The DOE Puts John Adams High School Staff And Students At Risk Due To Bedbug Infestation.



























The DOE will always claim that they put children first when it comes to the health and safety of the students.  However, with a lax student discipline policy and the widespread use of cellphones in the schools, bullying and theft is a serious problem.  Moreover,  both students and staff feel increasingly unsafe in their schools as student suspension rates plummet and weapon confiscations increase as student misbehavior is not punished.  Finally, at John Adams High School, a Renewal School,  the DOE chose to keep the school open for the last week, despite a bedbug infestation at the school that could endanger the health and welfare of the people at the school.

Parents. students, and teachers alike were terrified not only from getting bit by the bedbugs but carrying them home to their own families.  Yet, the DOE ignored their fears and kept the school open the rest of the week, thereby, endangering the health and welfare of the students and staff and by extension their families.

The DOE administrators who allowed the school to remain open last week, despite the documented bedbug infestation,  should be punished and even lose their jobs for potentially putting the school students and staff at risk for serious health and welfare problems. Then again, under Chancellor Carmen Farina, the DOE administrators are not held accountable for their poor decisions, even when it affects the health and welfare of the students they are supposed to protect.

chaz you say the school should have been closed but we all know that the NYSHITTY school is a gigantic babysitting service! safety and sense takes a back seat to making sure the irresponsible parents have a place to DUMP the kids for a meal a warm place to hangout.

There's another school in Bklyn that notified staff that bedbugs have been spotted in the school...I dont know if it's an infestation. How many do you need to detect before a school should be closed?

About 6-7 years ago I spent a couple thousand dollars between getting new mattresses and an exterminator. Bedbugs are no joke.

The teachers at John Adams are mostly "newbies" and keep quiet While the few veteran teachers learned long ago to stay under the radar and never complain. The result is the abuses are frequent and never addressed.

The veteran teachers are being targeted and brought up on fraudulent charges.

Bed bug infestation is code for UFT holiday party.

Last year in early June we had a bedbug infestation at our school. One classroom was even quarantined. The parents were not notified. The admins made us to understand through dirty looks and cold denials to our faces that we not to talk about it.

The bedbugs started to spread room to room. The admins wanted to keep it quiet hoping we could make it to summer vacation when they could have it cleaned without the public knowing. The kids were at risk, but as another poster pointed out, most of our staff were newbies and were afraid to say anything. In such an environment, even a veteran shuts up. With the Danielson 'target' ever present, it's just not worth it to speak up anymore.

Does anyone know the ATR supervisor Andre Barret?
Did he actually rate anyone Satisfactory?

Grace Zwillenberg was a fat, vulgar slob. Of course, every woman well over 300 lbs. should wear dresses with a slit up to the thigh and sit in chairs with her legs up on another chair, shoes off, the better to show off how classy she---ain't. She often made sexual innuendo remarks to female teachers about male teachers. It was an annual event during Regents week that the science department would find it lacked sufficient copies of the Regents exam and then her pet lackey teacher (who she later sent to admin school to become the APO) would jump in his car to go beg some extras off other schools. She was incompetent as a science AP, which then qualified her of course to become principal. She was replaced by a vicious, vindictive black woman as AP who was also incompetent and turned the department into the laughingstock of the school. People still laugh, years later about the horrible, laughable "model lesson" she put on for her department. She was also promoted to principal of some Bronx school! I guess incompetence in a lesser position is a prerequisite for how DOE chooses principals.

Zwillenberg was a miserable principal and was later investigated by SCI for chasing men on the internet during school hours. Her school computer was actually confiscated as evidence. After all, she hardly left her office to see what was going on in the school. Her pet lackey teacher, now APO, basically ran the school. Must have been some fine-looking men on that internet. During all this, she divorced her teacher husband. Rumor had it she was disappointed in him for not having climbed the administrative ladder. Later, when John Adams was reorganized, the incompetent principal Zwillenberg was again rewarded for same by getting a plum job with the Children First network! Your tax dollars at work, folks.
