Principals Compete In Best T-Shirt Contest

Written by Kari Milchman on . Posted in Education, Posts.

Remember back in August when we told you about the ye olde Arabic school setting up shop in the city? And then Principal Debbie Almontaser was forced to resign from her post at said Arabic school after wearing a shirt that read, “Intifada NYC,” which in English translates to, “Shaking off.” And we’re sure you recall how a group of elected officials rallied for the reinstatement of lil’ Debbie, the kind of fearless leader that puts the pal back in principal. But, alas, the Department of Education is still looking for applicants to fill the position at the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn. Technically, Almontaser could reapply to get back her $120,000-a-year title. We wonder what interim acting principal Danielle Salzberg is telling her therapist right now.
