The U.S. school system has yet another weak link in the chain. This time it’s one of those high school administrators that the kids talk about under their breath and have a secret name they call her when she’s not within earshot.
According to the New York Daily News, high school students of Jane Addams High School in the South Bronx have been circulating a picture of their chocolate-doused principal all over the Internet. Principal Sharron Smalls has already been getting the side-eye from her staff and the school board due to her under performing school. The school graduated less than half of its senior class last year and her six-figure salary doesn’t seem to be well earned.
Smalls, 43, has been the principal at the school since 2007, and is also at the center of an investigation that garnered students “chemistry credits for cosmetology courses and geography credits for tourism classes.” More seniors may not graduate on time because they lack high-level math course credits. Some teachers are happy that the principal is being exposed for her poor judgement.
But, the lack of professionalism it takes for a school principal to post a Facebook profile picture of herself having chocolate drizzled on her by a possible male stripper while she appears to be dancing with him is a little more than poor judgment. You’re a friggin’ idiot and your students grades and credits reflect that fact.
Hopefully, she gets what’s coming to her. Our kids need better principals than those who jack them for their credits while they get dipped in chocolate on the weekend. Read the full report here.
