Maureen Binienda was my principal at South High School, and the current superintendent of the Worcester Public Schools. South is the most diverse high school in the city, and you’re greeted with flags from all over the world the moment you walk in the door. Mrs. Binienda could’ve worked at any school she wanted to, but she chose Worcester South because she has a passion for serving underprivileged communities. She has done God’s work there, and has dedicated her life to helping Worcester kids of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Naturally then the mob is coming after her.
This is a press release from the unelected, politically motivated group known as the Worcester Interfaith:
Worcester’s demographics and performance indicators tell a compelling story of a school district that leaves a majority of its students – students of color – in the dust of their counterparts: failing to meet their Legal Equal Educational Opportunities. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) reports that in 2017-2018, Worcester’s students were predominantly Latino (42.9%). English learners (ELs) comprised a third (32.8%) of our student population. Our ELs have the highest dropout rate at 5%, followed by Latino students, of whom 3.4% dropped out of school. Latino students have the highest chronic absenteeism (19.9%) and disciplinary exclusion (11.5%) rates. These data, among others, highlight the inevitable conclusion that our public schools are failing our students of color particularly our Latino students.
They are blaming the superintendent for the high chronic absenteeism rate of Latino students. This isn’t The Onion, it’s an actual press release that is being taken seriously. It’s Mrs. Binienda’s fault that kids don’t come to school. Evidently she is responsible when parents don’t put their kids on the bus in the morning.
This is another quote from the press release: Hold Accountable people who have perpetuated our failures.
OUR failures. They literally said that they want other people to be held responsible for their shortcomings. This sums up entitlement culture better than any quote I’ve ever read. The manifesto is also signed by Dan Margolis’ “Greater Worcester Our Revolution,” despite the fact that Margolis is an open and admitted communist.
Worcester Interfaith is run by City Councillor Sarai Rivera’s husband “Reverend” Jose Encarnacion.
They are a non-profit that pays their leaders a salary from grants that they receive for spewing the right buzzwords and alleging to be a group that cares about helping children and minorities. In reality they do nothing except force their radical politics on others, and try to get quality educators like Mrs. Binienda fired.
In 2010 Encarnacion wrote a threatening email to City Councillor Konnie Lukes for not supporting a resolution to boycott the state of Arizona because they were enforcing existing immigration laws. Just like with Mrs. Binienda, he vowed to have her replaced as well if she didn’t give into his demands.
I will make sure that the dispicable deafning tone of your NO! along with the NO’s of all the other councilors continues to ring loud and clear in my ears awakening in me a determined passion to make sure that come next term your NO’s or Yes’s for that matter will no longer be relevant. So just in case I didn’t make my self clear enough, I intend to use all the leadership influence bestowed upon me to awaken the same desire and passion among our community to ensure that you do not get re-elected.
So this is par for the course for him.
Meanwhile, what has he or his group done to help students of color in Worcester? If he’s concerned about absenteeism rates of Latino students then perhaps he should rent a van and drive kids to school who are missing too many days. I’ve worked in the Worcester Public Schools, and had an 11 year teaching career that included Shepherd Hill. The biggest difference between the two schools was absentee rates. Kids at Shepherd Hill don’t miss school for long periods of time, whereas many students in Worcester miss upwards of 50 days of school a year. They often come from homes where education is not valued, and thus missing school just isn’t a big deal. This isn’t Mrs. Binienda’s fault; it’s the parent’s fault.
But in today’s society we can’t ever hold people accountable for their behavior. We have to blame racism, or someone else. In this case Encarnacion is blaming both.
His group has done nothing to help students of color, but Mrs. Binienda has. Years ago a Shrewsbury student died tragically and his parents formed a charity called Andy’s Attic in his honor. As principal of South High Mrs. Binienda established South High as headquarters for Andy’s Attic, which warehouses donated clothing and gives them to underprivileged kids, many of who are students of color.
