Public School Education Will Change. How and To What is Up In The Air

 


The information about public school education and in particular, the NYC Department of Education, is bad for the children who are entering or in the system already. This is a fact, and all the attempted coverups by the Chancellor, Mayor, Diana Ravich, and parent leaders who get public money or have a vested interest in supporting the NYC DOE cannot hide from parents that the NYC DOE does not provide what their children need and indeed, may even lead to their harm.

NYC Department of Education Crashes and Burns With the Case of a Student Given Fake Report Cards But Never Registered


We have been speaking out from the inside as parent and teacher advocates for many years about this. My four children attended the NYC public schools from 1996 to 2010 as I uncovered the bad stuff at the NYC DOE and there were several terrible retaliatory actions taken against them that I had to fight.

We have written on this blog about the lack of transparency, environmental hazards, wrongful terminations, and missing resources many times, so any reader will recognize where we stand. But no matter what anyone in New York City or the world believes, there is a certain fact that is universal: change is happening.

The post below about parents withdrawing their children from the NYC DOE is a beginning of a New Way, whatever that may end up to be. What happens when there are fewer seats filled in classrooms (called "seat time")? ...the funding to the school dries up. Teachers have to be let go. How are tenured teachers removed from payroll? A buy-out or disciplinary charges (3020-a arbitration). Most often, a principal chooses the latter and finds a child who will complain that a teacher touched him/her, verbally abused him/her, or did something terrible and affected his/her emotional state. Getting a teacher reassigned is actually very easy.

The hard part is building a system that has billions of dollars AND adequate safeguards and accountability to make sure that all dollars are spent on the "right people, places, and resources."

We are far from that goal.

City Says 43,000 Students Have Left NYC Public School System This Year


Gothamist, January 27, 2021

Enrollment in New York City’s public schools this year has dropped 4% with the exodus of about 43,000 students from the system, including a 9% decrease in kindergarten enrollment alone, according to the city’s Department of Education.

In a pattern seen in many major school districts across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the ongoing decline in public school enrollment in New York City, which also reflected falling birth rates, the DOE said in a press release Wednesday.

While New York City still has the largest school district in the country, enrollment now stands at 960,000 students compared to the reported 1.1 million students in the 2018-2019 school year. Other school districts have seen similar declines in enrollment -- Dallas public schools were down 4% in December, according to the New York Times. In October, Washington state reported a 2.82% decrease in enrollment statewide, with a 14% drop in kindergarten, NPR reported.

Enrollment is a crucial factor in determining funding for the city's schools, particularly when it comes to state aid. But education department officials said, with federal funding and the state budget still in flux, it's too soon to tell how it will affect how much money goes to the city's public schools next year. Still, the declining enrollment numbers will mean many schools will have to return part of their budgets this year if enrollment is less than they expect, though some school leaders are now asking to maintain funding because of additional pandemic costs such as hiring more substitute teachers.

The biggest decline has been in the early childhood education sectors, with 3K enrollment down 8% and pre-K enrollment down 13%. While Mayor Bill de Blasio has made universal Pre-K for every family in the city a major part of his legacy, in New York City school is only mandatory starting in first grade, and earlier programs are optional.

“Similar to other large school districts, non-mandatory early childhood grades are mostly responsible for the enrollment shifts this year. The drop in this grade band represents ~10,000 students, or one percentage point, out of the citywide decline. Last year, DOE enrolled ~14,400 new pre-K students over the summer and early fall, compared this year to ~10,800 students enrolled after the application period. This could be COVID-19 related enrollment loss as these grades are not mandatory and families may be trying to limit travel and socially distance,” the DOE said.

The city was also rolling out more 3K programs though the expansion was paused last year because of budget issues from the pandemic. Interested parents still have time to enroll in 3K and pre-K programs for this year, the DOE said.

Elementary grades also all registered declining enrollment this year: Kindergarten enrollment declined by 9%, 1st grade declined by 6%, 2d grade declined by 8%, 3nrd grade declined by 4%, 4th grade enrollment declined by 6%, and 5th grade enrollment declined by 5%.

Middle school enrollment varied by grade level: 6th grade enrollment declined by 3% and 7th grade enrollment declined by 5% while 8th grade enrollment remained the same.

High school enrollments showed slight fluctuations: 9th grade enrollment declined by 4%, while 10th grade and 11th grade enrollment both increased by 2%, and 12th grade enrollment declined by 1%.

"Given the current circumstances of pandemic it is no surprise that we are seeing greater fluctuations in enrollment this year. However, no school district has stabilized its school system the way we have, which means that we can and will continue to offer the gold standard in health, safety, and learning in a completely transformed educational environment to our students," said DOE spokesperson Katie O’Hanlon in the release.

Freedom of Speech Rights in School: Morse et al., v Frederick

 


The bottom line of all the case law stored in any database on the issue of "What are student/teacher First Amendment rights in school" is that you do not leave your protected right to freedom of speech, assembly and petition at the door.

What they don't say is after you walk in that door, a judge can decide that for a random and  arbitrary reason -depending on your argument and your circumstances - you are denied the rights you thought that you had.

OCTOBER TERM, 2006
MORSE V. FREDERICK


SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

MORSE et al. v. FREDERICK

certiorari to the united states court of appeals for the ninth circuit

No. 06–278. Argued March 19, 2007—Decided June 25, 2007

At a school-sanctioned and school-supervised event, petitioner Morse, the high school principal, saw students unfurl a banner stating “BONG HiTS 4 JESUS,” which she regarded as promoting illegal drug use. Consistent with established school policy prohibiting such messages at school events, Morse directed the students to take down the banner. When one of the students who had brought the banner to the event—respondent Frederick—refused, Morse confiscated the banner and later suspended him. The school superintendent upheld the suspension, explaining, inter alia, that Frederick was disciplined because his banner appeared to advocate illegal drug use in violation of school policy. 

