Frank Macchiarola: Judeophile And Mensch

Frank Macchiarola

But she never forgot the compassionate treatment she received during the twilight of her teaching career, which was a direct result of policies implemented by Chancellor Macchiarola.

After leaving the chancellorship, Dr. Macchiarola served as the dean of Yeshiva University’s Cardozo Law School in Manhattan and the president of St. Francis College in Brooklyn. None of the ten schools chancellors under whom I taught has enjoyed – or will enjoy – such a distinguished academic career after his or her stint at the Board of Education.

Dr. Macchiarola ranks with the greatest New York City educators of the past 140 years, who include: Dr. William Maxwell, the first superintendent in 1898 of the city’s consolidated school system; Dr. Morris Raphael Cohen, the influential philosopher at the City College of New York; Julia Richman, the district superintendent for the Jewish Lower East Side during the first decade of the 20th century; Dr. Isidor Isaac Rabi, the great physicist and professor at Columbia University; Dr. Morris Meister, the founding principal of the Bronx High School of Science and the first president of Bronx Community College; and Dr. Diana Ravitch, the education historian.

May Dr. Macchiarola’s memory always be a blessing. Hopefully, an aspiring doctoral student or professor at Columbia University (he earned a law degree and a doctorate in political science from that renowned university) will commit to writing a comprehensive biography of this great New Yorker.

Can teenagers seriously be expected to behave properly when they are surrounded by so much suggestive material? Is it fair to expose them (and ourselves) to so much temptation and then tell them, “Just say no”?

A recent dispute between conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer and White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer centered on the Obama administration’s return to the British government in January 2009 of a bust of Winston Churchill, which had been kept in the Oval Office by President George W. Bush following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

While the Supreme Court recently invalidated the Stolen Valor Act, which imposed criminal penalties on Americans who falsely claim medals for combat bravery, prominent Democrats – including Jesse Jackson, Charles Rangel, Robert Morgenthau and Eric Holder – have repeatedly distorted World War II and Holocaust history for purposes of ethnic politics.
