Mayor Not Happy About Forest Hills Party

The Post today reported that Mayor Bill de Blasio, to his credit, took a completely different approach than the DOE spokesperson who replied to Sue Edelman's story. The spokesperson seemed to think everything was fine and the principal, who evidently looked the other way, was doing a fabulous job.

De Blasio clearly saw things differently:

“If something like that is happening there will be serious consequences for anyone involved,” Hizzoner said from Iowa.
“It is not legal and it’s not acceptable.”

That's an appropriate response. Instead of pretending that nothing is happening, you stand up and face the situation.

Kudos to the Mayor for taking a stand. It's always easier to stick your head in the sand and hope for the best, but that's not leadership. I sincerely hope my brothers and sisters and Forest Hills High School will reap the benefits of a stand-up politician willing to face a situation and deal with it.