Petitioner school board also upheld the suspension. Frederick filed suit under 42 U. S. C. §1983, alleging that the school board and Morse had violated his First Amendment rights. The District Court granted petitioners summary judgment, ruling that they were entitled to qualified immunity and that they had not infringed Frederick’s speech rights. The Ninth Circuit reversed. Accepting that Frederick acted during a school-authorized activity and that the banner expressed a positive sentiment about marijuana use, the court nonetheless found a First Amendment violation because the school punished Frederick without demonstrating that his speech threatened substantial disruption. It also concluded that Morse was not entitled to qualified immunity because Frederick’s right to display the banner was so clearly established that a reasonable principal in Morse’s position would have understood that her actions were unconstitutional.

Held: Because schools may take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use, the school officials in this case did not violate the First Amendment by confiscating the pro-drug banner and suspending Frederick. Pp. 5–15.

   (a) Frederick’s argument that this is not a school speech case is rejected. The event in question occurred during normal school hours and was sanctioned by Morse as an approved social event at which the district’s student-conduct rules expressly applied. Teachers and administrators were among the students and were charged with supervising them. Frederick stood among other students across the street from the school and directed his banner toward the school, making it plainly visible to most students. Under these circumstances, Frederick cannot claim he was not at school. Pp. 5–6.

   (b) The Court agrees with Morse that those who viewed the banner would interpret it as advocating or promoting illegal drug use, in violation of school policy. At least two interpretations of the banner’s words—that they constitute an imperative encouraging viewers to smoke marijuana or, alternatively, that they celebrate drug use—demonstrate that the sign promoted such use. This pro-drug interpretation gains further plausibility from the paucity of alternative meanings the banner might bear. Pp. 6–8.

   (c) A principal may, consistent with the First Amendment, restrict student speech at a school event, when that speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use. In Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School Dist.393 U. S. 503, the Court declared, in holding that a policy prohibiting high school students from wearing antiwar armbands violated the First Amendment, id., at 504, that student expression may not be suppressed unless school officials reasonably conclude that it will “materially and substantially disrupt the work and discipline of the school,” id., at 513. The Court in Bethel School Dist. No. 403 v. Fraser478 U. S. 675, however, upheld the suspension of a student who delivered a high school assembly speech employing “an elaborate, graphic, and explicit sexual metaphor,” id., at 678. Analyzing the case under Tinker, the lower courts had found no disruption, and therefore no basis for discipline. 478 U. S., at 679–680. This Court reversed, holding that the school was “within its permissible authority in imposing sanctions … in response to [the student’s] offensively lewd and indecent speech.” Id., at 685. Two basic principles may be distilled from Fraser. First, it demonstrates that “the constitutional rights of students in public school are not automatically coextensive with the rights of adults in other settings.” Id., at 682. Had Fraser delivered the same speech in a public forum outside the school context, he would have been protected. See, id., at 682–683. In school, however, his First Amendment rights were circumscribed “in light of the special characteristics of the school environment.” Tinker, supra, at 506. Second, Fraser established that Tinker’s mode of analysis is not absolute, since the Fraser Court did not conduct the “substantial disruption” analysis. Subsequently, the Court has held in the Fourth Amendment context that “while children assuredly do not ‘shed their constitutional rights … at the schoolhouse gate,’ … the nature of those rights is what is appropriate for children in school,” Vernonia School Dist. 47J v. Acton515 U. S. 646, 655–656, and has recognized that deterring drug use by schoolchildren is an “important—indeed, perhaps compelling” interest, id., at 661. Drug abuse by the Nation’s youth is a serious problem. For example, Congress has declared that part of a school’s job is educating students about the dangers of drug abuse, see, e.g., the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1994, and petitioners and many other schools have adopted policies aimed at implementing this message. Student speech celebrating illegal drug use at a school event, in the presence of school administrators and teachers, poses a particular challenge for school officials working to protect those entrusted to their care. The “special characteristics of the school environment,” Tinker, 393 U. S., at 506, and the governmental interest in stopping student drug abuse allow schools to restrict student expression that they reasonably regard as promoting such abuse. Id., at 508, 509, distinguished. Pp. 8–15.

439 F. 3d 1114, reversed and remanded.

   Roberts, C. J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito, JJ., joined. Thomas, J., filed a concurring opinion. Alito, J., filed a concurring opinion, in which Kennedy, J., joined. Breyer, J., filed an opinion concurring in the judgment in part and dissenting in part. Stevens, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which Souter and Ginsburg, JJ., joined.

Talking Points - Morse v. Frederick

Question: Do school authorities violate the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment by restricting student speech at a school-supervised event when the speech may be viewed as promoting illegal drug use?

1. Do school officials have the authority to restrict student speech that they perceive as harmful to other students?

Morse

Affirmative. Yes.

Although students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate,” school administrators must have the ability to restrict speech that is harmful to other students, in this instance promoting illegal drug use. Frederick displayed his banner at a school event. It was the duty of the principal to take action against him.

Frederick

Negative. No. 

Students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Here, a student was punished only because his message was deemed unpopular/controversial by school principal Morse. The banner did not disrupt the school-related event. The principal’s actions were based solely on opposition to the content of the banner, and the First Amendment protects against such acts of censorship.

2. If the banner could be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use, do schools have a compelling interest in preventing such messages at school-supervised events?

Morse

Affirmative. Yes.

Illegal drug use can have serious adverse consequences on users, including death. The school has a responsibility to discourage the use of illegal drugs. Frederick was advocating illegal drug use. The state has a compelling interest in preventing such messages. Even if Frederick’s message were nonsensical, it could easily be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use – “bong hits.” Thus, the school’s compelling interests remain.

