I asked this morning, when will the principal who lusted for office machinery be gone? And the answer came just hours later.
In a closed-door meeting with staff earlier today, the principal of Bronxdale Academy, John Chase, announced that he’d had it, and would be out by the end of the week.
The DOE will doubtlessly claim that the notoriety of the case caused such disruption that it would be better for all…
But we know better. Chase’s victims refused to be afraid. They, and their supporters, refused to quit. They went to the UFT. They went to politicians. They went to Albany. They went to the streets.
And even after the headlines died down, they persevered. And today, they won. We all did. Thanks to all those who played their parts.
