The Accountable Mayor


He spends a mini fortune to go on television and talk about how he improved NYC schools.

He talks about accountability, how he himself is accountable.

Wake up public! NYC schools are no better today than they were 10 years ago and in my opinion, they are worse. Kids are graduating without knowing basics. Things like credit recovery and boot camps are pushing them out without real educations. Incidents are going unreported. Hundreds of good teachers (ATRs) are sitting without classes. Others are sitting in the rubber room on trumped up charges with no substance made by principals who can barely wipe their own rear ends.

Bloomberg, you talk about accountability, but, how are you being held accountable? How about being accountable for the students in the community colleges who barely know reading, writing and arithmetic? How about being accountable for substandard trailer and split room classes? How about being accountable for school built to hold 1800 now holding 4500? What is your penalty for failing the children of NYC?

I'm pretty sure the penalty is a 100 million dollar campaign bill, which he will pay pretty much the way you and I pay our electric bill.

I wonder what set of this rant? Too many Bloomberg commercials?

Exactly--and the only television I watch is the news during dinner.
