Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service.

Move over Maude, it looks like you’ve got some competition for biggest moron in Hingham. This is Kerry Floyd Ni, who was recently elected to the Hingham School Committee.
Evidently the Hingham Public Schools are looking to hire a new superintendent. Traditionally how this is done is the School Committee gets a bunch of resumes, picks the most qualified candidates, publicly interviews them for the position, and then chooses whoever can spew the most buzzwords and bullshit, or whoever is the most politically connected.
But this is how how Kerry Ni reach her conclusion.
Yes, that’s right. Rather than interviewing the candidate and researching his past, she has elected to go on a Quincy community Facebook page and elicit anecdotes from strangers instead. Literally anyone could just say they worked with him, or had a negative interaction with him, and she would use this information to make her decision.
I thought this was a joke at first, but the whole things checks out.
The field of potential replacements for longtime Hingham Superintendent Dorothy Galo has been narrowed to four: Paul Austin, a superintendent from Maine; Jamie LaBillois, Galo’s second-in-command in Hingham; Earl Metzler, a superintendent in New Hampshire and Donna Straight, current assistant superintendent in North Andover.
If this poor guy only knew that his future employment opportunities were subject to the whatever feedback that an elected official received from a bunch of strangers on a Quincy Facebook page.
According to her this is not a confidentiality issue.
And she’s right, it’s no secret that he’s one of the four finalists. But the issue here is that if part of your background research for hiring a superintendent involves asking random people from Quincy on a community Facebook page, then you probably shouldn’t be in charge of making decisions like this.
But it’s OK, because she was asking for PMs, not a public discussion.
Oh OK. So if someone messages her and says, “Yea, this dude is such a douchebag, I really hated him,” because he suspended their child, or they have some sort of ax to grind with him, this is permissible because it’s taking place privately. Makes sense.
Then again, this is basically how the Senate handled the Kavanaugh hearings isn’t it? They consulted with social media about what they thought about him, took the word of a random woman they’d never met, and made their decisions based off of that. Business as usual.
meh, why do your job when someone else can do it for? stupid bitch, now excuse me while i go puke in someones locker
She could always go to the townie bar in his hometown and ask the patrons what kind of guy he was, that would seem like a more throrough vetting than asking a bunch of momos on Facebook.
She puts the Douche in Douche Bag…….
Full stop~ all the money that broad has and she couldn’t bother to fix that fucking vegetable can cutter of a tooth? That is a snaggle tooth of all snaggle tooth, tooths! Bitch should stop worrying about soliciting opinions of potential candidates over facebook & worry about fixing that grill instead! Could never trust a loud mouth cunt with a fucked up tooth like that!
If in the professional sphere you put a “Dr.” before your name, and you’re not a physician, you are, by default, a gigantic douchebag.
I think its the Hingham water supply… WTF else could explain the fucking boatload of TB stars?
TB…. Do a google search on this cat Metzler……. He is a train wreck.
I am surprised that anyone chooses to go into a job at any level in public education these days. The working conditions are terrible, the pay isn’t really enough for the job, and every teacher/administrator is at risk of false accusations.
Are you high? Shelley Berman had enough time on his hands as superintendent of the Andover, MA school system to immerse himself fully into not one, but two, absolutely rinky-dink “scandals” involving AHS coaches. Andover pays him a quarter million dollars a year to do this…and probably go to a few “professional conferences” each year to fart it up on croissants and coffee in the Liberty Room at the Ramada Conference Center.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph – sign me up for that gig.
Ni, ‘peng, ‘Neee-Wom.
You beat me to it.
Earl is a former principal of North Quincy High School. He worked for present superintendent Rick Decristafaro (do a quick Google of his name and the term nepotism). He may or may not be TB famous already due to an I’ll timed response to a shooting at the school. Rick is a resident of Hingham as was the former principal of North Quincy High School, a Mr. Ionelli. Though there is no smoking gun, perhaps there is more for TB to investigate?
Well she should be shamed publicly and harassed until she kills herself.
If this guy doesn’t get the job he should sue the hell out of this imbecile. Take her Hingham manse and investment portfolio.
Now that Maude is banned from races for the most part she isn’t hurting anybody. This dipshit is causing potential significant economic damage to these candidates. In addition to being stupid, she is an asshole.
She’s an attorney! Would she allow testimony against her clients that was solicited in such an unprofessional and unbiased way? I don’t know the proper procedure for finding the best superintendent for the job, but I am quite sure that starting a gripe session of the parents of undisciplined children isn’t part of the process.
Get half your friends on facebook to write a great review. Have the other half trash your competitors. That’s how you will win.
Just another reason why facebook should be disbanded. They will be making decisions for those who are too stupid to think for themselves.
We haven’t heard this term in some time but it fits: Dingbat.
Jesus Christ! People get stupider by the day… This lady is the poster girl for idiots everywhere
As a former collegiate division one athlete, a hockey strategy expert, and an authority on the proper way to coach high school volleyball teams, I would be perfect for this position. I am available to interview with you immediately, provided you provide me a box lunch to provide me with sustenance during the long drive to your town.
