In the fall of 2014, a physical education teacher from William Bryant High School found the classroom he was given to be hazardous. He asked Principal Namita Dwarka to change rooms and she denied the requests. He made the decision to move his students to another room and called OSHA. OSHA came in and after an inspection they immediately shut down the room. This did not stop the Principal Dwarka from giving him a disciplinary letter for moving the students without permission. OSHA eventually substantiated the teacher’s allegation.

The teacher was also a witness to a cheating scandal the Principal Dwarka was allegedly involved in and interviewed by DOE investigators.

Johnathan Hinesley is a chapter leader who was also called incompetent and banished to the basement by Principal Liza Ortiz of the Bronx. He was brought up on termination charges soon after he asked for support, asked for some documentation and filed grievances. His principal prevents Johnathan’s members from going to him and allegedly watches the cameras closely. Johnathan joins a growing list of chapter leaders and delegates who come under the gun after raising concerns in the school and taking union titles. The UFT, although has passed resolutions to protect school union leaders , has not stepped up to the plate to defend and support.

    It is such a sham, ridiculous and frivolous observations and fraudulent charges to terminate hard working teachers so she can continue the abuse the staff, the student body, etc. On top of that she is protected by the vicious DOE lawyers, the NYSUT, the Chancellor and the UFT

    We are going to bring her down no matter if the UFT helps or not. She is guilty of incompetence, duscriminating against veteran teachers, harassing and intimidating teachers, forcing APs to change observations, educational neglect, nismanagement of funds and computer equipment, producing the worse results ever for the regents, destroying a school’s culture, getting rid of the most experieced staff, manipulating and falsifying data.

  3. The UFT has been “Missing In Action” while brave teachers like this young man take the hit. The “Compromise Solution” approach that Unity relies on seems to always lead to the punishment, if not banishment, of rank-and-file teachers. Its long past time to remove the clowns and the thieves that pretend to represent us.

    More than 100 experienced staff members got pushed out, some of them were very good. The ones left are being pressured to pass students, and are given credit like candies. DWARKA wants to run the school to the ground.
