To substantiate his claim, Mr. Bock enclosed a letter from Chief of School Operations for Philadelphia Schools dated May 29, 2009. The letter reports on an investigation based upon unspecified complaints about Camelot Schools' connection to the now-defunct Brown Schools. In a carefully worded document that offers a limp recommendation of Camelot's performance and conclusion on Camelot's business relations with Brown Schools, Philadelphia Schools officials concluded
Camelot Schools has a five (5) year history of generally satisfactory work for the School District. . . . . Camelot Schools’ management gave us explanations consistent with the record we independently verified. Based on our investigation, we find their account reasonable and credible. Camelot Schools and Brown Schools remained businesses distinct from one another. Accordingly, we do not attribute to Camelot Schools the concerns associated with the Brown Schools. Camelot Schools has documented its financial responsibility today. We plan to pursue alternative education contracts with Camelot Schools, subject to the final negotiation of mutually acceptable terms hereafter.
Are there factual inaccuracies in the 2009 post that Mr. Bock would like to challenge? Would Mr. Bock like to set the record straight? If so, I invite him to send specifics in a letter so that I can post them here at Schools Matter? After all, none of us mere mortals is perfect.
Or would Mr. Bock simply prefer to scrub history to conceal the deep moral stench that seeps up from no excuses lockdown penal schools, residential and otherwise.
