Our great institutions

Today I received the greatest letter ever written in history.  It reads as follows:

1/2/2019

Dear Mr. Goetz,

The Investigative Unit of the Arizona Department of Education learned of allegations purporting that you arrested on or about April 18, 2018 and charged with criminal damage.  The reported allegation(s) are a violation not only of District policies but also the standards of conduct set by the Arizona State Board of Education.  See Arizona Administrative Code R7-2-1308.

This letter is to inform you that the Investigative Unit has completed its investigation in this matter and has determined that no complaint will be filed at this time.

Please be aware that while no complaint relative to the noted allegations will be filed at this time, in the event of any new allegation(s) of unprofessional conduct, these matters may be considered along with any new allegation(s).  We urge you to govern yourself in accordance with the standards of conduct set by the Arizona State Board of Education.  See Arizona Administrative Code R7-2-1308.

If you have any questions, please contact the Investigative Unit at (602) 542-2972.

Sincerely,

Garnett Burns

Chief Investigator

 

To which I will reply as follows:

January 11, 2019

Dear Mr. Burns,

I just received your letter of the 2nd informing me that because it was ‘purported that you arrested on or about April 18, 2013’ you launched an investigation of me, during which you did not elicit any information from the target of that investigation, thereby allowing him no chance to defend himself.  You say further that ‘the reported allegation(s) are a violation not only of District policies but also the standards of conduct set by the Arizona State Board of Education.’  Then you warn me that ‘while no complaint relative to the noted allegations will be filed at this time, in the event of any new allegation(s) of unprofessional conduct, these matters may be considered along with any new allegation(s)’ and you ‘urge [me] to govern [my]self in accordance with the standards of conduct set by the Arizona State Board of Education.’

In response to this, I have only the following to say:

  • I have no relationship, official or unofficial, with the Arizona Department of Education;
  • I fail to comprehend how a ‘reported allegation’ can be a ‘violation’ of anything. By definition an allegation is an unproven assertion made by another party.
  • These allegations have nothing to do with children.
  • I have governed myself as a professional and an adult.

I am looking forward to framing your letter and publishing it in upcoming books, if not other places.

 

Thanks and Best Regards,

Jason R. Goetz
