My year of terror and abuse teaching at a NYC high school

Boland opens the book with a typical morning in freshman history class.

A teenage girl named Chantay sits on top of her desk, thong peeking out of her pants, leading a ringside gossip session. Work sheets have been distributed and ignored.

“Chantay, sit in your seat and get to work — now!” Boland says.

  • If this mincing white First-Worlder had the vision, he would have suggested that these hard-cases be forced to work the crappiest jobs for a week before returning to the classroom. Warn them that any deviation meant they had to return to those jobs.

    The end result: more literate thugs.

    • FactsWillOut

      No boss would be willing to put up with their crap.

      • Picking cotton the nineteenth century way?

        I think they would try.

        • FactsWillOut

          Well, you didn’t say we could whip them.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Ding, ding, ding…
      We have a winnah!

      Yeah, assuming that these little chocolate snowflakes were made literate, how the heck is that going to turn them into the next Thomas Sowell? They will simply be well read thugs, and I’m not so sure that’s any improvement.

      • The next best solution is to put them on the ground in Syria.

    • The solution is simple. Unfortunately it is not PC.

      1) Get rid of the trouble makers. All they do, is make it so, those who want to learn, cannot. (The trouble makers do not have the right to stop the education of those wanting to learn.)

      2) For those who want to learn, get them the resources they need. Most important here, is a good teacher.

      3) Make a “special” place for the trouble makers. A place where their disruptive behavior will not interfere with those wanting to learn.

      The policy of “mainstreaming” everyone is absurd. It clearly victimizes students who want to learn.

      A few rotten apples removed from the box will save the entire case. Even if you have to remove 80% to save 20% it is better than a completely rotten box.

  • FactsWillOut

    The answer?
    Military style boarding school with daily beatings until discipline is restored.

    • Alain

      Beatings would not even be required in a true boot-camp style school. There are plenty of other ways to get their attention. I think they should be required for the majority of youth nowadays.

      • FactsWillOut

        from the sounds of things, they would need to be physically disciplined, but after that, yes, digging latrines and doing push-ups definitely builds character.

        • Alain

          No work, no food. That works.

        • Richard_Romano

          It looks like all of these students come from broken homes and thus they hate authority and won’t respect it, in any form. My guess is that only the harshest of conditions will rectify it, perhaps military boarding school is the answer. The teacher is a wimp — a helpless liberal whose worldview was discredited right in front of his eyes, but he fails to connect the dots. Pathetic.

          • Alain

            The “broken homes” or father unknown are a gift from the Democrats.

    • john700

      Do you think that will increase their IQ to the non-animal level?

      • FactsWillOut

        It worked on soldiers.

        • john700

          Black soldiers?

          • FactsWillOut

            Well, one can tame dogs.

          • john700

            Are you insulting dogs now? Are you a Muslim? hehehehe
            By the way, dogs that are very aggresive and not well-behaved are usually euthanized. Let’s drop it. As the white race is vanishing, one of these students might be a world leader.

          • Alain

            I think one already claims to be by the name of Obama.

        • Justin St.Denis

          I can tell you have absolutely no “inside” military experience – or respect for the men and women who serve their country. In point of fact, there is NO ROOM in today’s military for anyone stupid.

          • FactsWillOut

            I served in the 80’s.
            There is room for everybody.
            Compulsory service is a good idea.

    • canminuteman

      The answer is to get rid of compulsory public education, and welfare. If you don’t work, you don’t eat and if you are to stupid to at least learn to read,write and count, it’s not our problem.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        From the sounds of it, these kids get to eat far too much.

  • The Butterfly

    How can these people afford to live in New York?

    • Clink9

      Welfare.

      • The Butterfly

        Must be nice.

        • Clink9

          Like animals in a zoo. But they hate the hand that feeds them.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    “He went home to his then-boyfriend (now-husband) and celebrated over takeout pad Thai and an expensive bottle of red wine.”
    Somehow, the thought of this deluded homo sobbing in Hubby’s (sic) arms when his comfortable illusions were getting the shit kicked out of them doesn’t move me to sympathy one teensy bit. Hard hearted I am.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I don’t know, I had pad Thai last night (without the homosexual underpinnings) and it was pretty good!

    • john700

      Do you realize what spicy food (Thai) does to your asshole? Must be a recipe for extra pleasure for these guys.

      By the way, when I was in highschool, having a homosexual teacher was out of the question. He would have got a much worse treatment than what this guy got from the monkeys.

      • David

        In a 1966 class someone wrote on the chalk board,” Mr. Powers plays the skin flute.” To his credit he read it, rubbed it out and carried on with the class.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          What else could he do?

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          Nowadays I suppose the whole class would get dragged off to Maoist style re-education, i.e. “sensitivity training”, that would no doubt include applauding Mr Powers while he played his instrument of choice.
          You know, (OT) around the same time, we had a very hot science teacher all the boys were drooling for. One day, a young rapscallion (who shall remain nameless) brought in a wood screw in his pocket, and, pretending to find it on the floor, handed it to Miss K., saying, “Want a screw?”. She just blushed and looked flustered, but I wonder about nowadays.

    • canminuteman

      I must be getting more liberal in my old age. Its the drinking red wine with pad tai that grosses me out. The correct beverage choice would be a nice cold German lager.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        I confess he also kind of lost me at that point. Wine of any sort goes very badly with any Asian food; it’s lager or nothing, my friends. Not necessarily German; Tai, Chinese and Japanese lagers are all excellent.

        • canminuteman

          Chinese and Japanese breweries had significant German input. Tsingtao brewery was built by Germans, and Asahi brewery employed German POW’s during WW1. There is a good reason why Asian beers are stylistically like German beers.

  • David Murrell

    I have taught at university for 33 years (soon to retire). When I would encounter an infrequent jerk-punk, I would give them one warning, and if that didn’t work, I would boot them permanently out of the class. This approach caused some consternation and bewielderment amongst deans and senior administration administrators, but there you go. My system worked.

    The posted article is a real eye-opener of pc bureaucratic dumbness. No just the gay writer’s dumbness for moving to a black school, but Bill Gates money supporting this sewer. But then again, these brain-dead students are part of Obama’s voting constituency.

    • Richard_Romano

      I’m a prof myself — I don’t tolerate the fools who refuse to learn. What I do is give them enough rope and sooner or later, they hang themselves, i.e., they fail. I also don’t let these things bother me — in due time, these types will learn, either in the real world or from a stint in prison. Sounds harsh, but it is the kind of discipline and learning experience that they require.

      Best wishes to you in your retirement!

    By the way, near this story NY Post published this:

    Are these New York values too?

  • Sid Falco

    What Would Jesus Do ? – yell “Bolan’, who you ballin’? It ain’t no chick.”

    No place for mincing do-gooders like this teacher at the bottom of the foodchain. Their feral cunning would have identified him as a woofter within 5 minutes.

  • Spatchcocked

    our gay instructor was delusional and still is…….the recidivist human dreck he describes as a shock to his awareness of the culture he lives in is pathetic…..everyone knows most blacks are pretty well ruined….a truly hopeless criminal class….has been so for thirty years.
    For him to express shock and surprise at this means he had no awareness and therefore nothing to contribute…..
    The book he’s pimping is just gossip inquirer sensationalist now it can be told opportunism….he’s out to make a buck.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Send them to join ISIS or some African cannibal warlord or who gives a fuck.

  • canminuteman

    I wonder what demographic Chantay belongs to?

    Actually, no I don’t.
