Some of you may remember our old pal Matt Polazzo. He was the genius who suggested that the we tear up the union contract and allow "bad" teachers to be fired at will. Of course, Mr. Polazzo teaches at Stuyvesant, the city's top high school, so the odds him ever being classified as "bad" are practically nil. Nevertheless, he courageously offered his colleagues as cannon fodder for the Klein regime, without expecting anything for himself, except perhaps the opportunity to go on teaching the top students in the city, while shitting on teachers who have to take on all comers.
I'd pretty much forgotten about this blot on education, until his name came up today unexpectedly. You see, he's won the lottery! No, not the Mega Millions, but something much more precious: he won his daughter a spot in a charter school run by fellow union basher Eva Moskowitz.
What an amazing coincidence! Matt Polazzo, one of Joel Klein's favorite ass-kissers, somehow gets his daughter a spot in a school run by Eva Moskowitz, who was famously at the top of Klein's speed dial. I mean, what are the odds?
A suspicious person might think that maybe this whole lottery thing was rigged, given how closely related these folks are. It must be a million to one shot that Polazzo, whose brown lips were firmly fastened to Klein's sphincter, got a spot in a school run by Moskowitz, who had to have Klein's lips separated from her own ass with a derrick. Seems hard to believe, eh?
And then, add in the fact that Polazzo just happened to be on hand to suck up to Moskowitz for the reporters at the Daily News.
Of course, we all know that charters are 100% on the up and up, and they would never show preferential treatment to someone who sucked up to them. Charters would never cherry-pick their students, or kick out students who don't perform, or accept less than their fair share of ELL or special ed students, so we can be confident that this lottery was legit.
Maybe, if Matt plays his cards right, he can win the lottery again, and end up a principal in one of Moskowitz's schools. It's a long shot, but hey, who knows? He's been pretty lucky so far.
