MVWSD teacher lawsuit

I agree that the recent lawsuit against Mountain View Whisman School District ("Teacher claims school district failed to prevent rape, assaults," Sept. 6) is a sign that the district needs to change the method and reach of their training if faculty saw things and did not report them — all the more so with the new SB 1343 law in place for 2020. Yet the reporting on the principals was completely one-sided. By law, principals cannot speak about their employees, but the paper openly covers one person's perspective of these principals.

I have met many teachers and parents who have appreciated the work of these two principals. Who would want to work for a district and community that will so readily destroy the reputation of any educator? At the very least, the paper should have waited for court documents to present both sides.
