School Chancellor Says: “If Ya’ll Would Start Strappin’ On Jimmy Hats, We Wouldn’t Be Worried About Overcrowding”

Well damn shawty, tell them how you REALLY feel!

Just two weeks after she took the job of schools chancellor, Cathie Black has already put her foot in her mouth — reportedly telling parents that her solution to overcrowded schools is “birth control.”

“Could we just have some birth control?” Black said during a meeting of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s school overcrowding task force on Thursday in lower Manhattan.

“It would really help us out a lot,” she added.

The joke drew some laughs from the audience and came after Eric Greenleaf, a PS 234 parent and NYU professor, presented findings that showed lower Manhattan will need another 1,000 elementary seats by 2015, reported today.

In another bone-headed comment, Black told a parent after the 35-minute forum that the impending budget cuts she had to make are like trying to decide which child should be killed.

Keep it up lady. They’re probably interviewing other people for your job as we speak. SMH
