SOCCCD: where, oddly, no one mentions the dismal district climate survey

     How come IVC Prez Roquemore and Chancellor Poertner—don’t know about SC’s Burnett; he could be yappin’ about it all day long—never mention the recent district climate survey?
     Read it and see:
"Animosity": written comments on the November 2014 SOCCCD "climate survey" (unedited, unabridged)
It appears that district administration hopes to ignore or suppress the scathing report until after the Accreds' upcoming visit. That's one theory, anyway.

Both IVC and SC WILL be closely reviewing the Climate Survey. It should have been vetted. Going to be difficult to explain to the visiting teams why it wasn't.

8:07--what does that mean "it should have been vetted"? Its results should have been publically discussed and acknowledged. That is, that there is significant dissatisfaction and worse should be recognized. They've done nothing but bury it, as far as I can see.

That's what vetted means--to examine, discuss, debate, whatever. Since the colleges and the district did not, expect this to appear on the radar of the visiting team come Spring 2017, and perhaps before.

To vet something is to examine it. The survey does not require examination. It IS the examination.

The point is that the report does not require vetting (critical examination). It IS the critical examination. What it needs is promulgation. Not vetting. Don't confused matters.
