Skip to comments.City ignored pleas to ax ‘lunatic’ principal

Sills, 48, was a graduate of the DOEs Leadership Academy, which trains principals, and had little teaching experience. Insiders said she lacked literacy skills, noting her invitation to a Nov. 23, 2005, holiday buffet in honor of my gradutitude to employees, including security personel and custodially staff members.
Sills ruled by threats and intimidation, ex-staffers complained. She yells at a volume that resounds throughout the building, slams doors and uses foul language, a 2006 letter to Condon claims.
That letter also accuses Sills of racism: She has hired only black teachers and has targeted white teachers and a secretary. Many left or were forced out.
One former teacher charged that Sills fabricated several observations, rated her unsatisfactory and then forged her signature on the documents.

Ms. Sills is “not a bug, but a feature.” The purpose of the system is to keep people like her - those with the right appearance, unquestionably loyal to the regime - positions of authority, and to reward them with money, social privilege, and opportunities for theft.
"Give the coloreds a chance and they won't disappoint you." When race is the supreme criterion, Sill happens.
Where did the money go?
PS 106 was allotted $3.3 million in 2013-14, including more than $160,000 in federal Title I funds to serve kids from poor homes.
Yet the School of No had a library in shambles, a nurse with no office, no Common Core math or reading books, first-grade special-ed students without a qualified teacher and no payroll secretary to keep the books.
She rattled off some recent flicks: Underdog, Fat Albert, a basketball movie and one about the Jamaican bobsled team. Sometimes they watched the first half of a movie one day, and the rest the next day. Its all a blur.
It was so many movies, I cant remember which day I watched what, she said. Sometimes I went to sleep or just sat there and played with my hair.
One movie had curses and kissing in it. I asked the teacher if she could change it. She told me to sit down. She was just playing with her phone.
That was under Bloomberg. You’ll see, things will be different now.
Sarcasm not meant for you!
The more loutish and brutish, the better. Keeps the locals in fear, and easier to manipulate.
Political Correctness. Affirmative Action. Black Pride.
And to the racist teacher that cited Principal Sill's use of the word “gradutitude” in the invitation; haven't you ever heard of EUBONICS?
Don’t you worry, Andy Cuomo is working on the case even as we write and will be issuing a directive banning incompetent liberal extremists from the education process./s
Wonder how many of Cuomo’s children, nieces and nephews, cousins go to government schools.
I’ll bet the NY city principals have a union that limits “interference for incompetence” by the employers.
She was a “graduate” of some kind of DOE program obviously aimed at getting more blacks into principalships (qualified or not). So she’s a minority by profession, and not only that, but a special bureaucrat-trained professional minority.
Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s politically connected in some way. She got away with things that were so blatant, even to the point of being allowed to ignore a lawsuit filed by parents whose child was sexually assaulted at the school, that she must have more than just the race card.
Schools like that are needed.
Else, how would the Obamadork have received a degree?
We all know he is demonstrably stupid.
Right you are. This school is perfect manifestation of the liberal education system taken to its ultimate ends. While this school may be the best in class, many other schools deserve honorable mention and enjoy the same features. That's what corrupt liberal government produces, and where there is no credible political opposition, this sort of product will grow and fester until it consumes society.
This is about government rot which now extends from the schoolhouse to the White House. Unfortunately, our members of Congress are unwilling to do anything about it. Their lucrative positions on the gravy train are more important than what happens to a few little dark children in Queens.
They don’t answer because Sills is an affirmative action hire and her only “qualification” is her skin color.
When you read the article and see just how many people were contacted and did nothing at all for years, probably because they too are incompetent or afraid of being called racist i’d say parents at that school have all the lawsuits in the world at their disposal.
Stories like this make me ill. Having attended public school in NYC i can tell you that this stuff didn’t happen in the past. When we install quotas we install mediocrity and worse.
Mona Broderick third from the right looks like she’s ready to rumble.
That’s a man baby!!
Conservative’s predictions regarding affirmative action were waaay too optimistic.
The “woman” a intellectual and social degenerate. Any parent who sends their child to her school is abusing them. Affirmative action strikes again...and again...and again.
Looks like the neighborhood has changed. Bet a large number of future doctors and other competent professionals are reflected in the picture.
It is not about color, rather it about culture.
Florence Webb, front row towards the middle has a cute grimace. Bet she was fun.
That facial expression kinda reminds me of someone.
“...it’s about culture.”
The ex mayor of New York ws to busy sticking his nose into others peoples business to be bothered with hte problems of New York.
But have no fear the new mayor will surpass him without even trying.
Each day the voters of New york prove that they are completely clueless and as such deseve whatever they get and deserve no pity whatever they get.

