No decision, no new information on principal's ouster

Original post made on Nov 27, 2013

The Pleasanton School Board took no action regarding ousted Walnut Grove Principal Jon Vranish on Tuesday night, despite a push for the board to say what led to his being placed on leave. Thirty people, including colleagues, parents of current and former students and friends attended the meeting. Ten spoke before the board went into closed session.

Our teachers union is out of control. I am a teacher and know that just a few teachers are doing as much as they possibly can to sabotage all administration. It is a sad thing to see. We all need to work together to bring our students the absolute best education. The world is changing and Pleasanton needs to come out of the dark ages and improve. As the administration ask us to improve there are teachers who will do anything within their means to wreak havoc on this district rather than change. In the end the only people who suffer are your children. The teachers in this district are the root of the conflict.

I am very glad Mr. Vranesh has retained Mr. Paul Rondrick as his attorney. He appears to have a very good track record. He also has filed lawsuits against those that made libelous accusations against his past clients in other cases:

"Meanwhile yesterday, Kondrick filed a lawsuit on Bartel's behalf against at least 14 defendants (and perhaps as many as 214) alleging defamation, invasion of privacy, interference with contractual relations and/or prospective economic relations/advantage; discrimination, harassment and retaliation; intentional or negligent infliction of emotional distress and a request that those who defamed Bartel make it known publicly their comments were false."

I am calling "not the board" out as a liar. It is my opinion that you are deliberately misleading in your statement that you are a teacher. I believe you are hiding behind an anonymous comment section and lying about being a teacher. You say the teachers union is out of control and then go on to say it is only a few teachers who are out destroying everything and everyone in their path. This conflicting statement is just the start of a ludicrous post that does nothing but attack and blame Pleasanton teachers for...well so, so much. Though not much of it is in any way related to the article or the issue concerning Jon Vranesh.

This article says nothing about teachers, yet you have chosen this articles comment section to attack the teachers of Pleasanton? Pleasanton Teachers are also included in those supporting Jon Vranesh. You have chosen to veer off topic so that you can attack and blame Pleasanton Teachers for sabotaging ALL Pleasanton school administrators, keeping the city of Pleasanton in the "Dark Ages," causing conflict, refusing to work harder and change, working very hard to destroy and wreak havoc throughout the district, and of course make the children of Pleasanton suffer.

This talk of absolutes and your exaggerating give you away.
