Letter from a pre-Giuliani New York school.
JokerMouce is a little younger than me, but I had similar experiences in the New York City public “school” system. Everyone older than about 55 will remember the Great Teacher’s Strike from Al Shanker’s Teacher’s Union. My “High School” (it was called an “Intermediate School” back then, covering grades 6-12), I.S.#44, was the epicenter of the strike.
During my first year there, we had a teacher killed, several raped, a lot of them just plain beaten to a pulp, and Shanker was demanding “Combat Pay” for his teachers! At IS44, it really was a combat zone, complete with regular shootings, stabbings, and every form of criminality you can imagine. IS44’s catchment area was lower white middle class when I was born, but within ten years it was an almost 100% black area ( a few orientals and a few whites).
As the color of the neighborhood got darker, the crime statistics went up. My apartment building had to start an [illegally] armed “Lobby Patrol” to stop the several times weekly muggings and occasionally attempted killings we were having to put up with (the cops could not have cared less: If they showed up at all, it was hours after they were needed, and they made it crystal clear that low class white folk weren’t on their radar in terms of protection, as they had “real crimes to deal with”.The 60’s/70’s in New York City – in particular – and New York State generally, was a literal hellhole.
