Sills has required parents to pay more than $110 per child for the annual, fifth-grade shindig. The girls must rent little white dresses that look like bridal gowns, and the boys must rent tuxedos with tails, sources told The Post.

The fark?

It reads like the script of an unbelievable, melodramatic kids movie. Yet, having worked with NYC public servants for a number of years, I'm inclined to believe it. I've seen that type all too often. Petty tyrants with little supervision in a district that nobody really cares to supervise. The way she did herself up as belle of the ball? She saw herself as queen of her fiefdom, and this was her last little ceremony before her subjects left her dominion. Of course they had to dress up and dance for her at their own expense. Or some crazy shiat like that.

The follow-up stories should be interesting on this one at least.

True.  When she decides to do away with the formal wear and have a Twerk-a-Thon bash with the kids instead.

I just blinked a half dozen times looking at it.

When I was an undergrad I wanted to be a teacher. I did great in all my prep classes until I got to student teaching, where I had great difficulty. One part of my problem was my ancient-as-fark advisor, who docked me points for not wearing a tie. Ignoring my teacher was not wearing one, and one around me was except for him. I was so frustrated and driven to the brink by the insanity of student teaching that I left the teaching profession all together after getting my degree.

And this woman is an administrator and showing up like THAT?

I don't care if she's running Xavier School for Gifted Youth, she needs to be shot for wearing a costume like that to teach students in!

If we researched her CV, we would likely find that she hails from a similarly rotten middle school, maybe even the same one. She studied the bare minimum through college. Realized too late that she hates teaching the underserved and is not really good at teaching anyway. Became an administrator. The pattern continues.

Poorly educated people are verbal about concrete circumstances; educated people are verbal about abstractions. One will shout when the heat or cable is turned off. The other will go further and shout when the school takes Shakespeare out of the curriculum or does not replace a broken kiln.

This is just another example of NY Post being an uninformed rag posing as a informative news source. Common Core is a set of standards, there are no mandatory materials required to the standards. New York State Department of Education does offer curriculum materials to meet the standards, through the Engage NY program. These materials are totally optional and in no way necessary to meet the Common Core Standards of education. 

Here's a link to the information.

Granted that, if the details of this story are true (keeping in mind that the source is the NYP), this particular idiot has a talent for drawing bad publicity down on herself, and almost certainly should be fired.

This proves that you can't find arrogant, incompetent, lazy, embezzling white male principals in NYC, because if they existed, of course the NYP would be there, in a flash, because their agenda is only ensuring the best possible education for the city's children, for example, Creative Broom Pushing.

Wait, no, this proves that we need to abolish all public schools, and switch over to corporate-run and -sponsored schools, because Free Market.

But I can tell by your eyebrows that you think the NYP leapt gleefully on this particular story.  Well I can tell you that they never even noticed that she's black and female.  The NYP does not work that way.

Regarding your smug diatribe...not so much. From last summer:

thenypost.files.wordpress.com

A disgraced principal who resigned amid a 2004 cheating scandal in The Bronx has resurfaced in a Hamptons school that's being investigated for a testing irregularity.

Eric Casale, 41, high-tailed it out of PS 91 during a probe into charges that he covered up for a math teacher who gave out test answers on a critical Regents exam.

He abruptly resigned before the probe was completed but somehow landed another principal gig at the tiny Springs Union Free School District in East Hampton just months later.


September 2012.

thenypost.files.wordpress.com

The exclusive Upper East Side Nightingale-Bamford School for girls has been rocked by scandal after married teacher Jonathan Fuller was suspended amid allegations he had an affair with a student, The Post has learned.

August 2013.

Nine board members worth billions have bolted from tarnished Bronx prep school Horace Mann as sex-abuse victims clamor for accountability in the wake of paltry settlement payouts as low as $20,000.
The exodus started last fall after a hard-line faction within the board reversed a tentative agreement to "do right by the victims" by conducting an internal investigation into decades of rampant sex abuse of more than 50 students by at least 20 teachers from the 1970s through the 1990s, multiple sources told The Post.


November 2011.

The former assistant principal of a top all-boys Bronx Catholic school last week quietly received a sweet, no-jail sentence after pleading guilty to having kiddie porn on an electronic device at the school, it was revealed today.

And now the Marist Brothers - the religious order that runs Mount St. Michael Academy - is refusing to answer whether ex-asst. principal Brother Lawrence Gordon has ever been previously accused of sexual misconduct with a child.

The Marist Brothers also refuse to say what - if anything - was done to locate the young boys seen in the sick pictures on Gordon's USB drive found plugged into a computer the 65-year-old brother used at that school.

"I'm not here to answer," sniffed Brother Ben Consigli, who heads the Marist order in the United States, when asked those questions by The Post today.

spelletrader: black__hippie: How long until we find out she was keeping the money for core curriculum books.

This is just another example of NY Post being an uninformed rag posing as a informative news source. Common Core is a set of standards, there are no mandatory materials required to the standards. New York State Department of Education does offer curriculum materials to meet the standards, through the Engage NY program. These materials are totally optional and in no way necessary to meet the Common Core Standards of education. 

Here's a link to the information.


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.

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

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?

