Apparently Worcester North High School is about as safe as a feminist academy in the middle of Afghanistan. I just saw on GoLocalWorcester that 599 of the roughly 1,300 students at North today are absent from school. Last night the teacher’s union led by one of my favorite Worcesterites himself Lenny Zalauskus, petitioned the School Committee that there weren’t nearly enough staff in that gigantic megaplex of a building to handle the savages that the government won’t let school’s discipline. They were basically told by Superintendent Melinda Boone that she’d already given them plenty of teachers. In other words – sit down, shut up, and magically fix all these problems:
Following the bomb threat on Tuesday, Worcester Police responded to a fight between 30 to 40 students on the third floor of North. During the fight, a male teacher was punched in the head twice and an assistant principal was spit on.
Another teacher was assaulted by a 6’0”, 235 pound 17-year-old male student. The teacher was struck in the chest by the male student while the teacher was attempting to get his students away from the fight.
What the fuck is going on down there? Bomb threats, 40 person fights, principals getting spit on, teachers getting punched. Don’t forget, a couple years ago a police officer was assaulted there as well. Basically what I get out of this is, why would anyone want this job? You gotta be a pretty great, upstanding member of society to care about helping kids learn THAT much that you’re willing to get punched in the face and spat on for shit money. If every teacher there had nice student like this:
then it would be a great job. But they don’t.
So who is to blame for all this? Deadbeat parents who let their kids run wild? According to local race baiting journalist Clive McFarlane from the Telegram and Gazette, the problem is there’s too many honkies at the front of the classrooms:
“The city will have to seriously address why its nonwhite teachers consist of only 14 percent of its 3,177 teaching staff;”
Newsflash Clive – an educated minority with a Master’s degree would be insane to wanna be a teacher. Teachers ARE required to get Master’s Degrees. We’re living in a world where a minority with a Master’s Degree is pretty much as appealing as you can possibly be to an employer or company. The opportunity to make lots of money, be treated with respect, and not get punched in the face by 19 year old freshmen, isn’t something that any sane person would turn down.
Oh yea, and if you were a minority with a Master’s Degree, would you want your job performance to be based on how a bunch of savages do on a standardized test? Teacher’s livelihoods are also directly tied to their students’ test scores and failure rates. Imagine doctors’ jobs were tied to how much weight their patients gained. Imagine the police’s jobs being tied to how many crimes were committed. It’s insane.
Clive went on…
why for a decade Worcester Public Schools has been a leader in the out-of-school suspensions of Latino and special needs students.”
Ya see that right there? That’s the reason that kids are punching teachers, calling in bomb threats, and spitting on principals. Because people like my man Clive here will infer that they are racist in his columns if schools suspend too many kids of a certain ethnic group. So then schools have no choice but to let kids stay in school who should be suspended.
I’ve heard people say that suspensions aren’t a good punishment because the type of kids who get suspended aren’t going to be punished by their parents at home. They’ll just get into more trouble. While this is true, it’s not my problem. If they wanna start the thug life at such a young age then let them. Not my problem. My problem as a parent is that my kids don’t feel safe going to school because schools are being pressure by people like Clive not to suspend assholes.
The bottom line is this. The Busgate parents are everywhere in this city. Kids are being raised by savages who think it’s OK to ransack a bus full of six year olds and put it on Youtube like you accomplished something. Never forget this video:
It all comes back to Busgate. You think the parents who stormed that bus and assaulted the bus driver read to their kids at night? Do you think they grew up watching Sesame Street or Teen Mom? Do you think their homes are filled with leather-bound books? If you do then you need to contact me about purchasing my world famous Nantucket horse ranch IMMEDIATELY. We’ve seen in that video that the poor children are being taught from a young age that they don’t have to listen to authority. Do what you want, when you wanna do it. Fuck procedure. And if you don’t get your way then violence is an acceptable alternative.
This is what they’re learning at the most impressionable age. Do you think the Busgate parents are going to help them apply to colleges, or will even mention the word “college” when they get to high school? Do you think they’ll magically start telling their kids to respect authority?
