this is one very arrogant man. he has been a disaster for hartford with his "new reforms". we now bus 23,000 children all over Hartford's district. money that is better spent on supplies that are lacking. and to top it all off, no one has mentioned his DUI charge as well as one for sexual harrassment. wake up Hartford...or is it too late??

2 dui's and it never made the paper!!! Well since he is so insulated by Mayor Perez and David Medina his media specialist(read former editor of the Courant)it's no surprise. What a shame for all of us that live here and have to watch it all collapse. The Board election is coming in the new year. This is the time to elect people with a BACKBONE, ready to really represent the parents and not this mayor who has led us to ruin.

Yes, but when a black female judge is arrested for DUI the story is there for all of Connecticut to see. I guess the playing field is still not level.

I've met that Judge and she IS a lady, no doubt about it. She has always been fair and reasonable unlike Adamowski. You are so right...Women are made to be held accountable for their actions!!

I heard him speak at a MARG meeting & he was brillant & answered obnoxious questions with calm assurence. His ideas will do much good if implemented,but the education establishment could drive him to drink & drive...him away too!

Any details available? the rumours have been circulating and most say the most recent arrest happened in West Hartford, but unable to find any record with West Hartford PD. Any deatils would be very informative, approx. date? town that it happened in?

Let's hope when the BRILLANT drunk is out driving around drunk and getting thrown out of the
Trumble Street Kitchen that he does not hit some innocent person and the good people of Hartford won't be stuck with the legal bills in as much that we are paying his car lease and condo fees. Superman where are you!

Please let’s not be fooled again. It is my understanding that the same situation happened to the Cincinnati school district. Dr. Adamowski left Cincinnati school district without warning. They too inquired whether or not he was leaving and he told them the same thing.

The one thing that I will say to the Hartford community is please keep your eyes open and your guard up.

Let's bring one more rumor to the surface: It is being said that a "buy out" of his contract is being negotiated. Let's hope the HBOE realizes that the community would look unfavorably at such a decision; especially in light of layoffs, budget cuts, and funding shortages. If he leaves he should just leave. No "reward" for a job left undone.

Does it surprise anyone Doctor Adamowski is looking for a new job, they all play this game. As soon as they get a new job, they start looking foe the next. It's the education bureaucracy. School Supers who love to be called Dr's are clowns, it a joke field of study. Bring back Tony Amato.

Dr. Adamoswki, prove these guys wrong...Start by paying your own rent and maybe by a car. That will shut them up.

Dr. Adamowski has done a credible job and the Hartford Public School Community should be very proud of their children. Mayor Perez always comments that Hartford is on the rise and I am proud to say that the Hartford Public Schools are on the rise. It is going take time, but I have tremendous faith in the Hartford community, the school leadership and the school staff.

I was just trying to be cute-that obviously went over your pointy little head. I just want to see some proof of these alledged arrests.
