The newly assigned 1st African American Principal under the auspices of Larry Fuhrer has been placed on administrative leave after her refusal to resign after one (1) month of service. Rumor has it, that because she chose to exercise her, Freedom of Speech, she has been targeted by Larry Fuhrer. All three of the experienced administrators,(one a recent superintendent) hired by Fuhrer have been given no autonomy in running their school. None of the new administrators were informed of this prior to hiring. Fuhrer controls all traditional tasks generally performed by the Principal, including teacher evaluation, and creation of teacher schedules. Oh, they are allowed to do student discipline, as there are no disciplinarians hired for this task. Also, they were warned that anyone who does not speak as he wants them to, or speaks out of order by his standards will be fired. One of the teachers who is currently on maternity leave has been placed on remediation after she responded to a survey for the start of the year professional development session whereby she only exercised her freedom of speech rights, but was penalized by Fuhrer in spite of her excellent record at Cambridge Lakes Charter School. As`a result of Fuhrers need to, "control even though he has no background in education...the school has been a disaster since the start of the school year. Teacher morale is very low, as Fuhrer has also instituted a clause in their contracts, stating that if anyone finds a job during the year they will have to pay $5000. The students are also suffering from Fuhrers need to micro-manage with no background in education. The students in grades 1-2 have to endure up to seven (7) different teachers during the day in grades 1-2. Although, parents and teachers have voiced their disagreement with this, Fuhrer has ignored all voices, except his own. There is also a shortage of teachers. One of the unique qualities of a charter school is small class size. Classes at Cambridge Lakes average 24-29 students. Where is the advantage here. Also in spite of the teacher shortage and student class size, Fuhrer is seeking approval from the Cambridge Lakes Board to build a $400,000 facility in Naperville where his personal address is located. The parents of the students at Cambridge Lakes are asked to pay a fee of $120. to be a member of the Board of Education, but they receive no voting rights....this is unheard of. Also,Pingree Grove will not benefit from this property. It is clear the focus at Cambridge Lakes Charter School IS NOT students. It is Larry Fuhrer and his need to control. The Cambridge Lakes Board of Education needs to take action to remove this man and focus on their real reason for being there, "the needs of the students. Parents need to reach out to their state legislatures to change charter school laws to reflect, "the needs of teh students. This is a sad commentary for the students, teachers and parents at Cambridge Lakes Charter School.
