Shame on Chicago Board of Ed Members for Mocking / Bullying a Parent: Caught. Picture. #SHAME


Say it isn’t so … ?

Say I didn’t just read that Chicago Board of Education Members, Henry Bienen and Mahalia Hines, were making fun of an impassioned parent who chose to speak up for her children and their teachers … ?

Really ? Really ?

So, while Rousemary Vega, Chicago parent, is pleading for her children in the space of under two minutes, while she is fighting for the rights of students and teachers everywhere, the right to speak up and be heard … they mock her? They turn and ridicule her?

I am a teacher. When we see that kind of behavior in the classroom, we are obligated to address it. If it continues, prolonged, it is an indicator of bullying. And, even from way down here in Florida, this teacher can call their behavior exactly what it is … bullying.

Yes … bullying. And do you know what they teach us to do when we see bullying? Stand up to it … recognize it … report it.

So, Chicago Board of Ed Members Bienen and Hines … shame on you. Consider yourself REPORTED ! And for the rest, everywhere, remember : We are watching – we will speak up – we will not be silenced, shamed, or bullied.

Here is the video from that meeting. Watch the amazing Rousemary Vega, BADASS MOM, as she speaks up for children and teachers:

  2. While parent & activist, Rousemary Vega, asks the Chicago Board of Ed when they will respect parents & teachers who advocate for children, board members, Henry Bienen & Mahalia Hines, make fun of her. In Illinois, all school boards are elected EXCEPT Chicago – they are appointed by the mayor. It’s way past time to have a school board accountable to the communities they serve – not to the mayor’s agenda. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel clearly appoints bullies – like himself. http://www.nsba.org/SchoolLaw/Issues/Governance/electionschart.pdf