Frederick

Negative. No. 

The “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” banner did not explicitly promote illegal drug use. It is a nonsensical phrase. Any interpretations are a result of the viewer’s perceptions. Even if the banner did have a pro-drug message, Frederick, was not engaging in illegal conduct. The state may not censor his message simply because it is unpopular. Afterall, how could one advocate for change in the law if one cannot advocate for making something legal that currently is illegal?

3. Should student speech be restricted if it can be interpreted as a distasteful, school-endorsed message?

Morse

Affirmative. Yes.

Perceptions by others can have a role to play in restricting speech. The term “bong hits” is usually associated with illegal drug use and schools have a compelling interest in preventing a student from advocating illegal drug use. The fact that Frederick displayed the banner at a school event gives the school reason to remove it so that no one would think that the school either explicitly or implicitly endorsed its message.

Frederick

Negative. No. 

Speech should not be restricted simply because it can be misinterpreted by others. If this is the criteria for restricting speech, then all speech can potentially be restricted since speech can easily be misconstrued. This interpretation would drastically undermine the protections of the First Amendment. No third party would seriously think that the school was endorsing Frederick’s message.

4. Does the First Amendment only protect the expression of coherent or rational thoughts?

Morse

Affirmative. Yes.

The First Amendment’s protection of freedom of speech is meant to promote the spread of ideas. As such, it only protects coherent or rational thoughts. Nonsensical speech is not protected by the First Amendment or, at least, is given less protection than rational speech. Even if Frederick’s speech were simply nonsensical, Morse could have restricted it without violating the First Amendment.

Frederick

Negative. No. 

Nonsensical speech is protected by the First Amendment. The principal does not have the right to determine what speech is or is not protected by the First Amendment. Under most circumstances, the First Amendment gives individuals the right to say whatever they wish so long as they are not harming others or interfering with their rights. No one was harmed by Frederick’s actions.

5. Should school officials be immune from legal liability when they take actions in good faith to protect other students from what they consider offensive speech?

Morse

Affirmative. Yes.

School principals have to act in real-time and respond to events as they arise. A principal is not a constitutional lawyer and does not know the nuances of the First Amendment. Even if Frederick’s speech was protected by the First Amendment, when a principal acts in good faith to protect other students, the principal should be given immunity from civil suits for such actions.

Frederick

Negative. No. 

Those who violate the constitutional rights of others, even inadvertently, must not be immune from the consequences of their actions. Such violations restrict constitutional rights and violators must be held accountable. Therefore, Morse should be held accountable for violating Frederick’s rights and compensate him as the law demands.

Law School Case Brief

Morse v. Frederick - 551 U.S. 393, 127 S. Ct. 2618 (2007)

RULE:

The Supreme Court has held that the constitutional rights of students in public school are not automatically coextensive with the rights of adults in other settings and that the rights of students must be applied in light of the special characteristics of the school environment. Consistent with these principles, the Supreme Court holds that schools may take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use.

FACTS:

At a school-sanctioned and school-supervised event, petitioner Morse, the high school principal, saw students unfurl a banner stating "BONG HiTS 4 JESUS," which she regarded as promoting illegal drug use. Consistent with established school policy prohibiting such messages at school events, Morse directed the students to take down the banner. When one of the students who had brought the banner to the event--respondent Frederick--refused, Morse confiscated the banner and later suspended him. The school superintendent upheld the suspension, explaining, inter alia, that Frederick was disciplined because his banner appeared to advocate illegal drug use in violation of school policy. Petitioner school board also upheld the suspension. Frederick filed suit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that the school board and Morse had violated his First Amendment rights. The District Court granted petitioners summary judgment, ruling that they were entitled to qualified immunity and that they had not infringed Frederick's speech rights. The Ninth Circuit reversed. Accepting that Frederick acted during a school-authorized activity and that the banner expressed a positive sentiment about marijuana use, the court nonetheless found a First Amendment violation because the school punished Frederick without demonstrating that his speech threatened substantial disruption. It also concluded that Morse was not entitled to qualified immunity because Frederick's right to display the banner was so clearly established that a reasonable principal in Morse's position would have understood that her actions were unconstitutional.

ISSUE:

Did the school officials violate the First Amendment by confiscating the pro-drug banner and suspending the Frederick?

ANSWER:

No.

CONCLUSION:

Because schools may take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use, the school officials in this case did not violate the First Amendment by confiscating the pro-drug banner and suspending Frederick.

A principal may, consistent with the First Amendment, restrict student speech at a school event, when that speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use. In Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School Dist., 393 U.S. 503, 89 S. Ct. 733, 21 L.

Ct. 733, 21 L. Ed. 2d 731. The Court in Bethel School Dist. No. 403 v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675, 106 S. Ct. 3159, 92 L. Ed. 2d 549, however, upheld the suspension of a student who delivered a high school assembly speech employing "an elaborate, graphic, and explicit sexual metaphor," id., at 678, 106 S. Ct. 3159, 92 L. Ed. 2d 549. Analyzing the case under Tinker, the lower courts had  found no disruption, and therefore no basis for discipline.

How the Separation of Powers Protects the Bill of Rights

What Does Free Speech Mean?

Among other cherished values, the First Amendment protects freedom of speech. The U.S. Supreme Court often has struggled to determine what exactly constitutes protected speech. The following are examples of speech, both direct (words) and symbolic (actions), that the Court has decided are either entitled to First Amendment protections, or not.

The First Amendment states, in relevant part, that:

“Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.”

