Default Mrs. McCool, victim of injustice

At the conclusion of the 2011-2012 school year, Mrs. McCool was surplused from her position as a special education aide as a result of force reduction. School board policy mandates that surplused employees be given the opportunity to fill the first comparable vacancy for which they are qualified.


The very position from which Mrs. McCool was surplused was recently posted soliciting applications. Mrs. McCool applied and interviewed. Despite Mrs. McCool's entitlement, qualifications, and experience, the position was awarded to an unqualified, inexperienced candidate.


A prerequisite for the position is an associate's degree, 60 college credit hours, or successful completion of the WorkKeys exam. Mrs. McCool possesses associates, bachelor's, and master's degrees, has passed the WorkKeys AND Praxis exams, and has experience in the position. The candidate awarded the position has no post-secondary education, has not passed the required exam, and has no paraprofessional experience (with the exception of occasional substitution.)


Private sector employee selection allows for discretion. This is a public school.


I appealed the employee selection to the school board superintendent. (Mr. McCool can be perceived as intimidating.) My wife does not want me to fight this battle for her. BUT I CAN'T STOP! Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.


What do I do?

Fight the fight!

She'll be pissed off at you for a while, but she'll be very happy with the outcome if she gets the position.

She will get the position if I fight.
This is a job that pays less than $15,000 a year. But it is the job she wants.

Appears to be a case of hiring younger, less intelligent, or less educated people who will work for a lower wage.
Probably have a hard time with this one but give 'em hell!

The prerequisite is part of the no child left behind act.

I think with all those credentials and given the pay sucks she ought to be doing some serious job hunting for something that actually pays. With a masters she should be making over 100k. Then Mr. McCool could buy some more guns.

MisterMcCool does pretty well. That is why Mrs. McCool has the luxury of working at a job she wants rather than a job she needs.

Just be careful if Mrs McCool really doesn't want you ti fight it. Grew up with 3 sisters and now have two daughters. I tend to want to jump in and fix things for them but most of the time they just want me to listen and let them work it out for themselves. Other times when I try to step back and listen, they come back with "Hey, I told you this was broken, why didn't you fix it yet?". Make sure you do what she really wants.

The woman who got the job really needed it. Her family has some financial issues. That may be why she got the job. My wife's friends at the school told her to accept it and apply for the next vacancy. She is sure to get it. BULL****! She was sure to get this one. The principal violated school board policy and ignored the prerequisite imposed by the school system and the no child left behind act. This is incompetence, abuse of power, or both.
Public service employment is not given to the most needy applicant! Do we really want financial failures and homeless people teaching our youth?
You would think that, of any employer, the school system would be the most likely to give preference to the more educated candidate.
