Michael Hanson is a cold, greedy man with the role of Superintendent of Fresno Unified School District. Fresno Unified School District was on the brink of bankruptcy in 2005 and now Mr. Hanson is asking for a pay raise of $350,000 with benefits included. Mr. Hanson wants to make about 10x the amount of a beginning teacher. This is appalling!
He came from an upper-middle class school district called Elk Grove Unified which compared to Fresno Unified School District is like night and day. His tactics are basically slash and burn - cut out principals and fire anyone who gets in his way. He is young, inexperienced, and only has a master's degree-not a PhD.
Why are we paying him such a high salary if he cannot even prevent racial violence on high school campuses and the deaths of students involved in fights. Why are we allowing him to rip off our community? He is just going to take the money and move to another community. He has no understanding of the various ethnic groups of Fresno or the realities of being poor.
This man is a Harvard elitist who does not care about anyone but his paycheck! He hates teachers and privately refers to them as dumb deadbeats! He is a businessman out to make a buck off of taxpayer money! Get rid of this guy and replace him with a qualified person with more experience!
Mr. Hanson only deserves about $100,000 a year. He is not a good superintendent-teachers, students and parents do not trust him or buy into his false advertising. Test scores are basically the same and the morale of teachers has sunk to an all-time low. In fact, he is making a mockery out of teachers with his outrageous request for a raise.
He is also making a mockery out of Fresno taxpayers who are funding his salary. Let's unite, strike, protest, and get rid of this cold, greedy, uncaring, racist, unethical, pig! Speak truth to power. Let's also get rid of Board members that support this ripoff. This man has not done any good for Fresno Unified School District.
The dropout rate is still the same! Students have died in fights! Teachers are depressed! Morale is at an all-time low! Michael Hanson is laughing all the way to the bank and thinking about his material items, as students are attending underfunded schools and begging for new desks, books, and items they need to learn in a good environment.
Stop ripping of Fresno, Mr. Hanson! Get out of town you racist, greedy, perverted, immoral, scamming crook! We will no longer be fooled by your lies. Expect us to harass you at every public event-the way you harass us with your scams behind the scenes!
