The Saga of Barbaric Paul Robeson HS

Candace de Russy

A teen went public about her failing high school -- a sick, sick place in Brooklyn where students have sex and smoke dope in the stairwells, where pregnancies and smoking pot are the stuff of every day, and where administrators and security guards are lazy and incompetent.

For her efforts, according to the New York Post, the student, Alisha Strawder, was barred from the school and told that it cannot guarantee her safety.

One student told the Post: "Everyone wants to fight her, to jump her. If they find her, they're going to beat her up."

Is it possible to reverse such institutionalized depravity? This young girl, unlike most of the educational establishment, has had the courage to try.