While Encarnacion virtue signals about racism so that he can continue to collect a salary from his political non-profit, Mrs. Binienda was being praised by the far left Huffington Post for the job she has done working with Worcester students:
She’s literally changing the world by positively impacting the lives of thousands of students (many of them homeless) each year. Her name is Maureen Binienda and she’s the principal of South High Community School in Worcester, MA where she’s been for 38 years.
South High Community School is a high school for 1200 inner city teenagers in Worcester. It’s no ordinary school in that approximately 188 of the students are homeless and as many as 668 of the kids speak English as a second language. As Principal Binienda pointed out during my recent tour of the school, “These kids are amazing. All of them will be successful. However, many of our kids have additional challenges. They are dealing with problems like how they are going to get food for dinner, where they are going to sleep, and whether they will have clothing to wear to school tomorrow.” Binienda and her staff have made it their mission in life to be a guiding star in the lives of their students, by helping them solve the challenges they face, so that they can focus on education. As Binienda sees it, the only way out of poverty is education, and this includes solving the problems of food, shelter, clothing and healthcare.
I recently took a tour of South High Community School with Maureen, and let’s just say that there were resources at this school that I’ve never personally witnessed in a high school. To begin with, South High houses a full medical clinic supported by Family Health Center. Maureen said that many of the kids wouldn’t get to have medical treatment at all if it were not for having an affiliated clinic at the school. Here, students can receive full physicals and regular medical care for sicknesses like flu and ear infections.
Adjacent to the clinic there is a student food pantry. Maureen says that with over 188 homeless students, there are kids that won’t have the opportunity to eat outside of the walls of the school without the help of their food pantry. She says that they have created a backpack program so that kids who need food can come to the pantry early in the morning to fill a back pack full of foods like pancake mixes, pasta, and canned goods. They leave the filled back pack in the pantry so that they can come back later that day to pick it up. They use backpacks rather than grocery bags so that kids that use this service can do so discreetly without letting others know their situation. The food pantry also provides birthday bags, a suggestion from a pharmacy volunteer, so those who are celebrating a birthday can come in and get a bag filled with cake mix, candles, frosting, party plates and the like. If you are wondering where all the food comes from to fill the pantry each week, well that too has everything to do with caring partners. Maureen is a volunteer usher at The Hanover Theater in Worcester. There are 290 ushers at the theater that each week bring food to the theater, which is posted on the usher website. The food pantry also receives funding from Fallon Health, UNUM, and community individuals.
There’s a lot more in that Huffington Post article if you want to see all the good she’s done in her career while Jose Encarnacion holds meaningless press conferences condemning “hate speech” from this blog.
I saw her passion and love for underprivileged kids when I was a student at South. I barely had any interactions with her because I was a solid B student who was going in the right direction. I came from a two parent home, I didn’t miss school, and I didn’t need her help or guidance. Whenever I saw her or walked by her office she was always talking to a kid who was struggling in school, or came from a home without much parental support. She knew that these kids needed her more than I did. She has helped countless students graduate from high school, and many of them now give back to the community by teaching at South.
But yet these unelected people have influence. Cowardly Mayor Joe Petty has given into their demands:
“I want to thank the leaders of the Latino community for bringing forward their concerns with the Worcester Public Schools and I view this as a teachable moment for us all,” Petty said. ” Simply put, we can do better.”
Today, Petty went further, opting not to wait until the School Committee meeting in laying out a plan to address the issues raised by the Coalition. The mayor called for:
- The School department to provide the necessary, student-sensitive data needed to do a thorough review of the suspension rates in our Worcester Public Schools.
- Hiring a diversity and equal opportunity officer as the city manager and city council has done on the municipal side of government.
- Worcester State University to re-engage with our school department in order to refresh and update the 2014 report, “Suspension in Worcester: A Continuing Conversation.”
- Incorporate training practices focused on understanding cultural differences, unconscious bias and trauma informed care.
In other words, he’s creating a position out of thin air for a “chief diversity officer,” who will make sure that kids who break the rules are not suspended because it looks bad on a chart. This is the racism-industrial complex in action. Step 1 – create the illusion of widespread racism. Step 2 – demand the creation of a paid position to combat the alleged racism. Step 3 – profit.
