Because shielding students from truth and reality is more far more effective in preparing them for the "real" world.
We need more teachers like Nazario to reduce the spread of "sissy" syndrome.
South Bronx middle school teacher fined,
but will keep job after showing ISIS decapitation video to class
A Bronx middle school teacher who terrified and sickened her students by showing an ISIS decapitation video in class was slapped with a $300 fine, education department officials said.
Longtime South Bronx Academy for Applied Media teacher Alexiss Nazario aired the shocking video in October 2014 for her eighth grade students.
When the city education department caught wind of the showing they took such a dim view of it that they tried to fire Nazario. Education officials yanked Nazario from the classroom and assigned her to administrative tasks away from kids.
Nazario then languished in "reassignment" until November 2015. The independent arbitrator presiding over Nazario's case refused to fire her but hit her with a $300 fine after finding that Nazario "made a mistake in not previewing the video and failing to inform the principal or getting her permission to show it."
Nazario is currently assigned to the city's traveling corps of substitute teachers.
Nazario started at the DOE in 1988 and started at the South Bronx Academy for Applied Media in 2008.
She continues to draw her salary of $105,142.
