Mayor’s Elite Friends

Dear Editor,

So the New York media elite congratulate Meryl Tisch and David Steiner for coming clean about the sham they have made of our schools after having handed out millions of meaningless diplomas to New York school children for the past 9 years? Ms. Tisch is an upper east side billionaire and neighbor of Bloomberg who went out of her way to get Bloomberg’s two fellow rich, upper east side residents and uncertified “chancellors,“ Joel Klein and Cathie Black, “waivers” to wreak havoc upon New York City schools. Bloomberg’s control has resulted in failure. NYC SAT scores are lower by double digits after 9 years of his unfettered control even after taking an improper

3rd term in office. He closes schools with his rubber stamp “panel” and only has this authority because Ms. Tisch and her anointed Commissioner Steiner – who also lacks certification as a school administrator – back him up to no end. To add insult to injury, Ms Tisch admitted in an interview that she “shares holiday supper and double dates with Joel.” No shabby, outer-borough, working class schmucks invited for dinner with this crowd! They are truly like the crowd on the Titanic. If they came from different zip codes or had vowels at the ends of their names this would probably have wound up in court as a RICO conspiracy.
