Dear Mr. Goodwin,
I hope that the Washington Post misquoted you in today's article about the
alleged armed robbery committed by students that attend your school.
"Whitman Principal Alan Goodwin said yesterday that the five students were
being allowed to attend class and finish the school year because the alleged
incident took place outside of school and because none of the five had been
involved in any disciplinary problems."
If this is true you have shown poor judgement and I urge you reverse this
decision and then resign due to the obvious mistake you have made.
Given the over-population of lawyers in this nation the school system's hands were tie by procedures and only when the students were formal charged could they be barred from school.
