"Persistently Dangerous" is a Label no Principal Wants, and All Hide

What Principals and the Office of Special Investigations do when there is a violent incident involving students, is file a report that makes the teacher the perpetrator, so that the school does NOT get reported to New York State and put into the VADIR list.

The teacher is then put onto suspension for causing harm to a child, and then brought to 3020-a to be removed from the school.

If this makes sense to you, then...

DOE Kept Info on 'Dangerous' UWS School Secret, Officials Say

UPPER WEST SIDE — After the state department of education labeled a neighborhood school  "persistently dangerous," local leaders claimed the city mismanaged the entire process — from hiding the data and advising the principal not to appeal the designation to not informing parents.
P.S. 191, a K-8 school on West 61st Street, was deemed "persistently dangerous" this summer by the state Education Department, which took into account incidents reported by the school over the last two years, officials said. 
At the end of the 2013-2014 school year, the number of incidents reported at P.S. 191 and their severity forced state officials to warn the city Department of Education that it could be designated a "persistently dangerous school" (PDS) if the pattern repeated itself the following year.
