I don’t believe the punishment fits the crime here. I hope he appeals. Even though the school board voted unanimous, they can still be a bunch of sheep. The slanderous statement made by Stacey Kiebach did not need to be printed, unless she wants to be sued for harming Timothy’s chances of getting a job. It’s tough enough for a 50 y/o to get a job.

I never read anywhere that Mr. Oonk was warned of his “behavior”. Remember the South Park episode “Death Camp of tolerance”? Mr. Garrison got away with a lot more than that. Season 6 on southparkstudios.com if you’re interested.

first of all..as a current student of mr.oonk..
i think this is just a way to fire him just because his health problems and social life isn't going that well..and theyre finding any excuse to fire him...i will try to do whatever it takes to get his spirit and him back..I would be willing to go to court n' show them that they dont know crap about mr.oonk...he's such a respectful teacher and if anything...all you people going by facts are messed up because you dont even know him!!

I don't think referring to your teacher as Mr. Oink is very respectful at all!
