PTA gangstas...

Wow, Rhode Island is NOT playing when it comes to their children's education (or more importantly, taxpayers' moolah). Straight up firing an entire high school's faulty because the students are under performing? That 'ish is GANGSTER!!

*throws serious side -eye at some of these worthless public schools here in Harlem*

And while I like the
idea of completely cleaning house, the fact that 97 % of the students are living in poverty (which means they don't have anywhere NEAR supportive home environment) and 65% are 1st generation Hispanic where for most English is not the first language (which means a whole lot of stuff is getting lost in translation), leads me to believe that some of these teachers were up against some pretty shitty odds from the gate.

But you know, I guess we'll have to see.

  1. This story just makes me think about the fact that it takes a village and people need to remember that it's the parents, teachers and students fault in this situation.
