I am not a teacher. I am a parent with an AP child at the school. I am looking for protection for the children not myself. If it were just me I would have no problem confronting this issue face to face. I’m afraid that if I come forward the repercussions will fall on my child.
I consider myself fair minded, and am new to blogging, but I have had all I can stand. A teacher, in an effort to do the correct thing, came forward Friday and admitted to having posted 1(one) anonymous comment on the Newton Citizen web site. This person was placed on immediate leave, told to clean out the class room, and use the time to look for a job. Indicating that after the leave this person would not be coming back. I believe it was an error in judgment for a teacher to blog, even truthfully, about the school and the job, but isn’t honesty, and taking responsibility for your actions, what we are trying to teach our children. I know this person has the children’s best interest at heart and cares deeply for them. I pray Dr. L Carpenter’s effort in a witch hunt does not cost this person’s livelihood.
