Laguna has other issues besides two teachers leaving and the students response to this through their actions showing support. I am happily surprised that students are standing up for something they object to and believe strongly in. I find it very hard to believe that Doug Jessup is responsible for all of this. He seems to me to be much more of a team player. Perhaps it is time for those responsible and working behind the scenes to also step up, take their position publicly and not allow Mr. Jessup to take full responsibility. At the same time, it might be a good idea for everyone to refer back to the student handbook about core values, integrity, behavior towards others and other ongoing types of conduct that the founders of this school clearly had in mind years ago. Surely the Laguna community of parents that want the very best for their children, do much to support the school and local community, will want the values and behavior in the school handbook respected and upheld not only by the administration, but by all that attend as well. Treating others as we want others to treat us is a lesson that starts early. It needs constant attention to continue to be nurtured and to not get lost along the way. Honesty, fair play, kindness, inclusion and humility.... Respectfully submitted with hopes for the very best for Laguna Blanca in 2009.
