Who will teach the parents?

Just catching up with events in the Mad Madison school district, this time at Leopold elementary school. Thanks to Dylan Brogan of Isthmus, one of the finest reporters in town, we learn only this week of an incident four weeks ago, well before the Spring school board election.

Children lie about what happened at school? Who knew?

Parents turn a behavior issue into a racial incident? Forget it, Jake, it’s Madison.

Most disturbing, school district P.R. person urges the news media to spike the story? Of course.

Ten-year-old girl alleges principal smacked her in the face. Mother over-reacts.

“Where is the fucking principal? I’m gonna beat her white ass,” the kid’s mother screamed outside the principal’s office, according to the — get this! — 32-page police report. Five police officers respond, two of whom are African-American but not black enough for good ol’ mom. She called the officer, “an Uncle Tom with a white dick in your mouth.”

The kid’s uncle gets in on the act, threatens to kill police.

Roll the video. Never happened. Police should but do not arrest mom and uncle for disorderly conduct — regardless of whether the child was struck or not. School district official encourages Isthmus to spike the story. The real take-away: for perhaps the first time, one, lonely school district official sticks up for the educator.

Thank you T.J. Mertz, for becoming the first MMSD official to back up a teacher/school principal or, at the very least, not throw them under the school bus before getting all the facts. Of course, he was defeated for re-election. Paging Rev. Alex Gee — can we preach school discipline? Michael Johnson of Boys & Girls Clubs, can we encourage parents to set an example? Ananda Mirilli and Ali Muldrow, can we start by banning the F-bomb at school board meetings? Just to set a better tone?

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Thank you Ali for buying dinner at The Sardine last week. Enjoyed our mutual Debate #7. Good to see John Nichols and Mary Bottari there. Thanks for buying dessert. Blaska bet Muldrow $50 that the Open Enrollment statistics three years hence will show more Madison residents fleeing district schools than the net 804 leaving this school year.

I’ve already spent the $50, Ali.

    I wonder how many times that potty-mouthed mother hurling threats of physical violence at the principal has met with teachers to address her child’s obvious behavior issues. My guess is none. It’s pretty telling that a 10-year-old already knows how to play the race card in Madison. But keep the faith–things are bound to improve under enlightened guidance of the oh-so-diverse (translation: no white guys) school board.

    ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of feral POS criminal thug adults threatening grave physical harm, racially-inflamed homophobic insults, and including death threats to staff and LEO’s ONE_FREAKIN’_WEEK_AFTER feral POS criminal thug adults threatened grave physical harm, racially-inflamed homophobic insults, and including death threats to staff and LEO’s.

    And “District Spokesperson Rachel Strauch-Nelson (urging) Isthmus not to publicize the episode, (because) it would prevent healing between the family and the staff at Leopold, and reinforce negative stereotypes.”

    What negative stereotypes, that feral POS criminal thug adults are predisposed to threatening grave physical harm and issuing racially-inflamed homophobic insults including death threats?

    What The F**K!?!

    Some enterprising individual should FOIA ALL tax-payer funded emails from these tax-payer paid public employees regarding the Leopold School incident, then hold their feet to the fire!

    The Isthmus article was great- really illuminated what Madison has devolved into. The principal obviously wanted to press charges but was afraid of retribution. I was disappointed at Koval’s public statement on this- I thought he would enforce the law, not play the omniscient racial healer. I wonder if my white self could threaten a school official in such a manner, and expect not to be arrested? I know the answer. Madison has doubled down on the soft bigotry of low expectations.

      Provided you structure it the right way, why not?

      Just pull a Rachel Dolezal/Shaun King/Elizabeth “Lieawatha-Fauxchahontas” Warren/Alexandria OCRAZYo-Cortez and tell everyone you identify as any number of protected class/privileged group members.

      Question; why do the above lily White (except for CheOC) morons desperately try to be something they aren’t?

    HHH, I agree wholeheartedly,RE: “the soft bigotry of low expectations.” Unfortunately that started decades ago for the generation now between 25 & 40, and reinforced by Dane County DA’s and judges. 1st Offender Programs, deferred jail/prison, for (many) repeat offenses. What’s the penalty these days? And…. where/when did we give permission for obscene and violent confrontations? Sadly, perhaps it won’t get better until it becomes worse.

    Certain people have their ear to the ground for things like this, The Gotch included, and despite Top Men being involved, what’s there been?

    Nothing…NOTHING…anywhere! WMTV, WKOW, WISC, WMSN, the Wisconsin State Journal, the (shocker) Crap Times, all wireless, including (heh!) WNPR and 1310 WIBA/Miss Vicki…unless we got sandbagged, by the latter, which I seriously believe is far beyond the realm of possibility.

    Five LEO response, 32 page report, no arrests, a ~ 4 week radio silence across the 77 Square Miles Surrounded By A Sea Of Reality; in what Universe is that NOT news?

    It gets worse.

    Where DO we get it…the freakin’ Isthmus?? BIG TIME H/T to Dylan Brogan.

    Heck, no one wants to prevent healing between the family and the staff at Leopold, and reinforce negative stereotypes.

    I don’t leastways, and that’s just what Strauch-Nelson wanted all the way along.

    Blaska is right, again. The greatest offense is that the Madison public schools want to squelch an account of this particularly odious episode. Think about it. The district’s PR person, a public employee, tries to block the public’s access to the truth. (Good job, Isthmus!)

    Here’s an idea: Enforce a disciplinary policy, and there may be fewer eruptions of chaos and adult threats of violence in the public schools. As it is, our many Madison Catholic schools are saying: “Bless the children, for they may enroll here!”

    At the Catholic school I’m most familiar with, Queen of Peace, there is mutual respect among teachers, parents and students. (What a concept!)

      Blaska is right again because he hit a chord that riles your bowels. Who cares? Nobody. Let the cops and the schools figure it out. If your “catholic school ” is so great then hold a fund raising drive and add on to it. Open it up. Bring in the poor families. The minorities. Hire more nuns and priests. Hire a bus company to bring students in. Will you do it? No. Because it may cost MONEY. Some of YOUR money. And god forbid there may be some parents out there that really don’t want THEIR kids to go to YOUR school run by YOUR religious group.

    I did notice a tiny speck of DARK RED (Tribe 2/”Uphill Battle” I.Q. range 75-90) in a far NW corner of Columbia County, WI.

      • richard lesiak trolled, “Next time you see your BFF zoltar ask if he’s sued for breaking copyright laws yet.”

        Let’s dumb this down so a person at your obvious intellectual level can comprehend it…

        Knowledge is the collection of skills and information a person has acquired through experience. Intelligence is the ability to apply that knowledge.

        Ignorance is a sincere lack of knowledge.

        Stupidity is the inability to learn what’s taught or apply what’s learned.

        No Richard, I haven’t been sued for breaking copyright laws; why, because I’m not breaking any copyright laws. You’ve been told this multiple times and yet it doesn’t sink in; therefore, I think it’s a fair conclusion that you’re stupid.

        Richard, there’s two things that you’ve regularly shown us here at Blaska Policy Werkes with your regular nonsense trolling, you’ve shown us that you can’t retain knowledge that’s presented and you can’t apply knowledge that you might have retained. I suppose these things could be a result of some cognizant decline possibly due to over 70 years of life but it could also be due to abusing “controlled” substances for over 70 years of life but I sincerely doubt both, I think you’re just a stupid troll.

    P.S. That mother and Uncle should have been arrested and the lying little brat child should have been suspended for her actions that were at the very core of the whole incident, that racist-in-training kid knew exactly what her racist family mentors would do.
