I’ve always admired Janice Harvey. She’s well-written and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She’s also dedicated her life to teaching Worcester’s most at-risk population at North High School, despite the fact that she knows this will never make her rich or famous. She’ll go down as just another teacher, but she’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that she made a positive difference in the lives of kids who need a consistent adult in their life who cares about them and holds them accountable.

At the same time I always thought in my head, “It’s only a matter of time until they can her.” Because schools simply don’t want teachers like this. It’s a fact. Schools for the most part are run by gutless hackjobs who would choose a PC mob any day of the week over a teacher who is helping their students learn. It’s much easier to give into the Circlejerk and the “color blind is racist” crowd than it is to stand up to them. Because they won’t go away if you don’t give them what they want.

But what’s Janice Harvey gonna do if you fire her? She’s a member of one of the most USELESS unions that has ever existed, run by a complete HACKJOB Lenny Zelauskus, who donated $500 to Joe Petty’s campaign despite the fact that Petty backs up Lisa Dyer and Melinda Boone. What’s Janice gonna do if they fire her? Nothing. No one will make noise for her. She would need a REAL union to do that.

Then right on cue Worcester Magazine announced this tonight:

North High School teacher and Worcester Magazine columnist Janice Harvey will not be returning to the school next fall. She is being reassigned for “the betterment of the system,” according to a letter she said was signed by Human Resources Manager Stacey DeBoise Luster.

The letter states in part: “As you requested, and for the benefit of the system, you will be assigned to teach English” at the Creamer Center.

According to Harvey, she did not request the transfer and did not bid for the job. Harvey did say she inquired about the new Recovery High School being established in Worcester for children battling addiction, but there were no openings. After that, she said she would remain at North High.

“The hostile environment created by the email sent by Dyer makes the move a sensible one, since the city has chosen to extend her contract,” she said. “I hope to put the circus atmosphere behind me and simply teach.”

Do you see what they did here? They fired Janice Harvey because she mentioned Turtleboy Sports without condemning it. She never said she was a fan, she just didn’t say that we were racist. And that’s a big no-no with Luster, Boone, and Dyer. After all, without Turtleboy there is no Department of Justice in Worcester and Clive McFarlane doesn’t get half the page views. Since they can’t fire Turtleboy, they simply went after someone who had the audacity of mentioning Turtleboy and sharing a blog on Facebook. This is nothing less than organized bullying and professional bullies.

How stupid is Stacey Luster? Better question – how stupid does she think WE are to believe that firing a quality teacher is for the “betterment of the system?” She’s actually kind of right in a way. Sure, we lost a quality teacher who wanted to work at the most needy of our five high schools. But the “system” she speaks of is certainly better off. Stacey Luster makes $135,000 a year. Life for her will go on as normal. And Melinda Boone and Lisa Dyer have one less headache to worry about as they allow the Circlejerk to hijack our schools. Life is good for the establishment.

They can call it whatever they wanna call it. This is not a tranfer. This is a firing. The Gerald Creamer Center, Janice’s new school, is an alternative school for kids who are such a pain in the ass that they get put on a remote island on Granite Street. This is Janice’s punishment for having an opinion.

Janice Harvey was fired for her honest column in Worcester Magazine because Old Balls and crew didn’t like it. At the end of the day Stacy Luster and Melinda Boone had a choice – Janice Harvey or Lisa Dyer. One is well-liked with students and does her job well. The other is a hermit who never leaves her office and has never been a principal before she was handed the job by Melinda Boone two years ago.

Which of those two do you think better serves the children from the East Side of Worcester? Obviously Janice Harvey. Yet the school department CHOSE Dyer over Harvey because they don’t give a fuck about your kids. Don’t you get it? Don’t you see? They are more than willing to let your kids get hurt so long as the Circlejerk supports them. This is what we’ve come to. These outsiders are fucking over Worcester’s kids.

I hope Janice Harvey sues their faces off. Our sources tell us she has a lawsuit in the works and isn’t fucking around. First of all, what she wrote is not in the least bit offensive or controversial. But even if it was, who gives a shit? Because she’s a teacher she gave up her rights to speak freely on matters of public concern? Where in the Constitution does it say that the first amendment applies to everyone except for public school teachers? Meanwhile Saida Grundy, who openly said that white boys are a “problem population” and openly mocked a rape victim because she was white, is still employed as a professor at Boston University.

