It’s just not fair. School should be out for the heat, beaches and barbecues of Summer, but unfortunately the damaging insanity of failed policy in the Seattle school district, has put the kibosh on seasonal travel plans.
Dean Wormer of the prestigious Faber College has graciously agreed to eloquently describe the pathway that a decrepit individual chose to carve for himself in navigating through the public school infrastructure in a drunken stupor of volatile rants, unjustified absences, despicable behavior, and sexually violating a minor. While this real life horrific nightmare for students and parents, bears no resemblance to the hijinks of the National Lampoon’s franchise of cinematic and merits a serious discussion, the blatantly egregious and disgusting actions of an ex-teaching assistant surrounded by equally reckless circumstances, calls at least for the balancing presence of content from the lighter side to buoy the outrage and disbelief.
In fact, Virachismith, was actually backed by the Seattle Education Association in keeping his job even after failing to satisfy the stipulations of “A Last Chance Settlement Agreement”, an inexplicable offer forwarded by the Seattle School District and an obvious consequence of pressure facilitated by the powerful and lucrative union and an ace legal team.
The unbelievable caveat to this entire sordid narrative is that Virachismith was technically not fired for his apparent indiscretions with the student, and the incident is still under investigation, but for his pitiful attempt to fulfill his alcohol treatment protocol.
To the horror of students and parents, his employment record riddled with unsatisfactory ratings goes all the way back to 2014, and displays the ineptitude of system completely lacking protocols for accountability and a dreadfully low priority towards the safety of pupils. The asinine policy of rendering a public employee virtually from termination, is the gift that keeps on giving in extorting the tax payer, and punishes the good men and women of the education world, as crucial funding is diverted towards defending the scumbags of the world, rather than rewarding and supporting the efforts of exceptional teachers. Even after Virachismith was first cited for violations with alcohol at the end of the 2017 school year, he was allowed to interact with students from seven different campuses as a teaching assistant until his termination in February of this year.
Of course Seattle is widely known for extremist liberal politics emanating from governing bodies, in creating a socialist dystopia of a billion dollar homeless cottage industry and publicly funded heroin injection sites. With the inability of the school district to properly identify a pedophile and take appropriate action, the city is on full scale alert in the search for competent leaders, who get things done the right way and embrace decency and morality.
Currently, the Seattle City Council is drafting a letter to the school district that includes the tired phrase, “Can’t we give him just one more chance?”
