Human Resources and Personnel, No
Dr. Jetter is an elementary school principal, with no experience in either Human Resources or Technology. Please see Dr. Jetter's resume as it appears on the North Tonawanda website [click here]. Does this scenario sound familiar? Let us go back to 2005, the last time an elementary school principal was shuffled into the HR job. Recall, a certain, Mr. G. Kerr? When reviewing Dr. Jetter's experience, please note his experience in Ken-Ton when Achramovitch was Superintendent. With approximately 10% unemployment perhaps a candidate with matching skills could have been discovered?
Although Dr. Jetter does not have the experience or qualifications to be an Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Technology, he does seem perfect for the job recently vacated by Maryellen Monafo. In an era of high stakes testing and evaluating teachers based on student test results, Dr. Jetter has done his research. For insight into Dr. Jetter's position on testing, please read a recent editorial that appeared in an edition of The Buffalo News, "Richard E. Jetter: Testing, in the end, is about evaluating human worth" [click here for editorial]. So in the end, will the human worth of a teacher now come down to what a child earns on a test?
Good news teachers, your human worth will never be recorded below a *50
