Reading, writing and brawling

From the Times Newsweekly:

Several students at Grover Cleveland High School last Wednesday, Mar. 24, were arrested after a brawl erupted between two groups of pupils inside the Ridgewood campus, it was reported.

As many as 50 youths were involved in the fight that took place in the second floor hallway of the facility located at 2120 Himrod St. at around 11:30 a.m. last Wednesday morning.

Two youths were arrested by officers from the 104th Precinct on related charges, while four others involved in the melee face disciplinary action, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Education.

The DOE spokesperson told the Times Newsweekly that no major injuries were reported.

That's the DOEs multicultural agenda at work and the future of our Sanctuary city's streets.

Speaking of teachers and the DOE- Is Italian Girl still alive or did the yard apes anchored in Jackson Heights kill her?

Yea i tried to put this up before but it didn't send. Thats not the DOE thats just the neighborhood gangs fighting. Ridgewood has changed over the past couple of years or so. That fight specifically was between the Latin Kings and the Trinitarios a Dominican gang that has claimed Woodward Ave as there block. Tensions have been boiling between them recently and apparently it spilled over into the school. Amazingly this happened when Chancellor Klein was visiting the school and yet I heard that its not getting closed down despite the previous rumors.
