On Friday. October 4, 2013, an incident took place in a (flagship) school in Miami Dade which has completely destroyed my faith in the educational system. A child who is the son of a Principal (at a different school) and the nephew of another principal at the school which he is registered was caught in possession of narcotics inside the school. A second child was also involved in the transgression as well. However, due to the politics in Miami Dade schools the entire incident is in the process of being swept under the rug by the School Police and the Principals as well as the AP's. Ironically, this week is Drug Awareness week and the children in Miami Dade are being versed on he evilness of narcotics and their danger. How hypocritical is it that the leaders of two different schools and law enforcement, (after the incident being witnessed by 100's of students and the entire school being searched) are attempting to hide this ugly affair and expecting the kids to take any of this message seriously? How is it that parents can be expected to have any confidence in the Administration of these schools or any other Miami Dade learning institution or law enforcement? In my opinion if this were to happen in an inner city or low income area school would they have given that child the same treatment? Doubtful... Parents should be outraged. Citizens should be outraged! Unfortunately the entire thing is being made to look like it was a non-meaningful incident. We are not fooling the kids who were present. We are not fooling the members of the staff who were present. This is the most vile and degrading act that can be perpetrated on the students and parents of the children at that school and beyond. Furthermore. this child has been a problem at this school since enrolling nearly two years ago. He has been suspended and given detention numerous times and the discipline has been ineffective. He was expelled from at least one other school and continues to defy all authority. Why not if the people in charge of his discipline are the ones protecting him from the real world and making him responsible for his actions? Would a child in a Homestead or Florida City or Opa Laka be protected this way? Once again doubtful.
