The DOE Failure To Take Action Against Willian Cullen Bryant's Administration Smacks Of Corruption.
Here will go again. The New York Post published a report showing how the school administration stiffed their students and failed to pay them for summer work to fix and upgrade the school's computer system after promising to pay them for their work. When the Chancellor was contacted by two students complaining they were stiffed, the DOE's response was to send the emails back to the Principal who scheduled a discipline hearing and put the two students at risk, just incredible! The DOE informed the Post that they are now investigating the accusation, why not when the accusations happened?. How many DOE investigations are there on William Cullen Bryant High School and why is Principal Namita Dwarka still in charge? The answer is simple, the DOE investigations are corrupt!
William Cullen High School has seen a mass exodus of veteran teachers leave the school through retirement, resignation, and the few lucky ones who transferred to other schools despite their salary. The school's teaching staff mainly consist of inexperienced teachers and in some subjects like Earth Science are not certified to teach the subject. Furthermore,due to the administrative actions students passing the Regents physical Sconces (Earth Science, Chemistry, and Physics) have dropped 20 points in the last few years. If I look at the rest of the subjects, I'm sure there are similar drops.
When it comes to Principal Namita Dwarka the list of accusations against her are mind boggling as she continues to run this once great school into the ground. Yet the DOE has repeatedly failed to take any action against her or remove her for the sake of the students and staff alike. This is just another case of the DOE's corrupt investigation process when it comes to disciplining favored administrators.
