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
