Schools, Superintendent: No Response to Allegations of Bullying…

10 May

 Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

Don’t Let Them S–t On You or Your Kids Anymore!

A 2005 Study Discovered that 39 Percent of New York Students Reported that Bullying and Harassment is a Serious Problem in School; In 2012 New York Gets an Anti-Bullying Law.

Ask your kid how’s school?

Most of the studies have looked at student on student bullying; surprisingly, quite a few have studied teachers as bullies or the involvement of teachers in the bullying process.

The ‘Dignity for all Students Act’

The goal of the ‘Dignity for all Students Act’ is to provide all students with a safe and nurturing school environment conducive to learning by putting an end to harassment on school property and to discrimination based on, but not limited to, race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or sex.

The NYCLU is participating on a statewide Task Force that the State Education Department established to help local school districts successfully implement the new law. The Task Force is composed of a range of stakeholders, including teachers, students, parents, school administrators, advocates and state and local education officials.

Senator Shirley Huntley, who co-chairs the Senate Committee on NYC School Governance said, “The Dignity for All Students Act was a much-needed bill I supported that will help curb bullying and harassment of students in public schools based on individual characteristics. Such bullying and harassment creates a hostile environment and often involves verbal threats, intimidation or abuse that negatively affects students’ educational performance and should not be tolerated.”

Specifically, the law reads:

7. “HARASSMENT” SHALL MEAN THE CREATION OF A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT BY CONDUCT OR BY VERBAL THREATS, INTIMIDATION OR ABUSE THAT HAS OR WOULD HAVE THE EFFECT OF UNREASONABLY AND SUBSTANTIALLY INTERFERING WITH A STUDENT’S EDUCATIONAL PERFORMANCE, OPPORTUNITIES OR BENEFITS, OR MENTAL, EMOTIONAL OR PHYSICAL WELL-BEING; OR CONDUCT, VERBAL THREATS, INTIM IDATION OR ABUSE THAT REASONABLY CAUSES OR WOULD REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO CAUSE A STUDENT TO FEAR FOR HIS OR HER PHYSICAL SAFETY; SUCH CONDUCT, VERBAL THREATS, INTIMIDATION OR ABUSE INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO CONDUCT, VERBAL THREATS, INTIMIDATION OR ABUSE BASED ON A PERSON’S ACTU AL OR PERCEIVED RACE, COLOR, WEIGHT, NATIONAL ORIGIN, ETHNIC GROUP, RELIGION, RELIGIOUS PRACTICE, DISABILITY, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER OR SEX.

S 12. DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT PROHIBITED
1. NO STUDENT SHALL BE SUBJECTED TO HARASSMENT BY EMPLOYEES OR STUDENTS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY OR AT A SCHOOL FUNCTION…  

Teacher Bullies a Serious Problem

Out of curiosity, I did a search for articles on teachers who bully using the university search system and found, to my surprise, that there are a good number of articles that have looked at the problem of teachers as bullies. I’m reviewing several scholarly articles on the subject but two have really caught my attention: “Teachers Who Bully Students: A Hidden Trauma” and another  (S.W. Twemlow, 2006) and another “Perceptions of teachers’ support, safety, and absence from school because of fear among victims, bullies, and bully-victims” (R. Berkowitz, 2012). Conclusion: This is a real problem; teachers can and do bully students directly or thru other students. The phenomenon exists, is well known and has been studied by researchers. We are not crazy! Some teachers in the RCS schools, especially, according to reports, in the RCS High School, where teachers publicly stigmatize students who are then bullied, while the teachers refuse to intervene.

And what do you do with a teacher who doesn’t respect the kids, who forgets the essential boundaries, who steps over those boundaries? You can’t even make him or her a bus driver! They are like an animal who tastes human flesh; they’re no good anymore.

School Bullying–Teacher Misconduct

Our readers know that we have already written about this problem in the RCS schools and that we have notified principals and the superintendant of schools, Elizabeth Smith, but it seems cronyism wins out over the welfare of the kids; teachers stick with teachers, principals stick with their teachers, the superintendant sticks with the principals, and the kids suffer the trauma.

Trauma at School

Well, friends, enough is enough; this writer cannot and will not stand by as parents feel that they cannot raise a stink because of the Coeymanazies or for fear of further worse retaliation against the defenseless kids.

So today we wrote to the sponsors of the “Dignity for All Students Act,” all NYS Senators, and to the local Assembly representative, to the Board of Regents, to the NYSED Office of Counsel, to the School Safety Committee of the NYSED, and to the ACLU demanding that they look into the situation in the RCS CSD system, but especially the RCS high school. Bullying has no place in the schools; teacher bullies even less of a place.

We commiserate with the parents who are anxious, even afraid of agravated retaliation if they speak up; so we’re taking the reins and doing it for them.

We’re getting the ball rolling but we need your help to keep it rolling. Stand up to the bullies with us and we’ll get them and their accomplices booted out of the schools and on the street where they belong!

It’s all incestuous! Scandalous! Pathological! And it’s all in Coeymans, NY, right in your own back yard…or on your front lawn!

You can’t turn to the Coeymans Police, either, they’re compromised, tainted! So, if asked why you are not going to your local police, tell the NYSP or the FBI that the Coeymans Police Department is compromised and biased in the matters you are requesting assistance. They cannot be trusted. Give names!

Read the whole story on how the Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness is Compromised.

Did you know: The office of the Albany County District Attorney’s office is also compromised in that the wife of the chief of Coeymans Police is David Soares’ secretary! Can the office of the DA be trusted to handle any misconduct without being unduely influenced? We think not.

We have therefore recommended and would like to further recommend here, that any concerns for personal safety, any complaints of harassment or intimidation, and all incidents of campaign or Vote NO! sign vandalism be handed over to the New York State Police or directly to the FBI in Albany. In all cases of campaign sign vandalism, the FBI should be informed.

The contact details for the Albany Field Office of the FBI are:

FBI Albany Field Office
200 McCarty Avenue
Albany, NY 12209
Phone: (518) 465-7551
Fax: (518) 431-7463

Send the Bullies and the Corrupt Police a Clear Message: NO!

Vote NO! On May 15th

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an
    aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