Freedom of speech includes the right:

  • Not to speak (specifically, the right not to salute the flag).
    West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943).
  • Of students to wear black armbands to school to protest a war (“Students do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate.”).
    Tinker v. Des Moines, 393 U.S. 503 (1969).
  • To use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages.
    Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971).
  • To contribute money (under certain circumstances) to political campaigns.
    Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1 (1976).
  • To advertise commercial products and professional services (with some restrictions).
    Virginia Board of Pharmacy v. Virginia Consumer Council, 425 U.S. 748 (1976); Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977).
  • To engage in symbolic speech, (e.g., burning the flag in protest).
    Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989); United States v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990).

Freedom of speech does not include the right:

  • To incite actions that would harm others (e.g., “[S]hout[ing] ‘fire’ in a crowded theater.”).
    Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919).
  • To make or distribute obscene materials.
    Roth v. United States, 354 U.S. 476 (1957).
  • To burn draft cards as an anti-war protest.
    United States v. O’Brien, 391 U.S. 367 (1968).
  • To permit students to print articles in a school newspaper over the objections of the school administration. 
    Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 484 U.S. 260 (1988).
  • Of students to make an obscene speech at a school-sponsored event.
    Bethel School District #43 v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675 (1986).
  • Of students to advocate illegal drug use at a school-sponsored event.

Dr. Lester W. Young, Jr.

Board of Regents Elects Dr. Lester W. Young, Jr. as Chancellor

Regent Young Has More Than 50 Years of Experience in Public Education

Regent Young is First African American to Serve as Chancellor

The Board of Regents today unanimously elected Dr. Lester W. Young, Jr. as Chancellor, the first African American to serve in this position, the State Education Department announced. As Chancellor, Dr. Young will lead and serve as the presiding officer of the Board of Regents, which is responsible for the general supervision of all educational activities within the State, presiding over the University and the New York State Education Department. Dr. Young will assume his new role on January 12.

“Regent Young’s vast experience in education and unwavering commitment to improving the lives of disadvantaged students make him an exceptional choice to be Chancellor of the Board of Regents,” Vice Chancellor T. Andrew Brown said. “As Chair of the P-12 Committee, Regent Young has helped shape policy affecting New York’s 2.6 million schoolchildren and uniquely positions him to lead the Board of Regents in this unprecedented time when the state’s stark inequities are more apparent now than ever. I congratulate Regent Young and look forward to all he will accomplish in his new role.”

“Having worked with Regent Young for many years in our various roles in New York City and on the Board of Regents, I know there is no one more committed to achieving educational equity for all New York’s children,” Interim Commissioner Betty A. Rosa said. “Time and time again, Regent Young has demonstrated his courage, determination and steadfast obligation to helping our underserved populations rise above their circumstances and thrive in life. Through his decades of experience at all levels of education, he has earned the respect of New York’s education community and helped countless individuals. Regent Young brings immense knowledge, wholehearted passion and unmatched expertise to his new role and the Board is fortunate to have him as its new leader. I look forward to partnering with Regent Young in his new role, and the entire board of Regents, to advance equity in education for all children.”

Regent Young said, “I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Board, Interim Commissioner Rosa, the entire Education Department team, all New York state educators and, in particular, all of our families as we work to build more equitable and empowering futures for all New York’s students."  

Dr. Young has served as a Regent member since 2008. He has made creating opportunities “where every student can be successful” the guiding principle of his more than 50 years of public service. He began his career with the New York City Department of Education, holding positions as: Teacher, Guidance Counselor, Supervisor of Special Education and Principal. During his tenure as Principal, PS 183 Brooklyn (Ocean-Hill Brownsville), was recognized as a School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education (USDOE) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED) in 1987.

Dr. Young also served as Assistant and Associate Commissioner with the NYSED (1988- 1993) and led the department’s efforts in New York City. Dr. Young’s portfolio included statewide leadership responsibility for the Offices of School Improvement, Community Schools, Bilingual Education, and Migrant Services and Education.

In 1993, returning to his Brooklyn roots, Dr. Young was appointed to the position of Community Superintendent, CSD 13. As Superintendent, Dr. Young is credited for establishing two successful and highly sought-after schools (Benjamin Banneker Academy HS and Bedford Academy HS) as well as replicating the nationally recognized Algebra Project and Comer School Development Program. In 2000, Chancellor Harold Levy appointed Dr. Young to serve as Senior Superintendent (coordinating services in four Central Brooklyn Community School Districts). He also established and led the first N.Y.C. Office of Youth Development and School Community Services. In 2004, after 35 years of NYC public school service, Lester W. Young, Jr. retired from the NYCDOE.

UFT Solidarity Member Threatens To Kill Two Federal Court Judges

Victor Jordan, Lydia Howrilka, Lucio Celli, Francesco Portelos, Jonathan Hinesley,
Al Leon, unknown
Opinion-Editorial from Betsy Combier:

Over the past 17 years I have been saddened to see attacks, lies, misinformation, and false charges filed by the NYC Department of Education as well as school districts around NY State against good people who dedicate their lives to educating children and young adults in New York City. By good people I mean individuals who are caring and capable teachers, counselors, tutors, advocates, and administrators, and who have high standards for their own conduct. They all are, after all, role models for young minds.

Lucio Celli
NYC Department of Education teachers Francesco Portelos, Lydia Howrilka, and Lucio Celli are not role models for anyone, in my opinion. 

If you read the UFT Solidarity Mission Statement below, you may come to the same conclusion that I and many others have, namely that the Group is a hate group that destroys anyone who might in the future- or has already - challenged any member for any reason.


