On leave….

Well think what you may a person is innocent until proven guilty. Of course not in Oak Park, IL when a teacher is given a “leave” under “unspecified allegations” ..wow.  Great wording so if the person is guilty, we think “knew it” because such wording strengths our bias, if they are innocent this statement still affirms that the person is guilty of something. And when it comes to kids we always think the worse i.e.: referencing gossip in a letter to parents always helps create MORE gossip than it should.

It seems to me that is how Oak Park, IL deals with a situation like this: 1. tell everyone not to gossip, 2. keep everyone in the dark and 3. then go on like nothing has happened… these are the leaders making decisions to help educate the next generation people! Racism in the school? Let’s shoot out a letter saying there’s no racism in Oak Park, IL, then everyone, move on. Poof problem solved. Not saying the teacher is guilty or not, but this does not help with this situation or if any scenario any of us thought of in regard to this person being placed on leave in the future. I mean, it could something as tedious as lying about certification, to knocking little old ladies down in the park. Fueling the imagination and dealing with it in an unprofessional manner does not help the situation at all. But rarely in Oak Park, IL when the shit the fan does anyone act with any sense. Of course, we may say that happens anywhere, but that too also adds to the problem not solve it.

New teacher, new class hopefully more time for teh Oak Park, IL blog

Hopefully, with my new teacher, I will have more time for the Oak Park, Il blog the constant rewrites I had to do for the last class was insane. All I have to say that when I complete the program I am dusting her ass in this blog. That teacher was like the self-important people here in Oak park, Il the world is a positive place so long as it revolves around them and nothing else.

As long as everyone conforms to what they want, for me it was the only time I could escape from Oak Park, Il was when I went drinking recently with my girls in Chicago (Lakeview) or when I go to work. And the latter I am still dealing with whiny bitches who try to force you into a mold of what they believe you should be and nothing else.

So much for America and being American, an individual all that in this village and in that class is not wanted nor required to meet “standards” oh I am so glad to be free and hopefully I will be free of this hellhole too.