The vast, vast majority (90%) of NYC principals make between $100K and $150K. How would they afford multiple homes?

The fark?

Came to mention this as well. Not sure how that's legal. Or even possible.

It reads like the script of an unbelievable, melodramatic kids movie. Yet, having worked with NYC public servants for a number of years, I'm inclined to believe it. I've seen that type all too often. Petty tyrants with little supervision in a district that nobody really cares to supervise. The way she did herself up as belle of the ball? She saw herself as queen of her fiefdom, and this was her last little ceremony before her subjects left her dominion. Of course they had to dress up and dance for her at their own expense. Or some crazy shiat like that.

The follow-up stories should be interesting on this one at least.

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.

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.

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.

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.

spelletrader: jayphat: No. But if the principal went dressed in baggy pants, looking like he was about to head to the club. you can bet your ass there would be just as much outrage.

So she is dressed in very nice clothing, expensive clothing, and a man would have to down dress in baggy ass jeans to draw equal outrage? Come on. And what is "looking like they are about to head to the club" even farking mean? It's judgmental, dog whistle bullshiat.


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? And this woman is clearly dressed for level 3, which is not anywhere near what a manager should be dressed like, much less one that is teaching farking children.

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.

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?

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.

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.

"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."

Educational issues aside, what does that have to do with anything?  Her skirt is short, but not that short, and most principals have enough money for nice things.  That's a 6 figure salary.  See, when people complain about sensationalistic or biased reporting, this is what we are talking about.

Now, maybe she is lousy at her job.  Showing up late for work every day is certainly a problem.  The prom thing is certainly a sign of a problem (and if that had been tied to her fur coat, it might have made sense).

My mother worked for the NYDOE for years.  She was responsible for working with troubled schools.  NYC wasn't here area, but she used to (well still occasionally does) tell horror stories about the people monitoring what was going on downstate.  It sounded like things were screwed up a lot farther up the food chain than just the principals.

Its rare to find a retiring Principal that does not have over a million dollars saved up, plus their six-figure pension and other assets (often multiple homes).

The vast, vast majority (90%) of NYC principals make between $100K and $150K. How would they afford multiple homes?


$100k, plus a partners salary (lets say $75k, so a middle manager somewhere or a cop). Its quite easy to swing two houses on that. $500k house in Long Island, and a $200k vacation home in say, the Poconos, or in the Carolinas? very doable.

2014-01-15 12:40:40 AM
As someone who works and has family in the public school system in another big East coast city, let me tell you that this story isn't the least bit unusual. I see and hear things like this all the time, it just rarely makes the news because the schools don't want a scandal.

I know of several people in the school system (and that's just a few; I'm sure that there are many, many more that I don't know about!) who come and go as they please and otherwise exploit the system for their own benefit.  The best ones are the folks who have had or currently have lawsuits pending against the school system because they are considered "immune" to any type of discipline until the case is resolved. I have seen women take three- week long vacations during the start of the school year, work for only a couple hours a day, or in one case, take a three-month leave of absence without notifying anyone!  One woman had an affair with a superintendent several years ago and is still considered untouchable. Another woman sold the school system a ridiculously expensive curriculum (which she developed during the time that she was supposed to be working for the school district, but that's another story) that they only bought because she worked for the man running the distinct. The curriculum was dumped two years later, but it cost millions to the taxpayers. Of course, that will never make the news, and no one even knows about outside the schools.  The teachers all know, but who would listen to them? No one wants to lose their job, so no one says anything.

The funny thing is, most people think public schools are generally decent, but that's rarely the case. Most schools are understaffed, in need of repair and materials, and teachers barely get a say in what they teach. The district hands them the curriculum (usually in the first week of school, without telling anyone) and expects them to teach it verbatim. Never mind that none of the students have workbooks or regular books, and the school can't let the students take books home because most of them would disappear in the first week of school.  Computers don't work, but the schools say they want the students to all have tablets within two years! I can't imagine what that will cost, but the sad truth is that many students would probably sell or break the tablets pretty quickly.

The things I see and hear would shock most of you, and I wish that there was a way to get these stories out, but everyone is afraid for their job. No one wants to be blacklisted from teaching for spilling the beans, and too many people profit from the system the way it is to want things changed.  A lot of teachers try to change things from within, but it is always an uphill battle. They are fighting the system, and the system has been in place for a long time. My advice is for parents to be as involved as possible in their child's school, because that is the one area where change could actually begin. It is so rare nowadays to see parents in the classroom, and if they were then they would see and hopefully speak out against what is going on.  Unfortunately, many parents view school as daycare, and don't come to parents' nights or conferences, so it's hard to get people to see what's happening with the administration. Anyway, sorry for the long and depressing post, but I really had to comment on this story.

my lip balm addiction: robohobo: Point02GPA: Leaving her personality misunderstandings aside, she rocks big time in fur.

/I'd hit it

Her knees definitely aren't sharp. More like each is a bag containing a large softball sized rock. You need higher standards, man. She's a beast.

A beast who dresses like a hooker for her job as a principal. Zero professionalism shown. Fire her on the spot IMO. Would YOU want your children being taught in a school run by that? I wouldn't.
