TRY IT AGAIN

Posted by Tim on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, In : Lofty Notions 
Well, all we can do is see what happens.  I wrote to Senator Whitmire -- again -- yesterday, and pointed out all was NOT well at TDDJ.  Will he investigate?  Raise hell with the Powers That Be in the lofty towers in Austin?  Who knows... but at least it's on record that he was told.  AGAIN.

CALL IT WHAT IT IS!

Posted by WebMaster on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, In : Lofty Notions 



Does ANY JCO 1-4 actually believe that local Admin and The Powers That Be in Austin DO NOT know what's going on at Giddings?  That they are IN THE DARK about the preventable violence, the weekly 12 hour shifts, the daily out of ratio staffing, lack of accountability of what the JCO 6's are and ARE NOT up to -- etc etc etc?   You do?  Well, think again, Sunshine -- 'cause it JUST AIN'T SO.  There's a term for that misconception, though.  Some might say...

Pasted below is a letter I mailed to the Director Head Lady of TYC earlier this year... and got no email response -- apparently then, as now, no one in the Ivory Towers is really much interested in my ideas and opinions.  Well, OK.  What do -I- know?

The previous few entries are blog postings I've written over the past few months or so and have been reposted here to remain part of the permanent record of my experiences... you may have seen them before.  If not, please take a look!

Things have not gotten any better, particularly... we've been fed more bullshit and treated to more sleight-of-hand tactics to make things SEEM like situations are getting better -- but most of us can't  be fooled with all the window dressing. 

Take the new pol...

SPARE CHANGE?

Posted by JCO007 on Thursday, October 13, 2011, In : Lofty Notions 



Some things never do change.  Some things do.  Sometimes thing just LOOK DIFFERENT... but the end result is the same.  We can't afford to keep on doing business way we have been and have any hope of making things better for ourselves or the kids.  This website is intended to be a sounding board for JCO's, teachers, and yes, even Administrators to use for sharing ideas on what might work to make our jobs safer and our efforts more effective.

About Me


WebMaster I worked at Giddings State School for 6 1/2 years and ran out of patience in regard to policies and practices... so I quit and started my own business.
