According to a post on www.NYpost.com a school in Far Rockaway, Queens in New York is lost and forgotten. This report disgusted me to say the least. Children are the furture right? So why are the leaders of tommorrow receiving less than less than attention and eductional support?
According to the report PS 106 is allocated $2.9 million to serve a low-income population with 98 percent of its students eligible for free lunches. As a Title 1 school, it gets extra federal funds, but community members say they’ve never seen a budget tracking the income and spending.
The article was ridden with horrible personal accounts from parents and community member. These struck me the worse:
that's not even the half....
see the full story here:
Having friends that are educators, and once aspiring to be an educator myself, this story is nothing but a cry for help. Why should the students, parents and related parties suffer at the hands of an unorganized and unethical leadership.
What are your thoughts on the situation over at PS106? We'd like to hear from you. Tweet @TheBLKSocialite

In The Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment Power 100 issue, the legendary Oprah Winfrey opened up about why she never had children. The Oprah Winfrey Show host has no regrets and is happy with her decision to forgo motherhood.
"If I had kids, my kids would hate me," Winfrey said. "They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would've probably been them."
Instead, Winfrey, 59, views the students of her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls as her children. She explained, "I'm responding to everything from 'I'm feeling lost' to 'I need advice about a boy."
