This is one of the schools Hernandez took care of
Memphis, I have asked Mary to research what his hours were there against what we were paying him here. Our Super here Art Johnson is trying to hide behind a HIPPA law that prevents county employers from divulging an employee’s medical condition. When asked we want to see his work chart the conversation was turned to another topic. We here in Palm Beach know there is something fishy, but we also want you to know watch out for Hernandez and his friends. We sent a year fighting this guy and although he is gone we are still trying to figure out what he did here.
Here are 2 sites with every story I can find about this guy here. I know there are more, but this is a start.
Granted we gave you a lot of information about Hernandez, but call Polk & Charlette county school boards and see if they hire him or his firm and if not why?
watch this video to see what you are in store for!
Ok, one last comment / thought and will leave you guys alone. How about you guys finding out thru the internet or the government (they seem to keep tabs on everything) what is the best rated school system in the country? What school has the highest graduation rate and test scores? and call that school up and ask them for a copy of their transcripts or even better yet go visit their system and bring it back to your area. I have stated this several times to the PBSD and due tot he corruption here they turn a deaf ear to me. Florida is not the best school system in the country trust me, we are not the worst, but not the best.
Oops! One last thing, previous comments about how Hernandez and Johnson here manipulate facts and figures is correct. There are several ways to take any test and skew it for what you need. This is the only way Johnson still has a job. The boneheads on our board apparently do not know how to read these charts or scores and they leave it up to him to report how his approval is going. If you think your system is corrupt you should see ours.
Granted the achievements scores went up, but is was not because of this idiot Hernandez. It was because the parents actually stepped in and sat with their children to get thru the subjects with their children. Otherwise the way Hernandez set the system up, there was not time to wait for the struggling students. One size fits all, same subject, same time and tests. It was a 1, 2, 3 program and not geared for student questions. Either you got it or not.
As far as any results regarding Hernandez's past, they are all skewed. It is easy to take parts of that program and say he did it. The hardest part to explain is why he did not hold a job for more than 6 months (he was demoted 4 months into the school year @ PBSD) for the past 2 years. He has not completed one full year at any position before parents and students get into an uproar. Besides his friends that seem to keep sneaking him in the doors at these schools, I do not think he would ever get hired.
Just to recap Hernandez's career lately. Miami - Dade $24 million dollar failed system - Fired - Florida Department of Schools spent six months, no other information I have - Palm Beach County School District - Hired in March '09 - immediately raised questions about salary $180,000 (because we could not pay teachers), When school started in August 09 Hernandez implemented his "One Size Fits All" program at a cost of $$$. Dec '09 Hernandez demoted due to teacher parent uproar. Jan '10 started working for MCS and ignoring his contract here in Fla. while collecting his fat checks every 2 weeks. Now MCS is facing the same crap we just went thru. Please listen to us get rid of him and make sure no one else gets him.
One last thing, Ask your selves " How can he be that good if he can not hold a job for more than 6 months? If he is that good why are the citizens of Plam Beach County flooding your comments sections with all these comments? Why is it when he is presented to school boards there is a lot untold about his past at first and his contracts never seem to be complete, but it is imperative he is hired right away? Finally, Why is it that the only ones hiring him are his cronies?
