Did you know that the fact that a handful of North High students are acting like savages is actually the fault of the teachers? I know, fucked up right? But that’s exactly what the problem is according to our clickbaiting whore friend with the long flowing dreadlocks over at the Telegram. Every time I think this genius can’t possibly get any worse he finds a way to outdo himself.

Since December, when a student brawl erupted at North High School and sparked a teacher uprising kept ablaze by subsequent reported incidents of fights among students, North High has placed 34 students on long-term suspensions of at least 90 days. Ten of those students were issued suspensions of a year or more.

No they didn’t. That’s a lie. A blatant made up lie. According to the recent law passed in July of 2014 it’s virtually impossible to suspend a student for more than 90 days, never mind 10 students in three months.

The facts are that a full-time police liaison has been assigned to the school, while an additional officer will visit the school periodically.

Yes, because we wrote about it five million times and enough people got angry that they had no choice. Solid leadership up top.

The fact, as mentioned by Ms. Boone, is that some North High staff members have refused to take part in efforts the North High administration and majority of its teachers made to successfully improve the school’s graduation rate. 

Good. Good for those teachers who refused to buy into the bullshit. I’d like to shake their hands. Since when should schools be trying to improve graduation rates? If you can’t figure out how to get a bunch of D’s and pass the MCAS on your own, then you shouldn’t have a high school degree. Does a diploma mean something or not? Why do celebrate high school graduations with parties if you didn’t really earn anything? Because when it’s incumbent on the school to figure out a way for kids to graduate from high school, then the kids are no longer really earning it on their own. They’re having it handed to them.

I’ve had countless teachers email me about these fake graduation rates. Too many people to count have shared their stories with me about being forced to give kids make up tests, or letting them write a bullshit paper in the last week of school in order to pass the class. If you resist and try to be a teacher with integrity then you’re labeled as one of the bad ones. You’re pretty much guaranteeing that you’re gonna get a bad evaluation at the end of the year, which could then lead to you losing your job. So basically teachers have to make a decision – do the right thing or say “fuck it” and pass them. It’s not surprising when you have bills to pay that most go with the latter, and “take part in efforts to improve the graduation rate.”

If North High School is in crisis, it is a crisis that is being manufactured by adults, not students.

Hold on. Did he really just say that? Did he really just say that all the problems at North High are on the TEACHERS??? What fucking planet is this dooshnozzle living on? Yea, it was totally the teachers fault that kids are being raised by Busgate-type parents. It’s the teachers fault that they have students with parents who have never read them a book. It’s the teachers fault for not understanding the “culture” of students who punch them in the face. LOL. You just can’t make this stuff up people.

Remarks by committee members Brian O’Connell and Dianna Biancheria, for example, seem to suggest that these rebellious teachers do not want Ms. Boone’s action plan or her disciplinary philosophy, but her total capitulation to their wishes and demands.

I know, that’s freaking weird right Clive? School Committee members want the person they hired to do her job. Freaking bizarre I tell ya. Maybe teachers just want to be treated like professionals? Ya know, because they went to college and they’re trained professionals. Because professional people’s opinions are taken seriously. When a doctor tells you to stop eating so much shitty food you listen to them. When a plumber tells you you need a new water heater you listen to them. But when teachers try to communicate what they think will improve the educational process in their school, Cliverino can just dismiss them as “rebellious teachers.”

But one only had to listen to the number of times some teachers in attendance derisively interrupted and dismissed Ms. Boone’s remarks Thursday to understand the personal animosity they have for the superintendent, and that nothing but her departure would satisfy them.

I was at the meeting and was standing in the section where one guy was yelling “fire Boone.” People were sick of hearing the same old bullshit about meetings and plans, and blah, blah, blah. And for the record, the guy who kept yelling that wasn’t a teacher. He was a parent. I know this because I actually spoke with him briefly afterwards. You know, like a reporter would do. You should try that sometime Clive.

You only have to read between the lines of School Committee member Tracy O’Connell Novick’s remarks, in explaining why she voted to extend Ms. Boone’s contract, to find a clue to one of the underlying issues behind these teachers’ displeasure with the superintendent.

