    Teachers Quitting NYC School Where Principal Barred Kids From Singing “God Bless the USA,” Told Staff “I’m Black. Your Previous Principal Was White. More Of Us Are Coming”…

    In a mass exodus, 25 employees — or 40 percent of the staff, including 11 of 28 classroom teachers, aides, secretaries and custodians — have fled PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, over the year, insiders tallied.

    Most found jobs in other schools; some retired. Others are trying to escape a “toxic building,” they said.

    Principal Greta Hawkins caused an uproar in June when she axed the rousing Lee Greenwood anthem from the kindergarten moving-up ceremony.

    The hostility goes back to a June 2010 staff meeting, where Hawkins reportedly announced: “I’m black. Your previous principal was white and Jewish. More of us are coming.”

    Despite a DOE reprimand, the atmosphere worsened. “It all went downhill after that. She wanted revenge,” a staffer said.

    MSNBC has ruined another journalist! What a shame!

    NBC’s Todd: After Creating ‘Economic Havoc,’ House GOP ‘Partied and Got Drunk’ in Israel

    Appearing on Monday’s NBC Today, political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd used reports of a Republican congressman skinny dipping during a 2011 trip to Israel to slam the GOP: “…a bunch of freshman House Republicans who came to Washington trying to stop things…create this confrontation with the President over the debt ceiling…created all sorts of economic havoc….they partied, got drunk and one of them went skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee.”
