Ilene Feldman, a teacher at the HS for Innovation in Advertising and Media is accused of taking the ultimate dive on camera at the school to avoid a classroom observation and possible termination as an untenured faculty member.
Feldman was allegedly videotaped staging a fall on the day of her scheduled visit. The school was suspicious because she had had a previous poor evaluation and was facing possible termination. The video reportedly shows her throwing herself down a school stairwell. Witnesses claim that Feldman is shown listening for anyone approaching to stage the fall: “Feldman, who then appeared to hear someone coming, grabbed her handbag with her right hand, held the railing with her left hand, and slowly fell to the 2nd floor landing,”
