You can't forgive anyone who preaches zero tolerance. They close that door on themselves. He had hundreds of students searched by security officers who thrust their hands into each kids pockets. No suspicion, no threat, just random searching. Unconstitutional and illegal.

I agree, he is already being punnished. I don't think this man should lose his job. I think this man should have to attend AA meetings and drug and alcohol counseling, losing his job is not going to teach him anything. Losing his job does nothing for the problem which is so apparent in our society. He made a mistake, he did a dumb thing. He did not hurt anyone, thank god. However, he needs to be forgiven and given his job back with restrictions.
What the ...?
Who cares what HE learned from all this? And I do forgive him, I just don't want him in charge of anything. Losing his job does plenty for the problem of having a pompous substance abuser as principle. That problem is gone. Zero tolerance, right... I think that's what he said. And if you know anything about AA its a "program of attraction", they don't want people who are forced to attend.

Is this the same Donald Shevlin who taught at Smithtown HS East in the 1980's ? I believe the rumor back then was that he was dating some students. I guess the rumor can be counted as truth given his situation now.
