The purpose of this blog is to expose the truths of NYSED, NYS OCFS, Niagara County Department of Social Services, City of North Tonawanda School District, and numerous other agencies in order to facilitate change where needed to protect the rights of youth in education and the rights of parents to the care, education and upbringing of their children. In 2010 this blog was expanded to present relevant information from state and national news.
Although NYS Senator Michael Nozzolio is leading the call for NYS OCFS Commissioner Gladys Carrion to resign, "[t]he strongest words arguably came from [NYS Senator] Maziarz, who called Carrion "the most dangerous person in New York State government." Carrion is accused of deliberately and systematically destroying the juvenile justice system.
Not mentioned in the article, or any other article for that matter, is that Commissioner Carrion has also looked the other way while CPS Investigators conspire with "school officials" to file and determine 'founded' false reports of neglect/abuse, a Class A misdemeanor, against a parent or parents whose child is not in attendance at school for sound and legal reason. A report by the Vera Institute of Justice also failed to address this matter in its report: Getting Teenagers Back to School: Rethinking New York State's Response to Chronic Absence.
Refusal by government officials to look into the practice of CPS Investigators and "school officials" who conspire in the filing and 'founding' of false reports of neglect/abuse, and failure to prosecute all involved, speaks volumes to the "approval" of this illegal practice; it also speaks 'carte blanche' approval to the illegal and ongoing criminal violence against parents who have the right to the care, education, and upbringing of their children.
In effect, this practice continues to reveal the systemic corruption in New York State.
