  7. The Houston Independent School District's chief auditor was allowed to return to work Wednesday, 5 months after the board suspended him for alleged misconduct & ordered an investigation. Despite the reinstatement of Richard Patton, his attorney, David Feldman, said the district owes him a public apology for an "unnecessary" investigation that appeared to focus on the auditor asking his assistant to scan some personal documents for him using work equipment. Feldman also expressed concern that Patton's responsibilities seem to have been scaled back, a move he called an attempt "to further silence the man who is supposed to be your watchdog." The ongoing tension sets the stage for a possible courtroom battle. Patton had filed a grievance against the district over his suspension in June, asking for his job back & alleging he was being retaliated against for reporting suspected illegal activity involving HISD business to law enforcement. Feldman said at the time that if the grievance did not fix matters, Patton would file a whistleblower lawsuit against HISD. Thoughts on the Patton controversy surrounding HISD ? A.) Like it B.) Hated it C.) Wait & see approach

  10. Many comments regarding property VALUE but never the 9-12 tax authorities RATE particularly HISD's rate RATE X VALUE = property tax DUE. Everyone hammers hcad, deservedly so, who are in charge of Value ONLY. No onme hammers hisd tax rate which results in more tax revenue from most property owners than all other tax authorities combined. hisd's Rate is ALLEGEDLY necessary to meet BUDGET REQUIREMENTS. hisd budget requirement are a RESULT of administrators DELIBERATE INEFFICIENCY and GAMING OF THE SYSTEM resulting in unnecessarily EXORBITANT budget and RATE. Unfortunately for Houston children and property owners Trustees are answerable to the Administrators in practice not the law. Texas Constitution requires public education to be "EFFICIENT". hisd administrators refuse to be efficient with VOLUNTARY assistance of hisd TRUSTTES thereby ROBBING CHILDREN and tax payers of RIGHTS and MONEY. Administrator's motive for this? Easy. Personal gain. Failure to meet ACADEMIC goals IS ALWAYS laid at the feet of TEACHERS[quality] and LEGISLATURE[money] by administrators. Administrators CREATE inefficiency by REFUSING to adopt multi-disciplinary approach necessary for effective and efficient classroom environment Multi-disciplinary approach in the classroom is as effective as in health care. Administrator's refuse to adopt the disciplines of physiology and sociology disciplines necessary for efficient classroom instruction. Administrator's PRIME DIRECTIVE is to avoid RESPONSIBILITY for academic failure subsequent to loss of income and benefits. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR CHILDREN and TEACHERS at the expense of poor little administrator ???