Lydia Howrilka followed this Mission Statement and sent defamatory emails to the Principal of her school. She was fired in June 2013, then sued the Department. Principal Urena counter-sued in Federal Court. Here is what Urena's Attorney at the NYC Law Department wrote (Case 1:15-cv-01113-KAM-RER):

Lydia Howrilka          

"COUNTERCLAIMS OF ARISLEYDA URENA AGAINST LYDIA HOWRILKA 

As and for her Counterclaims against Plaintiff/Counterclaim Defendant Lydia Howrilka (“Howrilka”), Arisleyda Urena (“Urena”) alleges as follows: 
Preliminary Statement 
1. This case was brought by Ms. Howrilka as part of a continuing campaign to retaliate against Ms. Urena after Ms. Howrilka’s termination from the   Department of Education. Since her lawful termination, Ms. Howrilka has demonstrated a continuously escalating and alarming course of conduct targeting Ms. Urena and attempting to damage her, both personally and professionally by defaming her online and in email communications with anyone who will listen.  These actions were designed to, and have caused Ms. Urena to suffer from severe emotional distress.   
Background 
2. Ms. Howrilka was a probationary teacher in the New York City public school system, working at the Academy for Language and Technology (“ALT”) in the Bronx, where Ms. Urena was the principal.   
3. Ms. Howrilka experienced significant problems in her employment, as she was unable to successfully complete even the most basic of tasks for a teacher.  For example, on multiple occasions, she found herself unable to handle the class and therefore decided to run out of the classroom crying, abandoning the students.  At first, Ms. Urena covered for Ms. Howrilka but ultimately was instructed to write her up for her unacceptable conduct. 
4. Ms. Howrilka’s behavior continued to spiral out of control until the week of the Regent’s exam when Ms. Howrilka sent a completely inappropriate email to the students,  including the special education students, railing against the administration and blaming Ms. Urena. Ms. Howrilka’s actions disrupted many of the students during the already stressful Regent’s Exam week and led the teachers and staff to the collective conclusion that Ms. Howrilka was a distraction and was harmful to the students. 
5. Ms. Howrilka was ultimately terminated from her position in June 2013.
6. In the wake of her termination, Plaintiff developed an unhealthy fixation on Ms.Urena, blaming Ms. Urena for Ms. Howrilka’s failures as a teacher.  However, rather than address her unfounded complaints through the ordinary channels, Ms. Howrilka instead embarked on a campaign to terrorize, harass, defame, and damage Ms. Urena.  
7. Where Ms. Howrilka had already begun with her completely inappropriate email to the students, she continued to escalate after her termination.  She began emailing every Department of Education (“DOE”) official that she could find an email address for, all for the purpose of defaming and attacking Ms. Urena and damaging her in her profession, and imperiling her employment. 
8. When she didn’t get the results she desired from her email campaign, Ms. Howrilka expanded her scope of attack to the internet, where she published numerous false and defamatory statements about Ms. Urena on various blogs.  In an effort to fraudulently make it appear as if multiple people were complaining about Ms. Urena, Ms. Howrilka made liberal use of false identities.  However, despite these attempts, the reality is that Ms. Howrilka was the only person complaining about Ms. Urena
....
In or around November 2014, Ms. Howrilka, under the shroud of an “anonymous contributor” wrote to the website “Don’t Tread on Educators” (dtoe.org) to nominate Ms. Urena for the “Administrators In Need Of Improvement” list.1  The resulting article, which includes lengthy quotes from Ms. Howrilka, is based entirely based on Ms. Howrilka’s defamatory statements to the blog administrator.  This article contains numerous false and defamatory statements made by Ms. Howrilka against Ms. Urena.
******************************************
In 2015 I wrote about the defamatory comments made by UFT Solidarity. I looked up one Principal, Pauline Shakespeare, and printed out 250 pages of comments that hurt me to read, and I don't know Principal Shakespeare. I betcha most of the people who made the comments don't know her either.

I found out that Principals were reading the garbage about them on the UFT Solidarity site, and using the comments to charge employees at their schools. I suggested that followers of Francesco and UFT Solidarity stop posting anonymous/unproven statements on their website, which angered Francesco, Lydia, Lucio, and the gang so I became the Enemy. He not only went after me, but tried to get my husband, who works for the City of New York, into trouble (this failed). I have been able to experience mobbing first-hand, so I guess I should thank them for giving me the content for a book. See also this excellent book "Mobbing: Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace".

Several Staten Island parents have complained about Francesco, but as soon as they did this Francesco sent an email to all his UFT Solidarity members urging them never to give any help or support to "....students" (he named them) if these children of the parents who criticized him ended up in their class. He also placed the full name and grades of a High School student on his website when he wrote about the misconduct of the Department's VIP, Santiago Tavaras, and was investigated by the Office of Special Investigations and found guilty. He was arrested for posting an article on his website telling educators how to hack into the Department's website and raise their salary. The UFT Chapter leader from IS 49 also filed a police complaint against Francesco after Portelos threatened his girlfriend.

Portelos hacked into this blog in July 2016 and deleted all the articles about 3030-a arbitration in the right column, including the video meeting of Carmen Farina and Mike Mulgrew on February 24, 2015, which I obtained through FOIL. He then posted the information in his 3020-a Guide which really tells no one anything useful about how to win/keep their jobs.

In sum, Francesco Portelos and UFT Solidarity put all their followers in danger by urging members to file personal and defamatory "statements" about Principals in NYC - anonymously. 

I met Luco Celli in the Bronx "rubber room" on the top floor of 501 Courtlandt Avenue in 2008 when I worked at the UFT as a Special Representative. I did not find him angry or abusive, just very talkative.

I saw him on my weekly visits to his rubber room until I left the UFT in 2010 when the large warehouses - the original rubber rooms - were closed by agreement between Randi Weingarten, UFT President, and former NYC DOE Chancellor Joel Klein.

