The Puyallup School Board meeting Monday night was a classic example of gross ignorance caused by lack of knowledge. The Rogers High School students and supporters, while appropriately passionate and loyal to Principal Scott Brittain, are sadly misguided and in many cases highly immature.
It is obvious to anyone with a shred of common sense that the issues involved in Brittain’s situation go way beyond what the school district and Superintendent Tony Apostle can discuss in the media. While this mob has the right to stand in front of Apostle and denigrate him and take personal shots at his daughters, he has to sit and take it all and be the ultimate professional that he is.
Those in the know understand there is a backstory that will never come out, but ask yourself a simple question: If this was about a choir trip and a zero-hour class, why the resignation?
