Shen is the new UAlbany
Shenendehowa School District of Clifton Park, the alma-mater of many locals, is a mess lately. Here’s the situation:
- A video “went viral” of a principal hardcore tackling a student away from a fight. (wnyt) It has since been removed from YouTube because it violated their terms of service, but not before causing embarrassment and an official response. (TU)
- A 14 year old student stole a car and ran away with some gun-wielding bro. (TU)
- One badass student was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. (wten) Apparently he may have been pepper-sprayed after punching a cop. (tumblr)
- A nasty drug-resistant staph infection spread to a few students. (wnyt)
- Kids in the same homeroom for the last two years don’t even know each others names. (twitter)
- Nearly 100 faculty positions may be eliminated because of budget cuts. (wnyt)
- Clifton Park homeowners might be paying 3.51 percent more in taxes for hosting wonderful Shen. (TU)
