Bryant High School Staff Continue Opposition to Vicious Principal Namita Dworka

A couple of MOREistas stopped by what was advertized as a Tony Avella led rally. That didn't exactly happen. With the reign of terror by Dwarka the turnout is certainly affected. There are plans for monthly events. Here is a report from a MORE chapter leader who was joined by a MORE steering committee member.

We stopped by the Bryant event -- there were about 15 people there, maybe another 10 more if you count the students who were just kind of hanging out talking to former teachers. There was no rally and Tony Avella was not there. The crowd was current and former Bryant staff. MORE was well received and we have a small base in the school - some staff voted for us in the past and we had a few of their teachers at our contract event last spring.

From what I could gather this was organized by Bryant staff-  they are going to try and organize more of these including one next month. I told them I would try to get staff members from my school and other MORE folks out next time and they all agreed a day other than Monday would be better so people could come.

By all reports the principal in the school is terrible- lots of complaints about harassment and mismanagement from the staff. Last year there was a rally I stopped by organized by students that had 200 or so kids protesting. (See Ed Notes: http://ednotesonline.blogspot.com/2014/06/message-to-uft-leaders-wheres-change-of.html).

I have been to Bryant rallies in the past- for example the one three years ago when they tried to close it- and the school has a certain history of militancy and conflict with the DOE and this principal in particular. 
I couldn't make it over there due to a previous engagement with the family for a steak at Peter Lugers. Leftovers for lunch today.


  1. I hope this woman is not an East Indian - my ethnicity - shame on her if she is. We, East Indians try to live up to the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda, Paramhansa Yogananda, Ramana Maharishi, Guru Nanak, Kabir Sahib, Adi Shankara, and so many of our other Gurus which is our Heritage. Madam don't drag us down into filth - assert some advaita or vedantic values. Be human!

  2. This is a perfect example of why the entire DOE is corrupt. There is someone protecting her. She has had more investigations and verified wrongdoings and she comes to work every day. She has had an affair with another principal, attempted to remove 70% of the staff and driven out many outstanding teachers. The kids are on to her and hate her. She even has a school aid meet her at the door every morning and carry her books. She treats the entire staff as if they are her servants. Please go to facebook page Dwarka must go to see the real Namita Dwarka.

  3. They had all of one ineffective rating at Bryant last year. What do you consider a reign of terror?

  4. Reign of terror means she misuses her school credit card, writes sham write-ups(worst feedback ever that makes a teacher dumber), steals taxpayer money,destroys all educational programs(leaving students hanging),harasses veteran teachers as well as teachers that oppose her disgustingness, tries to sleep with peoples husbands and boyfriends, neglects students the proper learning tools for an education,has 51 untenured teachers and that number keeps climbing,has 15 lawsuits against her, purposely destroyed the school because her home like is a mess,and lost custody of her children do to her failure to properly parent(of course her husband left her). This lady is vile and has created a lot of enemies that want to bring her down.Treading on educators will not fly in that community. Stay tuned!
