Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
- John Dalberg-Acton
The MUFSD’s superintendent and board of education have irreparably broken the sacred trust bestowed upon them by the very families they have been charged to serve. As co-conspirators, the superintendent and board have routinely chosen to lead as though with impunity, by recklessly disregarding the longstanding, ongoing and harmful instances of bias and bullying that have occurred in MUFSD schools. When residents have complained, leadership has systematically ignored, threatened and provided cover for both the perpetrators of violence and the administrators who fail to properly investigate, report and resolve these matters. The tactics of negotiation, open communication and transparency which normally suffice to resolve such matters with ethical leaders, only fall on deaf ears here. The power our community has given these so-called leaders, has turned them against us.
Real, meaningful and immediate change is desperately needed. And we are the only ones who can make that change a reality!
