Re: “Too Little, Too Late?

As a veteran Tucson High teacher, I am saddened by the fact that the only way to get any help with the crisis at our school is through the press. A lot of us have tried to go through the district with our concerns and found that no one wanted to listen to us.

The leadership vacuum at our school is a ticking time bomb. While others may argue that Dr. Clash's cronyism is a sign of chauvinism, I would argue that it is a sign of someone confronted with challenges so far over her head that she is simply grasping for the familiar.

We had our first real faculty meeting in three years recently. The room was filled with angry teachers. There is no tardy policy at the school and no phone number to call in an emergency that gets answered on a consistent basis. Teachers need these simple things to do our jobs.

Is it to much to ask to say we need a principal who is willing to consult with us? Many of us are ready and willing to help an administration succeed. But we can't do it if our offers of help are ignored.

Clearly, Dr. Clash has to go. Please send us someone who cares more about education than their own self -image.
