The point was blatantly obvious. Accusations (not documented factual incidents) have been made. Peoples' names, or positions, should not be bandied about when the issue is this serious. IF the charges are true, there will be plenty of time for discussion/gossip whatever you choose to call it. And consequences, obviously. But in the mean time, NOTHING is proven and the individual and most especially his family do not need this speculated about.
Well said, Aggie. I hate it when people set themselves up as judge and jury and make statements they don't know to be true.

If I were a family member, I would say so. I've never lied on this site and do not intend to do so now. I just hate it when a person has spent so much time and money on an education, only to see it ruined by something like this.

I am certainly not siding with the "coach". If he touched this girl inappropriately, then he should be punished to the max. All I'm saying, let's all be sure that a statement is true before we say it is.
These are sad times in our country...people hurting for many reasons. For me, I sympathize with both individuals in this situation. They are both facing some troubling times.

I just think its awful everyone is talking about it so much with so few facts in line. The accused has two children, one still in the school system. For their sake I think everyone should be more careful of what they say and where they point fingers. Im sure its hard enough already for both parties involved and their families.

Would everyone please stop speculating until all the facts come out. But I can give you a fact, he was not let go from Excel for any reason other than that after the economy went south, the school lost a lot of students and they had to let some teachers go. He and one other teacher were the most recent hired and so they were the first let go. That is all there is to that. But please stop this.

You might profit from this saying:
If you didn;t see it with your own EYES,
If you didn't hear it with your own EARS,
Don't invent it with your small MIND,
And share it with your BIG MOUTH!!!

Everyone is pointing fingers and talking about this teacher. Have we thought that the student/accuser could have made it all up.

I am impressed that the principal reported the
Incident ,unlike the county. The Bartow County
Superintendent and BOE would have done a
major coverup. Remember the Sabins. Also the
Tennis coach and swim coach.All incidents were
Reported to the board and superintendent .

I agree possible incidents should be reported properly. However, please remember this is still a POSSIBLE incident of inappropriate behavior, nothing has been stated as fact.
