"....confirmed that, because 'a large percentage of the staff did not support her,' during a faculty conference, Principal Chalmers told her staff, en masse, that "if she went down, everyone [would] go down with [her].....is substantiated." Investigator Manuel Lassalatta was on the case, and the report was signed and approved by OSI Director Candace McLaren and Mr. Lassalatta;
other substantiated charges were: Chalmers violated Chancellor's Regulation A-660 by authorizing the expenditure of Title 1 Parent Involvement funds without obtaining proper PA membership approval; she violated Chancellor's Regulation A-610 by allowing parents and a parent of a former student to sell snacks without her written authorization; she violated Chancellor's Regulation A-812 by allowing parents and a parent of a former student to sell approved and unapproved food items inside the cafeteria on a daily basis; and she committed employee misconduct by allowing and , who are neither staff members nor relatives of current X132 students, and who never passed OPI background checks, to sell snacks to students inside X132 on a regular basis.
Superintendent Dolores Esposito determined that Principal Chalmers-Reilly's punishment would be a letter to file. (see letter, above). I believe that this shows, beyond a shadow of doubt, the unfair disparate treatment that teachers must deal with as opposed to principals and/or Superintendents inside the NYC Department of Education. Teachers cannot make the DOE "look bad" at any time, for any reason. See my article about Francesco Portelos and Lydia Howrilka, David Pakter, and Christine Rubino, to name a few. All the people to whom I have shown the video "GANG GIRL" and the Surrender photo above, have said the same thing, "OMG - this person is a principal in a NYC elementary school? "
Think about the double standard of the New York City Department of Education, where a teacher who taps a child on the shoulder and says "good job!" or, "Let's get back to work!" is brought to 3020-a for termination by the Gotcha Squad. Please continue to send me and media outlets such as the NY POST stories like this one so we all - parents, teachers, staff - can expose this pattern of lawlessness at the NYC DOE. DOE, I hope you pay for the dental work for Haifa Soto's son!!!!
