Look what I found..

WhatUSay on the GCG site wrote this;
"From teachers engaging in sexual activity with students, Truancy officer sexting staff members, among other big no no's, and let's not forget the famous Greenwald blunder where he went to the employer of a former high school student (who was being home schooled) to discuss her job performance and attempted to air her laundry right here on good old GCG.com , and proclaimed that he and her employer deemed her irresponsible and a liar....to becoming the district super....what is wrong with this picture? "

Now who wants to watch me wash some laundry?

I think Mr. Greenwald actually listens to those who reach out to him, and has used what power he's had to be helpful. I think he cares about the kids. In my personal experience around him, as a former student, he has had the best intentions and put forth the effort to make a positive difference.

It would take a lot more than laundry detergent to clean up all the crap that has come from Briggs and company over the years, Mr.Greenwald would have to be an improvement for the taxpayers.

Now Harry will take that fat pension and live very comfortably for the rest of his days...

I've not met Briggs. I have had no personal experience with him, but I have memories Mr. Greenwald and I know him as someone who cares and really tries to help people, unlike so many I've met more focused on their egos and a paycheck.

Congratulations Mr. Greenwald!
