Now that Bost does not have his own school, isn't it nice to know that his wife does? Julie Nariman is Principal of the High School For Language and Innovation, also in the Bronx. I received an email about Mrs. Bost today, and here it is:
"Disgraced principal Richard Bost from the Fordham Leadership Academy in the Bronx has gotten his wife, Julie Nariman, her own brand new school that just opened this September with a freshman class. The name of this new school is Language and Innovation High School housed in the Columbus Campus in the Bronx, famous this year for Mr. John Chase's dismantling of the other new school that came into the campus.
Ms. Nariman has no clue as to what she is doing and has hired several staff from her husband's school because they were promised new jobs if they did not protest against him. M.s Nariman does not even know that the entire campus knows her deal and her submissive staff members who Mr. Bost tamed.
This is the kind of crap that is coming in as principals. You have back door deals with SCUM! Two new schools came into the campus, one principal is GONE due to his sick behavior and the other is the wife of another sexual lunatic. The other media sources have yet to be told this information.
She is a nasty _________ who can't even control less than 100 students as she has now. She is the laughing stock and she's next to go. Her students are wild but her staff are mostly foreigners who obeyed Mr. Bost and have now come to her unit.
Do the research, you will see that this is true. The DOE should be so embarrassed! Then again, this is what's out there."

The vision: The High School for Language and Innovation, opened in September 2011 with 80 students in the Christopher Columbus Educational Campus. It was created for students who are learning to speak English, who love to express themselves, and who want to become leaders. The goal, according to founding Principal Julie Nariman, is for students to double their vocabulary in every class and to improve their proficiency to a college level.
The reality: Students learn English in every class—including science and math. They read aloud, in unison, as a way to encourage quiet kids to speak up. Classes are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Friday, when the academic day ends at 2 p.m. and students choose from electives in dance, Tae kwon Do, art or theater. Korean is offered as a foreign language. Nariman, who was the assistant principal of English as a Second Language at Long Island City High School, also taught English as a Second Language in Korea.
Many students need an adjustment period to get past their quiet phase, because in their native countries they were taught to participate minimally when communicating with authority figures, a guidance counselor told us. Students stay in the same classroom, leaving only for lunch and physical education. The administrator we spoke to said that keeps the students safe. In its first year, 60 percent of the students were Spanish-speaking. Attendance is high, at 96 percent.
Admissions: Admission is open to students with low English proficiency who have lived in the U.S. for four years or less. Priority goes to Bronx students. Applicants will be interviewed by school staff. (Jacqueline Wayans, high school fair, October 2011)
