I believe everything annie o says about the charter school. (My only source) My guess is she is alot like kinnon. During all that teacher/porn stuff, i was pissed at the liberal responses. posters like carrol M and diana where defending that clown. That guy worked at that school for a couple of months. "The kids loved him". "He did nothing wrong. He should sue the school" I don't think Annieo was defending him. I was hoping Kinnon would fire the guy. There are too many good teachers out there that do not behave the way that guy did. (gay porn movies). Now I like kinnon's style. Annieo, what i mean by you two are alike, I mean strong willed, fearless, but feminine.

OK diana. Maybe you were not the one defending that teacher, but if you were posting at that time you would have defended him. Alright, go ahead (old snarky), give it to me.

You found it fit enough to keep your children enrolled in the schhol after years of knowledge to the circumstances. With that being said I don't think the school is in any shape or form a bad school. I however think you just have a sour taste for Kinnon, so anything he is involved in your going to find complaint with. Your issues with Kinnon, tend to over power everything. Just because Kinnon, is not the brightest star in the sky don't mean he should be bashed for everything. You have been complain about this man for months even years. If you can do a better job them jump on the board of directors or become a city official.

As long as his private life is just that PRIVATE then he was fine. However when videos or teachers fb become public and a wealth of knowledge is put out there concerns arise. Personally I am not going to pass judgement on the teacher as I have never met him.

Of course I defended him. People shouldn't get fired for doing perfectly legal things on their own time; especially not when their employers make a practice of hiring people who've been genuinely disgraced.