The bottom line is schools are places where kids are supposed to learn. You can’t possibly have an atmosphere that is conducive to that when you have bomb threats, kids punching teachers in the face, and spitting on principals. Good for the parents who kept their kids at home. This is an actual social movement I can get down with. Keep them at home until the School Committee and the Superintendent get the message. More teachers, more support, or the strike continues.
P.S. We’re going to be doing an upcoming blog about horror stories from teachers. If you are a teacher at North, or any school for that matter, who has had experiences where kids DO NOT get suspended when they probably should be getting suspended, then we wanna hear your story. Send them to us at Turtleboysports@yahoo.com or message us on Facebook. Of course when we write the article you name will not be used.

Yea…I’m going to say it…I’m going to take the scrutiny…I went to Saint Johns. So yea, I may have no leg to stand on here… But before you get nuts, my parents aren’t rich, they just helped me out by sending me to a good school. I know private schools kind of run themselves, but that not such a bad thing. Punishments are harsh and swift at good old SJ and it made me and a lot of others better people. Let’s stop coddling kids. We should also stop
Blaming the parents. Yea, they might be scumbags, but by the age of 17 you know what is right and what is wrong. Environment can’t be soley to blame.
First off, Clive McFarlane might just be the biggest race baiter Worcester has ever seen in its print media. Pretty unfortunate that blacks/minorities need to blame every time one of their own gets in trouble with the law/ in school on the white authority figure/educator. Newsflash people. The only thing the white educator is doing is trying to improve the quality of life of your child. Pretty pathetic that Clive has to put the blame on someone because of their skin color. Thats the biggest thing with blacks is they never want to own up to themselves being in the wrong and instead blame institutional racism. When are white people going to have to stop apologizing for wrongful acts committed by their ancestors generations ago? Was I alive when Rosa Parks rode that bus? No. Was I alive when Martin Luther King Jr. was shot? No. So stop blaming me for it because I’m white. The funny thing is that the majority of educators I have ever encountered are all Democrats that support the advancement of colored people but Clive McFarlane over here wants to paint them as a bunch of racists that may as well be members of the KKK. Get your fucking shit together Clive. Not all white people are out to get you or the people of the same skin color as you.
true blue collar – I’m in. My kids are in WPS, and while I don’t fear for their lives right now, I have major concerns that don’t seem to have clear solutions. It’s time we all step up, step out, stop complaining and actually do something to make a change in his city. I love Worcester and think we have some amazing potential. Let’s do this!!
Waiting to hear what Uber Lib Tracy Novick has as a solution to this very real crisis Seeing she is every bit responsible as the infamous Busgate mutants.
Well, considering your first line of defense is to refer to your salary I would be in no way surprised if you were very incompetent in quite a few other areas of your life. You may be well payed, but you are certainly not intelligent. I’d be willing to bet you’re a construction worker or truck driver ( no diss to the profession. Both are highly skilled jobs, however someone can be good at both while not retaining the knowledge of any type of community organizing.) “Pussy” – Do I need any more justification than you using that term as an insult to display your lack of intelligence?
I will give you this, you’ve got one up on most people who post here. At least you’re willing to help the youth as opposed to constantly reject them.
If that’s my one up, then why belittle over errors in grammar instead of reading into my point. You and some emma broad were the first to throw a stone. I merly suggested a protest to raise awareness within the wps “leadership” regarding childrens safety, and was told im a moron with a pipe dream. Why doea zero tolorance apply only to Caucasian kids…please dont tell me that is innacurate because i have a few life examples i can give. And by the way, saying that people are morons in a respected line of work followed up by “no offense” is really you saying you think your above them. Not that i am in either line of work. I do applaud you for your typical liberal gift of being the procoker….then when confronted, spinning it so you come off as the victim.
