As I feared the debate to fire the principal has escalated into the greater community and due to the high emotions causing big issues. Yesterday, three parents yelled at a teacher because they thought she was outside requesting parents to sign the petition to keep the principal. These women confronted the teacher rudely and made her cry. All she was doing was asking first grade parents to sign permission slips for a field trip. Then someone posted anonymously on the petition website that the principal was forcing teachers to get parents to sign the petition. The superintendent had to send out an email clarifying the situation…WITH proof of what really happened. It’s really sad and unfortunate when grown ups bully. What type of example are they setting for children?
