JJ SAYS: The message is the thing

It isn’t enough for the school district to say, “We reported the incident to police.” If there is a problem on our school grounds something must be done about the problem. Parents have the right to not only expect, but to know with reasonable certainty that their children of whatever age are safe on our campuses.

That being said, those calling for the dismissal of Petaluma High Principal David Stirrat are so far off base as to not even be in the same ball park with rationality. He is a good administrator who has done much for Petaluma High. In cutting off Seitz’s microphone, the Petaluma High administration was simply following a Petaluma School District policy that had long been in place.

The unfortunate outcome is a black mark on what is a very good high school. The fortunate outcome is that it served Seitiz’s purpose of bringing to light a problem that needs to be discussed and rectified. Business as usual is not an option.
