Dangers of Blogging

Fellow Georgian-in-New Orleans Sam shuts down his blog because people in the central office of the RSD think what is really going on in his school means they need to shake up the staff at the school. Not an ounce of credibility falling on the shoulders of the administrators of a desperately failing system.

This is one of the dangers of blogging on the one hand, and whistle-blowing on the other. You run the risk of getting yourself thrown in professional hoc and any co-workers you mention jammed up with you.

The people who are really running this train off the track, however, are free to continue making those tax dollars while doing little to address any real issues brought up by the reporting in question. I know there are some folks in the central office trying very hard to make things better. Their efforts, as well as those of teachers, school administrators, students and parents are being constantly and consistently undercut by individual hacks who are incapable of doing their jobs and who remain above any effective accountability measure.

Damn! Wish I'd known about this blog before he decided to close up shop. Will it be around for a while longer?

I don't know how long he's going to leave the content up on the web, but he won't be adding any more to it. It is a shame.
