Kelly Murphy's info. is accurate on the Literacy camp. There were other issues, including jeopardizing students' well-being in the extreme heat. The price was over $35k, which ASDB does not have this year, but ironically Nancy Amann approved the spending of "trust funds" for Ms. Mazza's "International Studies" to France with an ASL specialist friend and her elite chosen students (including her son). Large amount of monies was also provided for ongoing remodeling and long distance traveling expenses for Sports, which highly-paid Mr. Decker (no P.E degree) accrued in 8 mos. alone.
Rob Voreck and FE Butterfly have manipulated the URL addresses on their websites to block all society from reading debatable comments from real, local people who work at the schools.
An ethical entrepreneur for the deaf?
Their goal is to create an angry MOB from out-of-state deaf readers who are blocked from ALL facts in order to fulfill their mission of creating a deafhood "unity" to run the AZ state schools.
Rob Vorcek fingers the work of Superintendent Robert Hill and Dr. Bernhard Jones with EIPA, the Educational Interpreters Professional Assessment program, and their association with TASK12, with Jones as Director. It remains unclear whether these associations are professional, financial, advisory or fraternal. Apparently, by mentioning test fee costs and requirements that interpreters at ASDB must take these tests, Vorcek wants everyone to believe that there is a "conflict of interest."
But really, whose interests?
Vorcek has his own interpreting business empire that includes his own family members, stretching from Arizona, Nevada and California at least. Perhaps Hill and Jones are his competition. Meanwhile, ASDB Board member Sheri Collins is the head of the Arizona Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, which maintains a business relationship with Vorcek through contracts. This stinks more of "quid pro quo" than the Hill-Jones arrangement.