And that’s ultimately what this comes down to – these people blame the superintendent, racist teachers, and a police presence in schools for high suspension rates of Latino students. They looked at statistics involving suspension rates and determined that correlation implies causation, which it does not. They can’t provide a single example of a black or brown student getting suspended for an offense that a white student did not.
Here’s an idea – maybe, just maybe, Latino students are being disciplined at a higher rate because they break the rules at a higher rate. Again, I attended the WPS. I saw first hand how out of control some students are, and yes, many of them were Latino. This doesn’t mean all Latino students are bad, in fact most Latino students were there to learn. But the students who were disrupting and preventing other students (many of who are also Latino) from leaning had to be disciplined. This is common sense.
What these people want are out of control schools where no one is suspended. They want police out of schools despite the fact that rates of violence have gone done significantly since cops were put in schools. There’s a detail cop at every City Council meeting, where 50 people attend, so certainly there should be one at a school with over 1,200 students. They want Binienda gone so that their handpicked, woke superintendent can be put in. And the gutless Mayor seems inclined to cowtow to them instead of going to bat for the teachers and superintendent.
These people cannot get over the fact that this qualified woman got the job three years ago:
They were furious when Worcester didn’t waste thousands of dollars on a national search to bring an outsider with no connection to Worcester kids in. They can’t get over it, and they’ve dedicated the last 3 years to make sure that she does not keep this position.
The Telegram and Gazette has been all over her too, as well known racist Clive McFarlane simply cannot accept the fact that a white woman is leading the schools. That’s why they banned me from commenting on their Facebook page – because they don’t want dissent. They want to control the narrative. They want to use their platform to make uninformed folks think that the superintendent is a racist.
The School Committee needs to take a stand on this. We know that Dante Comparetto, who is the mouthpiece for these activists, wants her gone. But thus far people like Molly McCullough have been very quiet. We messaged her yesterday for comment and she gave us this nonsense:
Disappointing to say the least. Those who oppose her aren’t afraid to speak out. It would be nice to have politicians who weren’t afraid of the mob.
If you had Mrs. Binienda as a principal, or had any interaction with her (particularly if you are a person of color who wants to combat this narrative), feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Great to see that many of the folks that comment are “woke” and know all these problems are not from WASPs.
Crappy parents make crappy kids
Her vagina made a baby all by itself. It’s true just ask her.
It’s pretty much gotten to the point where you actually have a dedicated person doing a phenomenal job and all their hard work is cast aside by these race baiting jagoffs. Why would any sane person even contemplate taking on a position like that any more? 38 years and this is the thanks she gets? Disgusting. They will hire some unqualified race baiting, liberal honk and the problems will increase ten fold.
Was driving by wiers beach arcade in laconia last week. Out front on the large electric neon sign asked the question, “Who is John Galt?” Simple question, easy answer. The “John Galt” of today is the middle class white american man and woman who works 2+ jobs to be able to survive and provide for their family. Most realize this in a sense however give in to the mindset that this is how it should be, because our leaders (politicians) have failed us. The solution is a serious white flight from metro urban areas and to lose that socialist mind view. Let these metro urban areas become majority minority and run themselves into the ground. Grab your popcorn, it will be hilarious. Just stay the fuck out of New Hampshire. Go to Maine or Vermont if you need to leave the state or better move to california.
Sad to say, but NH is already on the decline.
Have you seen Manchester?
They site the percentage of the minority school student, but I’m curious what the percentage of minority property owners is? And by minority I mean the lite brown loud as fucks.
This is the perfect excuse for the shitty Latino parents who care more about everything else but education. “See junior….I knew it wasn’t yo fault you be failin’ most a ya classes. It’s the muthafuckin’ supaintended’s fault….. bitch’s a racist!” Nevermind that junior’s out gangbangin’ and misses half the fucking school year.
