League Regional Director John Schubert Resigns

You’d think that a bunch of inexperienced youngsters…might be glad to get advice on publishing educational materials from a guy who’s had two books published by Random House, supervised a $30 million school district as school board president, testified numerous times as an expert in federal court, and published a magazine and several newsletters…

Schubert’s Education committee emails.

Read them to see how the problems festered. [Editor’s notes:  (1) Most email addresses have been removed to protect the privacy of the individuals involved.  (2) At his request, we have removed the last name of the former LAB program director.  He is identified only as “Mike” or “Michael”.  (3) In 2003, LAB finally began to straighten out the mess by hiring two people to fix the mess created by one poorly trained staff member.]

We graduated several League Certified Instructors (LCIs) this year who are utterly unable to perform, let alone teach, the basic content of Bike Ed Road I.  One was heard to say, “I could never ride a bike in traffic.”
