If you think the situation at the Elementary School in Twillingate is scandalous, check out the problems at Miramonte Elementary School in Los Angeles.
The entire staff of the
elementary school will be replaced while sexual abuse charges against
two teachers are investigated. Some 100
teachers and 50 administrative staffers are leaving the school and
being replace. School board officials felt a drastic change was needed to restore parent's confidence in the school.
Miramonte, has 1,500 students. It
was plunged into crisis when teacher Mark Berndt was arrested for
allegedly feeding his semen to at least 23 blindfolded students over several years. Days later, his colleague Mark Springer was arrested for allegedly fondling his students.
So, yea the teacher out in Twillingate showed some poor judgement, and certainly she is paying a price for it, but folks put it all in perspective.