So according to the WPS 2017-2018 stats, 33% of ALL students don’t even speak English (ELL). Latinos make up 43% of students and have the highest truancy rate and disciplinary rate, yet it’s somehow the Superintendents and the schools fault none of these kids speak English or show up for school. Um ok, seems legit. What about the god damm parents role in making sure these kids know this country’s language and actually go to school.
Also, if the majority of offenders that require disciplinary action are Black/Hispanic then yeah, they’re going to have the highest numbers representing all groups. Imagine that! Numbers and statistics and facts don’t lie. A big FU to all of these SJW retards that do nothing but assign blame to the wrong people, (WPS Superintendent and the WPS schools and teachers).
Just hire a Chief Diversity Officer at $200,000 a year of taxpayer money I’m sure that will fix everything, sure, sure it will.
Like The SAT and all related tests are totally Racist and if we dont allow the illegals to be promoted like the world will end in 12 years. This is not who we are right. I mean come on like totally
These people have been ticked off since Marco Rodrigues lost to Binienda. They were further enraged when the Latinex party’s favorite family member, Ms. Perez, failed as a school principal. There was no chance they would not try to enact some revenge on Maureen because of these things. Miss Molly is a disgrace in her failure to stand with the superintendent, whom she selected, in this concocted situation. She should know better.
Now Marco works in a 99% white district!
This is what you get when you give a fuck. Unending harassment and the gleeful torment from third world mental defectives.
Pro Tip – don’t offer any help, charity or compassion to anyone with a hyphenated ethnicity. Pretend you really care, pretend you agree with them on every subject, but vote against anyone or anything that claims to “help” or “protect” them or their interests.
Fuck them .
You don’t need to go to school to get on welfare or get an AA/EEO no show job.
Like Spoken like a true affirmative acrion BU grad you know totally.
She can keep after and spank me a ruler anytime.
This dipshit was an assistant principal when I went to south (91-95). She comes from a long line of dipshits (Vuona, Harrington, etc.) The thing I remember most vividly is that she was a total cunt. Now my poor kid is in the WPS system and I have to listen to her robo-voicemails weekly. Not sure if it’s a speech impediment or her stupidity, maybe it’s a little of both, but she sounds just as stupid as I remember. It’s shameful that she’s paid the salary she is. 30+ years of phoning it in and getting paid to show up. Fuck this cunt, her colleagues, and you if you think she’s fit to be anything more than a lunch lady. BTW, I don’t know if she’s racist or not, I just know she’s a fucking asshole.
Yet, you still send your kids to WPS….
Whats hsppening at this school is the ssme absurd thinking snd actions that occurred in North Andover. You know the kind of non thinking that mandates alll crime or punishment be equal in all race groups. You get a black pupil who rapes 3 white students and you dont punish him because that goes againds the mon thinking that all races comit offenses equally. So what do you do, thats easy, you have the 3 white victims sign pledges that they will stay away from the blavk criminal rapist. See pronlemo solved. Except it isnt because it fosters more criminality amoung certain already criminal cultures.
It spirsls out of conttol and then it is a crime to speak the truth about whst s really going on.
Take Geeat Britain for instance. Muslim invaders are engaging in criminal behavior on a daily basis. If a white dare mention jt well thats considered a hate crime and intolerant and non multicultural. Its their culture and you dont understannd it therefore you are a racist for wanting to stpp crime. We get that here in America as Trump speaks sbout criminal invaders and is called racist for not accepting this loving new violent non American sub human culture.
What a pair, Sarai “CryMeA” Rivera and her loser-@$$ husband “Reverend” Jose Incarceration. So they want the district to hire a “diversity and equal opportunity officer.” FOR WHAT? The students already HAVE, if they’re in school, equal opportunity. Students aren’t empty vessels into which one pours knowledge; they need to use their own gray matter to absorb that knowledge, and their “parents” need to encourage that. It’s not an administrator’s job force-feed curriculum.
You got THIS right: “maybe, just maybe, Latino” (insert any other law-breaking hoodlum minority here) “students are being disciplined at a higher rate BECAUSE THEY BREAK THE RULES AT A HIGHER RATE.” Wadda ya say to THAT, Irreverant Jose Reincarnation?
