About the Book

The fact of unfair dealings in the workplace should come as no surprise to any American. In fact, the history of labor and employment in our country is rife with stories of unfair treatment, favoritism, and/or nepotism. Even though these occurrences are bad and pervasive enough in any workplace, they are especially egregious in public schools. This book’s emphasis on unfair dealings as related to educational professionals is the result of the author’s legal representation of those unfortunate professionals who were the victims of “the old boy network”, and those favored and/ or related to the power brokers. The author initially thought this practice was exaggerated when approached for representation until he found himself the victim of the same outrages that he once discounted as “overstated and rare” occurrences. The revelation of duplicitous dealings of high-ranking professionals was a motivating factor in the exposure of the practices herein discussed. The pursuit and maintenance of a profession despite the barrage of potential obstructions that this book will reveal and discuss is this book’s secondary purpose. Its primary purpose is to create an educational environment where our students are served only by the most qualified educators.
