Letter: Saddened by How FSL Debacle Played Out

Conna McCarthy Craigie of Piedmont asks for "reason to prevail over emotion."


For most of the past 20 years I chose to stay at home with my children and fully participate in their school environment. It is important to me that my children have a sense of belonging to a community with a tradition of education that values teachers, celebrates family, achievement and service. Today, I am utterly saddened by how the Fantasy Slut League debacle has played out. The innuendo and inference that developed following the distribution of Principal Kitchen's letter to PHS parents has been a failure to communicate with significant consequences. The accusations, moralizing, minimizing, finger wagging and fist slamming have damaged the reputations of children, their parents and our educational community. Bloggers on the Piedmont Patch have been invited to participate in television and radio shows providing yet another opportunity to publically pontificate on something that has far outgrown its initial factual reality.

Let's continue the conversation in a more productive manner. Going forward, let's replace the chaos with calm and allow reason to prevail over emotion.
