"Taking the side of the kids is not just being nice, not being a missionary. It is an act of reasonable solidarity. In the long run, the old adage, an injury to one goes before an injury to all, applies to kids and teachers. The teacher who allows his kids to be sold out, will soon be sold himself." Dr. Rich Gibson
