|James Williams : a trademark hybrid of shiftlessness and arrogance|
Has anyone seen anything as comical and self delusional James Williams' job application for the Superintendent's position in Duval County Schools Florida? Jaysus Dubz, are ye daft or something? He actually refers to himself as a shared decision maker and has the balls to use a phrase like "student achievement." He avoided using the phrase Williams actually managed to lower the graduation rate of Black males to something hovering around 25% He also failed to mention firing attendance teachers in the hopes of using them as pawns to force unions to drop pending litigation caused by his earlier misdeeds, bad faith and general sliminess. That this moron in the information age thinks he can just throw this bucket of shite in the eyes of a school district anywhere and not get caught LYING is the best testimony one could ask for of his absolute lack of any character, credibility or decency. James Williams is a liar and a thief. He hired his pals from Maryland to come in here and run an alternative program for the city's most at risk children. Their plan lacked any kind of human interaction and was based on the programs used in drug rehabs and prisons where interaction is discouraged. The kids @44 stared at computer screens and failed because a good number of them were being taught with the wrong grade level software. So when they took their exams the stuff they "learned" wasn't on them. The entire class of grade 8 students failed the math exam. They had a 0% passing rate. Williams and his friends on the board renewed the contract with them and it wasn't until NYSED became involved that anyone seemed to notice the child abuse going on at Academy @44 under the direction of a band of thieves who called themselves Resultech. When the state finally shut them down they took all of their stuff and left the teachers and kids in the dark with no computers no software and no books 2 weeks before Christmas. They also stole 7.1 million in the deal while failing to meet the needs of our most needy students. Resultech saw no cause to return any of the money they took but did not earn. But hey they were James Williams friends from Maryland how could they be bad?
