Livid Over Scott's PS 106 Portrayal

Dear Editor,

I am livid about Norman Scott's commentary in School Scope (Queen Bee Meets Queen Bee). Scott needs to get the story straight before he goes off on a one-sided tirade against Principal Sills or UFT President Randi Weingarten.

It is a well-established fact that before Ms. Sills was the principal of PS 106 anyone could walk onto school property and take a child off the premises. Principal Sills established a security control where EVERYONE has to sign in with the security guard showing proper identification, which is recorded by the security guard or office employee.

Weingarten got upset because she expects to be treated above the rest of our community. If parents have to sign in and then sign out to come onto school premises, then what makes Ms. Weingarten above this very important security procedure? Especially, as quoted by an article in The Wave, the amount of pedophiles that live all around our school. So as far as there being a battle of whose boss, Ms. Weingarten loses, as Principal Sills is the boss of that school and has every right to insist that EVERYONE who enters PS 106 to sign in. I know for a fact that the UFT meeting was held on the top floor in the library and she had to climb the stairs anyway… so her argument is moot. The school office is on the second floor and the library is right above that using the same staircase.

As for Scott's ICE pamphlets, Principal Sills' remark that she won't have any political agenda entering her (My) school is more than appropriate. Hitting below the belt and attacking Principal Sills dress is another personal remark that Mr. Scott should keep to himself or at least share only with his other misogynistic brethren. Principal Sills embodies what a young successful woman should dress like.

She is a glowing example of a successful woman and human being. The catty remark made by Scott that she doesn't have to worry about messing up her clothes to hug or comfort her students is ludicrous and immoral. I have witnessed Principal Sills on a daily basis getting tears, snot, vomit, etc. on her clothes. She is a hands-on Educator and Scott needs to take his own personal inventory before jumping on her simply because she would not let him have his way. Principal Sills is a competent and confident principal, deserving our respect and admiration.

She has brought in a teaching paradigm that has had a huge effect on her student's ability to learn and retain that knowledge along with the fact that she supports the parents of this community with a maternal and nurturing character. Mr. Scott you should be ashamed of yourself and withdraw any further contributions to The Wave. You have clearly shown yourself to be a sexist impotent moron when it comes to passing judgments on qualified and hardworking principals that make their student's priority number one. Mr. Scott please, keep your ill informed opinions to yourself.
