As a father of 3 in the Reeds Spring School system, I back Mr. Collins actions 100% and hope my kids end up in one of his classes.
Too many times our teachers take the easy way out under the guise of being politically correct, Mr. Collins did the right thing and stood up for a student who couldn't stand up for himself.
Thats the kind of teacher and role model missing from our schools that I would like my kids to learn from.

Old news, but there is TWO sides to every story. Collins may not be the saint that everyone thinks he is. Behind closed doors he is a different person. Think about it. It will ALL come out some day!

I had Mr. Collins as a teacher the entire four years I was in high school and watched him stand up for children who were being picked on. I loved him as a teacher, he made me actually want to learn. I thank him so very much for his influence.
