A late summer squall appears ready to storm all over the Académie Lafayette board of directors.
In one of those totally stupid moves that only amateur governing bodies seem capable of, the Académie Lafayette board, instead of fully and transparently communicating their efforts to the parents involved, has sat on making any final decisions regarding reported cases of inappropriate behavior toward a few students by one of Académie Lafayette’s (now gone) teachers.
To be clear there is as of this moment no indication of abuse of the students, but a few parents plainly laid out the inappropriate behavior to the board by said teacher last year.
The board promised a response but the parents are still waiting. 1
Expect to read/hear more about this in the near future…
- Ed.’s Note: It turns out the board did not promise a response to the parents involved; they apparently simply heard the parents out. Yes, that does suck, but the preponderance of the board are attorneys, with the odd political creature and quasi-professional board-sitter added to leaven the mix. If the board would not move to oust Marvin Lyman after his disturbing public performance last September, it certainly wouldn’t dare move on teacher’s inappropriate behavior before, forgive us, “lawyering up.” ↩
