I thought I would feature a comment by someone who calls herself Sonya. I doubt if that's her real name. Sonya, like Rhee continues to bash DC teachers at every turn. Although Rhee has taken her public bashing of DCPS employees on the road, this local hater spews her venom with a vengeance right here on The Washington Teacher blog. Her words remind me of Jill Scott's song " Hate On Me Hater."
"I could give you the world on a silver platter, Would it even matter ? You'd still be mad at me. If I could find in all this a dozen roses which I would give to you, you'd still be miserable. In reality I'm gon' be who I be and I don't feel no faults. For all the lies you bought You can try as you may, break me down when I say that it ain't up to you, gonna do what you do.You cannot hate on me 'cause my mind is free. Hate on me hater ....."
This is what Sonya the hater had to say:
"Just goes to show you how sh---- some of these teachers are. The moron commenters on this blog can't spell, punctuate, write a complete sentence, etc. I wholeheartedly stand behind Rhee. These damn unions reward the lazy and promote the incompetent. I'm usually pro-union, but this is ridiculous! I'm glad she's shaking things up and lighting a fire under some of your asses. I can't believe you people think she should have cut funding for more educational programming over the summers over saving your jobs. Hello, does that not illustrate something for you? The system has been failing for years. Whose fault do you idiots think that is? Time for change. Good riddance to you all. Oh, and good luck with Oprah."
