    Thank you for the update. If they were fired for not properly caring for children I don’t see how remaining a teacher can be tolerated. It’s law suits waiting to happen if something else transpires.

    We need to initiate a salute that signifies NO POWER among the rank-and-file Americans who continue to be steamrolled by the elites. It doesn’t matter if you’re black, brown, yellow, indigenous or ingenious….everyone’s being hit by the one-percenters.

    More on #6 please. Who pranked who? Were they fired from the school? What was the prank. Who was the prank on. The rumor I heard was much different and far more serious.
    From T. Peterson: According to reports freshman students were pranked or “hazed” if you will in the locker room. Neither Stevens or the AD were there or witness to it but apparently were held responsible due to their positions. Both are still employed at the school as teachers. It’s also my understanding that as soon as Stevens was aware of it he immediately reported it to administration. Basically “self reported” if you will. It’s also my understanding that he did nothing wrong and did everything by the book but somebody had to fall on the sword. Apparently it was him…and the AD.
