NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: FDNY’s court-mandated class flaming out. “The first court-ordered class of FDNY trainees — the oldest and most diverse in history — is flaming out. Halfway through the 18-week Fire Academy course, the dropout rate has hit a sky-high 15 percent and could climb to a third of the 318 who started on July 29, according to insiders. . . .In addition, an alarming number of ‘probies’ have been injured — suffering sprains, fractures and other ailments — and put on medical leave, insiders say. Others teeter on the cusp of flunking out because they can’t handle the physical or academic demands.”
