Crimes and Misdemeanors

Morality. Been thinking about it a lot lately, especially in how it relates to the happenings in my school. We can go by the theory that children are all moral, in that they do not have the capacity to understand nor comprehend immorality, that they are the innocents. Educators, those that should know better, can be either or. We are given someone else's kids and for six hours and twenty minutes we are responsible for the lives. No other way to put it. That is a fact. I don't want to delve into curriculum, instruction, etc... because in my opinion you can't have that if you do not have a safe, warm, inviting environment for students. Am I making sense?

So this brings me back to the morality, or the lack of it in my school. Are these administrators, John Deacon, and Numb Nuts, are they moral people? The students certainly are. The teachers certainly are. But to me the moral people in my school portrayed as selfish, and self centered, and the administrators and their enablers are, hiding behind their religious teachings, in this case directives from Tweed, to protect and justify their actions, or inactions.

I just want to know if these two can look in the mirror at night and like what they are.

I say when it comes to public education in this city: "What's morality got to do with it?"
