you are actually standing up for this guy? wow,, thats all I can say, makes me think the rumors up here in the northern states about NC is true, incest and sexual child abuse is totally acceptable, no big deal to ya'll.
They did an investigation, the results of the investigation were, he was given one hour to either quit or be kicked out on the curb,, what does that tell ya?
Give it a few more days, the accusations will come flying out of the woodwork against this #$%^& who called himself a principal, and in his own words,, "just one mistake" well,, thats all it takes to finally get busted! JUST ONE MISTAKE!!! HUH!!

It looks as though you misinterpreted my words.I'm in strict opposition to this crime against nature!!!!!
One mistake was all it took for a 9 year old minority black child to have his civil liberties raped by a "man" that's supposed to protect him.Instead he chose to impose his will on him,and every child in that school with the conoctation's pertaining to charging one of God's Innocent Children with sexually related innuendo which is likely in his own mind.Not the child's.He wouldn't make it in Jersey!

This indecent incident will be pursued by the A.C.L.U.. Anyone that wants to challenge this fact has lost their mind.We need to delete obsolete antiquated teacher types so their childhood regressions of cruelty aren't taught with tax dollars.Let them spew that paranoia in their own family.Which is generally where people's phobias are cultured.It would be a fair gamble to say he has washed many mouths out with soap,and afterwards felt vindicated.Those would not qualify as mistakes though.That would likely fall in the category of "a sanitary necessity".People such as this fuel my phobias,and defenses.

Ahh, it's always a true delight to discover another dysfunctional school system in America. Is it true that the principal is being replaced by his cousin?

I am standing up for this guy.

The principal says in the letter he sent home...

1.) The boy was NOT suspended for calling a teacher cute.
2.) He was suspended for repeated profanity and disruption of class (n & b-words).
3.) He had been warned, and a guardian had met with him to address the problem.

The boy's story sounds unbelievable, and pretty typical when asked to explain a suspension to his parent. He simply told the least offensive part, omitting the profanity.

The Principal refused to make any public statement to the public, to protect the privacy of the boy.

We learned about the facts from the mother posting the letter from the school, and local reporting.

Strange. Fox News is reporting that he refused to resign and so was fired. What is the truth here? And why is there almost nothing available on this story?

Funny...that's not what the substitute teacher reported. Nor anyone else, for that matter.

That's because the media only published the boy's version. It is against the law for the Principal to speak publicly about any student.

However, I was able to find the suspension-letter (I posted the link), which describes the actual justification for suspension. The local media (the station that first broke the story) kept it in a public archive online.

The substitute teacher didn't report to the media - she can't. However, I read an online local paper and saw countless facebook comments from people in the district supporting the Principal. Friending them, I was able to learn why the boy was sent to the Principal (and it fits exactly with the claims of the suspension notice).

Apparently, the boy had been trying to get the other students to say the teacher was attractive in class. He had been told to stop repeatedly. The other students complained. When the teacher would walk by, he would make his comments so she could hear. Eventually, he was sent to the Principal. He had been warned about disrupting class and profanity, so he was suspended.

Of course, in retrospect it should have been obvious. Little boys aren't going to tell the complete story, and his version was quite unbelievable. Anyone who was being objective would have realized the boy probably did something other than just call a teacher "cute" in private... teachers with decades of experience don't just start suspending kids over that.

so your only form of proof of what you saying to protect this beast is facebook comments? or more loosly known as rumors? Good God, do you even know what the word truth means? If what you are saying is the absolute factual truth the principal would be sitting at his desk in the school right at this minute, instead I am sure he is looking for a good defense lawyer to represent him in the next charges he knows are coming.

He is stating his "facts" on facebook rumors, he has no actual documents to back up his statements, he is just spreading rumors to cause more trouble.

I guess i did mininterprete your words,, sorry about that,, I just do get riled when anyone treats any child of this world like that, very unjust in my opinion, and the children are so vulnerable to mistreatment of sick minded adults.
And thank God, for once you won't find one media outlet supporting this principal.

The facts detailing the warnings and events came from the suspension-letter, signed by the Principal. That is pretty strong documentation.

Only the story from the substitute came from Facebook. You can completely ignore her story if you want, but I find it quite a bit more reliable than the boy's version of events.
