What’s Good For The Goose…
WOKV obtained the investigation in to Joyce Quiller, who teaches with The Bridge to Success program at Ribault. The Duval County School District first began this investigation in January, after receiving complaints from students and parents about Quiller’s conduct.
The investigation shows eight students in 10th and 11th grade met with the District, seven of whom accuse Quiller of using a range of profanities and having a general disregard for their work. One student said Quiller asked a student who came to school without a pencil “What is the point in coming to the mother f****** class if you do not bring materials”. Another heard Quiller tell a student to “Shut the f*** up”. When a separate student asked for make-up work, Quiller allegedly told her “I am not going to help you with s*** else”. Still another said Quiller “criticizes him and calls him a N*****.
Complaints…from those who would use the same language on the street or at home. How is it that these pompous hooligans with their sanctimonious audacity think they have a moral leg to stand on? Quiller is uttering the same verbiage as every other politician, journalist, athlete, etc. Sure, her language is colourful, but it’s fraught with anger and frustration. Isn’t that enough reason to use it? There are plenty of others who use it is similar ways. She’s getting called out on this because she’s an easy target and not a politician, journalist, athlete, etc. That and she’s directing the invectives at students.
Still, I find it ironic the offense is taken at all. Any one of them would say the same sorts of things if they were in the same frame of mind.
