Superintendent CJ Huff tells News Talk KZRG everything was by the book.
"The Board policy stipulates that if somebody wants to shoot video or take pictures on our school campus, somebody from the outside, they need to seek permission from the Superintendent, being me, and Annie did that."
The fact that neither Huff nor Sharp, who refused to comment to KZRG, see any ethical problems with shooting this video with a captive audience of teachers, says a lot about both of them.
Huff also told KZRG that the meeting was not staged for the campaign video, noting that it had been on the calendar for months.
As usual, this is a case of Huff revealing a portion of the truth, but omitting relevant details. Huff was the one who sent all employees an e-mail talking about the important announcements he was going to make. More than $12,000 was spent as "incentives" for teachers for this meeting. The teachers were then used as a backdrop for a campaign video.
Knowing that Huff and Sharp were doing this was likely to keep any employee from protesting since we have seen the lengths Huff is willing to go to in order to punish those who have crossed him.
