Caught in the act

Here’s how the offense is described: “He was observed reading a book at one of the only sporting activities he has been known to attend this year.” This is from a list of charges contained in a letter sent by aggrieved parents to the superintendent of the school district, seeking ouster of the principal of Austin High. Another among the list of charges is that he has cut the number of pep rallies. There are further allegations, but these stand out and are treated in the letter just as seriously as the others. Here’s the story in today’s local daily (byline Raven L. Hill). Is snubbing school tradition a misdemeanor, or a felony, or merely grounds for seeking termination of employment? It’s a good thing I was never caught reading by flashlight under the bed-covers when I was a kid. There might have been penalties up to and including almost anything.
