A good friend, from a school in Brooklyn, is totally fed up with the crap she sees going on. She sent me a long e-mail, venting her frustrations. I can't post most of it, but I decided to share her last few lines. These say it all:
WE ARE TURNING OUT ILLITERATE KIDS......KIDS THAT DON'T UNDERSTAND RULES AND REGULATIONS.....KIDS THAT THINK THE WORLD WILL JUST "DO IT FOR THEM"....
I am disgusted and really upset with the DOE...when did this all happen to education? What the fuck is going on??? It is not just our school, it is all over the city!! We are just making Bloomberg's graduation numbers go up and throwing away the kids!!!
Thanks for letting me vent!
