El Rio Charter School in Los Angeles made the mistake of hiring Ed Eadon as their acting head administrator. Read about Ed in my earlier blog posts. Here's the exchange from the comments section. Joan Jaeckel removed my first comment - which said the PLANS lawsuit hadn't been resolved yet (which would put ALL California Waldorf charter schools at risk - possibly all national charter schools as well), and which also described my children's experiences at Highland Hall and Ed's connection to them.
Anthroposophist Steve Hale chimed in. Here's the exchange:
Ed Eadon - formerly from Highland Hall is now School Director at El Rio Charter
Waldorf School. After he was finally fired from arguably the WORST Waldorf
school in existence in 2008, he spent two years at a Los Angeles Charter school,
Amino Locke ACE Academy in Los Angeles. Let's see how they are ranked, shall
"The State Rank is determined by a school's API Score in comparison to all other
schools in California. (1 is the worst, 10 is the best). An equal number of
schools occupy each rank. * This rank comes from the 2010 California Academic
Performance Index (API) Base report."
So, schools are ranked from 1 (Lowest) to 10 (Highest). Amino Locke ACE Academy
received the LOWEST possible ranking of 1 (despite a student/teacher ratio of
Amino Locke Ace Academy was shut down in 2011 after only two years in existence.
So, after a stellar performance at Highland Hall, and an equally noteworthy
performance at Amino Locke, Ed Eadon is now ready for El Rio Charter school.
Remember, under his leadership, teachers at Highland Hall covered up the abuse
and sexual molestation of children, taught racism as physiology, taught
intelligent design as science, abused parents and even struck children without
fear of reprisal. Ed will, I'M SURE, bring El Rio and the entire Waldorf
presence in the charter school system to even sharper focus than cover-up
activities of Joan Jaeckel. They're cut from the same cloth apparently.
EL RIO CHARTER SCHOOL PARENTS BEWARE!!!
