Ok, the rumor mill has it that he was fired for spanking his own child on school grounds. Weird.

Also, if that is what really happened, it's ridiculous. The school uses corporal punishment.

Sounds like another case of goverment (schools) telling parents how to raise your child.

Doesn't this all sound familiar? Didn't Kevin McGaughey also do this type of dismisal to Tim Booth a few years ago and then again to Mrs Wheeler at the elementary school? They are so dramatic at Brookland. They fire their teachers or principals and have them ecsorted off the campus. How dramatic. What an a##!!ho!!##

the ones that really need to go will never be fired because they are in the CLICK. McGaughey is not a good person or a good administrator. His wife was the worst teacher my son ever had ( and he is a straight A student). We got him out of there and he is now at Westside and we love it out there. Much less drama and they actually seem to care about the kids.
my opinion only

Tim Booth deserved it as it was discovered in a surprise state audit he had helped himself to fundraising funds wehn he had personal financial difficulties. He also let a kid off with a slap on the hand for sexually harassing 13 different girls. I lost all respect for him for that. I'm not nsure what happened to Mrs. Wheeler. I heard it was over money, but I do not know for sure.

Coach Martin is very nice, but I'm not sure what he did that they fired him for. And, yes. He was fired, not suspended according to other teachers.

As for Mr. M and his wife, his wife was one of my daughter's favorite teachers. I like hime, but don't work for him so I can't say what he is like to work for. The only thing I have heard is that once he decides something, he's done. You have no input. The only two teachers we have had any problems with at Brookland were Ms. Anita Johnson and Ms Kay Copher. Both are terrible. Ms. Johnson is the one that directly caused DD to hate history and school in general. She had always loved it until 6th grade and being in her class. Ms. Copher just can't teach and is rude to kids and adults both. Thank goodness Ms. DeLoach is able to make up for what damage Ms. Copher does.
