It's not clear how well the principal's last-minute whitewashing worked - but hours after the inspection the DOE's new head issued a statement saying her office would be keeping a close eye on the school.

Or...maybe the conditions at the school weren't as god-awful as tabloids like the new york post make them out to be?

mike_d85: xanadian: solitary: omg her car is worth $40,000!  how very dare she!

Isn't $40k, like, a low to mid-level sedan or something?  Maybe even a Prius with just the standard package?

This.



pretty sure it is a first-generation X3 too... which go for like $15-18,000 used these days. sometimes even cheaper.

spelletrader: This is more a case of a black female principal that dressy flashy at a school in a working class white neighborhood. They feel that she doesn't know her place and they will complain about whatever they imagine is going on.


ah. its all racism. the not showing up to work for years has nothing to do with it, its all just racism. the apparent corruption and incompetence have nothing to do with it either.

see, it actually people like YOU that are the problem, that allow people like her to exist.  on the one hand she appears to be provably incompetent, callous, in complete and flagrant dereliction of her duties for an extended time frame.
 on the other hand, she is black, so any effort to discuss the performance problems are simply racist, possibly a hate crime. also, she is a woman, so we had better not be male and discussing it either. does that pretty much sum up your insane worldview?

spelletrader: asynchron: Are you saying that you think it's OK that the school doesn't have textbooks because it's not legally required? I really hope that's not what you're saying

Where in the article does it say that the kids do not have text books?!? 

FTFA: "....no reading, writing or math books for the rigorous Common Core curriculum."

Check the link I posted, the books are optional and not meant to be a script for teachers to teach. The school still has the proper text books and is teaching to the Common Core standards, just not with the optional materials that the NYSED sells. Many schools choose to create their own materials to adhere to Common Core. 

Also, the school has been inspected, as the article notes: "There is significant room for organizational improvement," Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said. "But [Deputy Chancellor Dorita Gibson reported] that classrooms are orderly, teachers are dedicated, and students are learning. Going forward, I will have field staff at the school weekly to make sure those organizational changes occur."

They are not lacking any materials and they'll be re-inspected weekly. This is more a case of a black female principal that dressy flashy at a school in a working class white neighborhood. They feel that she doesn't know her place and they will complain about whatever they imagine is going on. 

Also FTFA: Dressed in a fur coat, sunglasses, a revealing short skirt and funky fur boots she looked as if she were headed to a nightclub as she climbed into her shiny red BMW X3 - which goes for a base price of $40,000 - and drove off.

How dare she dress in a way that the Post deems inappropriate for a principal. The nerve of her driving a shiny red  $40k foreign automobile. She just doesn't know here place, right?

asynchron: lso don't understand several people's apparent attitude of "NY Times is the real monster here" in this thread...

And it's the NY Post, not the Times. There are worlds of difference between the two, but I see that yo ...


You obviously didn't read yesterday's article:


"
Students at PS 106 in Far Rockaway, Queens, have gotten no math or reading and writing books for the rigorous Common Core curriculum, whistleblowers say.
The 234 kids get no gym or art classes. Instead, they watch movies every day.
"The kids have seen more movies than Siskel and Ebert," a source said.
The school nurse has no office equipped with a sink, refrigerator or cot.
The library is a mess: "Nothing's in order," said a source. "It's a junk room."
No substitutes are hired when a teacher is absent - students are divvied up among other classes.
A classroom that includes learning-disabled kids doesn't have the required special-ed co-teacher.
About 40 kindergartners have no room in the three-story brick building. They sit all day in dilapidated trailers that reek of "animal urine," a parent said; rats and squirrels noisily scamper in the walls and ceiling.

...........
More alarming, the teachers have gotten no curricula since Sandy. Last February, the DOE announced several new options, including "Go Math" for grades K-5, and "ReadyGen" or the state Education Department's "Core Knowledge" for English language arts. The books cover the Common Core standards, skills that kids should master at each level.
But five months into the school year, PS 106 classes still don't have the books or teacher's guides.
"They have no reading program, no math program," a source said, adding Sills blames outside administrators for not sending materials.
Teachers muddle through by printing out worksheets they find online, buying their own copy paper."

That doesn't sound like a school that has the materials it needs

Again, if there is a source other than the NY Post and anonymous complainants I'd love to see it.

By all means the school should be monitored and her performance inspected. I have family that teaches in NYC public schools, teachers wouldn't hesitate to throw a shaity principal under the bus. Wouldn't even bat an eye at it really, so if they are inspecting the school and talking to teachers there then I'll take that over anything that the NY Post has to say on the matter.

I grew up in a white family in a working class white neighborhood in Queens, fairly close to Far Rockaway. The racism is astounding and entirely capable of this slander and much, much worse. The Post has played on this for paper sales for decades, enflaming hatred and propagating ignorance. 

If there are credible sources of any wrongdoing on the part of this principal she should be handled accordingly. A hit piece in the NY Post is not credible.

