Designed to Depress

Tiny room, 2 stories down below ground level. Bare concrete walls. 3 narrow unreachable windows, 25 feet above. Empty water cooler and no payphone. No visitors allowed. I am a tenured NYC school teacher with allegations made against me by a brand-spanking new Leadership Academy Principal. This is where I must report 5 days a week, 7 hours a day and you say things could be worse?

I agree with you there but things could be worse you could have been falsely accused by a student on sexual issues and not be paid for up to 90 days.

Even worse you could be Joel Klein's spouse. Think about being with him at night!