And I don’t blame Janice for not fighting this. Who would EVER want to work in an environment where your boss is the definition of incompetent? Lisa Dyer is a miserable human being. Her actions have shown that. She is the person the Circlejerk has used to do their dirty work. Rereading her email that she sent to the entire North High faculty is infuriating. The sole purpose of the email was to publicly humiliate one of her most respected and well-liked teachers for the unforgiveable crime of having an opinion and writing about.

Lisa Dyer is a racist. Plain and simple. She’s so obsessed with proving that she’s one of the good white folks that she’s completely gone off the deep end and has gone full racist. Because only a complete racist says something like this:

As long as North High is tasked with educating and empowering minority students, race will and must always be a factor.

Only a racist thinks that minority students need special empowerment in order to be educated. And what did Boone do about this unprofessional and racist email? She gave Dyer a pat on the back:

“Mrs. Dyer has demonstrated the ability and achieved results in addressing the safety issues along with the climate and culture shifts that are underway,”

Being “color-blind” doesn’t mean you don’t see color. It means you’re not obsessed with it like known RACIST Lisa Dyer is. Of course Janice Harvey noticed that some of her kids were black, while others were Asian, Hispanic, white, etc. What any REASONABLE person would take from her “color-blind” comment is that she judges her students based on their character and body of work in the classroom.

But the Circljerk and Lisa Dyer are not reasonable. They always find racism where there isn’t racism. Because at the end of the day, they are nothing more than racists. Worcester does indeed have a problem with racism. Sonya Conner, Joyce McNickles, RBG, Brenda Jenkins, Gordon Davis, Melinda Boone, Lisa Dyer, Kevin Ksen, Cara Berg-Powers, Clive McFarlane, Old Balls and many more are the racists amongst us.

Here’s my questions to teachers? What are you gonna do about this? Because Boone is literally bending you over every day and you’re just sitting there taking it. First they came for Janice Harvey, and you said nothing because it wasn’t you. Guess who’s up next? Not Lisa Dyer, that’s for sure. One of your own was just FIRED for expressing the fact that she’s proud to judge her students based on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.

Any teacher who isn’t with Janice is a scab. They should be socially ostracized. That’s what a real union would do. Some old school, banana in the tailpipe shit to anyone who crosses lines. Are you in a real union or a pretend one? Stop staying after school. Stop the extra help. Stop lesson planning. Stop correcting during your own time. Work exactly to the contract and nothing more. Because ultimately they think you won’t do shit, so they keep bending you over like this. Either you accept the fact that you are their bitch, or you do something about it.

Your union head has already given YOUR endorsement to Joe Petty without your consent. Despite the fact that YOU pay Lenny’s salary, he gave your dues to Joe Petty. How does that make you feel?

I’ve mentioned to many, many people before that teachers need to do something about this. Fight back. Say something. Refuse to work. Anything. And do you know what they tell me every time? Teachers won’t do shit because they’re afraid they’ll be fired. So now is your chance teachers. Are you the spineless scabs that people keep telling us you are, or do you actually have the minerals to stand up for youreself? Show me something.

As for you the reader, what can you do? Melinda Boone’s phone number is 508-799-3115. Her email is FLOOD her office tomorrow with phone calls and emails. Let her know how much this offends and upsets you. Because at the end of the day she is a carpetbagger from Virginia who fired a teacher who has been working at North High before she ever even knew what Worcester was.

And students, you’ve been great in all this, but those pins clearly aren’t working. I can’t tell you what to do, but I know that you’re all smart and you can come up with SOMETHING. Whatever it is, make sure it’s dignified and respectful. You are in the right and they are in the wrong. If you let the facts speak for themselves you can humiliate these people and force them to change.

At the last DOJ meeting there was a big hubaloo about not having enough teachers of color in the classroom. Perhaps that is what inspired Stacey Luster, a woman of color, to fire a white teacher at North High. How much you wanna bet they replace her with some PC garbage loser who buys into all this nonsense? According to everyone’s favorite racist vice principal at Doherty High School, Dr. Bernard Reese, the only way black kids can learn is from black teachers. So….problem solved according to his logic.

