Did she blame it all on her being an affirmative action hire? Or just her congenital disposition towards crime and cheating? Or both?

Gene Harris is a disgrace to any form of government in the modern era. She got her job only by virtue of affirmative action and look how that has turned out. She mismanaged Columbus City Schools into extreme corruption and then waddled off into a six figure retirement on the tax payers dime. This woman is / was corrupt and incompetent.

The state auditor said earlier this year that Harris presided over a "culture of deceit" in the school district and presented evidence that Harris had been told repeatedly that her administrators were doctoring the district's data to make schools and the district look like they were performing better than they were. Harris has said that she did not know anyone was breaking the law.

Though I personally believe Harris should be tied to post at Broad and High and tax payer coukd come by and give her 100to lashes until ahe is dead, she may not believe or know t was a crime. After all a judge threw out a.parents law suit because the teachers and administrators were just doing their.jobs. I will have to look up that judge later.

just blacks being black. That's why even if one is somewhat trustworthy, that one has five co-stains who will do a crime and that one will suddenly become lookout. They have an allegiance to crime like we have to getting up and going to work.

The above racists have no place in this public discourse. While it was criminal, it was not because of race or anything related to race. The fact that you are not capable of writing a coherent grammatically correct sentence is no more related to race than the data scandal. It's just related to stupidity plain and simple.

Something is seriously wrong if the courts don't pull back her bonuses and send her to prison.

Not just HER bonuses, the bonuses of everyone who profited from the faulty data.
