Oregon's STAND for CHILDREN Political Imperative

"Stand for children" is, linguistically, an imperative clause (with and understood subject an intransitive verb and an adverbial prepositional phrase).

Ms. Levin, as an educator, is surely aware of that.

As an expert, she must also know how to take large groups of 13-and 14-year olds with widely diverse intelligences and help them divide into smaller groups so that they can democratically select group leaders and create some group conventions--for self-government purposes...and then divide those groups again, into little squads of kids who ALL have a voice in researching and planning how they will present to the rest of the class--in video, sculpture, stage plays, songs etc--what they have learned about imperative clauses.

Maybe, just maybe, some of the novelty of imperative clauses (one-word sentences like "Sit!" and hidden subjects like "(You) Quit crying" and "(You) Please leave") will stay with kids until they get through the SAT.

But Ms. Levin knows that, right? That's why she's standing for children against these tests? Because she knows what needs to happen in our classes, instead of terrible testing?

When she mentions that school administrators in the past have used multiple test opportunities to tweak their over-all results--to create false impressions about the productivity of their schools--she is saying that she knows school administrators are looking for ways to look better, artificially. Almost like cheating...?

If the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts and Penn State have developed cultures where the welfare of children has long been subordinated to institutional images of success and propriety, why does Ms. Levin not acknowledge that secretive "pass-the-trash" lawyers here in Oregon (go-to attorneys for school administrators with PR problems) are quite capable of delaying, altering, hiding or scuttling any "test results" that might endanger the long, lucrative careers of deep-pocketed patrons in public school administration?

No Oregon administrator will EVER be disciplined for not used state-selected methodology to educate kids. Think CIM/CAM.

When Ms. Levin gushes about U. S. Representative O-Bonameech-E-A's contributions to the Oregon public education system ("136,552 unnecessary reading and math standardized tests that Oregon students in grades three through eight were spared from taking this spring"), she may be forthrightly heralding an improvement she believes in. Or she may be pandering to a political system to curry favor for her organization, lest it be brought to its knees (okay, stretched metaphor) by the bullies who have hijacked the OEA/PERS.

For the record, I provided Congressperson Bonamici with more evidence of bureaucratic bullying and public misconduct than likely any constituent ever will...I am still waiting for her representation (StateSponsoredTheft.blogspot.com).

Ms. Levin's expertise has earned her a third of a page in the NW's most influential paper, The Oregonian...? 

Tests are such easy targets for bureaucrats; they don't talk back and they don't hire lawyers. When next she receives such a vast public forum, perhaps she will have studied up on the imperatives.

Just do it.

Repeat the sounding joy.

Laugh out loud.

Oregon DAS justifies second-class citizenship for teachers (via HR Chief Donna Sandoval Bennett)

July 16, 2012
To Michael Jordan, chief operating officer
Oregon Dept of Administrative Services
Mr. Jordan:
I have been trying unsuccessfully to clear up a conflict with your department caused for me by attorneys who were hired by state employees to bully me.

My teaching license was suspended for six months (3 /12 years after I was fired unfairly) in 2007 after a former ALJ used a unique preclusion finding to grant imprimatur to a 2004 FDAB hearing where current and former Beaverton School District officials were allowed by well-connected lawyers to perjure themselves and to give  false information to a panel of school administrators serving as my judges.

This former ALJ, Andrea Sloan, denied me due process rights to provide shelter for the misconduct of Nancy Hungerford, a private attorney who is routinely employed by Oregon school administrators to help them conceal unsavory personnel issues.  Former ALJ Sloan also aided former TSPC investigator Susan Nisbett, who harassed me improperly for years to sign a confession in support of her cronies in Beaverton and was fired after her conduct was observed reported by assistant Attorney General Raul Ramirez.

I have never been allowed the hearing provided for situations like mine by state law.

I am certain the Department of Administrative Service wishes to be recognized as a state agency that treats everyone equally. That has not been the case with me in my conflict with the TSPC.

I hope you will help me find why I have been treated so much differently than others by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services.  It would reflect poorly on your organization if Ms. Chamberlain of the TSPC had been deliberately (and illegally) manipulating me to leverage the outcome of a civil trial involving her friends at Hungerford Law and Jerome Colonna, then Beaverton superintendent and one of the TSPC commissioners who hired her in 2002.

Thank you for your attention.  It is difficult being treated like state property after working hard for a poorly-managed school district.

Sincerely,
Don Bellairs, teacher

Re: July 16, 2012 Communication re: Conflict with Department of Administrative Services

Dear Mr. Bellairs

This will confirm receipt of your email to Michael Jordan, Chief Operating officer. Mr. Jordan forwarded the matter to me and, as Chief Human Resources Officer, I researched the issue in an effort to address your concerns.

You allege unfair treatment by state employees but then report a state employee was terminated for improperly harassing you. If the employee was terminated, it appears the matter was addressed.

You further allege a private practice attorney and a Beaverton School District employee treated you improperly. Those individuals are not state employees ad the Department of Administrative Services has no authority to investigate your allegations against them.

Finally, your complaints against the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission employees/and/or commissioners need to be addressed with TSPC. DAS does not have the authority to investigate those complaints or your allegations about what took place during your administrative hearings. If you disagree with an administrative hearing decision, you need to follow that agency's appeal process.

Thank you for communicating with us. While we hope you find resolution to your issues, we do not have the statutory authority to lend assistance.

Sincerely,
Donna Sandoval Bennett
Chief Human Resource Officer
Oregon Department of Administrative Services

Ms. Bennett:

Thank you for your prompt response. I have waited years on the DAS in the past.

I think there may be some misunderstanding about my message to Mr. Jordan.

I am dismayed by the ability of unsupervised people to bully me and others. I realize that my job is not highly valued in oregon and so I am not supposed to ask to be treated the same as others.

But that is not such a strange request, is it? Even for a teacher.

When some school district administrators (I believe they ARE state employees--you assertions that they are not will surprise Rudy Crew) became angry with me, they used a dishonest process and paid unethical lawyers to torment me...because they could. Worse, they knew they could.

So my "allegations" are really demonstrable truths that help me explain why I am communicating with Mr. Jordan: I was cheated by people whose connections in state government run through his (and your) office. I was supposed to have signed a confession and moved on. That is hardly justice. It may , however, be one explanation for why our schools are doing so poorly in so many ways.

I worked 70-hour weeks for some curiously-qualified people who got secrecy agreements and promotions to deceive the media and the "Fair" Dismissal Appeals Board that has been created by greedy lawyers.

The people who pay your salary expect honesty and integrity from you. I am not certain why your explanation that the firing of an investigator who mishandled my "case" was resolution. I was offering it as evidence.

I am asking that you department give me the same rights that it gave my former employers in Beaverton. Until Oregon's citizens can rely that in the Department of Administrative Services, there are some serious problems with your agency.

Sincerely,
Don Bellairs, teacher
