Journal covers APS Role Modeling clause debate, kind of.

Journal education reporter
Andrea Schoellkopf
the Policy Committee meeting
yesterday, kind of. link

Her report begins;

"Should school employees be held
to the same behavioral standards
as students?"

and that is a close as she comes to reporting the controversy
over the Role Modeling clause itself, which is absolutely central
to the whole debate.

In no case shall the standards of conduct for an adult
be lower than the standard for students.
In so far as, one should not look a gift horse in the mouth,
I will settle for the fact that the story is being written at all,
which represents a huge leap forward for the Journal.

The next meeting of the Policy Committee, which was
scheduled for April 6, has been postponed to April 17.

It is again scheduled for 7:30 am, effectively eliminating
the possibility that the meeting might be attended by students,
their parents, or their teachers.