We sre being invaded by third world criminaliens who are hell bent on turning America into a third world cesspool like the ones these animals came from.
They are tearing apart the very fabric of our country.
The invasion has begun and the invsders are starting a war on American values heritage and society. It is almost too late. Our country will soon be gone.
Please do not think this is limited to immigrants and minorities. Think Webduh and War-wack.
Our current state of stoodpidity (see what I did there?) sees no color. I feel like it’s due the third and fourth generation of welfare state. They just don’t know better.
But…. If they happen to be a minority, they can use the victim card. WE allowed this narrative to be taught for the last 10 or so years in our schools.
Here’s my biggest problem with all this Industrial Racism Complex stuff: How desperate and despondent does one need to be, if they don’t see that we are living in the safest and healthiest society since time began.
Plus, around these parts, if you’re one of the fortunate people that are not white… LUCKY YOU!!
As a member of certain minorities, THE SKY’S THE LIMIT, BABY!!
Some minorities move to the front of the line for job interviews. Some minorities get admitted to college with significantly lower SAT scores than their non-minority peers(sorry Asians, too smart, you’re fucked). Some minorities can use identity theft to claim government benefits and anonymity from law enforcement. Some minorities can get their crimes or sentences thrown out because they broke so many laws, now the federal government wants them to go back where they came from. Some minorities want people to pay for crimes which occurred almost 350 years ago! Some minorities want bathrooms or something like that. Some minorities want science to be about their feelings toward their own Authentic Self’s. Some minorities don’t bother learning English, or teaching it to their children. Other minorities want equal wages for what seems like less work and risk. Some minorities want to throw other minorities off of roof’s.
Man, I wish I was a minority.
Well, the RIGHT minority anyway.
Her name ends in a vowel. At one time, her “diversity” would have been a career limitation.
When you scream racism politicians knees start to buckle and the land sharks circle around ready to devour innocent victims. Kids cant read or write are afraid to go to thug or mug high school and the blame rests on the shoulders of the white teachers. Get ready for the reparations train.
Must be someone else’s fault that Latinos have high rates of criminality as well.
The inmates are running the asylum.
It’s racist and prejudice to NOT want to hire a person or fire a person primarily because of their race. What is good for me but not for the will very quickly backfire. My suggestion is to follow Charles Murray’s advice and avoid paying taxes in subtle ways at first then gradually expand to Italian and Greek levels.
The only way you will get them to come to school is to offer free weed or guns, Then they will show up in droves! The little shitheads have no supervision, they run wild and no one stops it. Why getvan education when the taxpayers supply you with whatever you need? Air Jordan’s, I phones, food, who needs schooling?
Gee I wonder if it has anything to do with kids having a cellphone in their face every waking second. I’m a manager of 25 people and I have to sit grown ass adults down and reprimand them daily for using their cellphones, I couldn’t even imagine what it’s like in a classroom. People do nothing but watch content that is violent and stupid and they desensitize themselves to the real world. Most grownups nowadays can’t function in society but yet they have their new Iphone in their face all day everyday. We are not going in the right direction as a society and eventually we will realize that the zombie apocalypse has already happened and all it took was a cellphone to make most people drooling idiots.
Prisons are filled with innocent people the same way racists see racism everywhere. All you have to do is ask them (just don’t ask for proof)……
I just don’t get it. God forbid the parents be held accountable for their children. It’s always someone elses fault, people love to play the victim card all the time but this isn’t the case here. No wonder why Trump can scream fake news all the time because it’s true, it’s right in front of us everyday and we let it happen.
Yes, we should all read and believe the Huffington Post, finally making some sense here!
Oh poor Randy. It’s very impolite to point out Hippocracy and double standards. We TBS Riders have all been anointed as Beautiful People. So while it might look like we’re egomaniac narcissists who are full of shit, rest assured that the Beautiful People all agree that we’re the Good One’s.
In fact, we call out anyone else who thinks they’re the Good One’s as Virtue Signalers. But not us Randy…. We’re really the Good One’s. Really…
White Woke liberals are voting for their own demise. They have magical thinking powers that enable them to think that violent uneducated groups are just like us and will embrace our way of life and sing cumbayah.
