Is the Turtleboy Sports Revolution the most influential movement in the history of the world? Because when we blog something we get results almost IMMEDIATELY. Toys for Tots, widening certain roads. Doesn’t matter what it is. When we call someone out on their bullshit it gets widely read and the powers that be suddenly get their shit together. They know we’re always watching.
Well apparently according to my sources Melinda Boone’s cronies are NOT very happy about our recent exposes on their shananigans. From what my sources are telling me, the overpaid suits at 20 Irving Street are trolling the Facebook machine for Turtleboy supporters and employees who are subversive enough to dare to express an opinion. They’re scared. They’re used to hacks like Clive McFarlane covering for them.
But those days are over and they’re losing their minds.
The bottom line is this. We’re not gonna stand here and keep our mouths shut when we see something blatantly wrong. Teachers can’t say shit on social media because big brother would rather police their opinions on the Internet then give them the resources to help kids succeed in the classroom.
But contrary to some reports, none of us are INSANE enough to be a public school teacher. This is why we created Turtleboy – it gives the community an anonymous voice. Turtleboy says what people are thinking. And for some reason in America – the supposed greatest country on earth – you are not allowed to say what you are thinking publicly. This is why we fight.
Anyway, the most recent example of our success is with the nudniks at North who punch teachers and principals in the face. It is INCONCEIVABLE that your local joke of a newspaper has not written about this yet. I guess they don’t consider it news.
I mean, here you have a Superintendent who is deliberately sending kids who throw chairs at teachers back to the school instead of expelling them, and they punch an administrator in the face. Not once, but several times a year. And she does it so she can boost her stats and make it seem like she had a magical formula for fixing complicated socioeconomic complications. That’s fucked up. And if it wasn’t for Turtleboy Sports it would just be an unconfirmed rumor amongst friends on Facebook.
Well they obviously know we’re not letting up on this issue because according to the Worcester Police’s Facebook page the students involved in the incident have been summoned to court:
On Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at approximately 1:00 PM, a Worcester Police officer, assigned to North High, was out in front of the School when he was informed by a school security officer that there was a problem inside the school involving four students fighting. The officer called out for assistance and immediately went to the school office to meet with the vice principals.
Upon the officers arrival he met with one of the vice principals. Two of the four students fighting were being detained in the conference room while the other two males involved were in other separate rooms.
The vice principal informed the officer that he observed “two male students speaking with other students in a menacing manner.” Upon seeing this, the vice principal separated the group and followed the two aggressors back to their seats. While speaking with the two students, another 18-year-old male student ran over to the two students that the vice principal was conversing with and began punching one of the males. The male being attacked is 19-years-old.
At this time two additional male students, one 16 years old, the other 18 years old, rushed to the aid of their friend who was being attacked and joined in the fight. The vice principal was in the middle of the fight and trying to separate the males. During this altercation, the vice principal fell to the ground and received punches to his head and ear. He also received an injury to his neck.
During the altercation other faculty members attempted to separate the males as they continued to fight. One teacher received superficial scratches and broke his eyeglasses as he pushed the males apart.
All four males will be receiving school suspensions. The four will also be charged with Assault and Battery, Affray and Disrupting a School Assembly.
The vice principal went to a local hospital for injuries sustained in the fight.
So let me get this straight. VP was punched by students and sent to the hospital, and nothing was done about it until we wrote a blog? This is what we’ve come to in the Worcester Public Schools. They literally cover shit up until we blog about it.
And 19 years old? I remember when I was 19. I was a sophomore in college. But apparently it’s so important that Melinda Boone improves North’s graduation rate that we bend over backwards to keep asshole 19 year olds in school at all costs. Ya got that? This is a GOOD thing that we’re keeping
kids grown men like this in school. Sure a bunch of teachers and principals are gonna get the shit kicked out of them once in a while, but at the end of the day Melinda Boone can point to a chart and show us how awesome she is!!
Seriously though, every normal person agrees with our take on this one. Good kids have a right to learn. They have a right to safety. Clearly that is being jeopardized by these hoodlums and criminals in the name of data. Fuck your stats Melinda Boone. Get these dooshnozzles out of the schools. Your stupid graph might not look as good, but at least it will be clean and honest. Please, I know you’re reading this. Show me you’re not the incompetent bozo that I think you are right now. Do the right thing.