What troubles me is the "Can you believe this uppity black biatch?" subtext that pervades the Post articles. It speaks to a certain type of NY'er that gets off on blaming minorities for anything and everything, they eat that shiat up and the Post is laughing all the way to the bank.

The Post didn't put her in that fur coat or that car. The basic facts of the story are not in question. The mayor is pissed off about the situation, as he damn well better be.

Look also upthread - several other Post school-corruption exposes in which the perpetrators are decidedly white and/or decidedly wealthy.

When it comes to their school-corruption coverage, they don't care whether they're taking down private schools like Horace Mann, elite public schools like Stuyvesant (cheating scandal) or some shiathole public school like this one.

Gulper Eel: The Post didn't put her in that fur coat or that car.


Why would it matter what she wears or drives? This is exactly my point. She makes $127k a year (which I find absurd, but I am not familiar with principal salaries) and drives a car that is $40k, which is less than a third of that, seems pretty responsible to me. If she's married and her husband works than they have an even greater household income, making the car less outrageous.

Is her attire professionally appropriate? Probably not, but that is not any indication of her work or ethics. If it was a male principal dressing pastel suits would there be as much attention drawn to it? Nope.

Gulper Eel: The basic facts of the story are not in question.


There are no basic facts in the story, it's all anonymous accusation and innuendo. Hell the Post didn't even send anyone to personally look at the school, they have no idea and just rehash the worst of what they are told in the most inflammatory manner possible.

Gulper Eel: The mayor is pissed off about the situation, as he damn well better be.


FTFA:
"The allegations in the paper were deeply troubling, and we're not going to see our children not get the finest education," Mayor deBlasio said. "Every school has to provide the best possible education.
So we're going to take this investigation very seriously and then make decisions based on that."
 
That's not pissed. That's "these allegations are serious and we will look into it" - and it should be looked into, thoroughly.

Gulper Eel: When it comes to their school-corruption coverage, they don't care whether they're taking down private schools like Horace Mann, elite public schools like Stuyvesant (cheating scandal) or some shiathole public school like this one.


That's great, then they should try doing some actual reporting on the school instead of citing "one parent" or "a source" or "a community member"

If she is a terrible principal trying to get one over on the people than get some real evidence and bury her. What we have here is a ton of supposition based on her looks, clothing and car. If anything that hurts the efforts to remove a truly corrupt official, but they don't care as long as the thinly veiled bigot is buying their paper.

Except the story here isn't school corruption.  Ostensibly the story here is of a sub-par administrator heading up a sub-par school, and the city announcing that it will check in with said sub-par administrator periodically to work on organizational improvements.  Of course you wouldn't know that from the Post's persistent non-sequiturs about about her fashion choices and car model.

I guess I just can't work myself into too much of a tizzy over the realization that New York's best and brightest administrators are not clamoring for the top spot at a low-end elementary school deep in the butthole of Queens.

Note, I'm not defending this woman, I'm hating on the Post for their absurd sensationalistic hit-job reporting.  The Post is doing you and all of their readers a disservice by turning legitimate school performance issues into stories about an "uppity" black woman wearing fur coats and driving fancy cars.

How many strawmen would you like to build today? 

Should each allegation of corruption be judged on those that have happened before? If there is wrongdoing on the part of this principal, and there may very well be, then the Post would better serve the public interest by reporting actual facts over innuendo and supposition. That's not what the Post cares about though, they only care about the dollar signs. 

And I don't give a flying fark who is targeted, they aren't reporting, they are race baiting with a subtext of "uppity, selfish, greedy black biatch" - "Look at how she dresses, SCANDALOUS! Look at that car, SHINY RED! There are parents and community members saying bad things about her, THEY MUST ALL BE TRUE!" 

If you fall for the bullshiat over substance that's your problem. Give me something real or shut the fark up.

Sweet Jesus you can't be serious. You can't honestly believe that there is levels ofappropriateness that range from professional attire, casual attire, clubbing attire, right?

This tactic by the NY Post works so well that even detractors of their methods are willing to say things like "it may be true (and probably is)"

It's human nature to assume the worst of others, throw in public servant and union member, on top of a high salary and you've got one hell of a jump to judgement. The fact that she is a black female is icing on the cake.

I have no idea if this woman is what they claim her to be. I doknow that I am disgusted by the way the Post reports the story. Allegations of this nature demand thorough investigation, there is no doubt about that. If she turns out to be innocent of any wrongdoing it will be a complete waste of time and money, her career will have been harmed and the Post will find another "story" to report in an inflammatory manner. Either way they don't give a shiat, nobody outraged by this will care if she is innocent or not, they've already made their judgement and indictment in their minds.

This. The lack of anything resembling educational materials coupled with the fact that she routinely fails to even show up for work is the issue.

Yeah, the Post made this a hit piece about an "uppity black woman", but the fact remains that she failed to perform even the most basic of her duties.

She should be fired, and would be lucky to only be fired. She does public education a further disservice at a time when the right wing has done its level best to dismantle the DoE and provides them with such easy fodder.

