Honest question: do we have audio of this? Is the "they" an accurate quote, or was that the writer paraphrasing?

Probably going to get jumped on for saying so, but it may be premature to pile on (at least for that particular thing). The entire list of things looks like shorthand, so I don't think that they're verbatim quotes.

Edit: actually, looking at it further, I see quotation marks around direct quotes, but none around the "they" statement. I'm willing to wager 50 bucks to someone's favorite charity that it's a paraphrase, and he didn't intimate that it was the offenses fault or throw someone under the bus.

Your student to teacher ratio is good. I counted the chairs. Is this a private school?

21 little learners...Pike Road Elementary...I am very blessed. A new, five-year-old public school system...lots of student and teacher voice and well-worth the commute.

I was a administrator for 10 years, in a private school. Our student teacher ration was 20 to 1. We killed the ACTs. We had really good teachers. I'm sure you are a good one. Everyone in our church, home-schools now. P.S. I was also the high school basketball coach. LOL

Thank you so much; it's a calling, and I surely try! It's definitely a trend to homeschool for some very excellent reasons. I'm in a very good situation...

Privately funded schools, always suffer financially. Briarwood probably doesn't. People wouldn't pay their school bills. We finally closed and went the home-school route.

One of the stores I call on at work is Troy plus Troy is where my degree comes from. We actually lived in Montgomery for a year a while back. South Alabama...home sweet home...

One of my sisters is a teacher in Georgia. Actually now she is an assistant principal. I appreciate the heck out of teachers. Thank you for all you do!

That had to have been so tough. You landed and now you are thriving. Seasons are very, very real, but God always takes care of His own.

You're welcome! And thank you!  It's incredible to be part of the "mother of all professions," It's surely a new adventure every day!

I admire what yall do. A lot of teachers had a huge impact on me and I see what they do for my kids. You really don’t get enough credit!

I don't know if that was his intent but any time a coach says "they" instead of "we/us" or "I" then it leads me to believe that they're trying to pass the blame to someone else. Good coaches, IMO, blame themselves first and look at what he/she can do better rather than saying the team had "opportunities they failed to seize".

Look at the brains on T!