As much as out pains me to say this….its decent people’s turn on this city. Our turn to protest. And we sound start in front of ms. Boones office, i believe the fanning building on chatham street. Good people are told and tell never stoop to there level, but unfortunately its only the rusty wheel that gets the grease. I am reaching out to turtle boy or anyone who frequents his articles to assemble and coordinate a peacfull protest of the superintendants office. Lets stop shaking our heads in disgust behind a phone or computer. If some one is interested. Leave a comment in this thread and i will exchange email adresses. I am willing to take a day off from work to try to change the public schools for the better…for my kids up and coming of thay age…are you
This turtle-idiot will never publicly support you or any movement without doing so from behind a cyber mask. Keep your pipe dreams to yourself wacko before you make us puke
Im a wacko for caring about our kids…my kids? But im willing to bet u support the racial protests as of late? So what the guy swears in his blogs…dont mean there isnt truth in his articles.
Im a wacko for caring about our kids…my kids? But im willing to bet u support the racial protests as of late? So what the guy swears in his blogs…dont mean there isnt truth in his articles. By the way, my songs in east middle and due to a discovery stemming from north…tjey had 5 cops posted there all day due tp gun threats and did not even communicate it with parents. Kinda fucked up if you ask me. But curtosy and care is reserved only for those whit schools i suppose. Douche bag
I don’t even understand what you’re trying to say… I think you need to go back to high school “urself”
Oh hahahahha he mispelled some words on his phone. Understand this, tou implying i am incopitent is false. I will gladly put my salary up against yours. If i do go back to school, it certainly woulsnt be woecester public schools. And its pussies like you who are willing to sit back and let everything go to shit because if the decent people of the “community” speak up, we are against “people of color” in every way. Now before you do resort to your typical defensive tactics, just know i have done more volunteering for worcester youths than you could possibly know. What have you done? So go lol urself right back up on your high horse.
Ok… When I went to HS in Worcester (Burncoat, Mid 90s) you got 10 days for glaring at the VP. You got expelled for assaulting people after your 5th strike. Your parents were called when you did something stupid. All this happened, unless you were a sports phenomena that had to play in the big game, then no matter what fight you got into, who you beat up, or what you were smoking or screwing under the bleachers you were not disciplined at all.
I also went to the school that was not broken up by jock, nerd, princess, outcast, outlaw./ Burncoat was not the Breakfast Club. You were as follow: ROTC Kid (Me), Honor Geek (middle classs “rich” kids with good grades), Puerto Rican (NEVER look them in the eye, they will punch you), Black (you can look them in the eye, unless they look mad, then look away), random fodder (the kids who were not rich, not black or puerto rican, not ROTC, they just…were…). This was how it was… WTF happened?! I am so glad I moved out of Worcester because my co-worker’s son will be going to North and now she is terrified! Who wouldn’t be! Her son is blue eyes, blonde haired innocence. The kid will get eaten alive!
Racism..once again.. is the center of the problem, but ONLY because racists bastards (the ones who use it as a crutch) are the reason this is a problem! You know why black and hispanics are three times more likely to be expelled? BECAUSE THEY F***ING COMMITTED THE CRIME/ISSUE!!!! I can see the problem… They commit bad things… They get in trouble… Isn’t that how America is? NOPE! F*** this lame ass City! I left because my WHITE KID was learning swears and sex bullshit from kids in her class from KINDERGARTEN! We moved to a suburb.. guess what… mostly white… NOT A PROBLEM! She is thriving more because she is with her OWN PEOPLE! THE WHITE PEOPLE! Sound racist? Maybe it is… But if black people can be oppressed by their color, so can I and my daughter… My daughter is oppressed by the fact that “minorities” are getting more special treatment than the white kids.
WHITE LIVES MATTER!
Guess what, you are an idiot. You’re misguided troubles in no way deal with race as much as they do with a class society. White people by definition are not the subject of racism because systematically a white person is given more power in our society and has the advantage of being white.
Umm…”Seriously Worcester WTF” are you sure your white daughter didn’t learn those swears from her parents? BTW I’m a white woman, Worcester born and raised and now I am an educator in the system. My daughter is also an educator and began her career in a white town and guess what?? Same problems they just emerge in a different way so don’t count your chickens as they say. Good luck.
Ummm “Seriously Worcester WTF”…you sure your daughter didn’t learn those swears at home? I sure hope she learns more about other cultures and ethnic groups in school because obviously she won’t at home. Good luck in the towns and beware of the hidden issues you will have…there will be plenty.
I love it in the poopshoot.
