P.S 118-Lorraine Hansbury School Ouster of Principal CYNTHIA OFORI-FEASTER
We are asking for the removal
and dismissal of an unworthy New York City Board of
Education personnel, Ms.Cynthia Ofori-Feaster, Principal at the Lorraine B. Hansberry
Elementary School (P.S 118) in Queens. Prior to Ms.Ofori-Feaster being appointed to
P.S118 as Principal. The school held an “A+”educational rating, unfortunately since her two (2) years at this school, the school’s rating has been decreased to an “F”and this is unacceptable! How can this be allowed in this country, in the year 2012, a Principal authorizes the bathroom doors to be locked and water to be turned off during school hours? These children are young and need access to the facilities when the need warrants. We are not in a country without Laws Regulations and these acts are not legal. The environment our children are surrounded in also place a great deal of emphasis on how they react to what they are being taught. Example, Ms.Ofori-Feaster frequently degrades and belittles the teachers in the presence of the students as well as, disciplining faculty over the PA system. These teachers are working in a very hostile environment, so many of these teachers are looking to leave there positions at this school but they continue to endure the abuse for the sake of the children. How are these children suppose to show respect to these teachers when they themselves are not being shown respect by the Principal of the school. We have called upon the New York City Board of Education to please take some action in regards to our charges against Ms. Ofori-Feaster and have been told to give them until the end of the year. Personally as caring parents that is too long of a wait and too much of a detriment to our children’s safety and education. This school needs proper guidance which it is not receiving, there are too many unanswered questions such as funds being reported missing, signatures appearing unauthorized,how long will this be allowed to continue?
We are asking everyone to please help us fight for our children and to send a clear
message to the Department of Education that we are not going to stand by and watch
our school continue on this path!
join us in saying Ms. Cynthia Ofori-Feaster you have
unfortunately served your time and you must now go, our children & school deserve better!
