Lisa Dyer has been rehired on a one year contract as principal of Worcester North High School.

Yup. That just happened in real life. It’s official – there is literally NOTHING you can do to get fired by Melinda Boone. Except maybe share a Turtleboy Sports blog on Facebook. Besides that you’re good. After all, Jen Roy is still employed as a “Communications Specialist” despite messaging Turtleboy at 3 AM with bizarre, borderline psychotic imaginary lawsuits.

But the Lisa Dyer rehire proves that you can be as unprofessional as possible and still have the utmost job security so long as Melinda Boone is your boss. After all, this is the woman who famously sent her entire staff an email in which she called ELA teacher Janice Harvey a racist for suggesting that she is “color-blind.”

Then you will recall that she set up a sting operation on that same teacher as part of her prolonged campaign of harassment and bullying against a teacher who committed the unspeakable crime of having an opinion that doesn’t align with the Circlejerk. She brought in Phyllis Goldstein, a six-figure suit from Irving Street, to evaluate Janice Harvey on the morning after Janice was relocated back to her room after MCAS. Harvey was given a negative review because the class goals were not written on the board, because of course nothing is allowed to be written on the board during the MCAS testing. In other words, Lisa Dyer called in a ringer to set up one of her most respected teachers for failure.

Then she had one of her students investigated by the Department of Justice for wearing an “I Am Turtleboy” t-shirt.

Then the EAW conducted a survey of North High teachers, which revealed that they Lisa Dyer gives them no support, bullies them constantly, has created an unsafe atmosphere for teachers and students, has no leadership skills, and has given them no confidence that she should be hired back as principal.

But honestly, why wouldn’t she treat her staff and students like shit? She has nothing to fear. Literally nothing. North High wasn’t in the news a couple times this year. It was in the news every day. Bomb threats, four principals assaulted, students signing petitions, pizza party meetings that five parents showed up for. If you’re the principal and all those things happen under your watch, you’ve gotta go. Only a completely unqualified moron would think otherwise.

Melinda Boone is clearly that moron. She reads Turtleboy on the regular, so she knows damn well that Lisa Dyer pulled boner after boner from her throne on Harrington Way. But at the end of the day Lisa Dyer is HER girl. If she didn’t bring her back it would be admitting that as a superintendent she made a poor decision. And she doesn’t have the spine or guts to admit that she is capable of making a mistake.

It’s the same reason that Jen Roy is still taking $50,000 a year out of the school budget to message Turtleboy at 3 AM. Jen Roy was her hire. That position didn’t exist before Boone was around. Despite being the first Worcester Public Schools superintendent to employ TWO secretaries, she still felt the need to have a “PR” person to read her bullshit excuses for her. If Boone were to admit that she hired an incompetent Barbie Doll, she’d be admitting that she fucked up, and she just doesn’t have that in her.

But the unforgiveable part about this whole charade is that Lenny Zelauskas, the head of the EAW (Worcester teacher’s union) is not only doing jack shit about it – he’s supporting it financially. You may recall that when the Lisa Dyer email was first leaked by Turtleboy Enterprises, Lenny talked a big game. He demanded that Lisa Dyer be fired immediately. Here’s the quote:

“What she did was unacceptable, and is unacceptable in any field. I am calling for the immediate resignation or termination of Principal Lisa Dyer based on her unprofessional behavior.”

We had a feeling when he said that that he was just blowing smoke up their ass. And low and behold, we were right. Ya see, it’s easy to call for Lisa Dyer to resign. But we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. So the question became, what are you gonna do about it Lenny?

Well we got that answer the next week at the School Committee meeting when Lenny tried to bring it up again and was promptly told to shut the fuck up by Mayor Joe Petty:

“I’m not gonna go there. I think we have a good principal up there and I think we have some good teachers.”

Jumpin’ Joe Petty, who has never spent five minutes in a North High classroom, reached the conclusion that North High was in good hands with Lisa Dyer. So that was the end of that.

You know what a REAL union does when this happens? Something. Anything really. Hire a couple teamsters to have their bread truck break down in front of the school. Work only those hours that are specified in the contract. A real union takes action that forces management to give in to some of their demands. Or else, what’s the point of having a union?

But the problem with teachers is they’re too nice. They care about the kids and realize that a labor dispute would hurt the children the most. Petty, Dyer, and Boone know this and take advantage of it. They’ve sent the message loud and clear – teachers at North High can go fuck themselves and love every minute of it.

So what’s Lenny doing about it now? Giving money to Mayor Petty’s re-election campaign:


Ya got that? The same guy who not only refused to take any action against an unprofessional and unqualified principal, but also told the teacher’s union that he wouldn’t even consider their petition, got a donation from the head of the teacher’s union. This is why teachers can’t have nice things.

Meanwhile the only person on the City Council who has consistently stood up for teachers, students, and their safety time and time again, Mike Gaffney, gets nothing. As a matter of fact that EAW has already pledged their support to Petty’s re-election campaign, despite his primary opponent being Gaffney.

We’ve spoken with dozens of teachers who are irate about this. And why wouldn’t they be? They pay union dues, and where does that money go towards? A good chunk of it went to Deval Patrick’s re-election campaign in 2010. He thanked them by signing into law a mandatory finger-printing check that they will have to pay for in order to prove that they are not interstate child molesters.

Now this. Not a single teacher in Worcester got to vote for their choice of endorsement in November. Not one. Lenny gets to decide that on his own. Yet the teachers all paid dues. We wanted to give Lenny the benefit of the doubt about this, so we reached out to him several times. No response.

I see moronic internet republicans bitch and whine about the all mighty teachers unions all the time. It got Chris Christie and Scott Walker elected as governors. And every time I hear this rhetoric I wanna laugh. Teachers unions are the most useless labor organizations to ever exist. They serve no purpose except to get assholes elected so that teachers can continue to get fucked over.

So it looks like it’s up to us Turtleboy Nation. We want to see the highest voter in Worcester’s history in November. Lisa Dyer needs to go, but we don’t have the power to do that. Only Melinda Boone does. But we also don’t have the power to vote her out as carpetbagger superintendent, despite the fact that it’s in the best interest of our children.

But we DO have the power to get rid of the people who refuse to do the honorable thing and fire Melinda Boone. Tracy Novick and Hilda Ramirez finished 5-6 in the 2013 election. All we have to do is show up and vote for two new non-Boone supporters to take their place. Get rid of Petty too and boom – no more Boone. But you actually have to show up and vote. Six more months. Ride the turtle. Take back your city.

    Turtleboy Nation: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

    Mayor Joe: What do you mean, “biblical”?

    Turtleboy commenter: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.

    Turtleboy Nation: Exactly.

    Turtleboy Nation: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes… The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

    Mayor Joe: All right, all right! I get the point!
