TDSB – Pot, Kettle……….Anyone?

 

I’ve been wondering if anyone from the school at the centre of this maelstrom whirling about the TDSB (Toronto District School Board) would crawl out of the woodwork?

Well! Lo and behold – someone who has referred to him/herself as “staff” finally did. Below is the text of this persons comment – and the originating email address – of course.

you are cyberbulling Mrs Norman and take into consideration that cyberbullying women in Canada is a criminal offense.”

 

I’m going to take a wild guess and say that the person who posted this comment is a feminist – the clue being that apparently “cyberbullying women in Canada is a criminal offense.”

Does this mean that cyberbullying men ISN’T?

The second thing is this – for a member of “staff” of a school, this person could use some remedial teaching – my five year old niece knows to start a sentence with a capital letter!

Not even going to mention the spelling, the sentence structure, the lack of punctuation. 🙂

What is interesting though is this – I have never communicated with the principal of Roselands Junior School, either directly or indirectly, nor have I directed any commentary towards Mrs. Norman, directly – any commentary was directed at the Principal of that school. (Who just happens to be Mrs Norman)

As a public servant with a serious responsibility for the children attending Roselands Junior School, the principal of THAT school – no matter who they are – has a duty of care towards those children – a duty of care that is (or should be) open to public scrutiny – this is not a private individual with an “expectation of privacy” within his/her “official duties”

To reiterate – Mrs Norman is a PUBLIC servant with a duty of care towards CHILDREN.

So. “Staff” – yet again, a member of the TDSB has achieved the absolute opposite of what they desired – rather than browbeating or “cyber bullying” someone – that would be me by the way – into scuttling away to hide in the corner from the big bad TDSB – you have confirmed – AGAIN – that something rotten IS going on in THAT school.
