I feel bad for this man. he was doing his job the way he should have. this child has been trouble since he got into school. it sounds like the parents are the same. there kids are taugh that they can do anything they want and you can not do anything to stop them. please the people of west winfield school district do every thing you can to keep this man. i do not know him but this whole matter was not right.

Another kid who parents didn't believe in spanking and now they have an produced an azzhole of a child...still blaming someone else...Probably never took responsibility for themselves when they were young either...I think we need a teachers bill of rights here in New York just like in Louisianian and lets face it...every state...we need to empower teachers not blame them...they are like corrections officers without the protections...some kids need a swift kick if they don't get it at home maybe they should get it in the principles office...

Wow! How times have changed. When I was a kid if I got sent to the principals office and went home to tell my parents the first words out of their mouth was "what did you do - you must have done something wrong" they would never have come to school to defend me!! Parents today come to the defense of their kids and the kid doesn't learn any life lessons and don't take responsiblity for anything. Teachers need our support - they have a tought job and get blamed for everything!!

James LaFountain is a piece of shit! And if people would stop covering shit up, you'd find out that he has done these kinds of things many times before to MANY people's kids. That whole school district is corrupt!

I agree! I used to work at that school and yes it isnt the first time hes done it and that whole system is seriously messed up.Its all about politics,money, and whos kissing whos ass.They cry about the budget and then bring back people that they laid off under a new title and create new positions!They need to get rid of the so called board members that dont do their jobs
