Ramsey Murphy Barnette - As a former employee of ECS, I KNOW this type of behavior has and does happen on a regular basis. I once had a Principal call one of my students a "WORTHLESS LITTLE BASTARD". It isn't just racial discrimination, it is also discrimination against the students that need them the most, the drug exposed, neglected and abused. The students whose parents are more concerned about where their next high will come from than whether their child is clean and fed. ( and we all know this town has more than it's share of addicts). I have seen them spoken to as if they were slime, they didn't matter because they weren't going to amount to anything anyway.
I have also seen the female classified employees discriminated against. Regularly passed up for an increase in hours or a second part time job. A female who worked there for several years barely scraping by, and being verbally abused by the supervisor, (funny, I don't ever remember even 1 of the men being treated or spoken to the way the women were) while on numerous occasions a man would be hired and within a month or two they were getting 8 hours a day and when asked why, the supervisor said and I quote "I GET MORE BANG FOR MY BUCK WITH THE MEN". I don't care what their "Mission Statement" bs says about every employee being just as important as the next. Seeing is believing, and if you weren't certificated or admin. it didn't matter if their were 5 of you and one Principal or Supervisor. They would believe the Principal every time so why bother to complain, it would just be used against you later. I don't think they even know the meaning of the word Equality at ECS. Even the toilet paper supplied to the employees wasn't equal, lol. From top of the line at admin. slowly dwindling down as you job site and the importance of your position went down, ending with the students and single sheet garbage. As they say a child learns more from your actions than your words. The truth lyes or lies not in what they say their policy is, but in their actions. So don't tell me ECS is all flowers and sunshine, I've seen the ugly underbelly of the beast.
