What My 3020-a Arbitrator Actually Found Me Guilty Of - "It Is What It Is" And Nothing More.
When I wrote that I was incarcerated by the DOE for four and a half years until my 3020-a Arbitrator found that I did not commit misconduct but just made a statement to a student in the presence of others that embarrassed the student, many people were questioning on just what did the Arbitrator rule? To some it sounds incredible that the DOE would waste all that time and money on persecuting me but they did and I am sure I am not the only one. While I cannot at this time include the entire 3020-a document for reasons that will become apparent in the months ahead. I will enclose the letter I received from New York State stating what I was found guilty of by the 3020-a Arbitrator. This should put to rest the vile, evil, and outrageous accusations and inferences that "Unity Hack" and some other disgusting people who falsely believe there must be more than I am disclosing.
You might ask how can the DOE justify their incarcerating me for 4.5 years based on no misconduct? The answer is quite simple. It is never about the truth it is about how the simple statement I made which was clumsily stated to a student in a room full of students was deliberately embellished beyond belief by the DOE to the point that it took a 3020-a Arbitrator who demanded real evidence to support the DOE charges which of course, they couldn't and was reduced to what the New York State Department Of Education sent me.
I hope this puts to rest and lingering uncertainty about how a simple expression of praise to a student, clumsily stated, can be embellished, twisted, perverted, and changed to suit the purposes of the DOE in their ongoing effort in removing senior teachers.
To all you teachers who don't think it can happen to you. Remember what Pastor Martin Niemoller experienced and wrote. Under Mayor Bloomberg's proposal you can change the groups in what the Pastor wrote but the process is the same. For the younger teachers. Remember, if you last long enough to get close to being vested for a pension and retiree health benefits (60% do not), you will be considered a senior teacher and under threat if LIFO is changed to what mayor Bloomberg wants.
