I would thank the many education bloggers who have rallied to my defense after the DOE tried to ruin my reputation by giving the newspapers a deliberately distorted file about me that omitted some very important information and the actual truth as to what was decided in my 3020-a hearing. The DOE file, complete with false accusations, misstatements and deliberate omissions made it seem that I committed sexual misconduct and got away with it. The truth is very different.
Thanks to all of you both the Daily News and New York Times experienced the "blowback" and have now realized that the DOE was less than forthright and had their own agenda in sending them selected information that was intended to trash my reputation and others. I can only hope the next time the news media gets information from the DOE, they should carefully "fact check" the information and not assume it is correct or complete.
What is next for me? I guess I will find out if the DOE retaliates and "reassigns me" or will they simply lick their wounds and realize that their strategy to destroy the sixteen teachers backfired? I guess I will know Monday when I report to my school. Stay turned.
Again, my thanks to all the education bloggers and the people who commented on my and other people's blogs in support of me and the truth.
