LEVY: Elementary school teacher would ‘feel safer as a prison guard’

Most days over the past year, Brookhaven public school teacher Shawn Goldman felt like he was a prison warden.

Only at his Black Creek Dr.-Lawrence Ave.-area public school — nicknamed Millhaven by staff — the inmates have been running the asylum while teachers stood by helplessly, rendered defenseless by the Toronto District School board’s (TDSB) lax discipline policies and complete denial about what’s truly happening in the trenches.

“There’s physical assaults, verbal assaults … It’s like working in a prison that is out of control,” he said. “I’d probably feel safer as a prison guard.”
