Resolution Con Job Withdrawn!!! The San Diego Unified Board of Education/Supt. Marten Bullies Lose Their Nerve – Cancel Invitation Insult to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos !!!


, , , , , , ,



Apparently the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) Board of Education and Superintendent bullies lost their nerve, like most bullies do, when faced with the consequences of insulting and challenging a stronger foe.

A resolution simultaneously insulting, inviting and lying to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has been withdrawn from tomorrow’s Board meeting agenda .

Historically, official Proclamations and Resolutions mean nothing to the current SDUSD Board of Education and Superintendent…but they DO have value in their multiple Con Jobs to distract and misinform SDUSD Stakeholders – Parents, Teachers, Students, Staff, Communities, Taxpayers and the Federal and State governments.

SDUSD Board Trustees Barrera, Beiser, McQuary, Evans and Payne along with Superintendent Cindy Marten LOVE the Proclamation/Resolution Con Job.

Barrera, Beiser, McQuary, Evans and Marten pulled the most outrageous Proclamation Con Job almost 1 ½ years ago with a Proclamation to honor disgraced former Trustee Marne Foster in the same meeting they were ordering an investigation into her corruption.


Barrera, Beiser, McQuary, Evans, Payne  and Marten taught new Trustee Payne the Resolution Con Job just 2 months ago to promote a phony public relations “Celebration of Light” event   “reaffirming values of peace, tolerance and respect” while allowing corporal punishment at a SDUSD Elementary school with a “Special Fright Inside Every Child”.


The newest SDUSD Resolution Con Job was even MORE ambitious…a Con Job on the new Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos…and apparently the Board and Marten were afraid to try and pull it off!

Here is the Resolution in item in item G1 on the agenda JUST WITHDRAWN for the Tuesday, February 14, 2017 Board of Education meeting tomorrow:


The G.1 Resolution is a typical jumble of insults and untruths by:

  • Insulting Secretary DeVos by refusing to even use her name in the Resolution
  • Insulting the Federal Administration by accusing their approach as bringing “into question the current administration’s commitment to public education”
  • Bragging about the fabricated SDUSD graduation rate which is just a Diploma Mill Scam.
  • Bragging about winning the runner-up Broad Prize for efforts implemented by former Supt. Bill Kowba that no longer exist under Marten and the current Board.

This “Resolution” document was obviously just another Barrera/Marten Con Job.  

Marten and Barrera

Sending out an INSULTING invitation to Ms. DeVos which NEVER EVEN MENTIONED HER NAME, the politically motivated SDUSD Board of Education led by Union Leadership tool and Board President Richard Barrera and his inept “partner” Cindy Marten, expected that DeVos would decline the invitation through the threat of Board and Superintendent manipulated protests by anti-Trump Administration backers…but then realized it would just enrage the DeVos and the Trump administration…and chickened out.

Gutless bullies.

The purpose of this Resolution Con Job was that by INSULTING Secretary of Education DeVos, they REDUCED the risk of exposing the SDUSD Management dysfunction through an actual visit by DeVos while bowing to the SDEA leadership and INCREASING the impact value of their unethical public relations campaign featuring the phony support of immigrant students and their families.

And what better way to cover up the toxic SDUSD environment than to make it difficult to have Secretary DeVos actually witness the Marten Administration disaster in person!

Like most bullies, they lost their nerve at the last minute….they withdrew the Resolution on Sunday!

However they have not lost their taste for bullying the most vulnerable of SDUSD Stakeholders…ELL’s, Economically Disadvantaged Students/Families/Communities and the the less powerful non-SDEA District Employees.

The Board of Education and Superintendent Marten will need all the falsely acquired Positive Public relations support they can steal from selected local media flunkies when the neediest families and communities discover that the Board and Marten have CUT key English Language Learner (ELL) and economically disadvantaged Student supports due to their financial mismanagement that has resulted in a $124 MILLION dollar budget deficit!


The Solution!

District Deeds has a better way for Secretary of Education DeVos to “visit” the SDUSD Board and Marten using the same ruthless methods employed by the Board and Marten against Teachers, Administrators, Staff, and the families of sexually assaulted 5-year-old kindergartners …and AVOID protesters…here it is:

Have the Department of Education Auditors “visit” the books and interview (under oath) past and present employees of the San Diego Unified School District with a forensic audit:

  • Uncover and expose the ways that NCLB and ESSA federal funds have been unethically and improperly redirected away from the students the money was meant for.

  • Uncover and expose any and all the Marten administration Title IX sexual assault cover-ups

  • Uncover and expose any and all the FERPA violations complaints that teachers, administrators and staff were bullied and forced to drop by the Marten administration and Union leadership.

  • Uncover and expose all the REAL Graduation Rate numbers and fine the District for the errors

  • Uncover and expose all the past and present “Marne Foster Typr” Free and Reduced Lunch violations.  

  • Uncover and Expose all the fake LCFF and LCAP initiatives and force the SDUSD to follow the rules or risk suspension of Federal Financial Support. 

With the forensic audit and any luck, Secretary DeVos will solve two problems:

  1. Uncover and expose all the SDUSD corruption so ALL Stakeholders fully receive the educational funding, fairness and justice they deserve.
  2. Throw the SDUSD into financial default so the Board and Superintendent will have to be replaced.

We already know that Secretary DeVos and Superintendent Cindy Marten have a LOT in common…they are both BIG contributors to the growth of Charter Schools.

DeVos contributed by intentionally promoting Charter Schools in Michigan.

Marten contributed by being totally incompetent and unintentionally driving thousands of Students away from the SDUSD INTO Charter Schools in San Diego.

On second thought, maybe Promotion Hungry Marter should urge the Board to write a “Nice” Resolution and then send it to DeVos…with her resume!

    Thank you again District Deeds for your timely and well-researched post. Looks like the school district administration is afraid of the accountability that the new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos may be implementing. As a low income parent I have been silenced when standing up for my community and for all district students. I hope Ms. DeVos works hard to protect all K-12 and college students from corrupt administrations like the one at our district.


  2. “Political Ideology”?? The only one being promoted is Marten’s and The Board’s. Where’d these clowns come from? They want to “teach” DeVos how to run education? Are you kidding? They all need to stop running their personal agendas and represent ALL students interests. The narcissistic behavior of the District “leadership” is sickening. I was hopeful that Evans could be the voice of reason as a psychologist but no more…….

    Well done Frank. You’re so right about Cindy Martin’s incompetence causing not only a brain drain, but a drain of America’s future, the students, away from SDUSD and into charter schools.
