kericr: new_york_monty: It reads like the script of an unbelievable, melodramatic kids movie.

All it's missing are a couple of kid actors who humorously and harmlessly rebel against authority and Nick Cage to play a laffable, baffoonish villian and you've got the makings of a $100 million summer flop.

Excuse me, I have a script to write.

Yeah, I looked at this thing and I'm still not even sure it's not satire or some shiat...

Looks like Flip Wilson to me.

More of a cross between a 1970's pimp and Secretariat from "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," IMHO...

The more I see things like this, the more and more I am convinced that the larger the group of people in one place, the more their IQ goes down. Out here in the boonies, this woman would be fired and jailed.

She looks like she could be a canidate for the NYC schools rubber room where they send teachers to die. She should have dressed a tad more professional for her jobespecially if they were sending inspectors there. And she was ready to fight brought a lawyer.

spelletrader: Gulper Eel: But all four NYC papers (if you count Newsday) are motherfarking bulldogs on school waste and malfeasance. Heaven knows the city school system is the gift that keeps giving.

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.

Problem is she acts like she doesn't give a fark what you think.  So she's feeding into it with her own actions (or lack thereof).

Gulper Eel: Close2TheEdge: My guess is the guarded response by the Deputy Chancellor is a bit of a smokescreen. They now have to figure out some way to get rid of this crazy biatch without getting their asses sued off.

The NYC school system's rubber rooms never really went away. She'll be in one by September (if the story's not forgotten altogether by then).

Carmen Farina got her job by being one of the toughest principals in NY, firing something like 40% of her teachers the first year on the job.

She won't be forgetting.

I know nothing about this story outside of what was written in TFA. It does seem, however, that this is a hit piece. Her antics are straight out of a children's horror story based on a principal being childishly evil, leading me to suspect the authenticity of the story.

Bondith: Laobaojun: gibbon1: Lady Indica: Sociopaths?

Sociopaths aren't people.

Hey now, don't be hurtful.  We are people, too.
But as a spokesman for the American Federation of Sociopaths, we're disowning this b!tc#.  She's delusional.

Real sociopaths don't care what other people think about them because other people aren't really people and therefore their opinions don't matter.

/not any type of psychologist, but I mock them on Fark

Hey, it's a spectrum.  Like the opinions of a non-psychologist matter.  Besides, you're not a real person.

"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.

Moopy Mac: LemSkroob: kregh99: stirfrybry: robohobo: Employee of a public school. That is all.

look for the union label

 Uh, dumbass... she's management.  Not union.

The admins union (Principals and VPs) is one of the cushiest in the city.

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.

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.

/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.
