Resignation & Fights At La Follette


The same day principal John Broome resigned, last friday, three fights broke out, leaving many students, staff and parents wondering if they are related.

Mitch weber discovered the fights ended with two students in trouble with the law and one teacher injured.

Since the school year started, we've reported on rising violence at La Follette - a student pulling a knife on another student, a fight in the hallway involving girls.

Today, the district denied the principal's resignation and the fights last week are connected.

As school got out this afternoon at La Follette High School. Many students knew why we were there. Damian Clendening found out today his new principal isn't coming back.

I have to agree with Phil M that the Administration deserves "some level of credit" for addressing this now, rather than later. Tim had some useful comments on the challenging job that is an urban high school principal.
