New York City Schools Demonstrate Why We Must Be Forced to Spend Even More on Public Education

This is why we need to spend even more on public education:

Marcella-Sills

Above you see NYC principal Marcella Sills enjoying the warmth of a luxurious fur coat. She is known for tooling around in a pricey BMW. Meanwhile at her school,

Students at PS 106 in Far Rockaway, Queens, have gotten no math or reading and writing books for the rigorous Common Core curriculum, whistleblowers say.

The 234 kids get no gym or art classes. Instead, they watch movies every day.

“The kids have seen more movies than Siskel and Ebert,” a source said.

The school nurse has no office equipped with a sink, refrigerator or cot.

The library is a mess: “Nothing’s in order,” said a source. “It’s a junk room.”

No substitutes are hired when a teacher is absent — students are divvied up among other classes.

A classroom that includes learning-disabled kids doesn’t have the required special-ed co-teacher.

About 40 kindergartners have no room in the three-story brick building. They sit all day in dilapidated trailers that reek of “animal urine,” a parent said; rats and squirrels noisily scamper in the walls and ceiling.

Principal Sills spends very little time at her job. Who can blame her? The school sounds like a real dump. Her home in Westbury, Long Island is no doubt far more pleasant.

Since no math or reading program has been provided, students spend much of their time watching “Fat Albert” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks.”

Sills receives a salary of $128,207 per year, and despite putting in very few hours at the school, manages to collect overtime. PS 106 is a Title 1 school, so it gets extra federal funds. How those funds are allocated is a mystery, shrouded from the public by Obama-esque transparency.

Clearly the funds are insufficient, or kids wouldn’t be watching cartoons in rat-infested trailers instead of learning. Education funding much be increased to the point that useless educrats like Sills can live in the opulence to which they have become accustomed, with enough left over to at least buy a few books.

Alternatively, we could get inherently corrupt and inefficient Big Government as far away from education as possible. But union-funded Democrats would never go for that.