 I next time I heard about him was around 2014 when he became a member of the inner council of the UFT Solidarity hate group, which attacks innocent people for no reason other than retaliation for that person not wanting to do whatever they say.  (see DTOE and the A.N.O.I. list) because I heard that these Principals were using the names of UFT Solidarity members to create charges for 3020-a termination. Suddenly Francesco and Lydia started their campaign of lies against me and my company Advocatz. Lucio Celli and all of UFT Solidarity were given the approval to go ahead with any bad act they could think of, and pin it on me. I have received telephone calls from UFT Solidarity "members" screaming at me for being criminally insane, based upon nothing. Tom Filoramo did this. Lucio Celli called me 16 times August 15-16 2019 both to my landline and my cell, screaming that I was a criminal, liar, and thief.

Lucio Celli's story is a sad case of an educator who is angry and bitter at the world for his HIV+ status. 

On or about November 28, 2017, Lucio appeared at the Panel For Educational Policy meeting and threatened NYC Chancellor Carmen Farina by screaming "motherfucker" to her:


and on or about November 12, he sent an email to the Federal Court Administration saying that he would kill Federal judges Brian Cogan, Robert Katzman, and Margo Brodie by stabbing them to death because they are mafia:

USA-v-Celli Complaint

He was put into jail, indicted by a Grand jury, then let out on bail but only after he agreed never to use the internet. I believe he is still getting his salary from the NYC DOE of $100,000+.

On January 4, 2021, he was allowed by the Judge in Federal Criminal Court to file a Complaint. He represents the anger of UFT Solidarity.

Since 2014-2015 he has been sending emails to 50-250+ people at a time, describing the 'corruption' he has found. Over the years which followed, Lucio Celli became more and more abusive to anyone he thinks did not go along with him. anyone who denies that Lucio Celli is rational and telling the truth gets attacked and any friend of this person is attacked as well. The purpose, I believe, is to make people afraid to challenge him, and then do what he wants.

I challenged him and his mentor Francesco Portelos in 2015 when Francesco started his bully group.

See below for some of Lucio Celli's emails.

Dear Hon. Carter:

In your response to my lawsuit, you wanted the word settlement taken out of my complaint.

As you now know, my lawyer told me that the ALJ was going to be vindictive. BUT, the ALJ was the person that told me that I would win my PERB case and Mr. Drantch agreed to have me write my own settlement plan.

Please say this with me, "there is a connection between my lawyer saying ALJ would be vindictive and your request that settlement taken out of my lawsuit." The ALJ was vindictive and the word settlement was taken out of my amended complaint...you know this is interesting

Please explain your knowledge of everything, sir!

Dear Ms. Jackson-Chase:

From the manual as well:

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE OF RETALIATION
1. Evidence raises inference that retaliation was the cause of the challenged action;
Citing fake policies and arbitration decisions will raise suspicion

2. Respondent produces evidence of a legitimate, non-retaliatory reason for the challenged action; and I have numerous UFT staff members, I recorded them and I will keep those names to myself, that they do not have any knowledge of "well-known arbitration decision" or the "most famous arbitration decision." However, YOUR team cited them against me...hmmm, please say fraud with me!


Somehow or someway...WE WILL get to the truth because you have integrity!

3. Complainant proves that the reason advanced by the respondent is a pretext to hide the retaliatory motive.

Subject: RE: EEOC

Dear Ms. Jackson-Chase and Ms. Atkinson:


On 11/25/ 15, Mr. Kshensky suspended my hearing and Mr. Linchinstein lied about an arbitration decision to defraud me at a grievance hearing on 10/8/2015. The grievance on 10/8/2015 dealt with an email sent by Ms. Jackson-Chase and Mr. Linchinstein lied about reading my email...he clicked that he read my email.

Please take notice from the EEOC compliance manual:

"Suspending or limiting access to an internal grievance procedure also constitutes an “adverse action.” For example, in EEOC v. Board of Governors of State Colleges & Universities, a 29 university’s collective bargaining agreement provided for a specific internal grievance procedure leading to arbitration. The agreement further provided that this procedure could be terminated if the employee sought resolution in any other forum, such as the EEOC. The Seventh Circuit ruled that termination of the grievance process constituted an adverse employment action in violation of the anti-retaliation clause of the ADEA."

 I would like an explanation of 10/8/2015 and 11/25/2015 grievance hearing because Ms. Jackson-Chase said she had integrity on 12/18/2014. Please be mindful, Ms. Jackson-Chase that you were quick to answer my question about Betsy Combier, but you, Ms. Jackson-Chase, have avoided answering anything that is related to FRAUD--this is interesting fact!!! According to Ms. Susan Edelman's article, you and your team--you wrote "you and your team" as you answered me about Betsy Combier--- spent over a million dollars to fire a teacher that falsified documents, but you and your team have falsified against me.   How do you justify the actions of you and your team?

To Ms. Atkinson,
I am still waiting for the Union to address all my grievances, but I would like some sort of answer on 10/8/2015 and 11/25/2015 by the close of business on 2/12/2015

Thanks,
Lucio Celli

Subject: RE: DOE lawyer lying to a PERB Judge

Dear Mr. Drantch and Ms. Battle:

I totally forgot that I had two IPhones yesterday, I am sorry. Therefore, I have a recording of yesterday's proceeding at PERB. We all know what was yesterday and I have it documented!

To Mr. Drantch,
You lied to the ALJ Blassman on March 23 about Ms. Susan Mandel, Esq. Ms. Mandel deprived me of my rights as she falsified a legal document to harm Special Education students (IEPs issue that I wrote about the other day.) I would be ashamed, if I were you or Ms. Mandel because of the legal training that you and Ms. Mandel possess. You, Ms. Battle, and ALJ Blassman had an ex parte communication prior to April 8, 2015--what was said CANNOT change. THEN, you knowingly lied to the ALJ yesterday about the fact the ALJ told you to get and send me the documents that were falsified, but the ALJ lied too yesterday--its a good thing that I pressed record! Let me remind you that we cannot change what was said once I recorded it.

