What You should Know About the Josephsons’ Relationship With Archer

he evidence is overwhelming that Michael and Anne Josephson have been active, positive members of the Archer community since 2005. They have enrolled four daughters in the school. The two that graduated received various awards and recognitions and one of them was selected to deliver the valedictory speech to both her middle and high school class. A third daughter (C1) was in her last semester at Archer having already received early admission of Barnard College and earned what my clients were told the highest ACT score of any girl in Archer history. C1 also distinguished herself as a leader of both dance troupe and several community service projects. A fourth daughter (C2) was an enrolled in the 10th grade and was a popular student, a natural leader who was very active in Archer’s theater program.

Relationship between Archer and the Josephson family.

The end result of the cumulative actions of Ms. English has been to exclude the Josephson family from the Archer community. The two Josephson children enrolled in the school at the beginning of the school year have both been forced to leave the school. The character and conduct of Michael Josephson has been defamed and Anne Josephson was effectively forced to resign as a member of the BOT. All this happened as a direct result of Ms. English’s conclusion that the family was not a constructive part of the Archer community.

We are confident that this claim will not withstand objective scrutiny.
