IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #5

Nosher #1: When does the madness stop?

Nosher #2: Are you talking about the “survey” form sent out by our Internal Audit department that parallels the type of info supposedly collected for the Hines “skin-study?"

Nosher #1: Yes. Is the admin or board attempting to cover their rears, or they wanting to prove that the $100,000+ “skin-study” expenditure has merit? Either way, this is just another example of the bureaucracy and board acting loony. Sadly, what makes this new “survey” even more suspect is that it is being done by our Internal Audit department.

Nosher #2: Why does that make any difference?

Nosher #1: This means that the results do not have to be shared with the general public, since they will be considered “audit working papers.” Now, that’s one sneaky way to get around answering embarrassing community questions or having to respond to pesky reporters!

Ed. Note: A salient point not made by the two Noshers is that this new “survey” and all the activity surrounding it verges on harassment of good, competent and dedicated teachers by academic pinheads and incompetent board members.

A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. Mark Holbrook
