We here at SBSB are admitted Trekkies. We have also had a chill go down our collective spines when either Captain Kirk or Captain Picard always take the ultimate responsibility for the actions and decisions of not only their crews, but the second in commands as well.
And that is how it should always be. Just like the Skipper and Gilligan, Ricochet Rabbit and Droop-Along, Sheriff Taylor and Deputy Fife, Gomer and Goober, the Captain and Tennille, Steve Douglas and Uncle Charlie, Colonel Blake and Major Burns, Han Solo and Chewbacca, etc... Get the point?
So should the same theory not be in place in our schools?
Yesterday, was like any other day at PS 154. Out of control as usual. A student that has the run of the school, who we have mentioned under one pseudonym or another on these pages, but for today we will address as Yankel Teitelbaum, has been given carte blanche to leave his classroom whenever he wishes to, provided he spends that time not with a pedagogue, but rather a non DOE payroll, service provider, vendor type.
So coming back from lunch and the outside yard young Yankel declared that he needs a break from the hum drum rigors of learning. Off he went to the non DOE payroll service provider, vendor type, but one should only wonder if that is where he truly goes.
Seemingly, he never went there. Instead he loitered around the
hallways bullying and being a general nuisance until he wondered to
Freida Weintraub's class. For those who forget, Freida was mentioned here the other day.
Yankel was standing in the doorway giving the business to another students when somehow, someway, he and Freida caught each others eyes. Soon, Yankel was cracking on Freida's kinfolk and the like when suddenly, like one of the Hanson Brothers jumping over the boards from the team bench at a Charlestown Chiefs game going after Olgethorpe, Freida went to town on Yankel and it took two "linesmen" to hold her down, and this after punching out the window of the classroom door.
Sadly, the ostriches all have their heads buried at 154. Why is a non-pedagogue charged with the safety and well being a student? Why is this student allowed at will to dictate when he shall be in class? This is not an isolated incident. This has been going on for years. Would such behavior be tolerated in Green Acres Elementary School in Scarsdale? Of course not! And please, do not give me the "oh these kids have it tough, you have no idea what they go through." Bullocks! Beliefs like that are patronizing to the community and racist. These students have the right to have the same education and the same expectations of students in Westchester or Long Island.
Again, we call on an independent third party inquiry by the Swiss School Administration Investigative Service of Zurich to lead an investigation. We also call for the Institut für schweren psychiatrischen Erkrankungen, or in English, Institute of Severe Psychiatric Disorders to check for insanity. For a true sign of insanity is if you keep on fucking up the same way time after time and each time expecting a different result, well then you must be insane.
We also look towards the heavens to Tatooine and call upon Obi-Wan Kenobi. He is our only hope.
