Couldn't DOE Employees With Private Cars and Sirens Have Funded Some New Bathrooms Instead?
Many of the City's public schools' bathrooms are unusable say parents, and kids are leaving the building to go to the bathroom elsewhere or holding it until later, after school.
At the same time, 14 Department of Education officials not only have private city-owned cars to take them to work at Tweed but also have police sirens and emergency lights to get them there 10 minutes faster, as Deputy Mayor Carol Robles-Roman tried to do in February. A CBS camera crew caught her using her siren to get to New York City from her home in Riverdale, and then Mayor Bloomberg yanked the "perk" from 255 city "officials". 14 DOE "officials" including the Chancellor evidently felt it was their right to have this perk.
Why didn't these DOE employees donate the money from their cars/chauffeurs/sirens, and 'adopt' a bathroom?
