Banana Kelly principal calls it quits

In a letter tinged with sadness and bitterness, the embattled principal of Banana Kelly High School has resigned.

Joshua Laub, who headed the school for 12 years blamed city policies for the declining fortunes of the school, where graduation rates have been falling while enrollment climbed.

Saying the Department of Education favored charter schools and other schools of choice over neighborhood schools, Laub charged the policy “allowed and even encouraged the racial re-segregation of NYC schools and revived, in practice, the failed and illegal doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ struck down decades ago by the US Supreme Court.”
