Joe,If you really think about it the kids are just proving why he shouldnt be there any longer. They are getting a petition together and at once saying they think his action were ok. If you ask me that is evadence that he is setting a bad example.
With all due respect, that is NOT what the kids are saying. They all understand that drinking and driving is not only a poor choice, but illegal as well. They also understand and EXPECT consequences to be given and accepted. What they ARE saying is...let the legal matters be handled within a court of law. As far as this affecting his ability to oversee his staff and the direction of FHS...they would like him to continue as principal. Maybe we, as adults, can learn something from these kids. By the way, I know of a wonderful man who received a DUI, but did not lose his job or his position teaching religion to children. He is also a father of 5 very bright, functional children. Dr. Syverson deserves to keep his job.
