The Columbus Dispatch : Teacher, 60, accused of making girl drop pants
This happened a few days ago at my school. I was fairly close to the girl in question.
Other than just thinking I'd share, I'm curious about all your opinions on a few things - is it really right to leave out the name of the mother? Yes, this compromises the privacy of the child, but should the family be expected to exchange NOTHING in order to ruin this woman's life, without any proof - suggestive or solid - that she did anything wrong?
Also, it's a grand example of media incompleteness and/or censorship. This article says nowhere that the student mentioned has been held, more than once, in the psychatric ward, and has a lengthy history of troubles over her incomplete first year of high school. She does not have out-of-classroom privileges. I think these things severely damage her credibility.
This customer-[or student]-is-always-right mindset certainly is flawed. It eliminates the need for evidence or probable cause -_-.
