The Knoxville News Sentinel has a breaking story about a Knox County School, he said, she said lawsuit. The interesting twist is that he is a fourth grade student and she is a principal.
On May 13, 2005 I posted about the confusion that occurred on the Hallerin Hilton Hill morning talk show on NewsTalk 100 in Knoxville. All sides had their position aired on the HHH show over the course of a couple of days.
Principal Summa along with Knox County Schools PR Guy Russ Oaks appeared one day. Attorney Pope and Luke Whitson’s mother appeared on another day. There was and continues to be a difference of opinion between the two sides when each appeared on the HHH show and apparently today, as well. It appears that a judge or jury will determine, just exactly who is telling the truth.
Knox County Schools received a letter appearing to be from Attorney Pope and the school district responded via press release on May 13, 2005. No word from the school district since the filing of the litigation.
One solution can be for the school district to implement a Release Time policy. I will post about Release Time at a later date, until then let the litigation begin.
