SCHOOL COMMITTEE MEMBER BLASTS SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION ON WEBSITE AND TV AND COULD BE CENSURED

http://snydersstoughton.com/URAL%20CENSURE.ht...

Imagine you are considering moving to our area. You do a google search for information on the Stoughton Public Schools. It takes you to a site where you find links to “BB Guns in school”,“The School Administration on the Wrong Side of the Law”,“MSBA’S Rejection of Stoughton School applications”,“A poor 2012 review of Superintendent”,“How Stoughton plays Russian Roulette with State Local Aid Money”,“School Committee Misconduct”,“Open Meeting Law Violations” and more. Would you be eager to enroll your children? Would you move to Stoughton? Who would post such things? The answer may surprise you. The site is owned and administered by School Committee member Dr. Erdem Ural, an explosives expert, who has bombed with the rest of the Committee and the Stoughton School’s administration.

.....

Ural said I misunderstood his website. He wrote Snyder’s Stoughton,“ First of all, there are, of course, lots of great things happening in Stoughton Schools. Those are highlighted in the official school web pages, and local press. However, it is important to understand that my site does not offer any NEWS about anything.”

So, what does it offer? Ural explains that,“The purpose of the web site is not to be an all- inclusive source of information on schools. Instead, it is there to make certain documents available to the interested members of the public free of charge. The superintendent tried to block my access to certain public documents, and even charged me money when she was ordered by the state to provide them. I do not want the members of the public to also get abused when and if they need the information readily available on the site. Note that the content of the website is strictly comprised of a bunch of public records, without any editorializing. The documents provided on the site do not reflect badly on our schools, and our children. Some of them might reflect badly on our administration for not doing its job properly, or abusing it. I take the time to post documents there with the hopes of eventually improving the ethics and the transparency of the School District Administration.”

As far as editorializing, the site actually contains email threads of his communications with fellow members, as well as letters written by him, challenging the School Committee. He has reported the Committee on numerous occasions for violations of the Open Meeting law, and the Attorney General has ruled for him a few times, chastising the School Committee. In that way, his voice was heard and had an impact.

...

Sovinee told me,“He is a rogue member of the school committee. His website is one-sided. The requests he made were as a parent, not as a school committee member. The main problem is that he has the capacity to do lasting damage to the town’s greatest asset—our school system. He has not had one positive idea that he has proposed in his time on the Committee. I have a collection of two and a half pages of single-spaced legal charges for his complaints. I had to remove him from the bargaining unit because he was giving away collective bargaining strategies. We have to safeguard the public’s trust. He has undermined their trust. He called the West School principal a liar in an email he sent to all the other principals and the press. At the time, she was in Washington D.C. picking up an award as one of the top 100 elementary principals in the country. She had simply repeated what the police had told her about a toy gun incident.”

Ural is either coy or very naive or both. Most certainly self inflated, egotistical and irrational and we are stuck with him another two years.

Poor CW. Sleeps with goats and chickens in that green shack she wallows in. Most certainly self inflated, egotistical, irrational and just plain ugly. We are stuck with Miss Piggy for years to come.
