Meet Esther Kennedy. Esther Kennedy was born and raised in Rural New York and moved to the Dover Portsmouth area to work in public schools. She is currently the owner of a Marina called Esther's Marina on 41 Pickering AVE in Portsmouth. She has worked in the special education department in The school systems of Dover and Guilford. She has also worked in Marine affairs and several state wide task force.
Yes! We should believe a typical city politician in a large growing New England city. There is however a dark side.
Esther Kennedy was an employee of the school district of Dover New Hampshire, one of the most corrupt education bureaucracies in America. Dover New Hampshire's schools in the nineties became among the worst in America, despite being majority white and middle class. To this day the school system is one of the worst in the region. One of the ways it became that way due to an influx of failing and delinquent students from Concord and Boston. Perhaps the root of the problem is the corruption of the teachers and staff and the very essence of government funded compulsory education.
This is a system where parents have no say in what goes on or they don't care, where there are no checks and balances and where by law our children are herded like cattle to be indoctrinated, dumbed down, chewed up and spit out! The faculty themselves are out of control and tyrannical. In schools like the ones in Dover, not only are students subjugated to bullying and persecution by other students but the faculty as well. If they ever make it to graduation without being expelled, dropping out or killed, they leave with inadequate skills and knowledge making them ill equipped to enter the real world where they find themselves on welfare or in menial jobs. In the middle school for example, there have been violent incidents. in 1991, a student went around the cafeteria stabbing other students with hypodermic needles. The biggest victims are those students who suffer from disabilities and who are troubled.
The special education department in New Hampshire schools especially in Dover and surrounding areas leaves much to be desired despite government legislation. It was in this department where Esther Kennedy worked as a special education teacher and it was where she caused great harm to many who she was supposed to help.
One student who we will call Greg was one of those students who suffered. He was victimized, bullied and persecuted by other students and even the teachers such as Esther. He was assigned to special ed because he had ADD. Instead of giving him the help that he needed, she placed him in situations where he suffered harassment. When students on the bus bullied him and spread rumors, a teacher was willing to give him a ride home instead of being subject to danger. Esther Kennedy later forbade them and told Greg he had to ride the bus everyday. She went as far to tell Greg he had never been bullied in his life and that it was his imagination. Two months later, the situation escalated and Greg was thrown off the bus after a violent confrontation with another student. He was later given rides by a family friend. Greg continued to suffer torment as a result of Esther Kennedy's actions until senior year.
Another student was groped in the school store by a homosexual student who worked there. When he attempted to write a letter about it, Kennedy intervened and threatened blackmail by telling other students if he wrote it. Sexual harassment is common in schools such as those in Dover and Portsmouth and the faculty cover it up by attacking the victims. When a scandal was going to erupt concerning yet another incident, Principal Pederson, the former principal transferred Esther Kennedy to the Guilford school district. It is not known what actions she took there.
Unfortunately, no mention of her scandalous past was brought up. The faculty covered it along with other actions, many former students had either left the region or were too scared to bring it up. None the less with New England rushing towards communism it probably would not have made a difference. Hopefully her first term as council woman will be her last.
Esther Kennedy and corruption in our schools is another reason, one of countless others why parents should not put there kids into public school but to choose home school, the loving and merciful option. Unfortunately for many current and former students of violent schools, it is too late.
Anyone here live in the region? Have any charges been pressed for any of those deeds?
If the law isn’t getting involved there are some more solutions...
Unfortunately this took place at least 10 years ago. The statute of limitations has expired I think. None the less someone should get a few legal aids involved and interview some of the pupils currently in school looking for 7 digits.
This is the first I’ve heard about this but the NH seacoast has never been part of the rest of NH. It’s always been where Boston libs meet Maine libs. For the most part.
Having gone to public school in NH I am not surprised. How could anyone willingly put their kid in a US public school?
Ten years ago we were one of the reddest of the red states. Now... see tag line.
don’t forget about Concord and Manchester. They’re even more liberal.
Concord is liberal but Manchester is not. Manchester voted for George Bush in ‘04, while Obama won this year in the city by fewer than 5000 votes. Dover and environs are another story - full of transplants from Moonbatville, USA who have ****ed up this state to a fare-thee-well.
I live in Durham, 5 miles from Dover. None of this reached the public. None of the many Dover HS students or parents I know ever said anything about this to me.
Perhaps that’s because none of them are special education students, who tend to be a rather isolated group.
That is mostly true. I have only met one person associated with Dover special edu, and I wasn’t impressed.
