The “Chief Academic Officer” for Benton Harbor Schools recently celebrated the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel.

Real News Michiana first reported Tiana Batiste-Waddell “loved” a Facebook post by South Bend Black Lives Matter calling for a protest in defense of Palestine after Israel responded to the weekend attack.

“All out for Palestine!” the BLM post said.

Real News Michiana pointed out Batiste-Waddell is a staple at Black Lives Matter protests and is a key racial agitator.

However, it’s not clear how much black lives matter to Tiana Batiste-Waddell, as she oversees chronic failure in Benton Harbor schools and seems to do little about it.

According to, just 1 percent of Benton Harbor students are proficient in math, while 3 percent are proficient in reading. 93.1 percent of the students are black.

Overcrowded classrooms don’t seem to be the issue: the district has a 22-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio.

Money doesn’t seem to be a problem, either.

The site reported Benton Harbor schools spent $16,140 per student last school year.

Nevertheless, Batiste-Waddell, who hawks her services as an educational consultant, argued just today that she has been in education for “a couple of decades now,” and that “building authentic relationships across stakeholder groups is key to the success of our students.”
