From another post:
I am a parent of a UPrep student and my child will not return there next year!!! The things I've seen at the school are shocking to say the least. Every time I walk into that school the Security Guard has her butt planted in the main office either talking on the phone or "working" on the computer. I'm no principal but isn't the security guards job to be patrolling the halls???? When the bell rings to change class the halls explode with students running, screaming, horse playing -it's unsafe to say the least. My child has told me that Hardy physically man handles students, throwing them into walls, lockers etc. and this is not in response to fights. If that's not bullying what is??? I've seen students on cell phones, listening to mp3 players. That school is falling apart at the seams. As parents we definitely need to take a stand.

It's hard to imagine that a principal would take that kind of liability risk.
Maybe the community needs to start seeing the schools for itself- ie, each month a group of community members can choose a school the group would like to visit during school hours and then arrange a group visit w/ PPS.

I could see this happening, instead of dealing with the kids behavior he his trying to show he is a tough guy. He does not suspend them so inturn he looks good to the Ivory Tower Types.
If this toughguy put his hands on my child and pushed him into a locker for anyother reason except for breaking up a fight, it would be last time
Hardy is a joke, a Bully
Fire Hardy Now

The district really would not want to have 3 principals at Milliones/ U Prep in 3 years.
Can any of the other staff at U Prep be asked to help- like the Gomezes, or professors from Pitt?

SORRY But I have a stupid question. What about the PSCC did they get rid of those?
