School column shows inconsistencies
Perhaps I am out of touch with what is common knowledge among Rockfordians. However, I read this column twice (“Tolerating adult indiscretions taints leadership in Rockford schools,” Nov. 6-12 issue, by Jane Hayes), and I fail to see the author’s point. It is all platitudinous pap.
For example, Ms. Hayes wants to “return to a principled examined lifestyle where powerful bullies and scandals are revealed,” immediately followed with, “Now everything is digitally or publicly exposed.” Quite a feat of direct contradiction.
The whole column is poorly written and contains few facts, jumps from one thing to another with no segue, and even throws in a quote from Socrates. (I am sure he would be pleased.)
From the Nov. 13-19, 2013, issue
