Nobody else will mention this. You will read it only here
Read the story below and ask yourself what is wrong with the school concerned. ZEG read the report and concluded it was a case of general breakdown of discpline. That's a part of the story but he failed to allow for how heavily our news is censored. I have read very similar reports about certain schools in Britain so I knew immediately what the problem was. I give the answer following the article below
TEACHERS at a western Sydney school have described a culture of fear and violence with students threatening them with rape and murder.
Following revelations that students at Granville Boys High School were trading knives “for protection” more teachers have broken ranks to speak to the Parramatta Advertiser, saying threats and intimidation are routine.
One teacher, who did not want to be identified for fear of retribution, said some staff — male and female — walked to their cars in groups for safety, because of concerns students would carry out their threats.
“They make threats, they say they’ll kill us, they’ll bash us. They say things like, ‘I’ll meet you down a dark alley and rape you’; ‘Wait ’til I see you after school, Miss’. And it’s males and females that they say that to, it’s not just the female (staff),” she said.

It is understood that despite a knife amnesty carried out by the school in June, students are still carrying blades with some calling themselves “street pharmacists”.
It is claimed they have methamphetamines or “ice” and pills at school.
“They’re carrying knives (and) we have no control over them — what’s to stop them from killing one of us?” a female teacher said.
Of 20 students interviewed by the Advertiser, 14 said they were aware of at least one other student who had brought a knife to school. Four said they knew students who had brought drugs to school.
The school has been credited with taking steps to rebuild its reputation and the environment for students, including the establishment of a before-class cafe run by students following the 2011 stabbing of a student in a schoolyard brawl.
A NSW Department of Education spokesman said possession of any illegal substance or implement was not tolerated in NSW public schools.
The spokesman said since recent reports of a knife amnesty, no teacher at the school had raised weapons issues with the principal. “No question of personal safety involving the behaviour of students has been raised with the principal by any staff member,” he said.
NSW Teachers’ Federation president Maurie Mulheron called on the Department of Education to investigate the claims. “Any concerns that have been raised where safety is compromised, we expect the department to investigate the allegation,” Mr Mulheron said.
In a video leaked to the Advertiser that was filmed on school equipment and screened with executive approval at the school’s 2013 Year 12 formal, students can be seen making religious slurs.
The students are heard ordering a “McJesus and holy water” at a McDonald’s drive-through — as well as fighting and degrading the school.
In an email to principal Linda O’Brien, sent to all staff from a teacher, the “insensitive” nature of the video was raised.
“I am writing to you all about a segment of the video which made reference to the Jesus and holy water (sic)”, the email read.
“Students may not understand the significance of this, but as a teacher we have the responsibility to teach the right thing to our students. This is a public school and this sort of insensitive comment should be avoided.”
A NSW Department of Education spokesman said Ms O’Brien “was on leave during the production and screening of a video produced by students.” The spokesman said Ms O’Brien had not seen the video.

Did you pick it up? The Education Dept. is in denial for a very good reason. I knew immediately what to look for so went straight to the school website. We read there: Ninety-nine per cent of students are from a non-English speaking background.
To be blunt, it is just Muslims being Muslims and showing their usual contempt for the rest of us. Their religion teaches them that contempt. Start reading the Koran at Surah 9 if you doubt it
