Haven't students in Ypsilanti been subjected to enough problems already over the last couple years?! What with reports of school over crowding and issues of safety in the new consolidated district, some of those accusations coming in anonymously to Purple Walrus Press in 2013 from teachers, enough already! For all of the talk in this nation about about the importance of positive role models for students and young people how ironic is it that the principal of a major high school in our area is facing federal charges for bribery and that school business was sited as a tool in the alleged scheme.
Aren't teachers and school administrators supposed to embody positive ethics, morals, decision making and setting the bar high as far as values or whatever you would like to call it? Apparently, that way of thinking is as out-dated as letter men jackets and Bobby socks. IF these allegations are true what a pitiful example Tanya Bowman and 12 other Detroit Public Schools officials have made for students.
