DESE is about to see the REAL Sir Kinnon in action - as too many of the parents and children of MV have for far too long (that of course is assuming that they haven't already). As we all know, Sir Arse-Kinnon doesn't like not getting his way and so off he trots on his own ego to fight for his ego (because we all know that is what this is ALL truly about). Thankfully he has drawn enough negative attention to his shenanigans to bring him and his ways to the attention of those that actually have power over HIM (and his kingdom and servants).
In case you've missed out on the excitement that we refer to, MV appealed to the Board of Education regarding the denial of MV's request for an enrollment increase and the board declined to take any action (i.e. no lift on the number of students currently permitted to attend MV). While many parents feel that the DESE (and BoE) are denying children the 'excellent education' of MV, just remember - IT IS NEIL KINNON AND THE MV BOARD WHO ARE REFUSING TO ADHERE TO THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OR COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS IMPOSED UPON THEM! We all have to follow the laws and rules of our state, country, society, and for some - school - should MV not be required to do the same? One very wise individual posted on the Malden Patch's Facebook page that he'd like not to pay taxes but yet he must as that is what our government expects of us (and can't imagine too many people who would like to ignore THAT requirement). Unfortunately, when dealing with children and their education, like it or not the laws and rules become even more important and we should all be held accountable. This unfortunately has NOT been the case at good 'ol Kinnon Kingdom (aka - MV).
If Sir Arse would get off his throne and get his ego out of his royal arse, the DESE would be more than willing to consider lifting the cap. BUT, in true Kinnon fashion he would rather spend MORE of our taxpayers money (that is intended for EDUCATION) on defending his ego than paying, say teachers the pay they deserve (no, we're not talking about another raise for Gately - the overpaid 'PR' lacky, or Kathy Kinnon - the wicked witch of special education and all things NOT IEP, or even Greg Kinnon - I'm a nurse by night and 'Manage' the athletic facility on my free time, or Anthony C - the HR ding-dong who was somehow responsible for the $92,000.00 they spent on 'recruiting expenses' several years ago - - -no, none of THOSE people need any more of our taxpayers money). Let us not kid ourselves, he is going to fight this battle (just as he did when he fought and lost the battle with Malden Firefighters about signs) and MV is going to foot the bill (translation - the per student expenditure will increase next year by the cost of the legal fees divided by the number of students plus a little something for his next ego boost). It is amazing that the families of MV can't see beyond the denial to look at the conditions actually being imposed upon the school. None of them are extreme or unrealistic nor are they only being imposed upon MV (no Neil, this is not a mini IRS like scandal - not that we would be opposed to the IRS doing a thorough, deep, intense review of the schools finances, this just is a government agency doing as they are supposed to do ---- HOLD SCHOOLS ACCOUNTABLE!). If anyone is denying the poor souls of students their chance to excel (of course, only those students who would excel within ANY school cause anyone else is nudged towards the door), it is Little Napolean himself. Why not accept the conditions being imposed upon the school? The deal breaker of course for him is his refusal to give up his control of the school (i.e. term limits on board members). He wants to wear the success of the students on his back as their champion or hero (and since MV nudges some people to the door, lets not forget that we are talking about kids of his F and F club and/or those who would have excelled and done just as well in public schools, who do not have any special learning needs, whose parents are willing to bend over and NOT question their child's education or how the school is managed, the teachers, or ANYTHING Sir Arse demands). Of course then he also couldn't be so quick to put down those 'other' students and their schools, you know the ones that can't tell parents who question their methods or limitations 'that's how we do it here and you have other options available to you' - yes direct quote).
Of course his newest is that the alumni are going to take over the board and manage the school (cause, unlike other charter schools and public schools, that is what the board DOES at MV). So, to get this straight, he refuses to entrust the school into the hands of educated, hard working parents (who are truly responsible for their childs success - NOT Sir EGO MANIC) yet is going to entrust it to the alumni? Are these the same alumni that don't have jobs that are saying they worked at MV when they didn't? Family members of Finn and Brown? One can be sure that Mini-Me Kinnon (his own son) would also be second in line to the thrown. Oh, just who parents want making educational decisions regarding their children....Brilliant Neil, just brilliant!!
