Further Proof Of Why Chancellor Dennis Walcott Is A Hypocrite When It Comes To Disciplining Teachers & Administrators.

It now turns out that ex-Principal John Chase Jr. of Bronxwood Academy was subject to a new Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) investigation when the parents of a 15 year old freshman girl called the police because the ex-principal tried to apparently solicit an improper relationship with her.  According to the New York Post article in today's paper, John Chase Jr, told the girl not to go to her guidance counselor but to him with her problems.  He was alleged to have seen her alone and called her "special" and he was "watching her".  The girl became scared and the police were contacted.

What did the Chancellor say about removing the pervy Principal?  You got it, the Chancellor claimed that John Chase Jr. was demoted to Assistant Principal because of his poor testing results on Regents.  Just unbelievable!  Better yet, according to the New York Post article, the Chancellor said the following:

On the new allegation, he said, “Just because an accusation is made doesn’t mean a person is guilty.”

Wait a second, is this the same Chancellor who said that he believes sixteen teachers should have been fired based upon accusations that failed to hold up as evidence in the independent Arbitration process?  What a hypocrite the Chancellor is.  Furthermore, why wasn't the Special Commissioner of Investigations (SCI) called in after the police were contacted?  Instead it went to the more compliant OEO group, why I ask?

To the Chancellor, you are a first class hypocrite and anything you say can not be believed by any educated person.

The ex-principal Chase came from Bronxdale HS, not Bronxwood.

Yes there is a double standard when it comes to administrators who just get a slap on the wrist.

Great job in citing the double standards!
Actually, Chase is having an AP spot reserved for him. He lost his principalship but he's still an administrator.
