I have been reading in
the Flint Forum the controversy you have been having. At
first I thought you were really petty but after reading
your site I am all for you, keep up the good work, it is
about time someone got involved. I do believe that most
teachers believe they are untouchable and many think
that a major complaint of one person is just a minor
affair so they do not pay attention. You have taken the
action necessary to wake them up, maybe they will be
more observing of complaints they judge as to be
'minor." I am still reading your website so my
opinion may change but so far I think you are right on
and if something bad has happened to the involved
teachers in this matter it is all of their own making.
Keep up the good work, it makes for good reading.

Thanks for the
support. The conduct of numerous teachers both
within the schools and on the mlive forum is telling. They seem to be desperate to
change the discussion from issues of import about schools to petty personal attacks.
far as I can tell nothing bad has happened to any of the
teachers involved. Most had tenure, and they are
still employed and getting raises along with all the
people start out thinking the issue is petty. Make
no mistake the issue was never $5. The issue was
that a group of adults apparently schemed and conspired
to pick on kids. I find it amazing that any adult
would do this, much less teachers.
this happened once, how many other times have the people
parents entrusted to care for our children pulled
