>Everybody wants to take the side of the '***poor*** little woman'
uh, yeah, that's exactly the point. She and the other teachers/staff are poor, but the superintendent got a 27% raise.
Holy shit, he got a $30,000 raise. I don't think I could have stayed quiet, either. Meanwhile teachers are using their own money to buy supplies.
This guy is an idiot. A situation that already looks bad for him got worse the moment the teacher got arrested, and now he is digging a bigger hole.
"Stop resisting," said the Marshall in a moment of unchecked irony.
He's very correct that most everyone wants to take her side...so his plan to get people to his side is to be obtuse?
Edit: oh, he literally said "everyone" not "most everyone". good god.
It's been my experience that the higher a position someone has in the school district, the stupider and less qualified for the job they are.
When you're in a hole, stop digging.
Fuck doubling down, this guy is going for the triple!
"If the teacher has the authority to send a student, who is acting up in the classroom that she can't control, out of the classroom to the principal's office, under our policy we have the same rules."
~ Anthony Fontana, School Board President
He thinks of the teachers just like students that they can punish and silence.
I went nuts when I read the president’s comment comparing the situation to school.... that kicking her out and having her arrested and sent to jail was like a teacher sending a child to the principles office. Ridiculous. A total slap to the face on top of the situation. Apparently standing up for what you believe or for what is right is now like a rebellious 5th grader acting out.
Edit: changed superintendent to president
>“Well she made a choice. She could have walked out and nothing would have happened.”
Translation: He's saying "She should have shut up." She had a legitimate problem with the school board handing out raises to administrators and giving teachers nothing but heavier workloads. He likely made the decision to give the superintendent a raise and felt attacked when his decision was criticized, that simple action qualifies as "uncivil" to him.
If you ask me, He ~~should be held responsible for~~ is *attracting* death threats against his fellow administrators. **Edit**: Not that the people actually giving the death threats aren't themselves any less responsible, I am in no way defending anyone giving death threats.
He found more gasoline to put the fire out
