Enough is Enough

This article brings to light many issues that are plaguing NRMS with one common denominator- Dr. Jackson. He does not respect his employees. School administrators are afraid of his Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Hide personality. Teachers find him to be a bully. The one to one initiative has and is a debacle, and the only purpose of NRMS is to make DJ look good. Now the cat is out of the bag and NRMS will be stuck with the used car salesman, how did the NRMS board ever hire him?


Why did he withdraw? We were all hoping he was gone. Too many of NRMPS personnel have already left our system. Morale is at an all time low. Anyone at all concerned? Folks take a stand now. Best of luck to everyone.

Oh Well

Guess we are stuck with the jerk. Nobody will ever want him now. The Board should fire him before every good teacher leaves.

Bah humbug!!!

Oh my Gosh! What an ugly article to write on Xmas eve. Fingers crossed for Durham.
