Breaking News: David Prouty students are going balls to the wall again and have walked out of the building in protest.
— Dave (@davidprooo) April 14, 2016
All week students and teachers have been coming to school early to stand on the side of Route 9 and protest the fact that Principal Tracy Jordan, who was FIRED last year as principal of Jacob Hiatt Magnet Elementary, unjustly suspended their math teacher Chuck Fahey without pay for 30 days. Now it has been announced that they will be “investigating” another beloved teacher, Becky Busierre, because THEY stole the money she raised in a fundraiser and don’t wanna pay the outstanding balance they owe the fundraising company.
Hey hippies, take notes. This is who you protest without making everyone hate you. These kids are getting their message across loud and clear without chaining themselves to barrels on the highway or blockading Kelley Square. If Sonya Conner, Kevin Ksen, Julius Jones, RBG, and the rest of the prize patrol had HALF the class of these students, then people might actually listen to them.
Think about that for a second. These kids just lost their math teacher for 30 days. A lot of kids would’ve been jumping for joy because they get a substitute teacher for almost the rest of the year. Everyone knows that substitute teachers mean one thing – anarchy!! Not these kids though. These kids actually wanna learn math, and they’re protesting because that right has been taken away from them.
Seriously though, how embarrassing is this? How can Tracy Crowe, Tracy Jordan, and Kevin Hayes continue to show their faces in public? How can they NOT resign? This is humiliating. Normal school districts don’t have student walkouts. Twice!! Normal schools don’t have kids holding signs on Main Street every morning. If you ever reach the point where a school district that you are in charge of is having protests like this, it means you have failed to do your job as an administrator. The details or reasons behind it don’t matter. Your primary job is to make sure situations like this don’t happen. The job isn’t about you, it’s about the kids. Do the right thing and resign before the people toss you out on your ass.
All I gotta say to these kids is, don’t stop doing what you’re doing. You are in the right and they are in the wrong. What you are protesting for is a just cause. The community and Turtleboy are behind you 165%. You do what you gotta do, but if I were you I’d come up with a list of demands. You don’t take the MCAS test this year unless Tracy Crowe and Tracy Jordan both resign. You have a right to be prepared for that test, and those two skags have taken that right away from you. How can you take a test you are not prepared for? They will have no choice but to give in if you stay united. You control this school. It belongs to you and your parents, not to these adults who hate children.
