Blogging Claims a "Victim"

No, not us. Not yet anyway.

In the Tribune today, there is a story about a blog, created by a Chicago Public School teacher where he (or she) created an identity of "Regnef" (Fenger spelled backwards) and took the students, administrators, and co-workers to task. Unfortunately, he (or she) didn't have quite the number of readers that would make him (or her) happy, so he (or she) started mentioning it around the staff room that there was a blog online that they might find interesting. Boy oh boy, was that an understatement. The author was quickly identified (probably by co-workers) and the death threats, promises of revenge, etc., began in earnest. The teacher has not shown up for work since that day and the blog disappeared, until some enterprising soul recovered the posts and put them up over here. No, not us.

It's actually an amusing little insight into how screwed up the Chicago Public Schools truly are. If the media ever did an in-depth expose into how much money and manpower the schools piss away, they'd win half a dozen Pulitzer Prizes. But since it's just a teacher telling uncomfortable truths in a rambling sort of way (with little actual regard for spelling and punctuation), it means nothing. One should be careful of what one wishes for in terms of readership - you just might get it.

I think that teacher has some testicular fortitude
He speaketh the truth
Hopefully they wont roast him on a apit over an open fire
They need to clean up their own back yards
It aint whiteys fault
It aint the Po po's fault
its their fault

They need to clean up a bit

The teacher absolutely spoke the truth about Fenger. Check the Data Warehouse or Automated Arrest system for the number of arrests from Fenger over the last couple of months (Maybe since school started in September). The 022nd District calls the place Fenger Correctional Institute for a reason. A principal that was brought in three years ago recruited all of the kids that were kicked out of every school on the south side, and it started an immediate gang war. She also refused to cooperate with the Police, trying to order them out of the school. When told she doesn't have the authority to do that, she tried bolting the doors to the police room, but nothing a crowbar couldn't fix. A new principal is slowly cleaning up the mess, but it will take time. The worst is the gangbanger parents of the kids, who get called by the kids to come up with bats after school so they can get someone on the way out the door. In the past, the parents have even been known to "check up" on their kids in the school, and pass them assorted weapons to use in the school. Juvenile Court just turns them back out to the parents, and the State's Attorney's Office will never approve anything related to a school incident because, as one ASA said on the phone to a detective in a February case, "It's part of a Policeman's job to be battered. It's not like he was put in the hospital." I wonder if the ASA's would feel that way if the mope hit them in a courtroom, in front of the judge and other ASA's. Battery of a PO is just that, with no stipulation as to severity of injury to the officer.

A follow up to Fenger: the day before school let out for spring break this year (Thursday Apr 13), the 022nd District had the 2 PO's assigned to the school there, 4 extra PO's from the 10-99 units assigned to the district, 2 Sgts, and a Sgt and 10 PO's from SOS. Sorry folks, when you need that much security, the parents of these kids are not fooling anyone. They are the ones encouraging the behavior by not properly disciplining their kids. Also, when they automatically put on the act of blaming the police for the problems their kids encounter, more garbage. Go ahead, Fran Spielman, Mark Brown, John Kass, etc, and all of the media scribes. I'm calling you guys out on the carpet on this one, something I have never done on this board. It is all public record. The teacher was on the money. Let's see you print an article supporting him. I don't believe you have the fortitude to do that, because it simply will not sell papers, and may endanger your spots in the newspapers

Yes, lets punish this white devil for telling the truth.The truth is what the politicians of this city are afraid of. The fucked up school system in which 1 in 6 graduates from college can't be the fault of the savage students and their families...... no it's "da man's" fault. What did he say on his blog that is not TRUTH?

SCC, thanks for putting the posts up.

The media needs to write an in-depth investigation and story on this.

Sounds like the high schools myself and my friends attended. Kids popping pills in class, drinking, walking around pregnant, pushing the race crap to excess, etc.

It's hard enough being a teen and having to deal with all of that, trying to find your way in life.

The school and parents needs to intervene.

Teach should identify himself - its unlikely that he will ever teach again but he's got a fine idea for detail and is a fascinating story teller - he could write a book on just the materials he has posted on his blog. Good luck to him. He needs to grab his 15 minutes of fame.

The PARENTS? In an inner city public school? Sad to say, they are far and few in between.

The elected officials have sold out our country for votes. It's give the dogs as many government give-aways for bad behavior, and get their vote.

I'm thinking of running for mayor. My campaign will be based on two ideas. Idea 1 - put qualified, trustworthy, unconnected people in city government. Idea 2 - tell minority neighborhoods point blank I will support the police, and so should they. If you want to get real with the problems in your communitty, stand up for yourselves, stand up to the gangbangers, assist the police, stop claiming to be a victim. All you need is to give your children hope, and a better life than you had-the neighborhood will change. Face it-the police didn't cause your problems. The police didn't decide to take away your family structure, drop half of you out of school and cause everyone to become Link addicts. I'm certain to get 1 vote.

I knew the city schools were out of control, but after reading the Fenger blog, I'm stunned.
What's even more frightening, those of us who might not have the financial means to afford a decent
old folks home, are going to be at the mercy of these lost young people when the grow up and life really deals them an unfair hand.
I think we should be back the draft. Let the military crack the whip on their a$$es. 18 yo and you're off the street and onto a bus. Done. See ya when you're 22,
and those hormones are a little in check.

This guy exposes CPS for what it is. Lazy-ass teachers that can't, or won't, teach these fucking thugs who if they DO go to school, only go to fuck their multiple hoes in the stairwells and beat down the white students. No wonder only 6 out of 1000 will get a Bachelor's Degree.

Until they completely tear down the public schools and re-build them the way the need to be, I'll keep working side-jobs to keep my kids from these savages.

The students were quoted in the Trib as calling the blog-racist- even though in the next sentence, they say that everything was true..

Betu the the teacher wasn't white 'cause if he was, the paper would have been all over that part-Typical, blame the messenger but don't take any personal responsibility.

Did you know that the graduation rate of Fenger is 10%????? No bullshit. Out of a typical incoming freshman class of 500, only 50 will make it to their senior year and graduate.

I'm so glad I can live in Chicago and contribute my taxes to pay for this!!

Stories like these and my own experiences in CPS are exactly what led me to the CPD hiring process. NO ONE has a teacher's back. Wanna see some exhausted, beaten down souls? Check the faculty lounge.

The continent of their heritage is well known for math and science. They invented the first calculator. Ten finger & ten toes. Of course you had to be able to count. It had to be tough on a continent with not one written language until strangers came and taught you how to write. Look at the great art that came out of there. Carve a mask out of wood, slap some berry juice on it, and now you have art. Ha! Ha!

This is why I WILL not send my children to public school. It really does not matter where you live in the city as long a a "certain' racial group is in your School, Bussed or otherwise. The chaos will take over and those who want to learn cannot.

If there is anyone out there who doesn't believe the stuff in that blog, believe it. Tonight we asked 7 kids how many inches were in a foot and the closest answer was "about 6". The guy I worked with offered anyone a dollar who could tell him how many feet were in a yard. One girl said 3, but walked away because she thought she guessed wrong. These were all 13-15 year olds. The only job these kids will ever be qualified are those medical experiments where they pump you full of uncertified drugs to see if you go blind.

For a further explanation, just take a good look at thier "civiziliation"!
Its OK to sell / do drugs, Its OK to join a gang, its OK to shoot / kill / rob / rape /... its ok to sit at home, do nothing and get someone else's tax dollars for being nothing more that a "Breeder". and the list goes on, and on...
