Re: “Coaches Question How Matt Stewart Got Hired

Hey, 'alleged' Dir. of Athletics from Napa, can you pronounce, let alone spell 'pedagogy'?
Simple American paternalistic cronyism at work is my theory here. It appears the 'good 'ol boys buddy network' has reared it's ugly head again. It is bewildering and downright humiliating that within the shameful abyss of WCCUSD, the school board, HR, div. recruiters and the original candidate-sponsoring colleague are so impotent, such gutless wonders they are unable to stand up like real adults tasked with 'in loco parentis' and admit it's bone-headed incompetence. This is not unlike the on-going social disgrace, the tragic game of collusion in 'hiding-moving around the pedophile priest in the anachronistic, closed culture of church.' Severe enabling within any social context is a bonafide disorder that requires outside, ongoing treatment.
The 1940s-1960s era of the casual sport enthusiast, more often male, walking onto the field or court and being hired on the spot is luckily, a distant nightmare. And more audacious is illogical institutionalized American public schools practice of same 'alleged' coach being promoted in K-12 stature and awarded another half-time assignment as official school counselor to qualify for full-time tenure and benefits. No college education, teaching credential and formal training required. A real irony here is the fact that humble San Jose State University has long offered a remarkable, world-class renown masters degree and teacher credentialing in the progressive discipline of Sports Pedagogy.
I wonder if this backwater redneck Napa dolt has any actual college credits or knows what Title IX is?
Where are you Dr. Harry Edwards when we seriously have needed all along? I urge the hiring of Dr. Edwards as consultant to WCCUSD to help the unenlightened cohort crawl out this disgraceful quagmire that is directly harming our children-our future and the fine staff and faculty of the district. Do the right thing.
