Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire.

    Pe3: We see this in our district on the neighborhood FB page. Parents collaborating, almost conspiring, to undermine a teacher or administrator.Report

      We get spared this to an extent, our school district is the one of the highest (something like 60%) of the kids being DoD dependents and thus highly transient, but still an issue. When I posted this I have gotten several messages almost immediately of “that happens here all the time.” I don’t know how you solve this, “gossip circle” and cliques are old as time and now that you have social media they are easily “weaponized” against the schools, school boards, and even politicians. My hometown is 2+ years removed from a flood, and the federal money to rebuild the schools is still being held up because of all the infighting and power plays, to the point the feds ordered in a mediator and they still can’t get it solved. The social media over it is tearing up the community in a very real way. Lots of questions, no real answers that I see.Report
