has hoodwinked teachers, the UFT and even the DOE into thinking that he is an "independent" investigator.
|Richard "Dick" Condon|
I do not believe this is true.
In fact, Condon substantiates claims and allegations made by politically correct members
of the Department of Education and City Law Department in order to remove from the system whistleblowers and people who "know too much" about the corruption and fraud within the DOE. He gives the investigators the "right" to do whatever is necessary to get
the charge 'proven'.
|SCI Investigator Jeffrey Anderson's business card|
About a year later he called me on my home telephone number and left a message telling me that he had not substantiated the complaint against Senatore, and Senatore was back at the school. Key to the disturbing result here is that "Investigator" Anderson did not interview me, not ever. He did not interview me because he knew he had to NOT substantiate the complaint, and talking to me would force him into making a different conclusion.
That's why I call this so-called right "the arrogance of immunity", because these thugs take advantage of their jobs and positions within the power hierarchy to do whatever they feel is
necessary to be successful, i.e. to "prove" a charge - or not - depending upon the "advice" of their Superiors. Take Louis N. Scarcella, for example. His work in validating crimes involved, reports say, getting witnesses to lie in order to convict. Scarcella worked for the DOE on cases as well.
|City Law Department's Corporation Counsel Michael Cardozo|
When Carmen Farina would not tell anyone where the $225,000 Annenberg Challenge For
The Arts' grant money was, P.S. 6 parent and Corporation Counsel Attorney Jane Gordon
helped Carmen throw the Arts Together Community Partnership into the garbage and shielded Carmen from any questions. Jane Gordon, PTA President, was subsequently removed from that position by the PS PTA Executive Board. Jane then joined me as a parent at Stuyvesant High
School, and led the defamation against the Chinese parents, especially Mary Lok, in order to hide
the theft of money by the PTA Executive Board. Jane was assisted in this effort by none other
than Gwen Hopkins, who often threatened me and tried to squash me and my voice at PS 6,
Booker T. Washington MS 54, and Stuyvesant High School. Obviously she was not successful silencing me. Gwen is very good at giving seminars on Title 1 funds and other parent programs, while she hides the corruption and fraud of principals who take the money and use it for their own purposes.
Gwen Hopkins was formerly the Director of the Family Engagement Office at 49-51 Chambers Street, 5th floor, where, as luck would have it, one of my friends worked. My friend told me what Gwen told her colleagues about me (Gwen, you should be more careful of talking badly about
parents you are supposed to be 'helping' in front of people you work with!!!). When I saw my
friend in the elevator or in the lobby, we never showed that we knew each other.
My conclusion comes from documenting for 10 years the compulsory arbitration known
as 3020-a or "teacher trials" and seeing false claims validated by employees of the DOE,
children and parents. I have done a lot of work on finding out why people lie under oath
at 3020-a, and the motive is usually to get something in return: DOE employees get to keep
their jobs (temporarily), parents can get a better grade for their children, and students can
graduate, have their records cleaned up, etc. These deals are made all the time in the back
rooms of 49-51 Chambers Street and 100 Church Street, home office of the Corporation Counsel Michael Cardozo and the New York City Law Department.
