There is no credibility at Manhattan Center for Science and Math High School

    This is an excerpt from a recent 3020a hearing in which Principal David Jimenez had testified. In her discussion Arbitrator Lisa Brogan noted: “Principal Jimenez testifies over a period of three days on the Department’s direct case and then was called as a witness for the Respondent as well as a rebuttal witness by the Department and his testimony is key to many of the charges herein. HE SUFFERED A MAJOR BLOW TO HIS CREDIBILITY, however when he spoke about the incident which is subject of Specification 1 in the second set of charges. The charge involved an incident which allegedly occurred when the Respondent and Albetta were driving in close proximity on the FDR drive. Jimenez claimed that Albetta thought Respondent was stalking him, and in support of that notion insisted that Respondent drove up on Albetta, an explanation which was contrary even to what Albetta himself said( both on a audio recording of the meeting in question, and at trial.) Jimenez unwillingness to bend from that position was astounding. Either he refused to believe that the Respondent could possibly be telling the truth or even more troubling, he believed that his account was more damaging and therefore must be told. He went so far as to sat that in fact Albetta had driven up on the Respondent – which is what both Albetta and Respondent said happened– then he would think Albetta was stalking Respondent. “(T-759)
