Another progressive teacher lost his privilege to brainwash young minds, for an over the top Instagram post that he couldn’t delete fast enough. Now he’s trying to erase his nasty call for violence from history. As expected, this common core math master’s explanation doesn’t add up.
Teacher learns a lesson
Coney Island Prep School ex-faculty member Christopher Flanigan is the same kind of common core math teacher as the one who’s students designed that pedestrian bridge in Florida.
The one which pancaked onto traffic before it was open to the public. It didn’t have proper support but it was self-cleaning and had WiFi.
On Friday, January 28, “slain NYPD cop Jason Rivera was given a solemn final farewell,” New York Post reported. That infuriated Christopher Flanigan. He took to Instagram and noted the huge crowd of mourning law enforcement officers brought “ideal conditions for reciprocity.”
The public school teacher was clearly suggesting that someone drive a vehicle through the crowd. He says that’s not true. Thankfully, he’s not an English instructor because he can’t read a dictionary. Logic is supposed to be a math skill but he gets an “F” in that, too.
In a statement released Sunday, by Coney Island Prep School CEO Leslie-Bernard Joseph, “As of this afternoon, Mr. Flanigan is no longer employed at Coney Island Prep.” He wanted to put as much distance between the school and the disgraced teacher as possible. “We do not condone or promote violence of any sort.”
He went on to note that all the staff “are public servants and like all public servants we hold ourselves to a much higher standard.” Officer Rivera was “murdered in a cowardly ambush,” his partner also perished of wounds from the same bushwhack a week later.
Police take ‘innumerable risks’
The statement from the school spells out that they “work hard to serve the young people in our community, and we know our police officers do as well, taking innumerable risks, to keep our city safe.”
For a rogue teacher to even suggest someone would drive through a crowd is totally unacceptable.
Once he got word to hit the unemployment line, Flanigan went into panic. His attempts at controlling the damage were worse than the original post.
The former teacher now claims his deleted incitement to violence was “misconstrued.” He didn’t mean what he wrote, Flanigan insists.
All he was trying to do, Flanigan says, now that he might be facing criminal charges, was “trying to show the vulnerability of all of these police officers being in the same place at the same time which seems like a dangerous situation.” Just because it was the perfect opportunity to attack means he was suggesting anyone actually do it. He suddenly “respects” the police and “does not condone violence.”
A teacher should understand the meaning of the word “reciprocity.” Especially because it’s so close to that “equal” sign concept he babbles about daily. It’s sad to say that literacy has already been reduced to the point it’s at today. In the 1800’s when kids barely had a schoolroom, they tended to average literacy in around five languages. Today’s kids have gone back to pictograph hieroglyphics. If this trend continues, the next generation will point and grunt.
