If you think that Notre Dame is white trash , you obviously don't know what white trash is. Notre Dame is filled with rich,classy people. Maybe 2% of the population at Notre Dame is trashy, but white trash can't afford to go to Notre Dame.
Rich classy people? Umm...ok. But that's a separate argument.

Being White trash has nothing to do with money however.

Great point! Lots of trash families at ND...some do have $$ too. Money don't make classy

No place, no school, is perfect, yet ND continues to be a better alternative to what is out there. Administrators in all schools do their best, and still there will be those who do not like them, think their efforts are substandard and that they could do a far better job than the person actually doing the job. I know many N D grads who are proud of their school, and I think they have good reason to be. Whether Sr Anna Mae is the best principal the place has ever had is certainly debatable, but calling her names is childish and should be beneath everyone here.

Speak only of what you truly know. Do not spread rumor or slander anyone. I realize it's easy on forums like this to just let loose, but let's try to be kind while stating our case.

Having been around ND for years, I can tell you that Anna Mae has never been totally well adjusted and appropriate, but at least was able to keep a pretty good school together because she had good people in key spots (vice principal, head coaches, teacher leadership).
But the past couple of years she has gone off the rails, I don't know if it is medical or mental or painkillers or what it is. She is paranoid and harsh and makes mountains out of mole hills. Not at all capable of running the only private school left around here.
If she is left in that position much longer, the school with become like Rome Catholic. The last 15 years of leadership at RCH were very poor and without Griffis AFB feeding the school they closed because the locals wanted nothing to do with the admin there.
Anna Mae has put the Utica community in the same position.

There are many capable folks out there who could take over leadership if that is truly warranted. She, perhaps like many older teachers and staff, should consider retirement.

Sadder yet is the fact the new CEO, cfo, and several board members know exactly what is going on, see the decline in enrollment, and yet continue to allow her to run the ship into the iceberg....full speed ahead. I know Jim Joseph is getting an amazing write off as compensation...but it's not millions, I can't believe ruining lives in the process is worth it.

Agree, if she retired right now, it would take many years to undo the damage she caused

It's going to take years to undo lots of damage to this country, educational system, to the city, but that's another story, Should no change be made because fixing it would be difficult?
I hardly believe that anyone on the board would allow an inept person to run the school. How would they benefit from that? If what you say is true, if she sinks the ship, their "gravy train" goes with it. If your theory is correct, th e y would only want the school to succeed.

It is for sure a mental thing with anna mae. Ask any of the staff that has been there. They have all seen the change. She has sime cognitive issues setting in. This is not disputed by all that know her. She needs to be removed

Most see gravy train as short term...then they will move onto something else...the ones in charge have no vested interest, nor do they care. Joseph certainly didn't care about anyone at Oneida limited
