we need teacher accountability but the unions wouldn't stand for it.

You're kidding, right? We take what for now is considered an accident and use it as an opportunity to attack teachers' unions?

I guess some people will use anything as a reason to attack teachers.

Was the admission for a psychiatric evaluation, perhaps? Afterall, it IS the Hyde school! "Alternative" schooling for the rich and wanna-be famous......

Silly person, Hyde is a "private", altrenative boarding school for troubled/wayward teens. They have no teachers union represntation there at all. It is sooo liberal however, that the deliquents attending the school may have been permitted to form a "union"..........

Somebody local should INVESTIGATE. Did this teacher KNOW what he was doing? Hyde School routinely hires teachers "qualified" only by their adherence to the Hyde School character education cult. Some of them might not even have their bachelor's degree.

It's not a requirement at any private school. The teachers at Hyde do a great job. The students there work very hard to overcome their issues, and the character education program is a tremendous help for students and their families. If you haven't been there, you should learn more about before turning negative.
Hyde School is a sham

Guess what? I'm real negative. The teachers do a lousy job. The students turn on one another like 'Lord of the Flies', orchestrated by the staff. It is VERY unhealthy. Didn't help me one bit. I had more issues coming out than I did going in.

Unless you have been to Bath and actually experienced the culture, you don't know anything.

Hyde Schools is a very scary place. Yes, there are supporters of Hyde, but the majority could be described as Cultists!! I'm sure there are plenty of Catholics who still support the Catholic Church and have been helped by Priests there. This does not discount the terrible things being hidden by the owners and staff at Hyde.

Hopefully because of the scandals coming out of some major universities, more victims will come forward to report Hyde and the sexual cover ups there.
Of course Hyde knows

Speaking of cover ups, why is Hyde School funneling students in need of therapy to an "outside counselor" who was involved in a SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH A STUDENT back when she was a teacher at Hyde?
