Tom Barnet is a hypercrit. The mountain valley school district education system an beleifs are obsolete. Tha education the M.V. school district provides is outdated an and is taught inproperly in poor manners. Tom B.is not even liked by the towns people in Hayfork California. Matter of fact, he left the last school district he worked for due to tha hard time given to him by the towns people. Tom B. will lie his way to the top and will manipulate his students in persuasive techniques. Tom Barnett has abused the right of his students and has intruded on students home personal home. Parents of Hayfork are unhappy with Tom Barnett. Kids Speak out about their mistreatment by Tom Barnett and M.V. school district employees.Its beleived that the employees favor students and don't give the others students the same opportunity at education its self. The fact that Tom Barnett will intrude in on home privacy of his students is wrong. thats more like home invasion but on a level of a perverted peeping tom which is illegal to peep on people on their own property. I could tell more about tom Barnett that would make u think twice about this guy, he's not the good nice guy he wants you to see him as.I only say this becuase i was the super intendent of Mountain Valley School District and i have had so many complaints about Tom Barnett when i worked their that it would cause me to lose my nerve with people, and rememember that education is to help people an to open their eyes to the truth and their i was pretty much telling them they where wrong when they could have been right and most likely where. Its not a easy job being a super intendent but no matter what happens you should deprive children of their education or favor students. Prejudice, bias, slandr, manipulation, etc. are factors of a corrupt leader in the mountain valley school district. Tom B. does his job poorly an wen he's not working he's drinking alcohol when he gets the chance. The Man Tom Barnett is an alcoholic himself an has given into a drug. He not only drinks after work but will drive drunk to the store to get more beer, puting others lifes at stake. Their is much more about Tom Barnett you don't seem to know about but i bet if ou took the time an did some research in Hayfork on the towns people you would get mor opinions an storys about Tom B.
Sincerely,
yours truly, D.S.

I honestly do not believe that this is the REAL Dave "Shoemaker"! In fact, I don't even think that is how his last name was spelled. Course the complete give away is all the misspelled words and bad grammar. The real "Mr. Shoemaker" was a highly intelligent, educated individual who would not even consider commenting on these articles, especially in the manner above! He would have at least posted facts not gibberish and would not have flaunted his employment as superintendent.
Even though the facts still remain that Barnett isn't perfect, the people running that county are undeniably pathetic as well. Its all about "Everyone else does it so why cant I?" ... of course Barnett is just a gofer... he does what he is told to do. How else do you think he got his position? Luck? Yeah you wish!
