I think it's more a question of competence rather than crookedness..

What is ironic is how crooked they are to begin with. They are in it for the money, not the children.

I heard it was a couple of phrases that he didn't give credit to the author...not much of an issue. He didn't resign, he retired and was given a bonus. It's now rather ironic one of the "players" who was behind his being put on paid leave!

Isn't this Russom the same guy who plagiarized his graduation speech his first year as Superintendent at O-E? And then had to resign last year? Lightening strikes again in the same location.

"Both men were placed on leave in February as Michel and then-Interim Superintendent Lawrence began an investigation into complaints against the men. Russom later retired and Fatta later resigned."

Why does this paper continue to post next to nothing? They will not say why the previous employees were let go and of course will say nothing about the current. Why do we always have to rely on the Daily Gazette to tell us more than our local paper?

You can say that again Bull! That district is pathetic. They let 2 good admins...Russom and Fatta slip away, and look what they ended up with. I heard that Fatta got a good job, and Russom is laughing all the way to the bank with his retirement bonus....both were lucky to escape from that zoo!
