Let me get this straight... a middle school principal (making $90,000 per annum) willfully violates the law and is not terminated from the school system? Obviously I am not an attorney, but isn't this at the very least fraud? Let's call it what it is and stop trying to minimize the actions. There is no excuse that a school system administrator should not know this is an illegal act - if she was not aware then she shouldn't have been a principal to begin with. What is even more perplexing to me is that we wonder why parents are choosing to send their kids either to private schools or move across the county line to send their kids to other schools... Could it be that the moral climate set by our teachers combined with the apparent tolerance of these actions by our local school board has something to do with it? I'm glad that my child doesn't go to this school - that it is okay to steal and/or lie is not the lesson that I want to teach my child.
Wow... if the teacher has less than 30 years in and cheats on state tests that is tied to funding (again, an issue of fraud), it's okay to terminate them but if they have 30 years or more, they can be rewarded with retirement? I suppose the moral of this story is that it's okay if you cheat, lie, or steal - just don't get caught.
