The resignation of the Jackson Elementary School principal comes as no surprise. He did the right thing.
Had this man been allowed back into the school, I believe that area residents would have been a force to reckon with.
The question are these..
How did he ever get into the Jackson Elementary School in the FIRST place? Who decided that his prior conviction that required him to take ANGER MANAGEMENT and BATTERER'S INTERVENTION classes "would not impact job performance." ??????????? (Click on title to link to full article.)
JACKSON RESIDENTS SHOULD BE OUTRAGED that more was not done to protect their very young children from someone with a background such as this. And a PRINCIPAL nonetheless, whose standards of conduct should be upheld with the utmost scrutiny. What is the example that has been set before them now? Do they feel they can "trust" their authority figures at the school? Do Jackson PARENTS feel like they can trust the decisions made on their behalf concerning the hiring of personnel within their public school?
The Jackson children were placed at risk with poor decision-making. Someone needs to be held accountable.
