I have mixed feelings about this story because I sympathize with this teacher, these kids roday do have their brains in their asses. I don’t think the issue is really up for debate.
New York Post reports a foulmouthed teacher got her butt fired after she told a group of ninth-graders “they had their brains in their ass,” then tried to bribe a student to save her hide, officials said.
The city Department of Education accused Bernadette Camacho, 39, of verbally abusing social-studies students at Hillcrest HS in Queens, according to investigation documents The Post obtained through a Freedom of Information request.
But during the hearings that would decide her fate, the teacher tried to coerce a flunking female student to sing her praises in court in exchange for a passing grade, officials said.
The plan backfired.
The student told her mother, who in turn informed Camacho that if the teacher didn’t stop pressuring her daughter with cellphone calls, she would alert police.
Camacho approached the girl at school and told her, “Thank you for making my life worse,” according to a probe by schools investigator Richard Condon.
Condon found that Camacho called the student five times, including on March 20 at 6:44 p.m., the night before a pre-hearing conference on the disciplinary charges the teacher faced.
I would have to step aside from Camacho for the bribery attempt. She would’ve been much better off profusely apologizing for telling the truth.
