    Only got 9 views in the Education board so i'll try here.

    My Fiance (25) and my best friend (27, male) are teachers in the Philadelphia Public School System and everything Gem said, I hear everynight when my fiance comes home. To add to what Gem said, throw in:

    - The Union strictly jumping in on working only till 3:09.
    - Teachers being drug from their classroom by Police without notification and taken to the precinct for questioning during school hours for students being injured during fights that werent the teachers fault. (happened to my friend)
    - Administration not suspending students because of the quota of absenteeism needing to be met.
    -Administration not punishing students that threaten to kill the teacher, slash the teachers tires, destroy the teachers other possessions.
    - The Union being a toothless tiger when a student threatens to kill the teacher, slash the teachers tires or destroy the teachers other possessions.
    - Affirmative Action

    Hows this for a story. The reason my fiance got a job in philly in February was because a Black Female teacher took 6 months sebaticle leave. This teacher didnt do any teaching or discipline for the 5 months she was there. She let the kids do whatever they wanted everyday she was there. The secratary and prep teachers never wanted to deal with that room because the kids were so bad. So my fiance came into one of the worst classrooms in the school. She managed to now make it through 4 months of hell. She would come home some nights crying her eyes out because of the day she had been through. She found out that most of this 6th grade class was 13 and 14 years old and there was one 15 year old to go with the 10 or so 11-12 year olds (you know normal 6th grade age). Any time a fight occurred, the principal and disciplinarian's (both black females) solution was to tell the kids, "Don't do that again." Then they'd send them back to class. Obviously it did jackshit. With all that said, she managed to get them into a manageable status. Prep teachers said that they noticed a difference even though they are still bad. Other teachers commented on how much theyve improved behavior-wise.

    So now after she suffered through these 4 months of hell, whats her reward? An offer to stay at the school? No! why? Because shes white. In fact, this school has too many white teachers. 5 other white teachers are being removed from their positions this year in what is called a "forced transfer." OF these 5 teachers only 1 was a new teacher, same as my fiance. The other 4 had at least 2 to 7 years of experience at that school. The same thing happened to my friend since he is also white at a different school. How did they notify them? A letter left in their mailbox saying "You are being reallocated for next year." The School Districts Reason? They feel that the students will learn better with a more "racially balanced" atmosphere than the current one. Oh by the way, the Black Female teacher that my fiance replaced, that only has 4 years experience (less than most of the white teachers being removed), that took 6 months sebaticle leave this year, that apparently took 6 months sick leave last year, that took 6 months family leave the year before that and everytime was retained, and has already unnoficially informed certain teachers that she intends to take 6 months more of whatever the hell else she can think up leave this coming school year, she is being allowed to retain her job making over $50,000/yr. Why? Shes black and they need to fill the quota. Even though she wont be there the whole year, she suits their purposes.

    Oh yea, i have full faith in liberals running the public school system now that ive seen what goes on through my friend and my fiance.

    Here's an NBC10 news report on the BS teachers face daily.

    Yep, institutional racism is alive and well, and it's committed on a daily basis by the liberals in the name of 'diversity,' a euphamism for putting down whites and elevating blacks out of, yet again, a twisted sense of fairness.

    The Philadelphia school system is a joke. I had a friend who worked down there as a sub and she would come back with the craziest stories because things are that bad.

    And to think, when Governor Rendell first ran four years ago he promised to do to all the schools in Pennsylvania what he did in Philly. That was one of the scariest campaign promises ive ever heard. and he will probably fulfill it too if he isnt voted out this year.

    I have a relative who teaches in the Philly public schools. From what he tells me, the inmates are definitely running the asylum.

    I believe your story, insein. Basically what's going on here is that blacks and Hispanics are very, very different people from whites. They just do not behave in the same way, period. But I realize that if you say this out loud, you're marked as a terrorist.

    Here's a story you'll enjoy/cringe at, along your fiance's lines:

    Idealistic young man tries jumping in to teach the lil' blackies, and it's craziness all around.

    I've heard they've begun opening some charter schools in Philly. However, I haven't heard anything recently. How are they coming?

    Somewhat. At least there if you have bad behavior they kick you out of school.

    Amazing. If a government official showed up at your doorstop demanding your car, you'd be well within your rights to tell him to fuck off. But demand your children for a day (and your tax dollars), and everyone's okay with it. If every penny of government spending on schools like this were abolished, no one would notice, and the kids wouldn't grow up any more ignorant than they are already.

    If we insist on having this public crapola, I can tell you how to fix it though.

    1) Expulsions. Send half the school home for good if need be.
    2) Paddlings. Vicious, butt-blistering, cringe-inducing paddlings. In front of their peers, not out in the hallway. Think you're tough? Think you're impressing your friends? You won't think so when you've got tears streaming down your face because of that big hickory board lifting your ass off the ground.
    3) Cut every single penny of free government aid--AFDC, free housing, everything. Suddenly the parents of these hooligans will understand the importance of a good education.
    4) No more anti-drug laws. Smuggling/dealing will not be profitable any more, and you will have to get a real job.

    Basically I see all this as interrelated symptoms of government interference. It's like we've made our inner cities into Indian reservations, only for blacks. Time to cut the umbilical cord.

    Actually, the main problem is competition. The school gets tax money whether the kids are there or not, so there's no reason to do a good job. If we allowed parents to pick the schools and made sure that even a portion of the money went with the kids when they left, you'd see schools improve dramatically.
