Principal "Porn Passer"

From the sounds of things, the local teachers union, the school board, and some of the folks in town feel that Mr. Rohrbaugh’s decision to use a TAXPAYER funded PUBLIC SCHOOL computer to pass e-mails containing explicit pornography is not receiving ample discipline. So my question is… why did the school board not do the right thing and hand down the proper punishment for this unacceptable behavior?

The porn was sent to colleagues on school computers during school hours in Blairsville, Ga.
School Superintendent Tommy Stevens said the pictures were sent by Union County High School Principal Ed Rohrbaugh. The school board suspended the Rohrbaugh for five days, but he is now back from suspension. After the incident, the school board renewed his contract for next year.

They RENEWED HIS CONTRACT?!

Here are some comments made in support of children being free from this madness while at school:

Sandra Boyer said, “Nothing short of termination is appropriate.”

James Carter said, “It can’t be tolerated. And the school board’s only action was to suspend him for five days.”

Critics of Rohrbaugh said it’s hard to teach students to stay away from pornography when the principal is passing it around in e-mails. “The principal of Union County High School essentially destroyed his credibility at the school with the students,” Carter said.

The board also clarified its policies to indicate school computers are only supposed to be used for school related issues.

The school board is trying desperately to sweep this under the rug and I beg you to help us keep it out in the open until it is dealt with. First of all, we need to contact the school, the school board, and most importantly, Principle “Porn Passer” himself. Secondly, we bloggers and new media members need to unite and come together for the good of the common cause.

This issue is thin ice and the short suspension and contract renewal is barely a slap on the wrist. Despite the fact that the porn was only sent to colleagues, to me this is a pedofile-in-the-making. It’s only a matter of time. Arrest is not warranted, but termination is.
