|Special-ed teacher Marina Golfo tricked her DOE bosses into paying sick leave |
during her three-month prison stint for fraud
Special Education teacher Maria Golfo evidently was found guilty of defrauding the Department of Education, and then was put into Federal prison for 3 months, but got paid by the NYC DOE for "sick leave". See the article posted below that was published in the NY Post.
When I think about all of the wonderful, decent, honest teachers, Assistant Principals and Principals who have been charged with misconduct and then forced into a 3020-a and terminated, and then read a story like the one below, I get upset that the NYC DOE is so random and arbitrary when dealing out fines, suspensions and terminations as punishment for wrong-doing.
The Special Commissioner of Investigation Unit, SCI, is largely responsible for punishing the wrong person, or not punishing the right person.See Veronica Hernandez Case. The so-called "investigators" are anything but that, and tout themselves as "independent" from the DOE yet get paid heaps of money by the NYC DOE. Whenever someone gets a lot of money from their employer, do you really believe that they would go against what the employer wants? No.
For example, consider Gerald Conroy, Deputy Commissioner of the Office of the Special Commissioner of Investigation for the New York City School District. He filed an Affirmation in the Supreme Court in a case I worked on, and he wrote in that Affidavit that he "believed" that anyone who went to Wild Child was guilty of fraud and deceit when they handed in vaccination cards 'without' (he wrote) actually getting the shot. He was never able to prove anything against these people, and now everyone accused by him are back to work (except several who resigned and moved on to other jobs).
Yet no one at the NYC DOE caught Marina Golfo and her three months of sick pay while in jail?
There you are, proof of incompetency, political dumbness, whatever.
