Regardless of the "situation" at the Lake Placid Schools, permitting students to "walk out" of school in protest strongly suggests to me that the Principal does not have control of her school. Letting students "walk out" for any reason is very very poor administrative action on her part. In my opinion, she's caused more problems than they are worth. She should not be in that position and should be removed!

It's high time teachers and administrators took these schools back. When in the hell did students get this option? They are there to LEARN; not protest things they hardly understand!
The parents of these kids should be ashamed that they're raising what is becoming an obnoxious little brat of a kid who's going to expect everything is handed to him/her. Make these kids sit on their asses and learn. No more "nice guy" tactics. We pay huge taxes to have our kids educated and this is unforgivable in my opinion. If the kids don't like it -tough shit. When they're 16 they can quit if they want but they need to remember that now-a-days you can't even get a job pushing a broom without a diploma anymore. Even the army won't take you. The parents, teachers, administrators, elected officials, school boards, etc. all need to crack down on this crap and bring education back to the schools. Get rid of the lousy teachers and administrators and elect board members that aren't afraid to hurt someone's feelings. Big deal if the kids get mad. They'll get over it. And they'll learn that they don't always get their way. That's life. And that's what school is all about.

I support the Board of Education. There are some things going on here that are pretty sad. Knowing how an organizational chart works is important and students are at the bottom. Those that are stirring up the pot have to be dealt with swiftly. Get a life!

I cannot believe that this has gotten so out of hand. One comment made in a private conversation to someone he thought he could trust!! so blown out of proportion. This is being driven by Mulderig and Todd. She just wants a big pay out and is trying to get support because she knew that the community was not happy with the job that she has been doing as they had a petition for her resignation last year, how quickly people forget and forgive her. She does not show professionalism on the job at all. Besides that one comment again in private conversation, no where has anyone said that Dr. Richards has not been professional in the public or with his staff. This is just a smear campaign and mulderig will be laughing all the way to bank. She will take the money and run!! Thank you community for supporting her with our tax dollars.

Kids these days need parents that are authority figures; not another friend. Who else is there to teach them right from wrong. They need to be taught that certain social standards need to be enforced regardless of their opinions. They can certainly express those opinions but their job is to get an education. Will these same kids walk off their jobs when they get older? Could be. Life is full of things that people don't like or care for. Get used to it kiddo. There's a lot of it out there.
Get your collective asses back to school and learn something besides how to beat a computer game. You're the next ones running the world.