Ms. Boone, Ms. Novick said, has strongly resisted during her tenure abundant pressure “to increase police presence and to turn our schools into armed encampments.”

You got it Clive. The teachers in the school favor a police presence to in order to keep them safe and let them do what we pay them to do – teach. Your girl Melinda refused to even listen to them. It’s shocking then that teachers would be that upset when a person, who was being protected by the Worcester Police at the meeting, would tell teachers that her safety is more important than theirs.

And don’t even get me started on Tracy Novick. She lives in a tax free home in West Tatnuck. She’s suing the city so that bums can panhandle, largely because they won’t be doing it in her neighborhood. She’s as isolated from the realities of day to day life at North High as you can possibly get. She has anointed herself town crier and constantly is tweeting and blogging about stuff that no one cares about. Here’s her Twitter feed in just the past hour alone:

If this was 1815 instead of 2015 she’d have a bell and she’d be standing in the middle of town square yelling out the news that no one cares about.

Indeed, School Committee member Hilda Ramirez in her remarks succinctly noted that the issue is much more than just “fights.”

“There is a bigger issue here that none of us is talking about,” she said.

“I think a lot of people are seeing this as a safety issue, and I am seeing it as a huge trust issue … trust between adults and students and between everyone. Before we make any decisions we need to check what’s going on between adults here.”

HAHAHAHAHHA. She actually said that??? How did I miss that the other night? “A lot of people are seeing this as a safety issue.” Yea, probably because every vice principal in that school has been punched in the face by a kid. Weird right? And what the hell is she even talking about with this “trust issue?” What does any of that even MEAN? Teachers don’t trust certain kids that wanna punch them in the face. Strange how that happens.

The bottom line is that teachers get evaluated every year now by one of the most insane, arbitrary, ridiculous set of standards you’ve ever seen. Meanwhile, Melinda Boone gets a free pass. Let’s just look at a couple of things that could easily get teachers fired, based on the “unsatisfactory” part of the rubrics for their evaluation, which Melinda Boone has been guilty of herself:

“Minimizes or ignores conflicts, and/or responds in inappropriate ways.” Hmmmm. I would say dismissing teachers concerns as “rebellious” would be minimizing or ignoring conflict. Wouldn’t you Clive? And the TEACHER is responsible for making sure students respect one another. So if a kid punches another kid in the face during your class, then that’s on the TEACHER because they didn’t establish the right environment. Got it.

“Maintins a physical environment that is unsafe or does not support student learning?” Has Melinda Boone created a safe learning environment at North High? LOL.



Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 5.54.04 PM

“Uses instructional practices that leave most students uninvolved and/or passive participants.” Oh wait, isn’t that the same exact thing Melinda Boone is doing to teachers by leaving them UNINVOLVED in the plan to create a safe environment at North High?

LOL. If a teacher was as bad at their job as Melinda Boone has been at her’s then they would’ve been fired a long, long time ago. But for whatever reason the person who makes three times what a teacher makes is held to a lesser standard. That makes TONS of sense.

Here’s what needs to happen. People like Hilda Ramirez, Tracy Novick, and Jive Clive all need to become substitute teachers in North for 30 days. I’m sure they’ll be hard-pressed to find the time. After all Clive is busy writing two columns a week about the same subject and Tracy is extremely busy tweeting the news that no on asked about. We’ll give them all the wonderful BD kids who they can inspire with their wisdom. If they can make it out of those 30 days and still spew the same sort of nonsense they do know, then I’ll be able to take them seriously. But as for now, they’re nothing but loud-mouthed yahoos with too much time on their hands.

    There is no such thing as a “Clean Hippie.” You are all dirty disgusting freaks that loves to go against the norm and disrupt everyday hard working people from living their lives. You are horrible and vile sub-humans and the fact that you assholes are taking advantage of our freedoms is an outrage. You all should be arrested for disturbing our peace and being a disorderly person. If you can call your filthy selves a person.

    First of all shit for brains change your name. Everybody and their mother loves the real Tom Brady, or at least everyone in all six New England states. But really though everybody loves the real Tom Brady. You are not him. You are not close. You wish you were him but you’re too much of an ass to even be close to him. So change your name and stop being such an idiot. You must never get laid. If so you paid for it and I feel bad for that hooker.
