  1. I was waiting to see who had the fortitude to comment on here. It (professional and personal misconduct) is a minefield and any misstep may well be your last. This guy was a (smart) fool with a libertarian streak (pun intended).

    Many private school teachers (myself included) have clauses in our contracts that we will not communicate with “the media” without permission of the principal.

    I wonder sometimes if commenting here breaches that clause.
