More bad news for Charter Schools today.

Roseda Goff, the Former School Superintendent of City Day Community schools in Dayton was sentenced today for blocking a report of suspected child abuse.

I hate to say it- but it really is another example of Charter Schools making really bad choices about their leaders.

The crazy thing about this story is how long it went on- and how much crap had to happen before they eventually fired this women.

Last February the State began investigating City Day schools – specifically a ‘consultant’ hired by Goff- after students made amazing and quite unbelievable jumps in their test scores thanks to training by the consultant.

What happened after that shows how fucked up our charter school system is. Just check out these headlines from the Dayton Daily News:

April 10, 2007 City Day on “probation”
May 16, 2007 City Day sponsor urges superintendent’s removal
May 21, 2007 ERCO to City Day: Fire Goff or else
May 29, 2007 Goff stays; schools and teachers go
May 30, 2007 Board defies order to fire superintendent
May 31, 2007 Sponsor may close school or fire board
June 1, 2007 City Day board forced out

Finally, on July 11, 2007 City Day finally fired Goff. And a few weeks later she was being investigated for calling an abused girl a liar- and sending her home to get beat up again.

How many examples of bad charter school management do we need to see in Ohio until we change our system?

    This case is one that I am close to being a former employee of the school. Everything that has been reported is the absolute truth. It is sad to see how the school system is failing our children. This woman was a dictator, pure and simple, no one dared to cross her-students and teachers included.
