Disgruntled Williamsburg Parent Changes Tactics…

but his motivations/inducements are more or less the same.

Looking for an apartment…

This, his latest attempt, is subtle…

NORTH Greenpoint

and yet, more desperate. Maybe you, my fellow Greenpointers, can open your hearts and sublet your closet, tool shed or parking space so “John’s” precious children can receive a better education? One their father clearly did not receive: reading, writing, critical thinking, and ethics:

I need to move my two children from an otherwise great location in Williamsburg. but where They currently attend a dismally performing school and I wish have them to attend the school designated for this neighborhood (annotated: GreenPoint). To this end I am prepared to sacrifice as above or pay $$ to anyone who can help effect this (my latest attempt to bribe my children into a better performing school in a less “great” location).

Miss Heather’s mind is a terrible thing to waste. Especially when forced to read and correct the aforementioned drech while waiting to check out at The Garden while not wasted (intoxication makes illiteracy coupled with entitlement go down better for yours truly).

The quality of “North GreenPoint’s” schools is well known. To Greenpointers and one Gowanus Lounge commenter anyway:

why is he doing this now – didn’t do his homework before moving house?

The information that Greenpoint’s two schools were high performing and Williamsburg’s were not was already freely available before the grading.

Clearly John did NOT do his homework. Given this gent’s persistence, it begs one to wonder how many more concerned Williamsburg parents will try to lie/cheat/bribe their way into Greenpoint’s public schools.

  2. i got the impression from his note that he moved to williamsburg prior to having children. there’s nothing really to indicate that he ever moved -to- williamsburg, as opposed to having grown up there.

  4. If this person’s children are really smart then they’ll be improving the schools in Williamsburg. It would be terrible to deprive the other children of Williamsburg, of this improvement. There is no child left behind in a mediocre system.

  6. Williamsburg schools aren’t that bad. Williamsburg parents are another story.

  8. Williamsburg schools aren’t that bad? Elementary school wise, there’s one in East Williamsburg that’s OK and improving (PS 132 Conselyea). Otherwise, it’s not a pretty picture. Greenpoint has two very different but exceptionally high performing primary schools. If this guy succeeds he’s potentially getting a huge improvement in his kids’ school. Sharing an address could be a nice gangster side business for rent-strapped Greenpointers.

Tell me what you're thinking...
