PS 90 Principal and AP Yanked From the School and Under Investigation

 Greta Hawkins. Teflon Principal. Politically connected enough to Mayor Mike Bloomberg to get a photo op with him on a merry-go-round:

Greta Hawkins and Mike Bloomberg (they look so cute together!)
Finally gone.

Why did the NY Daily News cut Mike Bloomberg out of their picture? Inquiring minds want to know.

Brooklyn principal pulled from school amid misconduct investigation: education officials

Published: Friday, May 15, 2015


A notorious Brooklyn principal has been yanked from her school amid a misconduct investigation, city education officials said.

District 21 Superintendent Isabel DiMola told parents in a letter on Thursday that teacher Greta Hawkins and an assistant principal had been reassigned from Public School 90 in Coney Island.

Officials said Hawkins is the subject of a misconduct investigation but would not provide details. A school staffer said Hawkins was being probed for failing to adhere to mandated reporting regulations.

Hawkins grabbed headlines for refusing to let students sing “God Bless the U.S.A.” and a bizarre bathroom policy that awarded students extra credit for not using the toilet.

Public school principals are mandated to report on a variety of incidents and data to city school officials including incidents involving students.

A veteran of city schools, Hawkins - a former teacher - came to P.S. 90 in 2009 and immediately clashed with school workers. She was slapped with a disciplinary letter in 2010 after making remarks at a meeting that offended staffers.

She’ll continue to draw her salary of $124,116 while she’s being investigated.

Hawkins, 50, did not respond to a request for comment
