More emails from Bob here:

From: Bob Dunton <>
Date: February 18, 2014 at 11:14:25 PM PST
To:,, Victoria Purvine <>,  anthony calcagno <>,
Subject: Last Minute Letter to the Corbett School Board

I am sending this directly in case it doesn't make it to you via the Corbett District web page.

To the Board of Directors, Corbett School District

The parents of 120 Corbett Charter School students, including 36 in the high school, have indicated to me by name and by grade level that they will not enroll in Corbett School District next year unless Corbett Charter School is offered another year on campus so that it can make an orderly transition to a less toxic environment.

Many more parents have said that they will stay for as long as we have a school, but they were hesitant to make a stronger commitment, especially having seen that the Corbett School Board was willing to oversee the character assassination of its one-time superintendent in order to serve the interests of Randy and the teacher's union.  (This can't help but remind one of Randy and Phil supervising the abuse of a charter teacher at the hands of a bullying Corbett parent, but of course Randy's investigation established that no such thing will ever be admitted to!)

I believe that you, as an elected Board, should be most ashamed of the the degree to which you successfully bullied the second group. Logistically, you should have some concern for the first.  And the fact that a quarter of the charter families have the kind of courage that it takes to risk the wrath of Randy's band of thugs should fill you with awe and admiration.  We can only wonder at what risk their children might be if the word got out.  They have trusted us to keep their commitment confidential.

Well over half of the Corbett Charter School teachers have said that they will not work for Randy even if the alternative is to leave Corbett entirely. Among these teachers are the vast majority of Corbett's intellectual leaders.  If you look at Randy's most vocal supporters, you don't see a single academic leader among them.  The intellectual leaders of Corbett School have been entirely absent from the conversation.  The intellectual leaders of Corbett Charter School will not work for Corbett School District. No exceptions.  What can this mean?

What can you be thinking?  Who are you trusting?

You can do better in both respects.


Bob Dunton, Director
Corbett Charter School
