NYC DOE needs a Deputy Director for OEO

Somebody with integrity who understands discrimination please help the NYC DOE Office of Equal Opportunity!

 OEO does the same bad job looking at cases of discrimination, harassment, and abuse that the Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and the Special Commissioner of Investigations (SCI) does.

All these groups go after the messenger. If you file a complaint, they will charge you with what you are complaining of. Please make note of the fact that you do not have to have any legal background.

If you want to be a whistleblower, go to an agency outside of the DOE, like the Department of Investigation, the District Attorney or the police.

Do not go to your principal.
