commented on Texas High School Kicks Cheerleader Off Squad For Refusing To Cheer For Her Rapist
As an educator that has in the past worked in public high schools; I am disgusted by this behavior. Another example of a school system that has no moral compass or interest in actually teaching students anything; let alone the right thing. But also keep in mind that a local school district is controlled and managed by the local community it represents.
What does this say about this community as a whole, then? Priorities completely out of alignment with good taste and doing the right thing. Really, they spent what little dollars educational institutions have on going to court instead of actually reprimanding the basketball athlete - as in you have forfeit your right to actively participate in school activities (why is he allowed to continue as an athlete at all?) due to your anti-social behavior.
I have little patience for those who instead of facing the wrath of the community about not letting the violating student play; they instead feign indignation and go after the victim. I for one would rather step on the toes of the entire community than cow-tow to that type of mob rule. The entire community should be ashamed of themselves for looking the other way and allowing this to happen.
