A city teacher with a painful pulmonary condition says a heartless high school principal is pushing him to resign by giving him “unruly” freshmen who torture his ticker.

Monte Kuhr is suing the city, claiming that Principal Henry Rubio and other administrators at A. Philip Randolph High School in Harlem ignored his physician’s request last year to give him senior classes.

The upper West Side man made the request because “upper classes were the source of fewer student behavioral problems,” the lawsuit says.

Instead Kuhr, 46, received five freshmen classes in the fall of 2009, leading to “high-intensity interactions with misbehaving students,” the suit says.