This is madness people. The inmates are running the asylum in Worcester and we’re letting it happen. Here’s a promise for you – if this doesn’t change in November then the blog ends. Because it’s pointless to have this thing if we’re not gonna make a difference. That means YOU need to get off your ass and register to vote if you haven’t done so already. And when you go to the polls on election day, vote for the Turtleboy Ticket. Right now I can guarantee we will be endorsing the following people for City Council:

  • Michael Gaffney (mayor too)
  • Konnie Lukes
  • Robert Sargent

And for School Committee:

  • Brian O’Connell
  • Diana Biancheria
  • Nick D’Andrea
  • Cotey Collins
  • Donna Colorio


We also know that under no circumstances will the following city councilors get our endorsement:

  • Joe Petty
  • Sarai Rivera

Neither will the following School Committee members and candidates:

  • Tracy Novick
  • Hilda Ramirez
  • Jack Foley
  • John Monfredo

But be warend incumbents – you need to pick a side. Now. I’m sick of waiting for fence sitters like Kate Toomey, Mo Bergman, Phil Palmieri, Tony Economou, Gary Rosen, and George Russell to sack up and pick a side. Show your REAL colors. It’s either the taxpayers of Worcester who stand by our police and teachers, or the rabble rousers from Sutton who wish to destroy our communities by getting rid of GREAT teachers like Janice Harvey. I expect EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU to condemn this. If you don’t, then you don’t get our endorsement. If you think you can survive without our endorsement, then roll the rice and see what happens in November.

    The “colorblind” issue is an interesting one, and I’d like to look at the opposing views.

    First lets ignore the fact that “colorblind” is a metaphor. No one is claiming that they actually don’t see color, it is just a phrase meaning that you treat everyone the same regardless of color/creed/etc. It’s how a lot of us were brought up. But say you really could not see the difference in people’s skin tones. The argument states that society inherently gives those who are not white a disadvantage because of years of racism, and that ignoring people’s skin color further perpetrates these disadvantages.

    To me this is flawed for a couple of reasons. Society isn’t an omnipotent being. It’s made up of people. People were all once babies, and babies aren’t concerned with the color of anyone’s skin. They grow up to be concerned with it because their parents were and taught them as such. To say it is racist to be “colorblind” is to imply that we have not evolved and have learned nothing from the racism of our ancestors. I’m a relatively young age, and my age group generally agrees that to be colorblind is racist, meaning they don’t think they can trust themselves to say, hire the best person for a job, because they’ve got stewing racism somewhere deep inside themselves. Secondly, I know people who are a different race than me who act just like me because of where they have grown up. How does that person’s skin color make any defining statements about him/her?

    Now scientists have shown that babies might actually just naturally be drawn more towards people as the same skin color as themselves. This being so, I don’t see how a white man walking up to a black man and going, “Science proves that I do not like you” is helpful to anyone.

    Because what the “colorblindness is racism” people seem to not get is that people like being treated as people. Everyone wants to be treated equally. I can’t see how anyone would want to be given an advantage in 2015 because their father was given a disadvantage in 1985. If making decisions based upon his/her race is so progressive, then why is there way more hate between people of different races than there ever was 10 years ago.

      This was no doubt one of, if not the most, intelligent response to this debate that I have read. I could not have done it myself if I tried and I am not young. Congratulations to you who picks a name out of one of my favorite comedians Rodney Dangerfield:

      With my wife I don’t get no respect. I made a toast on her birthday to ‘the best woman a man ever had.’ The waiter joined me.

      What a childhood I had, why, when I took my first step, my old man tripped me!

      Last week I told my psychiatrist, “I keep thinking about suicide.” He told me from now on I have to pay in advance.

      I tell ya when I was a kid, all I knew was rejection. My yo-yo, it never came back!

      When I was a kid I got no respect. The time I was kidnapped, and the kidnappers sent my parents a note they said, “We want five thousand dollars or you’ll see your kid again.”

        So but seriously I do not view being colorblind as racism. I view it exactly the opposite. It means to me America. A land derived of diverse backgrounds and of color and members of the most powerful nation on earth, America standing as one. Together while all lives matter. Do not hate. Embrace. Realize. Love. We got this. The rest of world is catching up. They have been for a long time and are still trying. When you call yourself an American that means you are a leader and a winner. And you all should feel proud of that.

    According to the rational of the circlejerk, people of color are so incapable of doing for themselves that they need a head start in life, and non-minorities need to be held back at the same time because they are capable and it’s unfair.

    All of this “logic” revolves around the color of the skin but they surmise that by blaming society for the ills that they are not being racist, when in fact they are the most racist, divisive and poisonous.

    • Jesús Montalvo
      June 8, 2015 at 8:24 am

      To clarify previous comment – they say non-minorities need to be held back because they are capable – due to an unfair racist societal advantage.

      They are the progressive equivalent of tin-foil hat wearing loons.

    Sounds like although she never formally requested the transfer, she was interested in it. Maybe read the article you are piggy-backing instead of just spouting crap next time.
