Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, Inc. National Headquarters
June 20, 2013

With the onset of the new CEO Andrew Fried man @ 3 years ago, this organization has gone rapidly downhill. The service has declined yet they still receive grant money from many state depts. of ed. http://www.charitywatch.org/articles/learningally.html (one article reporting on this charity's new fraudulent identity)
While attempting to serve students with reading disabilities they have severed the outreach staff, cut the employees & become a poor call center. While the CEO & Sr. staff maintain high salaries they have eliminated middle management leaving low level employees many taking salary cuts, benefit cuts & demotions.

Their new business model is how can we sell more? While nonprofits need to make money to stay in business this was s service oriented organization. (formerly Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic). They do very little to assist students with reading disabilities.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Remove the for profit sr. leadership & CEO. None of them have educational experience or nonprofit experience. The CEO's wife is an independent consultant making a 3 figure salary as well. I believe this organization will ultimately fold, soon.