Meanwhile these same groups violate most laws refuse to assimilate and breed like rabbits all on the white tax payer dime.
The frog is in the boiling water and doesnt yet realize how hot it is. When the handouts can no longer continue due to massive economic instability, the parasites will attack. They will have the numbers and they will take anything thats not nailed down. America is being torn spart and there is not much time left before leeches chimp out
Unfortunately the purge is being perpetrated on White Male American citizens.constant destruction of values country and most especially white people. A constant erosion is taking place.
The Dems hate our country and they hate law abiding tax paying white men who built this country.
White genocide thru ethnic immigration is the goal. Soros will create ecconomic instability and social unrest. The blacks hispanics and muslims will start a civil war. When whites fight back their own government will turn on them. While this is happening Russia and China will step into further decimate and tear our country apart until America is no more. Afterwards the white dems will think they are safe because they are woke. These Dems will be beaten in the street , laughed at and murdered. The takeover will be complete. Our country will soon be gone. These violent brown animals are not assimilating and they are causing economic insecurity due to resources being spent on their worthless existence. Muslims wage ecconomic jigad on America too. When there are not enough hard working white tax payers left to support all the economic free loaders, societal unrest will begin. The average age of hispanics in America now is 18. The average age of whites is close to 50. Why do you think Dems want to disarm white America. The country will be gone soon.
I agree. Whites are not reproducing because they are too busy working 2 and 3 jobs to support their own children responsibly and support all the econonic third world freeloaders.
Responsible productive whites are having less children because they are paying high costs on everything so that these freeloaders can multiply. Did you see that fat slob welfare collecting Mexican women at the border complaining about the food that generous Americans provided her. BTW she stated that she intends to go on welfare once she is given her deserved entry into America.
Fuck those ingrates:
The country will never turn it’s back on us. If they tried rest assured the military and police wouldn’t allow it. I’m positive about that
You are living in the past. Most military and police will be non white. When AOC becomes president and she will base on demogrsphic stats alone. It will be too late. Your thinking is outdated and lazy. You think vecause it hasnt happened in our once civilized society that it wont happen in our soon to be ethnic uncivilized society. It is because of your lazy thinking and take no action stance that it WILL happen. You think dems care about America as they sell Americans down the drain day after day.
Worcester is a DUMP. Worcester’s Mayor is a clown puppet to all of the radical activists. Because they’re woke and they vote.
Absolutely pathetic what a shit hole this city has become in the past 20 years.
Move out while you can people, because it’s NEVER going to get better as long as you have puppets of the left leading your government, your chamber of commerce and your schools.
Worcester hasn’t had a good Mayor since Ray Mariano left office in 2001. Worcester was a REAL city until the Worc. Center Galleria (later the Common Outlets) mall was torn down. Now all the eggs are in the PawSox ball cap. Jobs have left the city due to the outrageous commercial prop. tax rate, while the Council raised the commercial tax a few cents while cutting the residential rate! It’s a total lie that Worcester taxpayer’s aren’t paying for Polar Park!
Over the past 20 years, everyone with means has left the city. Shrewsbury is the fastest-growing town in Central MA, and their schools need to be expanded! Doherty High used to be a top school due to it’s student body from the West Side, now it’s a dump. Burncoat used to be good too. Shrewsbury, Auburn, Westboro, Holden, etc. are towns full of former Worcester people.
Mrs. Binienda has done an excellent job as Supt. despite what she has to deal with. I don’t know of another district with a similar makeup that done better.
I thought Latinos were hard working and did the jobs that Americans dont want to do.
This is why I love TBS. Honest, truthful reporting of the issues that confront our society. Glad you had first hand knowledge of her and her work. Your blog is spot on. Keep up the good work and thank you for standing up to industrial racism complex. What a joke these turds are.
I’m not sure what is worse “The Rev. Runs and DMC (Dan Margolis Communists) or being praised by the Puffington Host?
