Last week, opendna published NYC Principal Stages Hoax School Shooting on 300 Special Ed Kids. 20,000 signatures later we're still calling out the NYC Department of Education for what is now the 23rd day since these children were abused. Since then, there has yet to be any post-trauma care, or any message to parents about what occurred. Nor has there been any evident change or challenge to leadership at the school. No criminal charges. And no responses from any agency about any investigation.

Instead, the school administration, lead by the Principal, has begun a campaign of targeted retaliation. The Department of Education representative as well as several UFT represented arrived last week, with at least one leader covering his name tag, and all threatening their own employees and union members with suspension for speaking out about this child abuse.

In New York, it is legally mandated that public employees report any and all child abuse.

How can it be that an act of abuse that is violating disability rights, student rights, employee rights, human rights, union contracts, city, state, and federal law can be left unpunished so long? How is it possible that these kids parents haven't been informed? And that an administration can continue to coverup their crimes and intimidate everyone around them?

We're asking the Kos community for ideas. We're working hard. We've had our successes. But bottom line, we have yet to meet our promise to these kids, their parents, and the teachers who work for them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
