James Brown Is Back Once Again.
It has come to my attention that James Brown is back on the DOE payroll. Now he is assistant Superintendent under the infamous Juan Mendez. For the uninformed, James Brown was an administrator on Long Island in Baldwin and was found guilty by a jury in a civil complaint of harassment and retaliation and cost the school money to settle the case.
Mr. Brown was removed from the Baldwin school in 2009 and was sent to the District office, away from the children, until he resigned in 2012. Mr. Brown was also accused of saying sexually inappropriate comments. While at Baldwin, Brown was accused of remarking on the tightness of a female student’s pants, said a federal lawsuit against him. He also said to the female dean to make a school report “tight as a virgin’s, well, you know what is tight on a virgin,” she reported.
In September 2013 a new Principal was appointed for the troubled Flushing High School and it was the one and only James Brown . In a Walcott administration that claimed "zero tolerance" for sexual issues, James Brown was hired despite his past. You can read it Here.
Mr. Brown lasted all of one year before being replaced and ended up in a DOE back office before leaving for the charter schools and most people thought that was the end of James Brown.
Fast forward to 2018 and James Brown is now assistant superintendent for Juan Mendez. How the hell did he get back into the DOE?
