A controversial Coney Island principal who grabbed headlines for banning the patriotic tune God Bless the U.S.A. from an end-of-year kindergarten ceremony in 2012 is at it again, school staffers told the Daily News.
Public School 90 boss Greta Hawkins on Monday killed a plan for pre-K students to march into an end-of-year celebration carrying flags to a song called Stand Up for the Red, White and Blue, teachers said.
Hawkins, 49, of Brooklyn, told teachers she banished the patriotic display planned for the June 19 festivities because the staffers who organized it didnt ask her permission.
But staffers said their principals history of banning patriotic music from school events suggests that her motivations might have been something else entirely.

I think the Principal is a black woman. Many blacks do not believe in truly celebrating what is great, powerful and beautiful about this country. This small pecentage of black people choses instead to focus on all the ways America has made the world a worse place, and how we must ask the third world for forgiveness as we pay them reparations. That is how this pricipal strikes me. She has a huge chip on her shoulder. The school needs to replace her, and be ready for her to sue for ,what else? Racism. She is raining on the parade of their childhood.
Da Prinzipple she be needin to be pied in da face juz like Anita Bryant.
Why are most of female principals and teachers the crazy ones
Could it be, because it was, as some know,
I would investigate the group affiliations of this
This pretty much describes Barack Houssain bin Obummer.
She sounds like a frustrated control freak.
Uhhhh...Because they're female!
Not hard to toss an entire school board. All it takes is parents that give a damn about their kids.
Females are crazy...and males are right behind ‘em.
Leadership on the other hand really works.
There aren’t many real, assimilated Americans out that way.
She’s right about one thing...God Bless the U.S.A. SHOULD be banned. But she didn’t go far enough. She should make the kids sing “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” should be sung instead. The former is modern banal tripe whereas the latter has stirring, emotional lyrics and a much better, more easily sung tune.
My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the Pilgrim’s pride!
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love.
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture fills
Like that above.
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom’s song.
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
Our father’s God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!
How did I guess her race before looking at her picture?
Females are crazy...and males are right behind em.