For a minute there I had visions of Hitlary. Birds of a feather, be they black or while. Amazing.
I take it that most of the kids are black. Black on black crime is a non-issue. Look at murders and crime in major inner cities. Liberals want to keep the status quo. To do otherwise is racist.
ALBANY Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo says extreme conservatives dont fit in with most New Yorkers.Helluva job instilling Roman Catholic values, there.
If they are extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, Cuomo said in a radio interview Friday.
Cuomo defined extreme conservatism as being anti-gay by opposing same-sex marriage rights, opposed to abortion rights and favoring legalization of assault weapons. Cuomo officials later said the governors remarks were aimed at extremist conservative Republican candidates.
That’s the neighborhood where Richard Feynman grew up.
I would bet there’s hundreds more Marcella Sills in schools around the country. Administrators are reluctant to fire these people. Of course, many of the administrators are probably as bad in their jobs as Sills. Certainly, any non-black adms will be charged with racism if they try to rid the system of worthless people like Sills. And most likely Sills would just be replaced with someone like her. That’s affirmative action for you folks. In the U.S. skin color trumps competence every time.
I think it was Theodore Dalrymple who wrote about the corrosive effects on people when they have to pretend they don't see what's right in front of them. It's one thing to have a gray functionary in a position: people can reasonably think, "Well, nobody else would be able to do much in the job, either,"
However, when there's a comic book figure such as Ms. Sills, and normal people have to pretend they don't notice, it can drive people to despair.
LOL! She does look pugnacious, and she’s got that aggressive big hair.
Worse thing is she won’t be called upon to make restitution. She won’t go to prison. Hell she may even be allowed to keep her pension. There will be no satisfactory outcome that will deter the next idiot the DOE pushes through based on any criteria except competence.
They have achieved critical mass in positions of power and are hiring only 'fellow travelers'. In my childrens' school they laid off the only openly Republican teacher claiing budget problems- then hired a flaming libtard teacher a month later
It looks like she took “Facial Expression Lessons” from Al Sharpton.
Is there any possible way to get your child out of that environment?
SHE’S A MAN BABY!!!!
She’s black, that’s why she was kept on, no argument from the hierarchy.
Another interesting thing about that picture is the predominance of boys over girls: 26 out of 34. In the population of 13 year olds, one would expect very slightly more boys than girls about 51 out of 100, due to a higher number of boys among live births. This is the eighth grade, so pregnancy or marriage is not the likely explanation. If boys and girls (among what was then a largely Jewish population, apparently something like 31 of 34) were equally likely to graduate eighth grade, the chances of observing 26 boys in a class of 34 would be less than 0.07%. We can reject the hypothesis that girls graduated eighth grade as the same rate as boys. But why? (BTW, during World War II, median educational attainment among GIs was eighth grade. Having a HS diploma made you officer material.)
My son’s kindergarten teacher (many years ago) told me that black teachers could get away with abusing black children, it was disgraceful. That was in the 90s
Thats the neighborhood where Richard Feynman grew up.
Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!!!
Both! (Lemon and cream.)
Dalrymple is extremely perceptive. I read everything of his that I can find.
Joan Mullen farted, Florence smells it, Mona heard it and is ready to kick butt.
One of obama’s you-knows-what.
The real problem is Phyllis Kaplan and her gang. The twin towers of Joan on either side of her, the unnecessarily sadistic Anna Goia, and the always violent Patricia Harty, all relegated to the standing row of the picture.
