Cover Up at IS 162 in the Bronx? Let's Ask District 7 Superintendent Yolanda Torres
On June 10, 2013, I wrote a post, "Where is the Bronx District Attorney When You Need Him?" I left a lot of details out, names, the school, the district, etc... Today, I am rewriting/rerunning that post but not holding anything back. Names, school, everything.
These three miscreants get away with such behavior while Christine Rubino, Francesco Portelos, myself and 8 other colleagues and the rest of the teachers in NYC are crapped on. Accountability from Tweed is bullshit. It means nothing. It is just watching out for yourself, your cronies, and those that live in the rectums of administrators.
Remember, this shit can't be made up!
This happened over the course of several years in District 7 in the Bronx. The school is IS 162.
Yolanda Torres is the superintendent, the principal is Marilyn Manzolillo and the AP is Greg Papadopoulos.
But everything is true. Everything happened. Everything was covered up.
Greg Papadopoulos put in "long hours" at home doing the scheduling. I mean really really long hours.
There were no time cards to be punched nor signed. Marilyn Manzolillo principal of IS 162 did not have enough money to pay per session so the pay was in comp time.
There was shit loads of comp time involved. Remember, all unverified. No time cards.
The assistant administrator took vacations with this comp time. All during instructional time, for weeks at a time.
Countries and cities of Europe were visited all while the students of IS 162 were busy as Papadopoulos was off gallivanting around.
Meanwhile the school is going into the crapper.
Somehow the Commissioner of Special Investigations office got wind of this. Praise be to God! We all know how CSI can be when going after those who misrepresent time taken off and defrauding the DOE claiming they worked while in reality they did not.
Just ask Matthew Kaye aka Matt Striker or Lynn Stewart's daughter. We know how seriously SCI takes this stuff.
This is where that Yolanda Torres comes in.
SCI, the bastion of all keeping all that is correct in the NYC DOE drops the ball!!!!!!
There was proof up the ying yang!!
They kick it back to Yolanda Torres for the discipline phase.
The Marilyn Manzolillo is buds with the superintendent. She must be, why else would we not hear of this, but we heard of Liza Cruz Diaz at PS 31 in District 7. Ms Diaz stole money. Stealing time is the same as stealing money.
Papadopoulos gets just a letter in the file!
Imagine if a teacher had done this??? OH baby!
Of course Papadopoulos could not have done this without being enabled by Manzolillo.
I might not be a lawyer, but dang, if this doesn't seem like fraud, larceny, conspiracy, and a few other felonies, then I mock my SUNY education.
Why hasn't Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson been notified of this?
But he is a dolt. How about US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara?
It has been said, and by very reliable sources, that Papadopoulos had much more than a professional relationship with Manzolillo. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Know what I mean? Know what I mean?
So this happens and teachers all across the city, and the country are getting crapped on.
Why? Where is the logic behind this.
It is not us running the schools. We just work there.
Maybe it is time to go after the schmucks in charge?
These 3 crap all over Stu Schmelz, yet they continue to game the system.
Yeah, this shit can't be made up!!!
Update 7/22/13 @ 6:12 PM: The Crack Team as learned that Marilyn Manzolillo is no longer the principal of IS 162. The new IA principal is Angel Fani.
