With the ravages of declining educational resources, it seems a pity to let a seemingly talented teacher go based on some comments that may have been blown out of proportion. Yes, the comment was off color. Yes, middle school children are especially impressionable. And absolutely yes, we want to protect our children. But protecting them does not justify acting out of panic and fear. We parents can be awfully threatening ourselves when we feel our children are potentially in harm's way and this issue should be addressed with painstaking attention to details. The school board must be jack of all trades with this matter. Mediator, supporter, judge, rational thinker, spin doctor, and security. The complaining parents must be heard. And the offending/victimized teacher should be, as well. A couple of meetings, all involved parties present, may diffuse the situation to the satisfaction of all. And we all know the media just LOVES stories that incite, but harping on a thing without equally vehement follow up makes things worse for everyone.
