What I find interesting is the almost total lack on questions about 
whether the lawsuit might be right?? It leaves me wondering how many 
others know he is right and are not surprised at all. I am hearing from 
other teachers and leaders in the area that he is right. The big thing for 
me is that our kids/students shouldn't have been brought into this are 
all. It is selfish and just wrong of the teachers to have exposed the kids 
to the controversy. Just who are the adults here?