The Fox News crowd is probably cumming in their pants right now. She just served them up months' worth of talking points on a silver platter.

Again there is no one saying that but the NY Post and their "sources" - "A Department of Education spokesman said Sills was required to report her absences and tardiness to District 27 Superintendent Michelle Lloyd-Bey but would not say whether Sills did so last week."

If she isn't reporting her schedule to the Superintendent then fry her, their office has that information and cannot release it, just as they cannot release personal information. An investigation is underway and if she isn't holding up to her obligations as principal then she should be relieved and made to pay back any unearned salary. Just because the Post says it, doesn't make it true.

spelletrader: Moopy Mac: This woman may be terrible (and probably is). But, unless you are not familiar with the NYP, you know this paper has a long history of racial innuendo and that a certain amount of skepticism is necessary whenever reading articles from this paper on certain matters.

This tactic by the NY Post works so well that even detractors of their methods are willing to say things like "it may be true (and probably is)"

It's human nature to assume the worst of others, throw in public servant and union member, on top of a high salary and you've got one hell of a jump to judgement. The fact that she is a black female is icing on the cake.

I have no idea if this woman is what they claim her to be. I doknow that I am disgusted by the way the Post reports the story. Allegations of this nature demand thorough investigation, there is no doubt about that. If she turns out to be innocent of any wrongdoing it will be a complete waste of time and money, her career will have been harmed and the Post will find another "story" to report in an inflammatory manner. Either way they don't give a shiat, nobody outraged by this will care if she is innocent or not, they've already made their judgement and indictment in their minds.


It's not necessarily the Post's methods being effective, but rather she really probably is not doing her job at an adequate level. There is no shortage of underperforming principals, the Post just has to find one of them. If she is a caricature, even better.

One could adjust one's foil hat and wonder if she was paid to be the caricature of the token black/union/welfare/teacher/etc that the right (and their constituency) so desperately want to believe exists.

spelletrader: Ivan the Tolerable: like habitually not showing up to work for years?

Again there is no one saying that but the NY Post and their "sources" - "A Department of Education spokesman said Sills was required to report her absences and tardiness to District 27 Superintendent Michelle Lloyd-Bey but would not say whether Sills did so last week."

If she isn't reporting her schedule to the Superintendent then fry her, their office has that information and cannot release it, just as they cannot release personal information. An investigation is underway and if she isn't holding up to her obligations as principal then she should be relieved and made to pay back any unearned salary. Just because the Post says it, doesn't make it true.

Not that I have a dog in this fight, considering I don't live there and my kids don't go to school there.  But assuming there is credibility to the allegations, then you have to wonder how well-equipped the NYC Board of Education is to actually DO something about it.  Or even conduct a fair and thorough investigation.  Frankly, stories about the cronyism and incompetence in the BOE are not new.  The Post is certainly a shady journalistic rag that shows no hesitation in fanning racial flames to sell newspapers, but that doesn't mean they are necessarily wrong about the facts here.  Would it be any better if the investigation was uncovered by the NY Times, and still nothing was done about it?

No idea, but I'm not saying it is the case.

But the right has been handed a might bit of ammunition against public education, and it's going to be a sh*tstorm.

You know, she didn't even register as "black" to me in these pictures. Not in this article. Maybe because she has her facial features hidden behind giant sunglasses and a hat and hair that's seen some ironing. Had I seen this article first, then... yeah. Okay. (Holy geez the eye makeup.)

I honestly don't care about her race, but if that's actually how she dresses day-to-day, I'd question her professionalism. The chancellor dresses in clothing appropriate to a school official.

Britney Spears is a mom. Presumably she cares about kids, is self-aware by now, and is not a complete idiot. I'd actually expect her to dress more like the chancellor than the principle if she ran a public school. Black or white.

So's she's in the middle of a shiatstorm and elects to show herself in a mini with boots, furs and extensions?  Batshiat crazy delusional.  Me, as soon as my job was being question in the media, I'd rocking knee-length business suits, sensible shoes, scraped back hair and granny glasses whether I 'd needed them or not.  Let people say I was dressing down for the media.  Beats handing them photographic evidence of my unsuitability for my position.

Close2TheEdge: Would it be any better if the investigation was uncovered by the NY Times, and still nothing was done about it?


No, regardless of who is doing the reporting or how it is presented, this clearly demands investigation into the situation at this school. It could be that she is a giant heap of shiat, it could be that there is a group of people in the community that she rubs the wrong way and they are the driving force behind the complaints.

The striking thing to me, knowing quite a few teachers/professors in the NYSED, is that there doesn't seem to be any complaints coming from the teachers at the school. These alleged actions would have them pretty pissed off and they have channels available to handle matters like this. Heck the Assistant Principal could easily oust her and be rewarded for doing so, especially since they claim that she is already handling much of her responsibilities already.

It's not even the fact that they exist. It's that the rest of the population sits there with their thumbs in their asses, hoping for shiat to change.
