The ex-bank robber and former Vincent Bias (now Talib Sadiq) who I blogged about here, has undergone a transformation worthy of the late Mother Teresa. At least, if you believe the comments served up by his supporters.
Prison is supposed to be about rehabilitation and Mr. Sadiq, to his credit, seems to have learned that lesson well. But the psychodrama, over a middle-school counseling job, has become absurd. Even a well-known state legislator has gotten involved in pleading his case to the Boston-based Dept. of Education, after the DOE rejected his application for a license. (They won't disclose why they did so.)
A sidebar to this story is the bureaucratic rigamarole involved in the hiring and denying process (CORI background checks, committees, appeals) - again a ridiculous amount of human resources expended over a job that has nothing to do with delivering (their word) basic academics to the students.
P.S. The fourth letter is from a well-indoctrinated adult who raps the paper for using the word "rap."
