That is a little....odd. Not sure what my opinion is.


How do you fire a volenteer ?

Phil Knight might not be amused. In Oregon, you really don't want to cross Phil Knight. Ask the city of Beaverton how that works out.

While it was probably not a good idea as people will always think the worst but that kinda sucks.

My son's cross country and track coach is ridiculously cute. I'm sure he would have gone to prom with her if she had asked. But he's not a dateless loner so it wasn't an option.
 
2012-05-21 09:39:25 PM
I'm sure the school officials would have preferred the kid shoot up the school.

"She said the two danced to a few slow songs but mostly played ping pong and foosball at the prom"

Ping pong and foosball at a prom? Sounds like code for deviant sex acts to me.
 
2012-05-21 09:42:16 PM
Yeeeee, seems innocent enough, but wildly inappropriate. And naïve.

That's just creepy. I had the good sense to go to prom with a friend who was a 26-year-old ex-call girl.

I wish we had ping pong and foosball at prom. We just had shiatty early 2000's hip hop, and she had a fever.

It only seems like a gray area. Even though she's a volunteer, she's still vetted by the school and works under their aegis. As such, her "dating" a student is inappropriate, however well-intentioned and innocent.
 
2012-05-21 09:47:03 PM
That's just f*cked up that she would get fired for doing a good service to an awkward 17 yr old.

Good intentions. But bad idea.
 
2012-05-21 09:47:29 PM
Ah yes, we have to punish people for being nice now, because we have to assume the worst to protect the kids.

Nothing will protect the kids like constantly telling them that everyone is trying to f*ck them at all times. That won't cause any mental issues.

Silliness.

Proving yet again, public education only does things by the book. Zero leeway for using your brain.

Obviously this woman was doing nothing wrong, nothing inappropriate, she was tutoring him, providing him a date, and is an excellent assistant coach. The school is going to lose an amazing head coach, amazing assistant coach, a woman who cares that American youth are getting help with their studies as well as an athletic background, and will lose the donors who provided new fields, new uniforms and good knowledge of the sport.

All because .....

I don't see it as that. I see it as crossing the line of professional conduct. That coach, volunteer or not, held a position of authority over the student.

Very bad things can (and have) resulted from crossing that line. Teachers and students, doctors and patients, lawyers and clients.

I'm not saying what she did was horrible. On the contrary, I think it was quite well intentioned, but also very foolish.
 
2012-05-21 09:54:44 PM
Of course, since it's the daily mail, the *actual* story stopped at the loner kid thinking about going to the prom..

Sorry, I don't understand this comment, because I can't believe you think I'm trolling and it looks like you're giving me a trolling score.

I teach in high school. I'm just telling you how it is, not how it "should be."
 
2012-05-21 10:00:42 PM
Yeah, that's really inappropriate and I don't feel bad for her. People get in trouble being friends with students on Facebook. Hell I would say just the slow dancing regardless of being his date is inappropriate

Indeed. The only way to make progress in this country is by punishing those with good intentions so that they may learn to never try to be nice to someone. That way we can tell who's a terrible person by the fact that they tried to help someone out.

I had a slow dance with the vice-principal of my high school at my senior prom. You could not have found one person at the prom or among the faculty and admins who would've thought it inappropriate. As for not being friends with students? Yeah, good luck trying to run good schools if you tell teachers they can't ever be friends with their students.

I fail to see how her firing is controversial? There are guidelines put in place for professionals, be it teachers or coaches, to follow. I see the good intention, but she's a professional of the district. What stops her from then taking the student out for ice cream? Or going to the movies? Or letting the student touch boob just because he's a loner? Good intentions would be giving some advice, maybe giving suggestions on wardrobe or date ideas. Taking him to prom was never going to change the loner status, probably just ostracize him more. Plus SHE IS 41, that's creepy no matter which way you spin it!

Maybe she was just being nice. Maybe she planned to let him fark her. Maybe she didn't, but she would have eventually decided to let him fark her as the night progressed. That anyone gives a single shiat about it is pathetic and creepy. The people that care about this are the same pervs that keep SVU popular. Get a farking life, it's none of your concern.
 
2012-05-21 10:11:23 PM

Good intentions are a gateway drug to vagina licking.
