Talk about sick, GCCS has allowed Bob Hall free rein to use Charlestown High School as a political arm. He has a paid city employee, "School Liaison" Kerry Vaughn, working there. She is the wife of City Council president Eric Vaughn. Every campaign, Hall's literature is plastered with stats about high school graduation rates, college-attendance rates, etc., creating the impression that he is responsible. He was pictured with Dr. Melin at the high school last fall welcoming incoming students to CHS. What the hell? He was pictured with the Teachers of the Year. The list goes on.
Hall recently tried to scuttle the decision made by GCCS to hire a new assistant principal at CHS, because Hall didn't approve of the selection committee's choice. He obviously thought he had veto power over new hires there. Ms. Vaughn also got in the act, and told the principal she couldn't work with the new assistant principal. Sick, sick, sick. I wish Dr. Melin would put his foot down, and instruct all the Charlestown school principals to keep politics out of their schools, and keep Bob Hall at arms length. This is especially needed at the high school.
