Update on the Jason Kovac situation at PS 14

Wow, you folks at PS 14 were right.  Jason Kovac is one tough nut to crack.

PS 14 in Throgs Neck has a new interim principal now, Ira Schulman, who will hopefully at least have better communication skills than his predecessor.  Former principal Jason Kovac was contacted numerous times to state his case after his raking in the UFT press.  Maybe he didn’t respond to e-mails.  Maybe his DOE e-mail isn’t working (If anyone knows his whereabouts, please let me know).

Nonetheless, Kovac has proven at least one of his allegations right: he believes he is above public scrutiny.  That adds up to being a pretty smug, self-serving you-know-what.

Any city teachers with any word on Kovac’s current status is welcome to comment or write here at the Neighborhood.  For one thing, we wish Principal Shulman and the folks at PS 14 the very best in the future.

Unless I hear otherwise, this case is closed.

    The removal of Jason Kovac and his side-kick Mildred Jones (who was paid a whopping $28,00 for 4 months to insult and humiliate staff) is the result of a community and union saying “We’re mad as hell and we’re not gonna take it anymore.” He had such disdain for EVERY HARDWORKING staff and parent in our building. The REAL insult is that the DOE placed him in another school to torment others! He should be held accountable as the DOE holds us teachers. The DOE should get rid of the Leadership Academy since it is a failure. New principals are taught how to bully staff to instill fear of standing up for their rights. Just read the union paper to see the same incidents happpening throughout the city. We welcome Mr. Schulman as an educational leader who will move the school forward. We are all getting back to the business of teaching our precious students. ( P.S. Those of us who live in the community know that there are 2 g’s in Throggs Neck).
