Let Us Not in Righteous Indignation Fail to See

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

Matthew 7:3

I resist as least weekly, it seems, to name directly yet another disturbing example of how “no excuses” approaches to teaching mostly black/ brown and poor children are inexcusable, abusive, and disgusting.

But a recent video prompted two responses that are important to highlight and need no further explanation—from Jose Vilson and Shree Chauhan:

    If the revelations of Moskowitz’s charter schools continue getting this level of exposure in the media, eventually she’ll have to go into hiding to avoid being attacked physically and possibly even killed by a mob. I wouldn’t be surprised if she already has armed bodyguards, paid for by her patrons, the hedge fund billionaires who financial support the growth of her brutal, authoritarian, gulag style private sector for profit education empire.

    This is what happens when powerful psychopaths who abuse their power are exposed to the public. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day we wake up to news that a mob lynched Moskowitz and hung her from a light pole in Times Square.

        I think she should be run out of town on a rail.

        From Wiki: Riding the rail (also called being “run out of town on a rail”) was a punishment most prevalent in 18th and 19th century United States in which an offender was made to straddle a fence rail held on the shoulders of two or more bearers.

        From the Urban Dictionary: Olde-timey phrase, most commonly referring to the act of literally carrying someone perched uncomfortably on a rail to a point outside of the city limits. This was often a form of punishment for committing any act others thought was extremely bad. It is still sometimes used in the Southern states.

        now if we could just edit that You Tube video and put Eva on that rail.