To Ms. Battle,
There is conflicting information centered on the secret agreement between that Ms. Sedlmeyer (UFT) informed me about between the DOE and UFT on April 16, 2015. This agreement was to harm UFT members at administrative hearing and I was harmed at an administrative hearing because falsified documents were submitted on May 4, 2015.

  1.  Ms. Weingarten wanted me to handover the recording.
  2.  Mr. Adam Ross wrote it does not exist and to hand it over.
  3.  Mr. Barr wrote handover the recording in August of 2015. In October of 2015, Mr. Barr wrote it was policy of the DOE. I have it documented, when I pressed record on my phone, the DOE likes to quote fake arbitration decisions and policies.

I said that I am willing to press play for anyone, but no one told me to come and press play!!

I appreciate the opportunity to record another administrative proceeding, but PERB is a joke and corrupt. I have to be honest about what I am experienced and what i recorded.

Thanks,
Mr. Celli

Subject: RE: Grievnace pt 2

Dear Ms. Solimando, Ms. Atkinson, and Ms. Jackson-Chase:

I sent in a grievance on December 23, 2015 and a step 1 grievance conference has not been scheduled, thus far. This is not the first the Office of Labor Relations played this deceitful and unlawful game with me. Please see the attachment of where I promised a date, but the hearing date was never scheduled. The Office of General Counsel state that they have integrity, but has allowed hearing officers to quote policies and arbitration decisions that do not exist. The lies were just a method to rob me.
When is the date for the grievance filed on December 23, 2015?

I would appreciate a response, even if it is another lie. At this point, I do not believe a single word that is stated by anyone under the supervision of the Office of General Counsel because I have Ms. Jackson-Chase telling me to contact her because her office has integrity--recorded. Next issue are IEPs.

Thanks,
Mr. Celli.

Subject: RE: Judge Blassman said that I would win the case

Dear Ms. Weingarten, Hon. Zachary Carter, and Mr. Mark Peters:

At this point, there should have been a review of the recording of March 23, 2015, which occurred at PERB. The recording had Judge Blassman and I speak about Vincent Gaglione and Susan Mandel, Esq. Attached you will find the email that I wrote on November 14, 2015. In the said email, I provided case law of an Administrative Law Judge being suspended for a similar behavior exhibited by Judge Blassman.

1.       Repeated the questions as a way to convince me that the charge was not valid because I had to prove when and the intent. As the recording showed, my answers DID NOT change because I did not fall for the mental coercion used by Judge Blassman. She did not like that I kept on saying Mr. Ross’ letter to her question.

2.       Then the judge and I spoke about Ms. Mandel. I stated Ms. Mandel wrote the WRONG facts into the grievance decision (falsifying a legal document and she is CULPABLE under a 1983 claim because she took two months to render the decision) and Judge Blassman said, “You can’t submit a charge because you did not like the decision.” I informed the judge that it was not the decision, but the FACT that Ms. Mandel put facts from a different decision. Judge Blassman and Ms. Mandel have legal training, so the judge knew about NYS Penal Code 175. In addition, everyone heard the explanation that Mr. Todd Drantch gave to Judge Blassman about Ms. Mandel, where did not explain anything.

Judge Blassman’s behavior was to help the Department and the UFT, and be deceitful towards me because I do not have legal training.

On April 8, 2015
Judge Blassman said, “I thought that there was going to be a settlement.” Then, the judge said that I would win the case—another deceitful tactic used by the judge— and I should write a settlement plan. Mr. Drantch clearly stated, “Yes, that’s right” to the judge, as she gave herself away about having an ex parte conversion with Ms. Battle and Mr. Drantch. Obviously, the judge, Ms. Battle of the UFT and Mr. Drantch, planned this ruse because the judge wanted to help the UFT and the DOE.  (My favorite performance is where Mr. Garry Laveman and Mr. Stanley Fogel did their take on “Who’s on First?” by Abbott and Costello’s as they talked about the “most famous arbitration decision. According to Ms. Battle, this decision does not exist and I could not find the decison at NYU’s Labor Library. I asked Ms. Jackson-Chase, the way she told me to contact her, to provide me with a copy of this decision in an email and at a PEP meeting, but I know by now that her meaning of integrity resembles fraud. )


1.       The judge told Mr. Drantch to get and send me the documents prior to May 4, 2015.

On April 29, 2015
Mr. Drantch wrote me an email to inform me that the Department could not provide me with a settlement because “the Department reviewed the case.” Mr. Drantch did not send me the documents and he helped, after the review of the case, Ms. Bernard commit a crime with the submission of fraudulent documents for May 4, 2015.

May 27, 2015
I sent a letter to Judge Blassman about the fraudulent documents and how they were submitted on May 4, 2015. In addition, I reminded the judge that Mr. Drantch did not obey her orders. To date, the judge has continued to help Mr. Drantch commit a crime because she has not address this issue.

Around June 6, 2015
I sent a letter to Judge Blassman asking her to compel the UFT and DOE to provide an explanation of how the fraudulent documents were submitted on May 4, 2015, and the recording of Ms. Sedlmeyer telling me that the UFT has a secret agreement with the Department to defraud teachers at administrative hearings.  Ms. Battle and Mr. Drantch answered, “It is not in the rules and procedures of PERB.”

1. On Columbus Day of this year, I went to a PERB trail date and I heard, along with Mr. Francesco Portelos and others, the judge rule on a motion that is not in the rules and procedures of PERB. Yet, Judge Blassman has ignored my motion that deals with the order she told Mr. Drantch on April 8, 2015 and it is a crime—wow, just wow!


