Board will fire Russo!  
This article isn't very informative, but it makes it official:


This statement from the board, however, is SO revealing:



I'm just really glad the Board is actually taking action about this. There are some really good teachers at Charter and I'm happy they won't have to work under him anymore.

Recently my elementary school had an issue where the principal was a MUCH bigger creeper, and he'd practically brainwashed the board, so there was a huge conflict between the board and the teachers... So I'm glad this is being taken care of.

And hopefully they'll find someone good to replace him!

P.S. Happy Justice Day!

I probably shouldn't have jumped in, so I'm sorry for my comment. But I didn't mean to imply that it was wrong to agree with his dismissal, especially if he was sexually harassing someone. I don't believe that at all.

It isn't Feminism that bothers me, or that we often have different opinions. I don't really care either way about the gender the of next principal, I guess I just have a knee-jerk reaction when the term misandry or others like it are used. It rubs me the wrong way when misandy and feminism get mixed up together because I feel like the two are completely separate.

I shouldn't have been so accusatory, so I'm sorry for misinterpreting your comment and jumping in when I shouldn't have. I'd like if we could talk about things, especially those we don't exactly agree on, and still be friends.

But on a separate note, I am also curious to see how everything in this situation plays out. Haha, even if it really isn't my business, I wonder who was filing the complaints. I heard that some students are planning a sit in which should be interesting...

It's fine, I don't mind it when you voice when you are upset about something. It's your right, after all :) And I'm glad we at least agree on that; sexual harassment is bad. XD;

I'm not saying misandry is feminism - I obviously know the difference and I don't lump the two together. Misandry is sort of a joke myself and my friends in Pem have together, and we generally joke about it a lot. I'm sorry it offends you, but I don't think it's going to stop; just like the fact that you guys never came to visit me upset me, I accept that it's just how you guys are, and I've come to terms with it. So, I really don't mean to offend you, and I hope you can look the other way in the future, and I'll try not to use it around you.

It's fine, I understand. It's hard to interpret the emotion behind livejournal comments, and there's no hard feelings. I think it's best if we can discuss things and still be friends, right? I just hope you understand that I'm really not as bad of a person as I think you think I am...

Haha, me too! I know it's right that the board didn't say, but Fumika and I were guessing on who it was... Elaine texted me and said that they were all out in the field, haha. I just wish they weren't so stupid about it - whether or not Russo was a good principal, and I'm not saying that he wasn't or was, but regardless, people shouldn't support someone who sexually harasses his employees. In my opinion.
