The Sun Sentinel reports that Miriam Oliphant is back working for theBroward School District.

She’s a $75,000 a year Guidance Counsellor at Dave Thomas (where have I heard that name before?) Education Center.

No, no, it’s not the same Dave Thomas.

Of course, since I’d made a habit of looking up teacher certifications during the last School Board campaign cycle, I just had to look.

…and there it was:

The bad news for all you School Board critics is that the Board doesn’t hire teachers, guidance counsellors, etc.

Staff does.

The very same “corrupt” staff I’ve been writing about?

Wake up and smell the coffee, folks.

Unless the Board members examined the hiring lists name by name, they wouldn’t have known.

Does Oliphant have a “friend” on staff?

You can bet on it.

Maybe even a “friend” whose hiring she influenced as a Board member in the first place.

Now here’s the good news…

Senate Bill 736 will require Oliphant to be evaluated on an annual basis.

For those of you  who might not know, the stories about her as a School Board member were the stuff of which legends are made.

Oh, one more thing…

Another search I just had to do.

I guess we’ll just have to wait until Hell freezes over.