The Judge said that I would win the case that Mr. Drantch said was dismissed--strange. I never received a letter from Judge Blassman informing me that the case was dismissed and it is a case that SHE SAID that I would win.  I will be in attendance on January 11, 2015, with a CD to give to the police.

What side of fraud are you on? I am beginning to think the wrong side of fraud, which is the side that helps fraud to flourish—I have to say what I feel. I have new topics and recordings that I want to start talking about now.
Sincerely,
Mr. Lucio Celli


 the Department of Education's disciplinary system is broken. I have written this many times on my blog, but if an educator is guilty of something, admit it and take your punishment - reasonable punishment. The penalty must be appropriate for the misconduct, and nothing more.

Dear Group:
I called TRS after I was infected to be informed about disability, as I wanted to be informed for the future as my illness progressed. This was done in 2009.  
I know that I am tier 4 so it is 66% and not 75%
I know that I bypass the UFT and DOE at any time and there are regulations to meet and a panel of doctors 
Therefore, I could not have said that statement because I know what to do if I wanted or needed to go that route since. That screenshot was created by Peter since he sent me this screenshot and I think he needs mental exam…I begged Peter to seek professional help for being gay, and creating truths that can be verified and I TOLD HIM that I do not have the screenshot he created. He even wanted me to sue him but I thanked him for warning me about Betsy’s plan with her gang because I did not react when Betsy threw her complaint at my dad, as he told told me it was her plan at the lunch, Betsy, as soon as you add him, I will submit the motion under 35. I guess you finally figured out that you are not Peter Zucker and Mavis only thanked Peter. We are getting 
This is Betsy’s racial discrimination against Italians, as she wants to paint me part of the mob by extorting money…..
I can’t believe that Betsy and Peter would create and say something that is a total lie and ANYONE can research TRS’ website for this public information— I would be ashamed to present a screenshot what can I expect from them, they bothered Mavis Shein when she was in mourning in the 9th month. Please correct me if I am wrong, but in the jewish religion the 9th month is the first time someone can visit the grave and hold service,,,, look at Doc. No 67 for one way they bothered her and Peter and Betsy are jewish. 

Peter made me fear for my life but he’s blogging about his wife being afraid of me—I have Peter’s words audio recorded and he only has his lies. In my opinion, Peter is gay and needs to come out of the closet and the only person harming his wife is Peter. In my opinion, Peter is so gay that he is the guiding star for martians because his flame burns so bright

Dear Mr. Joseph Baranello and Mr. Zumbolo :

Under the New York Freedom of Information Law, N.Y. Pub. Off. Law sec. 84 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records of work rules, and policies of fraudulent statements on legal documents.  Attached is a letter sent to medical. In the letter that is attached, I informed some administrator said that I told them I take psychiatric medication. THE FUCKING MEDICATION THAT I TAKE IS FOR FUCKING HIV MOTHER FUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FUCKING TRIED OF ASKING THE SAME FUCKING QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I have May 19, 2014, recorded and I did not make that statement nor did that subject come up....but it was written MOTHER FUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The letter is dated March 5, 2015 and it was faxed on 7-5-2015....PLEASE LOOK AT THE ATTACHMENT!!!  BUT the evil beast and animal Blassman knew of this letter on April 8, 2015....I NEED A MOTHER FUCKING answer to my MOTHER FUCKING QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOO MANY FUCKING MONTHS has passed to allow FUCKING FRAUD TO TAKE PLACE ...l AM DONE

Point 1: It is my understanding that grievance procedures are terms and conditions of employment and, thus, is a mandatory negotiable subject matter.  (p. 90 of the PERB reference guide attached)

Point 2: The impact of the exercise of a management prerogative on terms and conditions of employment of employees affected by it is a mandatory subject. (p. 87 of the PERB reference guide attached)

Point 3:  It is my understanding that disagreements over the specifics of a spoken command, violation of which may be difficult to resolve, a demand that verbal orders concerning work rules or regulations later be reduced to written form.   (p. 69 of the PERB reference guide attached)

Point 4: It is my understanding that there cannot be a waiver or modification of a statutory right or privilege which otherwise constitutes a term and condition of employment is mandatorily negotiable unless it is against public policy or contrary to a clear legislative intent. (p. 100 of the PERB reference guide attached)

Point 5:  It is my understanding that a union cannot demand a term and condition that would have a contravention of a law. (p. 99 of the PERB reference guide attached)

I CANNOT BELIEVE it has to come to this point because settling the issue should be easier. HOWEVER, the UFT and DOE continue to lie to me because they want to cover up what they have done to me at these administrative hearings. I have the recordings and I want to play them because it is the ONLY way to force the truth out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE

Attached are two recordings. There is a one recording labeled “hearing” and the other recording labeled “Mary.” Mary is Mary Atkinson of the UFT.  According to Ms. Atkinson, the UFT is figuring it out what happened and they have not heard from the DOE...please listen and then I have so many emails from Ms. Atkinson---this is being done to have it time out!!!!!!!!!!

Rules and polices of the DOE are sometimes like a nut and sometimes like FRUAD. FOR SURE, Ms. Courtenaye Jackson-Chase supervised and over the fraud. Ms. Jackson-Chase and her team had the audacity to spend over a million dollars to fire a teacher for fraud (it is fraud to Ms. Jackson-Chase because she told me she had integrity) and then turned around and commit fraud against me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FROM PERB
It is my understanding that anything negotiated is filed with PERB.
 Under the New York Freedom of Information Law, N.Y. Pub. Off. Law sec. 84 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records of work rules, and policies of grievance procedures and administrative hearings that UFT and DOE agreed upon.
(We to stop dancing in circles because the answers should be simple)

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me of the cost.

The New York Freedom of Information Law requires a response time of five business days.  If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than this amount of time, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.

Sincerely,

________________________________
